    100, down to 50, then bam. We were good in the morning, then someone at BLM (not at the local office, higher up) pulled the plug. :dunno

    EDIT: Local office did pull the plug. :hair

    Chicken Little Twinkies!

    They're all running scared at the moment. This was Sam's Club in ABQ at 8:59 this morning.

    We're half way up the line. That fellow thought it noteworthy enough to also snap a pic.

    The freakout could get worse. We're provisioned for about a month. Beyond that it's zombie time!

    Ten days ago my wife watched people fight over water at Sam's. Like they don't have running water at home!

    They are not keeping their social distance.

    Not sure what part people doesn't understand about avoiding crowed places. Parking lots of Walmart and Albertsons always full. Town is full of Spring Breakers which doesn't help either...

    People forgets that there's still around meat markets, small grocery stores, fruit stands, etc... where I think is safer to buy (food isn't touched or manipulated so much). Plus you support small businesses and buy from local farmers. From my side, big chains can go to hell.

    Love 'em or hate 'em, but when you want - or need - a big variety of bulk items inside of an hour they are hard to beat.

    Indeed. Unless you spend another hour reading labels. Last time I was in Sam's, 95% of the frozen fish was coming from China, as an example.

    Sorry for the subject deviation. Back to the thread.

    I just gave him a hard time, so he let me set one section. Of course it looked like an AMatuer section, but very hard.

    Evidently I understood it wrong. Local BLM pulled the SanYo plug, not a muckety-muck. Anger and frustration clouded my understanding, apologies everyone.

    I would like to get out for awhile and get away from the daily freak out that is going on around us. We'll see how things are come Sunday morning.

    Everyone is gonna have to cool it for three or four weeks.
    There is talk of closure of intrastate hwys.

    The Toni Bou video of social distance should be an inspiration to us all. Stay home and hone your skills whether riding or mechanicing.

    I can’t imagine the implications to the supply chain but who knows what will happen. This is a very fast and fluid situation and we haven’t seen anything like in any of our lifetimes.
