But that is NOT what the authorities are saying. Again, I quote:
"They are not saying you can not do this, you are allowed to, just be smart, practice social distancing, etc.... Don't be a total bonehead like the folks at the River this past weekend."
I get it, there are going to be boneheads out there, but they are so easily avoided. You just have to go out with the mindset that I may not be doing this. TBD once I arrive and take a look at the crowding. Most of what I do is sans crowds anyways. Most places I hike, I might see a half dozen people on any given day. There are places where I'll see the crowds (not going there these days).
I mean, if we are going to go along the lines of none of us know... And I do agree, none of us really do know, I guess I should be breaking out my asteroid shield as well, because, I just don't know an asteroid won't hit my house. These guidelines come to us from the best minds we have, the CDC, etc.... I take their guidelines as the minimum we need to do, and to be fair, I'm shuttered up in my house and have been for a day or so. But I am also gonna get outside and breath in some fresh air, well away from others, according to government guidelines.
Well, the WMNF statement says all but don't go out based on my read. Granted, there's no real way to "close" a forest.
