      I had plans to fish Leech this year in opener as my sister purchased a cabin last year there.  At this point I probably will not go on opener, unless thus dramatically change in the next month.     I am not so scared for myself, but wish not to pass it in to someone else.  I still work outside of home everyday so I may be more exposed than some.  I try to limit myself to the gas station and grocery store for public places.  I am sure I would certainly know if I got the virus with having a smokers lungs, and being over weight.  But hopefully my 42 year old body can still handle it?   My biggest fear at this point is, we are allowing our day to day lives to be controlled by our governments.  Not just by thier suggestions and best practices, but by executive orders with the penalty of the law.  We may be treading in dangerous territory.  All in our passive nature to protect each other.   We need to continue to be very careful of our individual impacts on others by being responsible humans.  By making a personal sacrifice we can help others, that is the responsible thing to do.  But we can't stop being the people we are, by fearing our mortality and giving up our rights and freedoms.    Opener is a small sacrifice for me, as is missing Rainy River, as would be missing turkey season if things would change, or a vacation in the future.  All small sacrifice by themselves, that I would be willing to voluntarily do based on the information provided me.  I feel, as individuals, we are more than capable of making those decisions wisely given the appropriate truthful information.  We don't need an entity to tell us what we can or can't do.   stay safe everyone.

      That's a logical explanation! Thanks for your patience with me! I do appreciate it!

      Yes no one including heath and economics experts can predict but like I stated this should be about balance and not about preventing.  If we were in prevention mode, it could drive the world into deep depression.  The desperation could lead to much bigger issues.  Desperate times leads to desperate measures.  Guns and ammo are flying off the shelf at the same rate as toilet paper.  Strange days indeed.   For those that are high risk, the advice does not change for you in any scenario.  You need to stay isolated until this is past us; that has to be frustrating and scary.  By slowing it down, that means staying in isolation longer.   I also feel terrible for the people living paycheck to paycheck now with no paycheck and trying to navigate the overwhelmed government system to get some much needed relief through unemployment checks.   Communities that are resourceful and find ways to operate effectively under social distancing guidelines will be fine.  Those that choose to shut down could face tough economic times ahead.

      Figured you might like that.  🤪  Fact is I like looking at the talent some people have painting these things. I'm always amazed when I go to a Muskie show also. Can't afford them, but like looking at them. 
    • smurfy
      my guess that unless your a member of seal team it would be impossible to get up!!!!!!!
    • smurfy

      so if this makes any sense, you guys make very valid points, on both sides. for me depends on the wave of the day is.   I believe they just don't know enough about this yet. one part of me says I don't want nothing to do with getting this, the other part, like wanderer says, i"m ok with getting it then moving on. really I or anyone can really control if you get it or not unless you don't leave your house house forever. I have a few of what they could consider underlying conditions, I had heart bypass surgery in 2011, I smoke and I have a very controlled case of diabetes but believe I am healthy enough to withstand this COVID-19 should I get it somehow.   as far as opener, I gave up going opener years ago. I just don't like the zoo at accesses or on the lakes. if I hit an access with no vehicles......i'm in heaven.

      Government organizations are starting to admit the probability of that scenario.     Like I’ve typed before, I’m concerned but not scared.  I’ve had my training to deal with this situation that “would probably never happen” and took it seriously.  Maybe that’s why I’m calmer than most about the actual virus.  Plus I don’t have underlying conditions that put me at a higher risk.  Things that I have to take care of are planned out and in motion to be as prepared as can be.  I can’t do anything more but manage the load and ride it out.   Not to curse myself but I told my wife last night, if I’m going to get this, I’m ready now.  But I’d prefer to hold off until the predicted peak is over.   @dutchboy II that’s probably considered a nonchalant view to you and some others but I AM looking weeks ahead at potential impacts that don’t involve my personal fishing opener.  I’ve been reading the forum comments and trying not to interject too much but sometimes a guy just has to share some actual experience and straight talk from the past weeks of being submerged in the subject.     I don’t seek information that aligns with my opinions, I let consistent information guide and sometimes change my opinions.
