Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

Except it hasn't been couple of weeks, it has been a month since Georgia reopened. The overall trend in new cases has been downward and steady. In fact it mirrors the national trend with little jumps the first day of the week as pooled data comes in. Nothing at all near the apocalypse that good sci...

Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

I think Sweden is a really interesting case study. For those that haven't been following it, Sweden has implemented perhaps the least restrictions of any developed country. In other words, they volunteered to be the control group (not much of a lockdown) in this science experiment. Although deaths ...

Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

I'm surprised that any thinking person could not see this on their own. I, along with legions of others would love for things to go back to the way they were immediately if not sooner.

Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

snip It's also possible that whatever my family had was just a really odd cold and not COVID-19, but we'll probably never know at this point. Given the news that this virus may have been in the US around that time frame, it's a bit of a coincidence. Source that it was here in November ? I don't thi...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

Per NPR , The US should brace for another 100,000 more deaths from COVID-19. More stories on NPR . 330 million in UW x 50% infection rate (maybe not wave 1) x 2% mortality rate = 3 million dead in the US. use different assumptions, but, that 100,000 maybe low. Maybe our health care system will be a...

Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

1) If the official numbers the last few weeks are correct, mortality will be less than 2%. Very common at early stages to have the apparent mortality rate much too high, often 50 to 100% too high, because true # people with disease is unknown and deaths are known, especially while its growing. 2) Is...

Re: Inexpensive ruck options

I recommend the used ILBE, its an arcteryx design (beefy version of the Bora?). It has plenty of space, is very durable, excellent modern suspension. And its very heavy. High denier fabric = heavier and more durable. Big enough for a week, really big for just a 72 hour BOB. This one is on sale right...

Re: Help: Bag/pack options?

carrying your gear weight on your hips makes carrying loads a lot easier than carrying it on the shoulders. ALICE wasn't really designed to carry the pack on the hips like most modern packs. Alice was designed as a pack + belt and suspenders (LBE) setup. So, if you're looking to carry a lot of weigh...
