Fact, the TP industry knows pretty well how much TP to make in a year and most of our paper is made here in the USA. It's a simple population and poop formula which doesn't change with the CV unless people start using it for things for which it's not intended which is fairly unlikely. As a result, the TP shortage is of our own making and not rational. The TP makers won't make more because there is no need. The current problem comes in delivery as hoarders have stripped the shelves.

Now, paper towels is a whole other problem because we've become cleaners like never before. :rolleyes:

The WheelPro truing stand is finally complete. I hope to give it a whirl this afternoon. Also, please note, I am particularly proud of my backdrop.

My dad, DM, graduated from the 44th pilot class, in 1944. And he also went to war in 1944. DM 44 was his license plate for his entire driving career, once he returned to civilian life. The Chevrolet folk were distant relatives. Our car has one of their license plate frames still.

The ambulance driving down the hill was not making haste.

I was on Soledad around 9:00 and heard sirens, was this about that time? I have ridden on that road since the 80s and don't remember the numbers of racers like there have been lately. Angeles Crest always has them and some of the other roads but that road, not so much.

No, guys. The model includes no actual data on what people are doing in a given state. These are the same what ifs for all states. All that differs by state is current estimated cases and number of beds.

The last website you posted had a peak around April 20. This one, with the least restrictive (limited action) scenario, says it won't peak until May 11. With (in TN) 72000 deaths. wut

I should probably be more worried about getting sick than I am.

I spent so much time planning my 45 mile ride that I didn't have time for it. Got out for a nice 32 miler instead.

And Velo Vol says that I don't look Asian enough. Sheesh.
