Covid hitchhiking: what's it like now??? (1 Viewer)

So, I know this question was posted back in March, but I wonder what it's like now that we're in August? I was stuck in Honduras when all the shit went down back in March. I got back to the U.S. in May and I am still figuring out what post-covid U.S. really looks like... I've been stuck in charming Indiana ever since I got back, so my 2 questions are (1) What does it look like out west? And (2) What is it like hitchhiking these days and traveling in general? Also, extra credit if you can answer a 3rd question: Are there any, like, rainbow gatherings still happening? Not that I would go and spread my cooties around, but I'm just curious. I have no idea what to make of all this.
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

You came back to the states?

Cover your face, don’t touch your face, and stay safe.

1) hot Smokey and full of pandemic

3) don’t hang out in a large crowd.

i know this isnt exactly what you wanna hear. Summer time in the northern Rockies are still fun, just be cautious/safe.

I haven't been off the farm much in 6 months but I know that Rainbow is still kinda happening. Nationals was about 3-500 people I've been told and dramatic as fuck (as is tradition). Apparently lots of people are also posted up on properties in NM, TX and TN. Everyone I know from the event industry is sitting around loosing their minds. Seems like people keep trying to put on events then cancel them at the last minute.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
