Are people wearing masks? Pretty much everyone is doing it here. We've got outdoor spots reopen at limited capacity, and so far no news on anything further. Looking like schools may not even reopen fully in fall.

Most places have had a mix of people wearing masks and not, more liberal areas have more masks and restrictions and more conservative areas don't care. Currently working in Utah and no one, not even employees, wear them, and you get some looks if you are.

Counterpoint: spent the last couple of months boondocking northward in UT from St. George to Logan. The only place employees were not masked was one NAPA parts store. Otherwise 100% masked employees everywhere I went.

Outdoors folks aren't masked. Some percentage of people in enclosed places are, I'd say 1/3rd. No one looked twice at folks in masks. Many stores have signs encouraging mask use. A minority required one for customers and employees both.

Crossed into ID in late June. Same general scenario so far.

I'm working as a long haul truck driver and I work out of Dallas. Texas pretty much requires a mask to enter any business. Some businesses don't really say anything if you don't wear one. I just wear a skank around my neck and pull it over my face when necessary. I was never a big on skanks when I was traveling although I usually wore one in the desert for obvious reasons. I don't mind going along with the mask thing mainly because I like to be considerate and a lot of people are legit freaked out. The problem for me is going to be when I'm minding my own business and random people try to start bossing me around - I just don't have the personality to deal with that. I've been to probably 30 states including all of the hotspots since this thing broke out and I've either already had it or I can't get it so personally I'm not worried but I respect that some people are.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    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.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    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.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    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.
