March 28th was the last Hawaiian airlines flight from Seattle to Honolulu. A couple days before that was the last flight to Maui. These were A330-200s which seat something like 280 people. Several of them in the last days left with zero passengers, just the flight crews. Some say it was because people are required to be in quarantine for 14 days after landing which really wouldn't be that bad if you have a bungalow with a pool and view but it sucks if you are going for vacation and get stuck in a hotel room for 14 days.


Seatac is largely dead. flights have been cut to a minimum and are largely empty and the airlines are hemorrhaging money at a rate that cannot be sustained for very long.


The good news is Delta has resumed a few flights from SEA to Japan and South Korea which tend to pay for themselves in freight, which is probably the reason AA is willing to fly an empty Dreamliner to HNL, it was probably loaded with freight which would offset the lost revenue from the empty seats.

The paperwork we were handed at the airport, after we had our temperature taken, said we are to
"...Proceed directly from the airport to your designated quarantine location...
Remain in your designated quarantine location for a period of 14 days...
You may only leave your designated quarantine location only for medical emergencies or to seek medical care....
do not allow any visitors in our out of your designated quarantine location other than a physician, healthcare provider,..."

There was more paperwork at the (government) hotel I am staying at that basically said they are not servicing rooms for the first week after we are here and if we need anything, they will put it outside our door and we can put our trash outside the door.

I can see why NO ONE is coming here right now. Of the 9 people on our flight, 4 were with my team (including me) and 2 were obviously active duty Army. That means 3 were unknown, but very well could have been government travelers, too.

If the wife wasn’t working, I’d go play at cleaning my cabin and yard for the third freaking time since we bought it. My daughter in law and youngest grandson got stuck in the Philippines on the way back to Canada when their flight was canceled.

Crossing fingers/toes that your trip will be good/uneventful! Hopefully, everyone on the team and the ship stay virus-free!!

Virus danger and or no danger issues aside......


The Government sure has everyone trained already to:


Stay home and isolated,
Not care that they just borrowed another 2-3 Trillion dollars,
People adjusted to bare store shelves quickly,
You don't need to work, we'll extend unemployment and send stimulus checks,
Fear other people
Don't worry, new procedures will strip some more of your freedoms,


I guess next they will come up with a miracle cure and to be able to track who got it and who don't they will maybe chip people.
Then if you don't have the chip you won't be able to buy, sell or trade.


Sounds familiar, read something like this once...

They handed out 25 citations to folks @beach watching sunset or enjoying a family picnic out here in Encinitas a few days ago.
TOTAL BS!

A sheriff made a statement in riverside county may start handing out $1000 fines for not wearing a mask in public!?

This kinda crap is just crazy. I see lawsuits coming?

I believe TX was the first area...?

Pretty sure it'll be a requirement for all "essential" places everywhere very soon?? Meaning if you head to a grocery store etc. probably deny you entry without one???

It is here in SD county now, anybody that works in an "essential" place is required to wear one. Some places are turning people away if they don't have one on.

Have you ever heard of a non essential business? No because there is no such thing. Every business is supporting somebody or something. Some strange things are taking place.

Yesterday the wife and I drove up to Priest Lake to see if the snow had melted from the boat ramp. We would like to get our old boat out soon. There was a barricade blocking the road to the ramp and 4 signs stating there would be a 5 thousand dollar fine for using the lake and or boat ramp and that included even walking to it. . That it was to great a risk for the covid 19 virus spreading. One of the signs listed 3 dozen camp grounds that were also closed. Every one in the area all the way to the Canadian border.
Apparently the fish must have it also. Darn fish are not practicing aquatic distancing!! The nerve.. Just sitting there, gills a flapping away like nothing is wrong.

GOOD! how many people are dead because of how China handled this?



but the director of WHO can't praise them enough! im sure the fact that China is propping his country up has nothing to do with his glowing reviews.

That CNN Video was painful to watch. She needs to put her big girl pants and grow up. We live in a world where our kids are going to see scary things. Seeing your mom being taken care of shows them she is human, we have people that can help us, and we are mortal. SMH.

I have now read 2 studies (one on each coast) that show this virus is WAAAAaaaayyy more prevalent than we thought, which makes it wWWWWwwaaaaayyyyy less deadly. Here is and article on one of them. I can't find the other.
https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-01095-0
If mortality rate is the number of people that died from the virus divided by the number of people contracted the virus, then the number is getting teeny tiny at this point. We generally "know" the number of deaths is about 25K and at point the number of "confirmed cases" is totally irrelevant because it is completely slaved to the number of tests we have administered. Also, since we are only testing people we "think" have it, all those that had/have it and don't know it are not testing and completely skew the actual number of cases. I think these antibody tests are a more accurate way of testing how many people have/had it. If we are finding 30% of the population has/had it, that makes the mortality rate 25k/97,500,000 (30% of the population) or .00026. If you multiply that ratio forward (.00026) times the number of people in our country (325 Million), you get 85k deaths total if EVERYONE gets it which is more than 3 times the current death toll which means at this point, the chances of dyeing are even lower.

It's funny that most people read these studies and take it as "Oh my goodness! We need to stay hunkered down!!" (that's also how MSM is interpreting them). I read the articles about the studies and think, whelp, probably 1/4-1/2 of our 325 Million people population have had this and we have only had 25k deaths? You are more likely to die in a car wreck, suicide, Influenza/pneumonia (55k people died in 2017 from the flu, we are not even half way there yet), cancer, diabetes, etc. Is this worth absolutely destroying the economy and most of our savings/lives?

If the vast majority of people are getting it and do not even know it, does that mean we need to hunker down, or does that mean usually you don't even know you have/had it and it's not nearly as deadly as MSM is making it out to be? I get that it is stupid crazy contagious, but for those of us that work and pay taxes we need to get back to work or this county will fall apart. For those that are compromised or could not deal with a gnarly case of pneumonia, stay home, wash your hands, and avoid large groups; you get a pass, we all get it. Just like people going through Chemo, people on dialysis, people waiting for transplants.
