I’m going out to the 1000 yard range tomorrow. Does that count as distance?

We put flags out at 6 or 7 small country cemeteries last week and will pick them up sometime this week.

We had church at our church yesterday for the first time since all this started. We helped to tape off every other pew and tried to maintain the social distancing, but since most of us are friends and had been hanging out together over the last few weeks anyway it didn't make much difference.

After we got home sardog tilled what he could of our poor garden. Not sure what we have planned for today. It's supposed to rain off and on so may just have to kick back and drink a couple cold beers after while.

That sounds a little too close Paul
You should make it 1500 yards just to be safe

I heard the same thing. State guidelines say that bars, gyms, pools, and 300 win mag must be at least 1,200 yards apart

Same here. We shot 1,000 yard F class match Sun. Saw many old faces and had a good time. Saw many hand shakes.

My son works at the state park here, has a largish reservoir, bass and trout fishing, 4 camp grounds plus some ďprimitiveĒ camping, an ATV area and a 3D archery range.

They had to turn people away, it was so busy.

As I was coming home from some shopping down in the city yesterday afternoon, the lanes going the other way were solid traffic for almost 25 miles. Worst Iíve ever seen. May have been partially due to a camper trailer that came off the hitch and rolled over a few times. Thanks to modern BS, they just stop everyone until they are done cleaning up, rather than pushing it over and working to keep people moving. We missed that, just saw it coming down the hill on a flat bed wrecker, and then watched stupid people trying to leapfrog that line of traffic for the next 20 miles.
