Three mile walk on the Staball Road in Ellsworth today. Saw two other like minded souls. Good dirt road graded by local construction company. Then fussed with a particularly fussy eggplant parmigiana with oven roasted marinara. We rode through the city on the way home. Grocery stores were pretty busy.

Default How have you been occupying your time in isolation?

1) watched the entire post season run of the 2004 Red Sox on You Tube, cue up '07 tonight.
2) as it looks like I'm staying in NC for the foreseeable future, roto tilled garden, ordered plants online.
3) washed and waxed two motorcycles, wifes car, took cover off old Camaro and detailed it (I dropped the top and went up on the Blue Ridge Parkway yesterday as it was almost 65 here) I never stopped anywhere. Cabin fever!
4) continued to pack up shop in case I actually sell my house here.
5) continue to look at garage plans for my house in Maine.
6) I speak daily to my granddaughter in NC, and grandson in New Zealand about once a week.
7) eat/cook/bake entirely too much!
8) look at this and my old Chevy truck and Indian motorcycle forums several times a day.

Just thought I'd post this on here and see what you guys/gals are up to!
My apologies to American Girl, after I posted this I saw here topic of a similar nature.

Red sox on youtube is a good idea.
I was born in Manchester UK so Man city youtube vids for me.
I just bottled up 3 gallons of home brew probiotic ginger ale.
Making a big batch of curry chicken, if the virus doesn't kill me the curry will.
I'll play piano later.
I'm a retired pastry chef, I put baking videos on youtube when I can get ingredients.
I don't trust incoming packages so no mail order ingredients for me.
Come to think of it, I do this stuff all year long, no major changes.
Life in Maine is definitely the way life can be.

Pretty much the same for me on my little piece of the big woods.We do get cable so im inundated with enough info.
Usual spring for an isolated little farmer means yard work,repairs,getting garden ready,future projects etc.
Trying to stay in life natural rhythm vs the self educed panic i feel if i keep Cnn or FOX on to long.
Can you say Zen gardening.

Checked out a cabin on a mountaintop. No human being for miles. Now, THAT's isolation. Had to do it before the SNOWPOCALYPSE hits on Friday.

My wife used to have to go to an office in Liverpool a few times yearly. I used to tag along. Saw a few Liverpool games, I believe the guy who owns them owns the Red Sox. You like Rugby? When visiting my in-laws in New Zealand onver the years I caught quite a few All Black games. It would be nice to watch some of your videos, could you send me a PM with a link to them?
Thanks,
Pete
