    I made beef jerky in my oven. Literally. It's too salty. If you don't think this is skiing related you need pocket meats

    East MF Coast 19/20.

    Gov Scott specifically carved put an exception for ďexerciseĒ in the Stay Home order.

    That being said, Iím turning down a friends offer to go into the BC for a ski and hopping on the bike instead.

    Itís easier for me to personally justify being in the E/R if i get hurt on a bike ride than if I have to be rescued by SAR in the woods. I donít need to be more of a burden on an already overwhelmed health care system.

    itís all a personal decision. i wonder how far those people are travelling to the bush though, and i doubt theyíve dialed it back to a three or four. like what would happen if bootpack guy has a heart attack, it is probably his biggest mission of the year.

    eta: little stir crazy and annoyed so many people are out walking these dense petri streets.

    Bootpack guy seemed to be an in shape early 20's guy. Tons of folks not able to ascend much more than 500' of vert are more likely to blow a valve.

    The Daywrecker family who came across Village Run are suspected shuttlers

    Agree with this and Peruvian's thoughts also. If I lived where vtf does and had access without a drive I would be out regularly also. Yesterday was the first time I had the opportunity to actually get out for a few hours during the week due to work constraints and I decided the hour to 2hrs (depending on where I went) in drive time really wasn't a sound decision under the current circumstances so I went for a run/hike with the dogs instead. Not the activity I would have chosen in normal times but for me, much more responsible in the current world.

    Think about the potential impact your decisions will have on others for the next few weeks+, both positive and negative. Be smart and safe all!

    I thought it was generally a bad idea to announce that you'll be needing to defend yourself online. Something about premeditation...

    Well this is interesting. Ran into Montpelier to get once last load of stove pellets to make sure we've got plenty. 2 cops at the end of my dirt road, and 2 more parked at the roundabout on rt. 2. Looks like they're really going to be cracking down on people driving around unnecessarily and being out of their homes. Hope my gravel bike rides don't raise any attention.

    one thing i know about cops:
    if they ask for ID, best to have one....

    gravel bike, skateboard, hoverboard,
    bring ID, you want those boys in blue to know
    you live right up the street

    ok, back to where i belong

    yea thought about getting some tuesday but too much too soon right now.
    not worth risking going off the road in the mtns, or getting hurt on the hill (sheesh, wasn't even imagining the hazmat suits!), or having the border closed on the way back...checkpoints...all that.

    gonna simulate my spring ski days as best i can on the bike. minus the beers. maybe.

    DPS issues guidance on enforcement of 'Stay Home, Stay Safe' order

    STATE OF VERMONT
    DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY

    Vermont Department of Public Safety issues guidance on enforcement of 'Stay Home, Stay Safe' executive order
    Law enforcement will rely on educating the public and receiving voluntary compliance as Vermonters unite to care for one another


    WATERBURY, Vt. (March 25, 2020) — The Vermont Department of Public Safety on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, issued guidance to local police departments regarding potential enforcement of Gov. Phil Scott's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" executive order, announced Tuesday, March 24, and effective at 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 25.

    Today, DPS and the Vermont State Police — the largest law-enforcement agency in the state — recommended to Vermont municipal leaders and law-enforcement executives that enforcement of this executive order be handled primarily through education and voluntary compliance.

    "I have tremendous faith in Vermonters' shared ability to follow these directives in order to save lives, and to support each other and their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic," Governor Phil Scott said. "Vermont is a small state with close-knit communities known for looking out for the wellbeing of our neighbors. When we tell people to stay home to save lives, I'm confident Vermonters will do the right thing."

    Public Safety Commissioner Michael Schirling said that law enforcement and the public will be partners in this process.

    "Vermonters are really coming together to heed the orders that have been issued to date," Commissioner Schirling said. "We expect the same will happen with this additional order. We believe that education and voluntary compliance is the key as Vermonters unite during this difficult time."


    WHAT IS THE ORDER?
    Gov. Scott's order directs Vermonters to stay at home, leaving only for essential reasons, critical to health and safety, such as grocery shopping, seeking medical care, or exercising outside. If leaving the home, Vermonters should adhere to social distancing policies, including remaining 6 feet from others (except for those with whom they share a home), regularly washing their hands, and avoiding touching their faces.

    All businesses and nonprofits not expressly exempted in the order must suspend all in-person business operations. Operations that can be conducted online or by phone, or sales that can be facilitated with curbside pickup or delivery only, may continue.

    The order contains exemptions for businesses and entities that provide services or functions deemed critical to public health and safety, along with economic and national security. This includes — but is not limited to — health care operations; retail that serves essential human needs, such as grocery stores, pharmacies and hardware stores; fuel products and supply; maintenance of critical infrastructure; news media; financial institutions; and transportation and critical manufacturing sectors. Travel to and from these exempt businesses and entities is permitted. For a full list, please review the order at this link.

    Leaving the home for exercise and outdoor activity is allowed, provided that people are adhering to appropriate social distancing. The order is in effect until April 15, 2020, though it may be extended or shortened as needed.


    HOW WILL THE ORDER BE ENFORCED?
    In instances where police officers observe or are made aware of people operating in violation of Gov. Scott's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order, law enforcement is encouraged to speak with the proprietor, staff, or group, provide a reminder of the new requirements, and assess voluntary compliance. Civil or regulatory mechanisms, specifically informing and educating those encountered in violation of the order about the mechanisms that may apply, could prove helpful. Again, officials expect the vast majority of compliance to be self-regulating.

    The executive order does not close roads, nor does it establish roadblocks, checkpoints or the authority to demand identification. Motor-vehicle and pedestrian traffic will continue as Vermonters engage in permissible activities outdoors and travel to and from businesses and entities that are continuing to operate under the order. Accordingly, the order does not establish cause to initiate a motor vehicle stop or detain people for questioning about their travel.


    WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS?
    Vermonters seeking additional information about the executive order should call 2-1-1, and visit the websites of Gov. Scott (governor.vermont.gov) and Vermont Emergency Management (vem.vermont.gov). Please do not call Vermont State Police dispatch.

    Commercial entities, nonprofits, employers and others with questions about acceptable continuation of business operations should contact the Agency of Commerce and Community Development via this online form: https://bit.ly/covid-vt-business-operations.

    there's also been a state trooper sitting on 242 in the center of town all morning, I've seen a fair amount of traffic rolling thru but he hasn't made any stops yet. Per the DPS update that VTF just posted, my guess is he's just there as a reminder.
