    So what are some things that we can currently get good deals on due to COVID-19?

    Obviously, asprin, cleaning supplies, TP and PPE are not at their cheapest right now. Seems to be some sales on outdoor clothing and gear though. Purchased a couple SUPs for taking the toddlers on the water this summer and saved a good chunk from last summer prices. Any good deals on camping stuff? We had ordered a little travel trailer but it has been delayed. Probably need some dishes and a travel grill...stuff we had budgeted for already.

    Gotta try to support some of the small outdoor companies that we want to make it through this...along with take out from our favorite places in town.

    So you're saying nationally we have a lot of high deductible plans and really shitty coverage with high copays and low employer contributions.

    Checks out. Thank you, captain. Carry on.

    I just bought some new road cycling clothing from https://us.lapassione.cc/
    They are an Australian company but all of the products drop ship from Manerba Del Garda which is just outside of Milan. Looks like nice quality stuff and not stupid expensive.

    Well....there were several mags that quoted the article and appeared to not understand that the article was talking about combined out of pocket for private insurance. That is why I commented...many probably did not click the actual link and read the details. The article is not saying that you individual would have to pay $20K/$95K.

    Southwest has been having a big sale on tickets and you don't have to use them anytime soon.

    Nice. Man, the Aussie are getting double whacked with the latest events...tough times for everyone, but they were already going through some shit.

    I wish the airlines would allow for people to book flights more then 6 months out. Booking for next summer would be a no brainer.

    Here's another website with interesting visualization tools: http://91-divoc.com/pages/covid-visualization/

    It uses the Johns Hopkins CSSE dataset. Interesting to look at the data normalized by population.

    That site should come with a warning before you click the "linear scale" button on any of the graphs.

    How are the stocking levels up in Aspen? I keep praying we can somehow stop the spread in the valley and stay locked down. If we can't do it in a valley that currently has one way in and one way out...big cities don't stand a chance.
    My point is why should anyone be shopping for 1 or 2 days? Is it that difficult to plan at least a week of meals? These are the simple things that everyone should be doing.

    Stock here is pretty decent. Still no Clorox wipes and a couple other items.

    Well you can't have a screwdriver without orange juice. Clearly it was an emergency.

    Agreed, I work with log scales all day long and have a pretty good handle on how they translate in terms of real numbers but every time I switch to linear scale I just recoil in fear.
