Desiccants... you know, all those little bags packed in with just about everything you buy. You can either collect them throughout the year from all your purchases (keep them in a dry sealed bag) to place in the car later or buy them online.What are anti-humidity bags? Sounds like a good thing
Not my usual, but since the roads are rather clear, I'm doing all of my errands in the Porsche and taking the long route to get them done. I'm visiting markets that would normally be out of the way, but it's more fun to take the long way homeThere is a VERY pricy food market in Laguna Beach that I may go to in the Boxie...Normally about 20 miles from home, but I'm sure that I could make it 50 miles if I take the long way thru the hills!
@chester7, yes, what HooosierDaddy said, "Desiccants", couldn't think of the word. I use four of these. Although I get a bunch of little ones in things I order, these are easy to store and use.Desiccants... you know, all those little bags packed in with just about everything you buy.

You could also just get clay kitty litter and leave it in an open plastic container in the car. Exactly the same effect with much less fuss... just don't leave a window down, the cat might climb in and make a mess in his newly found poop bucket!
I suspect you are not using enough.... I only use the "saved" packets in my Ammo cans, Safe and gun cases because of their size. Well... I use to, you know, before the boating accident!
Travel papers are usually reserved for you to be traveling to do that essential service, not site seeing... just saying.
Considering that the emergency services are already overwhelmed dealing with Covid-19 wouldn't it seem 'reasonable' to reduce the chance of getting into an accident and requiring those services?I don't see why driving around in your car by yourself would not be allowed. You are not going to spread/catch covid-19 that way. It is basically the same thing as staying in your house.
My services are essential and my comments was in jest. I'm not out sight seeing, I'd rather not be out at all! In fact, I took my 718 and put it away in storage during this time.Travel papers are usually reserved for you to be traveling to do that essential service, not site seeing... just saying.
Apologies, sometimes 'jest' is hard to decipher in the written word... I too am part of essential services.My services are essential and my comments was in jest. I'm not out sight seeing, I'd rather not be out at all! In fact, I took my 718 and put it away in storage during this time.
Surprising the amount of people that just don't give a flying F and are out doing the normal rigamarole around here.
Some of us get it and there are those that don't or think it doesn't apply to them. IMHO I think that the time for suggested isolation has past and it now has to be ordered.Same here. It will be surprising if this issue doesn't become much more problematic. Astonished by the care-free attitude I'm seeing.
On March 14 I did the projection that if the 'death curve' is exponential, we will hit 1000 dead by April 3....
We all need to wake up, the shιt is real!
The death curve for the US is somewhat faster than exponential, for practical purposes we can assume it is exponential.
In March 14th I did some extrapolations (which assumes that the social distancing measures have limited results and no serious lockdown).
At the time, we had 57 dead in the US.
The data extrapolation showed 100 dead by March17 (we had 109)
1000 dead by April 3 (does anyone doubt we will hit that number when we have 419 by March 22 (yesterday)?
10000 dead by April 15 (nothing certain but death and taxes).
If you get it, the trend is one order of magnitude more deaths every 2 weeks. 100,000 dead by the end of April?
Pray to wherever you believe that we will get our act together and slow down this thing, so it does not become a conflagration that will consume us all.
I thought a new med was approved for generic manufacturing that was showing good results. Can't remember if it was Chloroquine or the Malaria treatment. Hopefully we can get more of that out to critical people and get them on the mend.On March 14 I did the projection that if the 'death curve' is exponential, we will hit 1000 dead by April 3.
On March 23 (2 days ago people) I redid the graph/extrapolation and the 1000 mark was moved forward to March 27-28!
Today, March 25, it looks like it will hit 1000 either tomorrow or early March 27...
My March 23 projection shows 10,000 dead by April 9 and 100,000 by April 23. An increase of one order of magnitude every two weeks.
I am not doing this to spread fear. The projections assume that we do nothing, or that our measures are ineffective like Italy, where they went to 'social distancing' and then 'lockdown' and the disease is running rampant.
Obviously, China's severe lockdown points to more effectiveness than Italy's or Spain's.
This means, it's up to us on how effective we can make the lockdowns
don't be lulled if your state doesn't show many people getting the sickness. Some may be to less testing, as we didn't have enough test kits early on. But, once you have some cases, you will get more. It is likely that those states with fewer cases are on some delay, but the disease is so infectious, that once started it takes draconian measures to stop it.
Lets hope that our researchers will find some medicines and ultimately a vaccine.
In the meantime,
Stay home, stay safe.
