We were in Stockholm for last week when that announcement was made and my buddy was livid. He said they were calling it "for safety" and he said that's bullsheet. The fact is they don't want tourism. They don't want people from other areas to visit and that is not a bad stand to make if you think of it. Just get out and ride bumps like the old days and pack your lunch and fuel. Still a few weeks or more left 'Nocket and north.

Trust me the county wants tourism they are always friendly and welcoming. They did shut down for safety reasons. They hate it as much as the rest of us do. Trust me they would rather be open and busy and making money then closed and doing nothing.

Just got back yesterday from the Northern Door Inn in Fort Kent. Believe me when I tell you there is plenty of season left up there and I'm sure they aren't happy about what's going on. I dont know if there will be any chance for us all this year but I know for a fact our group is returning next year because it was just an incredible weekend up there. Even on friday with the rain we were still able to have a fantastic time.

Of course they want tourism, but they don't want Covid-19! I know they want tourism, you kidding me?
