Collision repair as usual here and doubt it will change since we’re considered “essential” people need there cars. Work has slowed down a bit past week or two which sucks being a flat rate tech but we’ve been balls to the walls since October so a slow down is kinda nice for a little while to rest a sore body but I don’t care for the low pay checks but I guess it’s better than none.

I work from home (Accounting) husband is working (essential, elevator adjuster) so business as usual. Except now my extended family is quarantined at home now.

I feel like crap, but it's seasonal allergies.

I've got tons of things to do at home. THAT never changes LOL

Lighten up Francis.

I said "sleds being trailered with no cover whatsoever". I was NOT referring to open trailers. I used an open trailer myself for years, but at least I put a canvas cover on my snowmobile. When I see an open trailer, going down the road, with no salt shield and not even a canvas cover (on a new sled), I assume that the owner of the snowmobile is so economically strapped that they cannot even afford a $99 canvas cover to protect their sled from the salt spray getting into every nook and cranny on the machine.

And you don't need to ride like an idiot to NEED a TekVest, because you never know when a deer is going to pop out of nowhere or what the idiot coming the other way on the other side of that blind hill or corner is going to do. Knowing how a TekVest can protect you for life ending injuries, I assume the only reason that someone would not wear one is because they think a $300 TekVest is too expensive and they can't afford one.
