You dont need a trailer to ride you need to lighten up we need more riders not less so if they can get any sled and reg it and ins get a helmet and lets go ride. U dont need a 50,000 pickup and a 5,000 trailer or a 14,000 sled. Lets get back basics so we can get more riders.

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.

Same here. I am essential. I do machine work and cylinder head stuff for some auto repair shops, and I have a few projects for local farmers. I am essential too.

I hear ya. I just got notified today that my pay will be cut and no idea on when Iíll be able to go back to work. Probably more cuts coming even after I go back, as well. Already being told that this whole fiscal year will be affected. Now I just gotta hope that the wife gets laid off and not let go from her job.

Bummer, i would have expected any of the health care people to be safe from job cuts, especially as this government package is supposed to help fund hospitals.

Iím considered essential (somehow), but in a 100% commission position, and our sales are down 90% in two weeks

My best friend works for a large, industrial HVAC contractor mostly spending his week running between 4-5 factories doing repairs and preventative maintenance. 4 of the factories are food processing facilities, none of which planned to shutdown.

Well last Friday, he got laid off due to a corporate knee jerk decision. He pointed out to his employer, that stuff breaks every day in their customer's large factories and customers are going to be upset that their on-site support is not readily available. It fell on deaf corporate ears.

Well, they called him this morning, begging him to come back to work on Monday because, as he predicted, stuff broke every day in their customer's large factories and customers are now pissed that their on-site support was not there to keep them up and running.

He will now work 3-4 weeks of paid overtime to get caught up after sitting home for a week.

Corporate idiots!!!

Right, considering the hospitals are being overrun, you would think they would need anyone willing and able.
