FB post from Joe yesterday-
Most businesses don't care where you're coming from so long as you wear a mask and don't be an idiot.Won't be in ME at all this year if the two week quarantine mandates stay in place. I'm sure that means they will have a record snow year....
You do realize there are State Stormtroopers enforcing these orders with huge fines on businesses everywhere right?Most businesses don't care where you're coming from so long as you wear a mask and don't be an idiot.
I am hopeful that a lot of the places in the woods will practice civil disobedience regarding any restrictions they don't deem necessary for safety. They really need a profitable season up there.
Sad to hear about Parlin... Hopefully enough places stay open to still be able to get a bite to eat on the trails
I didn't know it was that bad out there especially outside of the more populated areas... sad to hearYou do realize there are State Stormtroopers enforcing these orders with huge fines on businesses everywhere right?
I now where a mask going into businesses NOT because I believe they should be required (or really do anything to keep anyone of us safe), but because I do not what to bring “government wrath” on any of these business owners....and in most states they can be charged with fines IF patrons are not following the mask rules (none are laws, but carry fines good luck fighting).
The funny thing is now our Balaclava’s will count as a face covering
At least the lodging will be open. Hopefully they make it through ok financially.
As of right now all of New England(except RI), NY and NJ do not need to quarantine in Maine. That is subject to change of course.Won't be in ME at all this year if the two week quarantine mandates stay in place. I'm sure that means they will have a record snow year....
I'm mostly limited to weekend riding, Places around Rangeley typically have wait times anywhere near the lunch rush and some of them are so small I don't know how they would operate with reduced capacity and still make money. We will find out I guess, I wish them all the best and hope to patron as many as possibleStage 4 reopening starts 13 October. Being a mostly mid-week rider, I can't think of a time I have been in a restaurant in Maine that was near 50% capacity. Well except maybe the Stress Free Moose. Plus indoor service for bars and tasting rooms is expected to start 02 November. Travelers from states not on the approved list (sure to change by then) will need to file a ( Certificate of Compliance PDF) to get lodging.
I hope Parlin Lodge changes their mind during this winter as that is one of our favorite stops.
General Mills at her best keeping the boot on the throat of businesses.Seems as though Maine is out there making it tough to run a business according to this.
