    You are correct, the California fruits are spreading the disease nationwide

    Sound like baskin Robbins, they had all 31 flavors in the shipping area. Bad place for me

    Yes, I love being in China. Usually spend 3 mos. there every year. I own 3 homes in China, so that makes it relaxing.
    Just waiting for this Covid to subside a little so we can travel without the long quarantines. Friend of ours went to Shanghai to visit her parents and had to quarantine 1 week in San Francisco and then 1 month in Shanghai before seeing her parents.

    When do you think you can travel overseas again?
    When Covid hit, I already had 2 suitcases packed, weighed, and strapped. They're still sitting that way in my closet.
    Don't have to unpack them because they're full of stuff I'm leaving over there in my house.

    In my case, come November, I'm out of the truck for a year! My CDL expires early next year and I havn't had the shots. So I have some real thinking to do as to whether or not I'm going to ever drive again. I thought I was going to go back with Knight in July, but at the last minute they said "we're going to pass on your application". This was the day before my flight, but I managed to get a full refund. Anyway, I can live cheap in the Philippines, but I like the option to make money driving on my own terms. Meaning when I want to work, I go back to the USA and work for 4 or 5 months and then go back overseas and live large for 6 months or more. It was nice to have that option before the world lost its will over covid19.

    Trillium will probably work with you. Work when you want to.
    Yeah, I love being able to travel, especially overseas. Covid really messed that up; at least for now.

    I was living in Vietnam until this past summer when they went full retard with the lockdowns. Barely escaped! I love that part of the world but sadly times have changed and I don't see it getting back to normal anytime soon. Unless you plan to get jabbed every six months, download all their contact tracing apps onto your devices, quarantine and wear a mask everywhere. Sucks the joy out of it for me. No thanks. Might wander south of the border at some point but that's it. God bless America!
