    Getting back to our national emergency... Time to reinforce the southern border?

    Of our northern neighbor, that is. Seems some folks are toying with an international incident at the still-closed border with our friendly neighbors to the north.

    https://www.npr.org/2020/08/02/89816...oss-the-border

    Is there somehow a lack of nice boating destinations on our side of the border? Or is it the allure of higher-priced Canadian booze and gasoline? Is it desperation for a Tim Hortons fix (hard to imagine, I know). Or is the fishing in Canada worth the risk? Are desperate American GS riders boat-smuggling their bikes into Canada? Or black-market PPE into the US? If caught, will they all blame their border transgression on the recent Garmin outage?

    We're gonna build a wall - and America is going to pay for it!

    But seriously, the article illustrates one of the reasons why America is still suffering with increasing infection rates. The boaters who turn off their transponders believe the rules don't apply to them.

    This border closure is a major pain in the a$$ for my riding plans. I have friends who want to come north and I thoroughly enjoy riding eastern Washington/Oregon and northern California. On the other hand, my province is virtually 100% open thanks to early, and continued, adoption of simple solutions - hand washing, social distancing, wearing a mask. I look forward to the day we can all get together again.

    And no dissing Tim Horton's!
