    Question about raintrousers

    I’m in the rain trousers camp. Lots of section hiking on the Appalachian Trail, plus three Caminos. Took an Atlas poncho on the first two Caminos in addition to the rain pants. Personal choice but having tried both, I am firmly in the rain pants camp.

    April too early?

    Doctor, I hate to respectfully disagree with you but I must. You do not have an obligation to assist me or advise me unless I am your patient. If you get into your car and I get into mine how I drive could impact your life, or how you drive your car can impact me. But that is not the issue...

    Got my first Covid-19 shot!

    Received my first one yesterday. No side effects at all. As a health care provider I have attended three online seminars on COVID and the development of the vaccine. I hope Spain will open its borders to those of us who have received the two shot protocol.
