Ah, go on! make one for the malingerer! You are irrepressible, Jeff. Thanks for that certainty in this uncertain time...
They don't prevent you from being exposed to the virus - that's a risk you take by leaving home.and yet some are saying the mask does not prevent you from being exposed?
I wouldn't worry about coming into contact with the crew from the ISS, everybody else I treat with suspicion - besides it's great fun to walk into your bank and not be asked to remove facial coverings in order that "they may serve you better"so, in other words, everyone is suspected of being a spreader of the virus? I live in Ontario Canada every day I go out on long hikes and am in excellent health for a seventy-five-year-old man and am on no meds. This would have been my Twelfth Camino if the pandemic had not prevented me. Next year for sure let's be hopeful pilgrims.
I hate it when people try to crash in on a crisis - the Olsen masks I've been making for family and friends cost me less than £1 ($1.50 CDN) each, discounting time spent - and that's buying the cloth retail off of ebay! So good for you David - try tucking a non-woven layer (diaper liner, coffee filter cone even kitchen towel) between the Buff layers - the Buff is made from fairly open weave material - and junk it when you wash your Buff (ie after every use).Until I got a better mask, I was using my Camino buff folded over twice as a face mask.
Of course, now I am tempted by this: https://caminodesantiagolife.com/products/camino-camino-sublimation-face-mask or this: https://www.redbubble.com/i/mask/Bu...-Compostela-Spain-by-STdesigns/38954125.9G0D8 or these: https://www.redbubble.com/people/kriskuhn/shop?artistUserName=kriskuhn&iaCode=u-mask
Actually... it was intended to make people laugh! 2 of my Mottoes of Life:I don't know why exactly, but this made me laugh, out loud!!! Sorry, no intention to offend! But still laughing..........
Ah! Our Queen of the Tie-DyeI've been making masks too. I use a pattern similar to the Olsen mask, but I like the fit better. I am using old sheets that I dye to make the masks. So the cost is very low, and I have fun dyeing the fabric to create unique designs.
I use elastic hair ties for ear loops, and they are very comfortable.
Something that I add to my masks is a neck string, so that when I'm outside walking with no one around I can wear the mask as you would a necklace, or eyeglasses on a cord. Then as I get near other people I can quickly put it on my face.
Here (in Montana, USA) they are saying that non medical masks are primarily useful in preventing you from touching your own face—to help stop you from infecting yourself from contact with contaminated surfaces (until you can wash your hands), rather than to prevent direct infection from another person. . .wish I had a Camino mask instead of the one I sewed together from a pillow case!They don't prevent you from being exposed to the virus - that's a risk you take by leaving home.
They might prevent infected people from spreading the virus and also help protect you when somebody sneezes and coughs in your direction.
The best bet - stay home and wash your hands (a lot).
Love that Waylon Jennings tune!Actually... it was intended to make people laugh! 2 of my Mottoes of Life:
1. Laughter is the Best Medicine and
2. Laughter is a Shortest Distance between two people
(of course the third one is "I know that I am crazy but thats the only thing that keeps me from going insane"...but somehow it immediately invokes ###1 & 2.... )
I never wear my mask outdoors, only in essential stores and I rarely go. I use the Walmart grocery app most of the time.Although I carry a mask that Peg made I don't use it when walking in the woods. When meeting other walkers I prefer getting far off trail for a bit and risking the ticks than wearing the mask.
It is a bit weird though giving people a friendly greeting while scurrying away from them.
Ok — now I get it. Is that an Urban Jungle? Staying home and wearing a mask in the market must be having a strange effect on my sense of humor. FYI: we are still in red zone in this part of Pennsylvania and people are expected to wear a mask in public.
Gracias. Ya pusieron un sitio de web donde tienen de toda clase. Estoy un poco lejos de Lisboa-en GuatemalaLo encontré en una tienda muy pequeña en la calle donde vivo en Lisboa. No se trata de una marca conocida, entonces no sé si se puede comprarla en otros países o lugares, disculpa.
