  • Chinese Virus hits my family.

    A close family member (my niece) has tested positive.
    We're very close and she stops by 2 or 3 days a week on her way home from work. Mrs. Pony & I were to her house last Sunday after Church services & had lunch with her & her 2 grown kids.
    So, we've been told to isolate for 2 weeks. Mrs, Pony works from home, so it won't be a problem for her.I'm retired, so I'll probably spend most of my "isolation" on my Stratoliner.
    We're both seriously pissed that we won't be able to make the N/W StarFest. We've done a lot to get ready for the trip.New tires & brakes, oil & filters changed on both scooters. Brake/clutch fluid flushed on both. New tires & brakes on the F150. Trans & diff serviced. New tires,wheel bearings, and tail/brake lights for the trailer. Got a friend lined-up to house/dog-sit.
    Hopefully, all this shit will be behind us by this time next year. We're still looking forward to the HoeDown. We'll just have to wait a little while.
    I love the smell of smoked pork in the morning !

      Just isolate on the road and in your truck. You’ll be fine by the time you reach OR! You could also just go get tested.

      Seems like if you been around the niece so much you know if you where symptomatic by now. Is your Niece showing symptoms? How long did the test say the virus had been in your niece. Its bummer for all that effort and having to cancel

        Strangest thing...neither my wife or myself (nor my niece nor her son or daughter) have any symptoms. I have major doubts about this diagnosis. But, I'll wait 'till we're tested to solidify my decision about all this.

      I think it's wise for you guys deciding to stay close to home. Last thing you would want is to come down with symptoms while away on the road. Especially since some people are going from getting symptoms to flat out sicker than sick in a matter of days.

        I think theres a lot of people that will test positive for it or for having it, that aren’t symptomatic, just like the cold virus. Our bodys are stronger then what he think. Im curious to your results. If you test positive for it can you clarify with your doctor about what the positive means. Does it mean you, have it, had it, or shits about ready to hit the fan. Good luck and stay healthy

              What Steve says! They are saying positive for any test these days just trying to pump the numbers up. Don't let the Nazis ruin your plans.

                Your right. I don't know what to think of all of this. Brother in law told me a person took 10 tests under different names in Texas and the results were 3 positive, and 7 negative. Go figure?

              Well. How did the testing go? Got any results? How is your daughter doing?

                  My niece was retested yesterday (Wed) & tested negative.
                  I have some serious doubts about this entire episode. None of us have shone any symptoms at all.

                So what’s the verdict CP? Positive or negative?

                  My wife’s grandpa just passed a few days ago. They are saying pneumonia caused by the virus. Not sure I believe it but he tested positive after a surgery on his knee two months ago, was sick on and off since then. Hopefully your situation gets better!
