What is everyone's thoughts about the outdoor community attitude toward COVID? In my townhouse complex there is no shortage of garages filled with bikes, ski gear, etc, but that "can't hold me back spirit" seems to come with a pretty lax attitude towards COVID safety. Throughout the pandemic families near me have still been meeting in their yards or on the street and setting up games for the neighborhood kids when we were not supposed to and nothing seemed to change much. The other day one of my neighbors was being dropped off by a buddy after a day of touring, he grabbed his skis out of the back and then leaned in to the truck (no masks of course) to tell another guy in the back that I couldn't see that "it was great to meet" him.
I take extra precautions because my wife is high risk, but it is frustrating when I have avoided a lot of human interaction in 2020 only to see the numbers jump up because some people just had to have that big dinner party, or meet their friends at a cabin for a couple of days. It seems like anyone that they want to meet is suddenly "in their bubble".
