    Have been getting out on my bicycle recently, which means I can go further away from home. I don't normally like riding around on the road here (too many cars and not enough drivers paying attention) but I think i only saw 3 cars total last time. Anyway there is a local 2-year college in my neighborhood that has some scenic areas, and it's completely deserted right now. Note that in the one pic, I was trying to take a pic ahead of me but I was riding at the same time. It came out OK although I do actually have legs.

    @aho Unfortunately the mask also seems to signal to people whether or not you are onboard with social distancing. The people at the store that get right up on you never seem to have them on. @volvo240thebest I have found that a folded kleenex under the mask on the bridge of your nose seems to help with the fogging. It's not perfect but it is better.

    @dudewuttheheck Are people near you generally wearing masks when out? I think it's around 50% at best near me.
  5. I've got a pair of Sage denim that I got from Massdrop. I noticed that none of the buttonholes are reinforced (no stitching around the holes at all). This is the only pair I have that are like this. I can't help but think they're going to tear through eventually. Should I try and reinforce the holes myself?

    Here's my budget (cheap) stuff: Russell Athletic Bravestar (I don't really like these, but I already have them and I'm stubborn, so I'm going to wear them)

    No worries, I don't answer the door anyway! The town is called Wheaton. Basically directly west of downtown Chicago. If you're looking at a map I would say "Chicagoland" continues on past me to about St Charles or Geneva. And the passenger/commuter train that runs through my town goes out to Elburn.

    This is about the emptiest I've ever seen it, even when I've been out at 3 AM there are more cars normally. But it would be a good ride for sure! The scale is definitely different. I live in "Chicagoland" but it could take me an hour to get to Lake Michigan in Chicago. Most of the people I know in this area don't really go to Chicago any more (and not just because of the current events).

    I was out on my walk this morning and thinking about this thread. I don't really like where I live; I find almost everywhere else more interesting. I am trying to figure out how I can move currently. Nonetheless, I took a few pictures. Around the corner from my house is... more of the same. There is a small floodplain with a sort of swamp in the middle. And then back into the suburban density that is my neighborhood. The last picture was taken in a different part of town but I was walking past that too, so I figured I would include it.

    This picture came out way too dark and had to get adjusted a bunch. "vintage" LL Bean shirt (if I've had it for 20 years does that count?) Ciano Farmer

    Thanks! Hoping to keep it going. Ultimately I have a pair of Iron Hearts that I would like to start wearing; still got a while for that though. Today: basic Levi's 501 STF, shirt is a Tri-Mountain that I got from Amazon that also didn't fit when I got it.

    Thanks! Honestly it's just been sort of a mental shift. Once I figured out that I wasn't going to pass out or whatever if I missed a meal, it became easier.
