    So far so good. Stores in my county have been opening back up, as have restaurants for take out.

    TP is good, stored foods are good. I ate some pre packaged meals because they are coming up on their expiration date but left several to try later as a test of how well they keep.

    Put a new intake filter and a/c filter in the vehicle today, I still have a spare for each.

    The next city over is cracking down hard on ppe's. They are pulling people over for not wearing a mask, even as the lone occupant of the vehicle.

    Thats a problem because I wear glasses and they fog up with the masks.

    My state is retarded...and Im just waiting for the rolling electrical blackouts that will be even worse this year.

    No problem with any supplies here. We were stocked up before this hit. Haven't touched any of the emergency supply. We have been making normal monthly trips for most stuff and weekly trips for milk and bread. For some reason, hamburger buns are hard to come by. If I see them, I buy a pack for the freezer. The other thing we are running low on is hand wipes. We still have them, but with none in the stores, eventually we will run out. No big deal; it will just be back to normal not using them as often. Just today, I went for packaged sandwich meat. All they had was turkey, 4 types, but no chicken or ham. TP is back in stock, but we don't need any yet. We buy the quick dissolve RV type on Amazon, which still says unavailable and don't know if it will ever be restocked. Canned soups are iffy. Can't get Campbells Vegetable Beef, but can get the store brand still. Stores still have bleach, but supplies are getting limited.

    I'm sorry you have to live in California, no decent people should be subjected to that.

    I left long ago, before California got like this, my siblings are still there.

    I'm good, never had an issue with anything except maybe long delivery times for my food delivery when Wuhan Flu first hit.

    Even that settled down when they hired more delivery people.

    All good in my world.

    We really haven’t had any problems here, still can find everything we need or want. Never had any shortages of anything, maybe disinfectants and alcohol can be a little hard to find sometimes but everything else including TP is readily available.

    In the last two months I’ve reloaded over 8,000 rounds of ammo to add to my stash and continue to shoot the hell out of it.

    Today my project after the range was to consolidate and restore my first aide/Trauma kits.



    The FDE and Black bag have standard first aide stuff along with a tourniquet, quick clot and Israeli pressure bandage.
    The two small OD bags are strictly trauma bags with the above but no regular first aide stuff.

    The big red bag is a trauma/first aide bag and the small bag is a little normal first aide kit, they are for my daughter.

    Plus, without very heavy bands, very much unneeded. The morons in power decided it made a super deadly, "assault slingshot" or whatever dumb ass "logic" they used.

    If you have a Costco nearby, MrsPH snagged a 25lb bag of flour from there about a week ago.
