It will be quite different but not because of COVID, rather in spite of it. Our daughter just moved to Spokane WA so we are going out there for a week. Staying in Coer de Lane Idaho so at least we wont be in the Seattle disaster. Not looking forward to the plane ride but hoping for a safe and relaxing time.

Haven't changed, but we weren't really doing much anyway. Same thing we do every weekend these days. Pool, food, and adult beverages. I have a feeling there may be a few more people at the pool this weekend, but our HOA spaced all the chairs out. We pretty much have assigned seating at this point.

Our extended family usually has about 30 of us getting together. Not doing that this year. And what really sux is most all of the fireworks shows have been cancelled.

Yeah, I haven't checked but I assume the fireworks in Clemson have been cancelled. Figure there will be a lot of folks having their own fireworks shows.

It will be in the 90’s up here in Michigan. That’s going to force me to spread out my yard work over several days. My daughter is flying down to Clemson on Friday, so hopefully she doesn’t bring the virus back to us.

Typically, we attend Clemsonfest on the 3rd, then my wife stays at home to watch the boston pops celebration while I drive over to my home town to go up Altamount drive to the TV towers and look down from Paris mountain at the downtown and Furman fireworks. It's quite a view.

Not really. We are going to upstate Wisconsin (wife is from WI) to stay on a lake and drink spotted cow with family. This will be our first time flying since the start of COVID. Hoping travel will go smoothly.

I love it and they make some good IPAs too. In Wisconsin Chuckie Cheese even has Spotted Cow on tap, so I always take the nieces and nephews their. I usually bring back several cases for everyone that wants a couple. Since we are flying can only bring back a limited supply.

I’ll see if I can get you a couple to try, warning they are addictive.
