Some casinos in Minnesota have shutdown, apparently voluntarily. Some remain open but have closed their pools and spas. Can't mess with a sovereign nation.
I'm sure by now Las Vegas and Atlantic City and some of the smaller places like Tunica and Biloxi have also closed. can you imagine how much money a Las Vegas casino is going to lose every day being closed it's mind-boggling change settings

Interesting trip to Meijer.
I was actually impressed that each shopping cart was being sprayed down before you could take it. Also, noticed shelves being sprayed down before restocking.

What did have me a little puzzled was all the red X's on the floor all around the check out area and main isle. Then I read a posted letter that the CDC was recommending people maintain 6 feet from one another.
So X really did mark the spot ;)

Las Vegas is officially shut down. Casinos, schools, librarie,etc. Everything except grocery stores and hospitals. Gas is cheap but there’s no place to go.

I wouldn't say diesel is cheap in New Hampshire. 2.59-3.09

I'd say the streets are dead from coronavirus, but I've been here before. Never seen a place that rolls up the streets like this at 11

Fortunately with the help of Google Maps and the fact that I'm heading to MA, I found a 24 hour McDonald's finally

The US/Canada border is closing for non-essential travel. Trade isn't supposed to be affected. Let us know how it goes ...

AFAIK I'm supply chain... Just crossed back into Canada, border guard said nothing about it

I could be very lucky to be on the home side if they deem these shipments non essential

WOM, you make it out of WA or are you walking around in a hazmat suit?
My delivery was to Yakima Washington which might as well be Missouri it's so rural and yes 3000 Miles straight through with 2 - 3 hour power naps and I did it in 53 hours. And I will never do this solo run again ever!!

I'm familiar with where it is. Don't ya wish your carrier was quoting avg speed of 45 mph like the rest? It matters, especially on those long runs.

Be safe! Stay outta Seattle & SF if at all possible ...

I delivered 18 hrs early, scheduled for tomorrow morning

And, no, 50mph on your average direct load works just fine.

It's amazing how far away Washington state gets. I never think Montana will ever end when I go.
My thoughts are to remove everything between I-25 & I-35 and push the coasts closer together. And, yes, Montana is beautiful but tedious at night and a 1 hour white out west of Butte didn't help.
