I plan on joining near the start but it's probably just a short visit.

In BC, this is the weekend that we can start assembling in small groups, so we are hosting a non-virtual dinner party, albeit with only five of us.

Assembling? Non-virtual? I don't understand what these words mean.

I'll throw out a suggestion for consideration: maybe time to consider using the break-out room feature or whatever it's called if the Do is again really big at peak time? I feel like the last couple of weeks there have been a number of people who haven't had much of a chance to talk and hope they haven't been feeling left out. If so, maybe the group would increase its collective enjoyment by breaking down in to a couple of groups of 7-10 for a while?

Doesn't matter much to me either way, but thought I'd put it out there for discussion.
I'm always happy to do that. Someone just needs to think of it in the moment.

So what you're saying is that in 7-14 days, the BC case numbers are going to spike?

That certainly is a concern.

As I mentioned to canadiancow the other day, I will (for the first time so far) not be in attendance for the Do this Saturday. My dad and I are going on an overnight canoe trip down a river on the Avalon Peninsula.

Don't have too much fun without me! I'll be back on next Saturday.

Sounds like fun. Paddle hard.

I promise we won't talk about you.

And at 2130, you're not going to be somewhere with cell service?

Well...

At 21:30 I will be somewhere in the middle of this large area, so I have a feeling my chances of getting cell service are pretty "remote."

Looks truly remote.

But I must say that Conception Harbour sounds like a risky place to go without appropriate protection.

An article exists somewhere with a list of all the colourful town names in NL, but I couldn't find it. I will post it here if I locate it eventually!

Saw some on Google, but they only had a couple and they weren't the really good ones.

This is quite off-topic y'all. There is a better thread to discuss codfather's adventures into a Muddy Hole.
