Mountain Mama: How to Get Back on River Time

first_imgDear Mountain Mama,The government shut downs cost my friend a month-long rafting trip down the Grand Canyon. I can barely mention anything west of the Mississippi without him looking a bit teary-eyed. He worked hard all summer to save money and looked forward experiencing a new river with new friends.Any ideas on how to cheer him up?Yours,Caring Friend————————————————————————–Dear Caring Friend,Quick, get that man on the river. It sounds like your friend got trapped in to-do lists for too long, a world where external measures of success like paychecks, promotions, first descents, and PRs can define who we are.Spending time on the river reminds us that we are greater than the sum of our accomplishments. We are creatures of nature, and the river brings us back into the flow of the outdoors. The simplicity of the routine of morning chores, day-long paddles, and communal meal preparation help us become present in the day unfolding in front of us.Settling into river time means allowing ourselves to drift with the current. When we sit by the side of the river and simply marvel at the light dancing from one wave to the next, we allow our minds to slow down. Giving ourselves permission to do nothing at all stirs our imaginations. The irony is that we live in a world that values an eternally jam-packed calendar, but truly unwinding can we expand ourselves in new directions.Caring Friend, you don’t have to take your friend to an exotic river to experience the magic of the water. Just get him wet. We’re lucky to live in a place where spending the night riverside is accessible.Two local options to check out are the Chattooga River’s 19-mile long water trail and the French Broad River Paddle Trail. Camping is allowed anywhere along the Chattooga River as long as campsites are 50 feet from any streams or trails and at least a quarter-mile from any road. The are several designated campsites with fire rings located riverside. The paddle-in campsites along the French Broad River can be reserved online, the campsites clearly marked with signs along the paddle trail.Caring Friend, plan an overnight river trip. Get you and your friend off the digital treadmill and back to nature.Paddle On,Mountain Mamalast_img read more

Serie A sets June 14 deadline in Govt clash

first_imgSerie A clubs have set June 14 as the last possible date to resume games if the season is to be finished, as they battle the Government to get training started earlier than May 18. Italy Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced in a press conference on Sunday evening that the country would move into Phase Two of the coronavirus pandemic response from May 4. However, while individual sports like swimming and tennis will be allowed to resume training from that date, team sports have to wait until May 18. The majority of Serie A clubs – except for Brescia – are eager to get going before then and see it as nonsensical, because the rules state from May 4 that players could, for example, go running in a local park keeping a two-meter distance, but not do the exact same thing inside a training ground. To make matters even more confusing, just hours after PM Conte’s statement, Minister for Sport Vincenzo Spadafora contradicted it, insisting the May 18 date for training was not set in stone. Spadafora expanded on that yesterday by suggesting there’s no guarantee the Serie A season will resume at all. “We’ve been working to resume training from May 18, but that doesn’t mean the leagues will start up again.” Now the Lega Serie A has hit back and sources told news agency ANSA that if the games do not resume by June 14, then the season will be called off. Loading… As it takes three to four weeks of training to be ready again after such a long lay-off, May 18 is, therefore, the latest date to start training. read also:Spadafora: ‘Not certain Serie A will resume’ The Lega Serie A could even threaten to sue the Government for financial damages if the lockdown orders force their season to end early and are furious that the latest decree was not what they were expecting or lead to believe was coming. The clubs are fighting to be given the opportunity to train in sports centres while keeping social distancing measures, just as those who take part in individual sports can, from May 4. They argue that the Serie A clubs with the facilities to perform daily swab and blood tests and keep their players in a training retreat isolated from possible contamination should have a very low risk of infection from COVID-19. The Government’s scientific committee considered the medical protocol put forward by the FIGC to be “insufficient” and it will have to be modified, the details of which will be discussed over the next few days. There is another element to be considered, as once the blood tests are performed, we could see that far more have developed antibodies than previously expected and would, therefore, be immune. This is a matter of contention, as the World Health Organisation warned this week that antibodies do not necessarily mean immunity – or rather, it is far too early to know for sure how long that immunity lasts because this virus is so new.
