I concur. . . (nice spot in the picture - looks like an ideal place to social distance)

thanks, this is a huge forest, 13,000 acres and I've wandered and camped here for 30 years, usually alone.  I wonder how many others here do the same thing.

My wife just read something about introverts and extroverts - the extros like the coast and prefer vacations near the shore, beaches.  While introverts prefer the mountains.  She is a poster child of an introvert - complete with the anxiety attacks that go along with dealing with groups. Me on the other hand, I'm anti-social, a loner who doesn't have a personality that meshes with most people.  I do everything alone and for the most part, dislike social gatherings for reasons different than hers. And while on that note, that article probably speaks for everyone in the lonerzone, introverts are a part of that club.  I definitely like the mountains and forests, and HATE the beach - not because I dislike beaches, but there isn't a beach on earth that is truly private. And the majority of them are people magnets.

Interesting about introverts and extroverts. I'm most definitely an introvert and a loner - unless I'm with my husband or child, I'm usually out and about by myself. People are irritating and I'd rather be in my own head than forced to make inane and pointless conversations with people. And I much prefer mountains and forests. Beaches suck, especially crowded beaches in the summertime - wouldn't catch me anywhere near a place like that. However, I used to live on Northern Vancouver Island and there are some incredibly beautiful beaches to discover there - and best of all, they are so remote that very few people ever go to them. They are generally only accessible by remote logging roads. That is my only exception to the beach rule. Here's a picture from one of my adventures - this was a typical West Coast day, rainy in the form of a fine mist and overcast. If you look closely, you can see a few rudimentary shelters along the beach - made with driftwood and tarps, it's a nice touch for the few souls who venture out on such days.

That is a nice picture.  Yet, as remote as this place is, people found a way to get there, they used the logging roads.  No offense to anyone here, but I have been spiraling down a tunnel this year - I've come to hate people.  I hate the entitlement attitude, the nosiness, the self-centered disrespectfulness especially.  It appears, at least to me that this attitude is a new common denominator and it's become more evident since this quarantine. People wanting attention - just to add another pet peeve - and I have become more withdrawn from society as a result.  It isn't just one demographic group either - it's everyone.  Young, old, middle age/my age group, kids.  Everyone has attitude - seniors for example, I always liked talking to them, old fashioned respect and it made me like them.  It seems like this generation of senior citizens are nasty and just as self centered as immature brats. Obviously there are good people in each group,  but just go out in public and the bad one's shine above the rest.   I could live the rest of my life in the quarantine mode.

Well, it's more of a social distancing theater thing. As long as a person is wearing a single layer cloth mask everything is just fine.
