How has the lockdown benefitted you? - AllbyMyRelf
I live in northern VA where the lockdown has been pretty severe. And while it sucks not to be able to get a lot of work done, go to church, or see friends/ family, I’ve been able to read a lot more and spend a lot more time with my now 5 month old daughter ...

Tried to teach my wife on some back roads in GA. She did OK, but was too scared to get up to the speed for 5th gear and was terrified to drive near other cars. My dad taught me on the decline of a hill—supposedly that helps beginners from stalling in 1st gear...
