RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

Bowti -- Just couldn't agree more; the only two networks I can turn to for world news seem to be BBC and Newsy News.

What a price on those freezers! Sidney, thanks for the info.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

JaxDad -- It's Pfizer. 90 percent effective in early trials. The key word is "early." What is unique about their program is that Pfizer did it without government money and no participation in the government program "Warp Speed." So they had the freedom to conduct their own program with no outside rules, no time limits, and no strings attached or interference. The FDA seems excited about it. It's a two-shot deal three weeks apart; however the vaccine has to be stored constantly at -103F. My goodness, what kind of refrigeration would a vaccine distributor need to accomplish that!!

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

Bucky, if the roof of your RV is sturdy or the back of your dually is roomy, there might be room in the RV parking lot near the track to do a set up with chairs and binoculars to watch the races. You would then not be wading through the crowds. And, of course, your eats and restroom would be in your RV.

RE: Traveling in Winter

RVman, When you heat with your propane furnace at the Flying J, how do you use the fan (which I think is electric) to force the heat around the fifth wheel? Do you just let the fan run off the battery during the night?

RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

qtla9111, Chris, my e-mail is [email protected] By the way, I got a response from Senator Tim Scott's office; he sees the situation at a Rocky Point the same way as I do, lack of Mexico enforcement at the border. But he wants a more definitive conclusion from the Dept. of Homeland Security.

RE: PacNorthwest to Tennessee in January?

Your daughter sounds like a wonderful young lady wanting to camp with her family. My granddaughter who is attending University of NC at Chapel Hill is not excited about doing such things with her grandparents, only when she was a very young child. She is a Sophmore this year.

RE: PacNorthwest to Tennessee in January?

Coolmom, sunfan's daughter needs to be in Tenn. for college in late January; thus, I-10 will be pretty much cleaned up from the storms by then; maybe a few small detours; afterall, I-10 is a main artery across the US. However, coolmom lives in western Washington state; going south on the west coast probably means she would need to travel over at least one high altitude mountain pass in Dec.-Jan. While towing or driving an RV. I know very little regarding that territory; just what my Canadian friends tell me on their way to Mexico.

RE: PacNorthwest to Tennessee in January?

Sunfan, I know it will take a heck of a lot longer, but we would follow the "warm zone" heading east across the continent. First head south toward southern Calif., then head east across the bottom of Texas on I-10. Once almost to the east coast, you can turn north toward Tenn. All that trip time, you can utilize the RV without winterizing. When you are about 300 miles from Tenn., check your weather forecast to determine if you need to winterize before crossing the Tenn. border.

RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

Chris, I also see that last amendment extending the March 21, 2020 original border agreement between Mexico, US, and Canada to October 21, 2020. But I see no other amendments (re: land borders) to the foreign relations agreement among the three countries. Do you think Mexico has broken the agreement? Or has Mexico just chosen to not enforce the land border agreement? I've referred the "morning-breakout" article listed above to my US senator, and he indicated that he will check into the situation or determine if there has been an additional amendment regarding land borders.

RE: Border closings

Tequila, Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! There is no doubt that most ambitious plastic surgeons would love to get hold of that vaccine for their businesses!! My, my what you can do with photoshop; Russia's Putin I think would love it, unless he's insecure about his manhood, but I think that insecurity is only there when Hillary visits Russia. Don't worry, there are two candidates on the horizon for Covid, and you and I are second in line because of our age; first are all the health care workers, nurses, and doctors. However, it looks like a two-shot deal.

RE: Border closings

Tequila, I'll tell you where I'm going with this after I ask you a few questions. Have you ever performed in stage theatre in high school or college? Do you have a place of residence in Mexico that you own or rent? Do you pay any utility bills at that residence, and the bills have your name on them? If I am not mistaken, aren't you someone who works in Mexico leading caravans, and it is an income stream for you? If you can answer yes to these questions, then I would pay a visit to your nearest US Consulate with your Mexico Resident Card, copies of your utility bills at your Mexico place of residence, any work stubs or paperwork showing you have a contract/job in Mexico which requires your presence, and with a very serious demeanor, inform the consulate that you need to cross the border as an "essential" traveler to make your way home to your job. If you can pull that off, I'll personally call the Screen Actors Guild in Hollywood, and they will have an "Oscar" waiting for you. US Border Patrol will never override a directive from the Consulate. All the Consulate can do is say no.

RE: Border closings

It seems that citizens with dual citizenship, US and Canadian, certainly are in the "cat bird seat" for non-essential travel across land borders.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Just heard that United Airlines will be giving "rapid tests" to it's customers as they board United's planes; it is understood that these tests have a 15 minute turn around time for results. I wonder how reliable they are. In addition, United has nice cross continental trips from Atlanta to Hawaii (non-stop), and Hawaii has agreed to use those tests as evidence that a passenger is Covid-free when the passenger lands in Honolulu, thus, the passenger will not be required to go through 14-day quarantine.

RE: alaska 2021 ???

Orion, Thanks for the info; yes, I'll PM you if I need further information; just need to read about it first; yes, Canada's form of government is so interesting. SideHill, thanks for your information and funny too!!

RE: alaska 2021 ???

Orion, very interesting! I've always been a little curious about Canadian politics. Is this just a provincial early election or an early national election? Does the winner take office immediatlely after the election or does the current office holder complete his or her term?

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Moderators, Thank you two so much for encouraging "sourcing." -------------- You are welcome! If there was ever a time we need as current and reliable information/data possible it is now. Our health is at stake and hearsay, rumors, and unreliable information can be deadly. We are thankful most members try to vette their information. The 'tricky' part is what was believed a few days ago may no longer be true due to new information being revealed every few days; so sourcing needs to be as recent as possible.

BCSnob, thank you so much for taking your time to do this; it is much appreciated. You are your brother's keeper, but in this case, your "sister's" keeper. Ha!

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

BCSnob -- You are good (really, no kidding) at sourcing information; so (if you are not too busy) I would ask you if you didn't mind trying to source the following quoted conclusion written by an RV.net member. The inference was as a scientific conclusion. If it becomes too time consuming, don't worry about it; I'll have my physician, Dr. David Leventhal, check it out (he likes doing these things) when I go for my regular check up on Friday. Here it is as follows: "Within fractions of a percent, you are just as likely to become infected in Michigan or Vermont as you are in Florida or Arizona or California. There is scant evidence that locking yourself in your home with minimal contact with the outside world is significantly safer than engaging in activities while taking reasonable precautions. I am not aware of any studies that have shown Essential Retail employees (grocery store, hardware store, Walmart, etc.) or truckers, or delivery drivers or many other people who have daily, yet limited in duration, contact with the public suffer infection rates higher than the general population. . . . ."
