Yes and no. I'm far from an alarmist but it seems there can be "community transmission" i.e, the virus can spread to those who have not traveled, etc. I do plan on continuing outdoor activities (with discretion and caution) AND keeping my sense of humor intact!


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

In 2018 33,654 people died in car accidents in the US. We should not drive. Ridiculous you say? But what if YOUR family were one of the dead?

Take precautions, abide by the rules, live your life.

I'm more concerned about a lifetime of lung damage than worried about the odds of dying from this.

Come on people. You are supposed to stay home to prevent the spread of this killer virus. Sure transporting it from state to state is a good idea.


It's OK - I'm currently in FL, watching the crammed beaches/parks; and previously open bars/pubs/cafes teeming with Spring Breakers. Those kids are NOT being tested, so expect them to bring LOTS of germs home with them, if they ever leave.....

PS: the Corona Virus counts in FL have appeared to be "low" - but the truth is that testing for Brevard County, for one, only began 2 days ago.

^^^ This. Unfortunately, I think the precautions urged / required by the CDC have not been adequately evaluated against the impact they will cause: Once the CDC says to minimize contact, any company is likely to immediately take huge steps to do so in order to avoid lawsuits...with a spiraling effect that eventually shuts the country down. And what harm to "the people" will ultimately be tolled up due to a multi-trillion loss of GDP and economic downturn that will take generations to recover from? Will our kids and grandkids suffer because there is no generational wealth passed on, because there are fewer $$ (either public or private) to fund charities, because the economy doesn't generate the tax revenue is should?
...and while it's pretty easy to say "Lives matter more than dollars", does that hold true if actions that potentially save lives (maybe or maybe not and maybe those lives would or would not have been lost anyway) end up costing the entire country or an entire generation an order of magnitude lower standard of living?

It was a very close aunt and uncle in 1977. It was an awful thing but we got through it.
Cold as it may seem, nobody in the family quit driving.
