RV storage will most likely be a problem, especially that close to NYC. Although the storage center may be open for people to access their units, there may not be anyone there to set you up. You may get lucky and they can do everything over the phone or online, but NJ has shutdown all non-essential business. I don't know if self storage is considered essential business. I know the RV dealership that we bought our last 2 RVs from in Southern NJ has closed at least until the end of March.

Yes, I live in GA, but all my family is in NJ (mostly southern NJ) and I lived in NJ most of my life.

If, this is true about jail folks for driving through a state under "stay at home orders" is true, it's another great example of govt silliness. Those same states governments are calling for releasing felons because jails and prisons are too dangerous due to the virus, so the cure is to put more people in there.

I don’t really need anything to be open when I arrive. Just the highway. I pull off the highway into the marina and it’s electronic access to get to the boat. There are no people involved. The only hitch might be if the RV storage place is no longer open.

That’s exactly what we are thinking at this point. We can store it down here in Florida and take the pickup by itself. Truck camper, so we could detach it and leave it behind. It will be a rough drive. About 20 hours. Can’t sleep at a hotel in between with all of our stuff in the back of the pick up truck or it will probably be gone in the morning.

Would it be too much attention just to leave it in the truck parked in the marina?

They've taken hundreds to jail for violating the stay at home orders. If I were you I wouldn't chance it. Bypass Delaware and any other state that will confine you for being out and about. Better yet, stay in Florida.


There is always one scumbag who wants to spread rumors and lies and upset others. I should probably use a more correct internet term: "troll".

This is just disgusting when people are panicky, upset and trying to decide what they should or can do.

Being locked up for driving on the highway is UNTRUE... FAKE NEWS..

the prisoners however - - article

another - article

AND they think the prisoners will listen to the MANDATORY self quarantine for 14 days once being released . . [emoticon]

The funny thing in that they think all who are released will be rounded back up and put back in at the end of this... [emoticon]

Well it is NOT true.

And NJ is NOT releasing felons.

They are releasing disorderly conduct low level county jail prisoners. They are only ok'ing them on an individual basis.
These are people who got sentences for drunk and disorderly conduct and those type of crimes.

From the article,
"Those in jail for probation violations and low-level crimes — fourth-degree, disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offenses — will be released Thursday." No felons. While not state wide many communities in Ohio are doing the same thing.

Yes. It’s my only vehicle. They yell at me all the time about it. They don’t like it parked there.

Our RV is our home, but we are slowly heading north to our upstate NY family cottage where we'll hunker down for awhile until things settle down. We're currently near Savannah, GA and are not concerned at all about passing through the seven states we'll traverse on our way to NY from Florida. Since we'll be calling the cottage "home" for this purpose, if asked, we'll just say we can't obey a stay home order until we get home.


This is why so many people are going to die unnecessarily in the US. We've been raised all our lives to think that our country is the exception to everything, and that we as individuals are exceptions to every rule.


[emoticon] Huh? I don't understand. They are traveling alone, evidently not mingling with people. They are going to a cottage to be alone. How much better of social distancing can you get? How are people going to die unnecessarily because they are actually staying away from others? Something to think about when you stand in line for a pack of TP with 1000 other people breathing on you.
