We were going on 2 trips this year & selling everything to go fulltime in 2 years. We wanted to have fun this last year with our travel trailer, but it is up in the air because of corona.

For those brave souls. Be safe!

Maintain the Covid protocols.

This sounded grim, but if you will not or won't, CDC gave out a new and double death rate forecast just in case.

And remember, your freedom stops when you start to invade other people's personal space -- now set at 6 feet.

Yes, you can be sued for reckless endangerment with deliberate violation and a warning as some seniors and immuno-compromised people have to go out and have no choice for their essential needs.

Looking for a way to go camping ourselves before I go mental -- even if I myself is at risk (my body is virus attractant and had the flu every year as a child though high school and will get a fever after a flu shot.)

I really hope you find places to stay along your route. Your trip will be something like that encountered by the great depression migration. Something your children will always remember.....and grand kids will think is a fable.

Called ahead, we can stay in Hyatt parking lot for $25 in chicago

Many of us who are in campgrounds will follow guidelines and do it safely. The general public will not! That has been seen by photos from various state beaches and parks especially over this past weekend as places started to open, some have closed again becaue of it. They even shut down the parking areas to try and control the crowds. I saw how people responded to the lift of the stay at home this past week. They think the threat of the virus is over and that it's gone - one person even commented they are glad it's done. Won't even practice social distancing. A campground may be safer than your own neighborhood as most other campers don't infringe on your site. Waiting for our seasonal site at a county park in MI to open, hoping to leave TX in a couple of weeks. Not worried about travel, there's always some place to park for the night.

Seen the same case in an interview with a mayor in Florida. They have to close the beach since they cited 8 thousand people violating the social. distancing protocol.

I wish we RVers are of better bred, but I've seen enough even on the most beautiful and pristine of campgrounds.

We stayed at a fairly full RV park in Williams AZ this past week. People I spoke to weren't at all worried about the virus. They all seemed to agree that the virus isn't all it was cracked up to be. Most guys I spoke to were either retired or prior military and could see through the BS. And no one was wearing a mask. Here's my drone shot of our immediate area.

Unbelieveable what some will do/say when the medical facts are there. Kinda wonder what planet they came from.

Just got back from a weekend excursion to Crooked River State Park in Georgia.

Georgia State Parks have been open the entire time.

Have another camping trip planned for mid June, and also Gulf Shores over 4th of July.

We practiced social distancing and had a great time.

Yep, as a friend of mine says, you can't fix stupid. Until you have a loved one on a vent for 12 days and in the hospital for over 3 weeks, and 2 friends on their backs for 3 weeks, then you'll know that this virus is for real. We are really just in the beginning stages of the pandemic. Everyone stay safe, and listen to the Science, not the talking heads on TV.
