NY Gov Cuomo was just on the news saying, of the recent covid hospitalizations in his state, 66% of the patients came from home while 18% came from nursing homes. My math says that works out to 84% of patients have been in "lock down". Seems to me that staying home, as everyone is telling us to do, is the leading cause of contracting the covid virus. Maybe the CDC doesn't know every thing.

If you don't want to go outside then don't. But don't get on me and others for our decision to go camping and venture outside, to live our lives. It's still a free country despite what some want us to believe.

Maybe, but states and cities have the superior right to protect the lives and health of their citizens.

And the citizens have the rights to protect themselves from you. -- specially if you are violating their state and city's regulations meant to protect them.

If one leaves the city, and heads out camping, while maintaining social distancing requirements, are you helping your fellow city citizens?

Seems to me answer is yes

Yep. Travelled twice. Took the RV to the dealer for a free systems inspection and state inspection, then drove her home. Then we took her back for a failing bearing and a recall fix.

That's about as exciting as RV travel has gotten lately...

How many naysayers are willing to lose their loved ones? It probably not you that will get it, but someone close to you. For some, that is what it will take to understand. They can't even read history and understand. Their minds can't wrap around it as they have never been inconvenienced in their lives. It very sad.

We did a trip last week from Minnesota to Indiana to make the purchase of our new-to-us Tiffin Allegro Open Road. Stayed at KOA's in Illinois and Indiana with no problem since we were from out of state. No concerns or issues--so nice to have light traffic in Chicago! I am a 25 year Law Enforcement veteran and none of us at my 138+ sworn member agency are wearing masks while on duty. Just using common sense and practicing good hygiene like we all probably should during the flu season every year.

While I truly appreciate your service, if you decided to approach me you would be hard-pressed to get me to interact. I would not appreciate your lack of care for my well-being.
