We are out and about for the first time since the outbreak of Covid.

There seems to be double the number of trucks on the road. Those truckers have a lot of places to shut it down for the night fuel and eat. They need more places to rest for the night or to just take a break.

Campgrounds are plentiful but reservations are best even if made just a few hours before arrival.


The price of fuel is up.

This is a beautiful country.

I had the jab no need for a mask unless your contagious. II'm a member of the old farts club but believe in science.
Traveled through and camped in 27 states many of them multiple times both before the jab and after.
Want to wear a mask, wear it. Want to pratice social distancing, pratice it.
Live your life the way you want. I'll live mine and travel while I can because there is only a limited time to do so covid or no covid.

Not disagreeing with anything but... reservations have been brutal. My favorite spot at Assateague SP in Maryland I normally would have a day or 2 to reserve when the reservation window opened a year before. Now I had seconds. Similar problems with a few other parks. [emoticon]

People are not wearing masks and are not practicing safe distances.

Truth is. People have learned. Masks really do nothing, and the vax is hit and miss. I just got out of the hospital with a sever case of covid, and yes I was fully vaxed. It did no good. Absolutely NO GOOD.

Here is how it is. If you are going to get it, you are going to get it, and there is nothing you can do about it. A person needs to do what ever they think will help them stay safe. Take the vax if you think it will help, wear a mask if you think it will help. Do what YOU "think" is best for you. But be advised. The hospitals are full of fully vaxed covid victims. I know I was one. not only did I have the vaccine, but also the infusion. Now I face MONTHS of recovery. So do what you think you need to do. But realize you still have the same chance of getting covid, as you did before you did anything.

Best thing to do. Get out, and live your life. Don't sit home and hide from something that no one has any control over. All you do is waste what time you have here. God is the only protection you really have.

We're "Most Timers" spending approx 10 Months in the RV and haven't changed our routine much even with Covid around. As already said, your time here is limited and you need to make the best of it you can.

I am 75 and still take very frequent fishing, mountain hiking and camping trips and still young at heart, fully vaccinated and taking my statins therefore I am not a member of the grumpy old farts club. Cheers to the brave.

I am 80+ and put 12,000mi on my DP during covid but have sat still for 5 months now except for a couple of 200mi trips but getting ready to roll. I wore a mask when I had to only, got shots + booster and now don't worry about it. The end of the road gets closer every day so I'll just keep on going as long as I can.

A couple of y'all missed this admonition and got deleted.

Please re-read and please don't get this thread shut down.

We just wrapped up a couple of months on the road. From the west to the midwest, then south, across the southwest & home. Found most CGs filled up with overnighters, So I was glad I had made reservations.
We didn't hit any real touristy places like amusement parks, but things did seem busy at the places we did stop, but when compared to last year, attendance has increased. To me the truck count seemed about the same as previous trips. Fuel prices were higher in the west, lowest in the south. Despite what the media (both social and other) wants you to think, this country still has a lot of good people. All in all a good trip. As soon as we can, we will be back out there.
