Being able to travel this summer

Being able to travel this summer

Do Y'ALL thank parks will open up so we are able to travel this spring?

We would like to spend the summer in the west but I sounds like everything is up in the air about being able to travel.

I have been traveling, along with many others, since last fall.

RVing is the definition of social distancing.

an item in today's edition of RV Travel (2/14/21) predicts a 20% increasein new RV deliveries over 2020. that should mean roughly 500,000 new RVs.

I think parks will be more open going forward, last spring/summer's closures raised the powers that be awareness of the fact that camping is a great way to social distance. Also the loss of revenue for those public campgrounds. case in point-we used to just take off and go, and rely on finding a campsite as we needed, but now in planning our sept trip found that campsites are filling fast, many campgrounds we got one of few remaining open spots. COE's now doing all reservation, no FCFS, same at many FS campgrounds, I'm also noticing that campgrounds with the 6 month or YTD rolling window reservation system filling within hours of opening. JMHO. I don't like to have to reserve, but, it is the nature of the beast right now.

Hopefully we start seeing more of a semblance of normal life by this summer. We travelled minimally last summer as the U.S. border was closed and still is. All maritime provinces were off limits, so that left us with some (not all) of our province of Quebec and Ontario, but even that was iffy at times.

I am itching for another mega trip but I doubt that'll be in 2021. Depending what plays out maybe we'll head for Alberta. I know I'm not missing muchworkwise the past 2 months.

Parks are open in NM. Even if they were closed plenty of places to camp.

The only way to get back to normalcy is for folks to get serious about getting their vaccine and continue to wear masks - properly. Cases/deaths skyrocketed during summer vacations and holidays. We just got through the big Christmas spike. We all need to help!

JMO, but until it stops being political, it will be up to the Governors. FL is wide open while CA remains mostly closed. We are making our travel plans, after our vaccinations, for areas that have not closed everything. Who knows what they will continue to do.

Most of the parks near us in pennsylvania have been open with social areas like pools closed. Hopefully we'll end up in florida at some point over the summer break. Im hoping the political side of this is over and it will just be left to die, not that i dont believe in the virus, i dont believe anyone knows what theyre doing. Everyone i know who follows guidelines religiously has had it and alot that dont have had it, seems to be a crapshoot and hopefully yhe politicians will admit this and just let it play out without ruining peoples lives anymore.

Except in a couple cases (States) parks have been open for months. I know for a fact Oregon and Washington parks (most) have been open My kids have been rving with no issues. Of course there are restrictions on "gatherings ' and Masks inside. In august/sep I went from FL to Indiana and back with no issues getting in any park.
I am planning on being on the road again this summer.

We spent the entire summer and most of the Fall in the Rockies last year - think it will be even better this year. And last year was Great.

Yellowstone to to Taos then back to Colorado and Utah - no issue at all.

This. I completely agree.

We just returned from an 8 week trip through 4 States. We stayed in six areas -Yuma, Tuscon, Sedona, Sun City, Indio, Cathredal City and a few parks on the way out of town and the way back home. All the parks or resorts we stayed at had sanitizer stations everywhere and did a great job communicating protocols. You could tell extra cleaning was done in the restrooms and showers.

The weather was great so people were outdoors having fun and getting extra natural vitamin D from the Sun. Masks were encouraged and worn indoors, but very few people wore them outdoors while being active or at the pools. Restaurant patios were open and busy in all States we visted. (Nice to See)

We never had a challenge getting a park reservation, dining out or hitting the hiking and biking trails. Things were open and active and it was fun to particiapte.

I would encourage everyone that's healthy to get out and enjoy the RV life like you always have. (Maybe with a few more sanitizer wipes)
