Covid 19 is still a factor in RV trip planning

While many of us were hoping there would be some easing of the nasty virus and are planning RV trips, caution should be advised.

We are full time RVers and are curtailing travel for now. Social distancing, mask, hand washing and sanitizer. We do not eat out and will occasionally get curbside take out.

Sadly, all too many people are all about personal satisfaction and nothing about health safety of themselves and others.

We are full timing and currently hunkered down in the Hill Country of Tx. We have been here for 3 months and plan on hitting the road again mid July (fingers crossed). We are self isolating, wearing masks when out and social distancing. Too bad I cannot say the same of others that we run into in the grocery store. We are so missing exploring the local towns and such, but do not feel safe doing so just yet. WE are sooooooo looking forward to eating a meal out in a nice restaurant.

We are in Florida for a week or so. There are as many folks here not wearing mask as do adhere. The shopping carts are not being fully sanitized in some of the stores. We just wore gloves, need them or not, better safe is our thought. They are stopping folks on the way in to ask what state they came in from. If you are from New Jersey, New York, Connecticut or Alabama you need to fill out heath papers and self quarantine. Must be some kind of joke, the restaurants, home depot and walmart are packed. Except for the cattle shoot you would think things were normal. We are headed to Pa [Mod Edit]. Should be a hoot.

I think when things opened up that most people thought the virus was over. We've seen some pretty dumb folks out there.

We have traveled to Wisconsin where we will spend a couple of months. We eat in most meals and always wear mask AND gloves when out shopping or buying fuel. It is discouraging to see so few people wearing mask and have seen no one else wearing gloves except employees of many of the places we shop.

Just this week Arizona is back to requiring; not suggesting of wearing masks because of the rise in cases and deaths. There are over 20 states now showing rises. Michigan was admonished for the strict rules but it paid off. They are way down.
Even New York is way down because of stay-at-home requirements. Now folks are getting more relaxed about it and it's not good. No, it's not over.

We are finishing our plans for my birthday trip to the Texas Hill Country in Aug.
I will be 71.

We (DW and I) are in good health and will enjoy our trip. We practice good hygiene and safty precautions. As always we look around and are very aware of what goes on around us when we travel.

I have used gloves when I fill the gas tank for a long time. Before this.
When we get to our destination park we are cordial with others but have never been touchy feely, huggee. No need for gloves or masks. We keep our house "RV" clean and do not expect to catch the virous from within.

We will go about our lives as usual, We will not hide in fear and will not blame others for not doing as we do.
Happy Trails Amigos
Keep on Truckin'

Covid travel

We just traveled from Florida to Ohio. We felt about as safe as we would be if we stayed in one place. Just campground registrations added to our going out. The KOA we stopped at in VA was strict with regulations about masks, social distancing, and did temperature checks at check in. Will stay at KOAs when we can.

We are full time rvers and had sheltered in place for 3 months. We didnt think it looked like there would be a better time to change location in the foreseeable future and decided it was time to come north.

Happy whatever you are doing, and stay healthy,

We’ve got a 3 month cross country trip planned starting after Labor Day (national parks, Museums, Washington DC, etc.) - one we planned with the attitude that we’ll be careful but time marches on and who knows what the future may bring.
That said, with these outbreaks and restrictions we’re keeping an eye on things to see if enough of the sights we want to see will be open and not so restricted that we can’t get in or can’t fully enjoy them.
If not we will reassess our plan.

Poor DH, he is back to we should cancel our trip to ND & SD and go out for longer trips in about a year. We are inveterate museum goers and just not the type to sit and fish, mountain biking, or other outdoor activities more than a 2 mile bike ride or a 1 mile hike in relatively flat terrain. When we go to Mt. Rushmore we want to visit the museums about its construction. We've not visited any of the Reservations and would like to include some during our trip. We really enjoy checking out local restaurants and shops. All of that would be difficult or impossible this summer.

Right now I have obligations that even without Covid would prohibit us from trips longer than two months. In two years, at most, I will no longer have the obligations and we plan to hit the road for six months or more at a time.

Our plan is to wait and see and possibly hit several of our State Parks away from the coast.
Big enough, DH, me and the greys!
