6-26-2020 Closing States Hamper Travel

Need fun too.

As a full-time RVer, it is hard to plan any travel at this time of Covid 19. States are closing opportunities to come to visit and others are quarantining you for 2 weeks at a time. If most people would use common sense and respect others by giving them the distance, not throwing trash around, and respecting property this would clear up much faster and make life better for everyone – even RVers.

So we are on the road and currently in Missouri. We are trying to head North for Iowa and wait to see if Pennsylvania opens so we can go family. If it does not open, we will head back to Texas were we are guaranteed a spot to hold up again. We are isolated in the RV and if we have to go somewhere, we are cautious and have masks and other things as needed to make sure we do not get sick or make others sick. That folks, is being responsible.

With the limited travel so far, I see RV and state parks suffering because of lack of people. Most people who are out, are doing great and being responsible. Others are being totally inappropriate by leaving trash and messes where ever they land. It is said to see our country come to this state. People throwing things away so others suffer, tearing out history one piece at a time, destroying property that is not theirs, and leaving our nation looking foolish and incapable to handle our own issues. I just hope we wise up soon or we may lose it all.

I hope we can get to the end of the trip as we planned it with no issues. As with most RVers, we have enough problems with the rig itself at times. Stay safe for all you travelers. Family, hope to see you soon.

6-1-2020 Life in Quarantine in an RV

Life in quarantine in an RV is really interesting. We are really away from folks and probably are the best example for others. We got lucky as we were in an Escapees park when quarantine occurred and got stay until we could leave.

Shopping is another story. The masses that were stockpiling make it hard for RVers because we are limited on space and some type of items (like toilet paper for RV use – it is made for out septic tanks so they do not clog). We hard to watch as we shipped as we cannot store a lot but saw things running out which could be a problem. We were lucky, as we were able to find most things or did without. We even tried to help our older RVers buy getting things for them if we could. AMazon was a choice but the delivery time slowed a lot.

Surprising, the cat food was the hardest to find, If you have picky eaters, and we do, it can get interesting fast. If you order on line, they were out or it took forever to get here. And like everywhere else the price went up dramatically.

We watched gas fall with hopes we would get moving soon as it was great. Now that we can move, the prices are rising again – what gives?

So while stuck, I got my surgery done, after two delays due to closures, So after the last checkup – we re hitting the road again. Idf we have to do this again, the RV is a good place.
