RE: Northeast Ohio to Yellowstone with Kids!

If you and your significant other can safely do long drives like that, go for it. My family and I have traveled plenty with long drive days to maximize time at the destination. Mind you, that was before the kids had ample entertainment to occupy their time during the ride as the do now! You know your family and their ability to do long rides. Hit the road and enjoy. The road trip is half the fun for me, always has been. Whatever you don't see this time, see it another time. Sorry I can't help on the route but i figured I'd chime in to counter those who act like it's the worst thing in the world and child abuse to take long drives.

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

How sad it must be that scientist , historians ,economists , journalists have devoted their whole lives to deceiving you . While a reality TV star with decades of fraud and exhaustively documented liar is your only beacon of trust and honesty , I thought this was a RV forum .And you, of course, can share with us at least one of the documented lies. There's no way you wrote that with a straight face.

RE: Rig for two couples?

Some responses here remind me of when I rented a 12 passenger van and they tried to give me 2 cars because they didn't have the van when I got there. Defeats the whole purpose of me renting the van! I'm guessing the couples have made up their mind and are looking for info on what trailer may best suit them. Not whether or not it's a good idea or doable. I agree with those who said look for more than 1 bathroom and go from there. Also the toy hauler which has the beds that drops down or opens up into a big one seems better than a bunk house. That class C towing a trailer seems pretty reasonable but I'm guessing they want a non RV to get around in at their destinations.

RE: YouTube camping videos

Traveling Robert is my favorite thus far. The live streams I'm not a fan of but that applies to almost any live stream. I've even got my wife to watch it with me now. The last 2 years I've used destinations and information from his channel to plan our trips and we don't even have a RV yet. I also watch Keep Your Daydream. That one has a little too much production for my wife's taste and even mine sometimes. But again, i use their destinations and experiences as a way to plan our trips. It has been cool watching their kids grow up though. And having 3 of my own, i can relate. Years ago my family and I road tripped from NY to Vegas. I remember jumping out to take a picture of my van on the strip at a red light. I said to myself, people must think I'm crazy. I probably could have had my own travel channel. Then again, I don't know if I have the personality for a successful one

RE: Where Can I Find A Bike Now?

So people are hoarding bikes now? That's laughable. Did you ever think that maybe people are just buying them now because that's all they can do! That said, check Craigslist, Facebook marketplace, offer up, for people that made impulse buys and now just want to get rid of it. Could be a practically new bike. I bought bikes for the family a couple of years ago (see my signature pic) for our vacation from a guy who bought some just for his vacation. Got 2 bikes for about $100

RE: "Service temporarily out "

What no one is acknowledging is you spend the time to type a long thought out reply and the system crashes when you hit the submit button. Sure, if you are just reading, refresh is just a small annoyance. If you hit refresh it will reload and post like normal. I've done that and it has worked. didn't result in a double post either. just don't hit the back arrow or anything else. As mentioned, copy it too so you can paste if it's a long one

RE: Money from government

My 2 college kids who both lost their jobs as a result of this got nothing. No $1200 for them and no $500 to me for them.

RE: Money from government

Local Tucson news said some payments had already been received here. I haven’t heard from anyone specifically though. Should hit people's account starting tomorrow depending on your bank. I know people who see a pending deposit, from IRS, including the amount, for 4/15 in their online banking. I got a text Saturday from my credit union about an incoming ACH credit. I usually get that 2 days before my payday (Friday) and it hits my account Thursday night. So this credit isn't my paycheck.

RE: And Texas Caves In

There goes that foolish car death argument again.

RE: And Texas Caves In

...Hopefully those suffering financially can find a way to recover and get back on their feet or just get things back in normal order (myself included). Bankruptcy hasn't stopped others from getting to the top. ;)That is the most crass statement I have read in the last 10 pages. 10 Million people lost there job in the last 2 Weeks. Let that sink in for a minute. Hope you feel that way about the people who could care less about everyone else's health and complain about the effort to curb this. My reply wasn't meant to be crass so I apologize if it came off that way. Like I said, I've been affected in this way as well. Thankfully not as much as others. There was some sarcasm for a specific situation at the end, and maybe it was in poor taste. For that I apologize as well. Bankruptcy isn't fun, can be devastating, and should be a last resort. However, it's not the end of the world, death is.

RE: And Texas Caves In

This cars/road argument...makes no sense really. Let me try to explain it again. If you ban cars, you will save 40K lives per year at the unknown cost of whatever that would do to the economy. If we ban leaving our homes, we can save an unknown number of people from Wuhan virus, at the unknown cost to the economy. They are both choices. Which lives are most important? "Explaining" it doesn't make any less ridiculous. But who am I? I'll let the professionals answer it... “First of all, I think that’s a false equivalency to compare traffic accidents with (coronavirus) — that’s totally way out,” said Fauci. “When you have something new and it’s emerging, and you really can’t predict totally the impact it’s going to have, and you take a look at what’s gone on in China and you see what’s going on right now — right now — in Italy, and what’s happening in New York City, I don’t think with any moral conscience you can say, ‘Why don’t we just let it rip and happen and let ‘x’ percent of the people die.' I don’t understand that reasoning at all.”

RE: And Texas Caves In

This cars/road argument...makes no sense really. OP, you're retired, you earned it. enjoy it from wherever you are until you can be elsewhere. All this back and forth.....I'm essential front line personnel. On my days off, I stay at home but get my recreation and essentials in accordance with the governor's order. The same goes for my wife. If YOU want to make the decisions, run for office. Thankfully some of you haven't, never will, or aren't currently in a position of power. Adjust to the reality of today like the rest of us and be thankful you don't have to expose yourself to the risk. Hopefully those suffering financially can find a way to recover and get back on their feet or just get things back in normal order (myself included). Bankruptcy hasn't stopped others from getting to the top. ;)

RE: And Texas Caves In

Sorry camping is not a foolproof or shall I say virus proof activity. Every interaction creates a chance for spread. The idea of shutting down won't eliminate the virus but it will slow the spread to a manageable level and keep the hospitals being overwhelmed. In order to go camping you need food and fuel at a minimum. At some point you need to interact to obtain those items. Worst case scenario you get a flat and require assistance or you simply fall and require assistance. Now I agree the chances of these worst case scenarios happening all minimal. But there are fire houses stationed in every town because we know unexpected injuries happen. Coach net, AAA and Good Sam's are all thriving roadside plans because there will be break downs. But none of this happens If you stay home. There's no what if gamble. Shutting down the campground forces everyone to stay home which is the objective. Social distances does not mean going to a distant, area and then isolating yourself. It's the getting there that creates the potential for spread. Now if there is spread say, from a New Yorker going camping in some Rhode Island to get away from it all. You created a big mess and a worse case scenario by potentially contaminating some small town with limited resources. None of this happens if you stay home. Unfortunately we can't trust the public to voluntarily stay home so the government has to enact measures to force them to stay home. Well said.

RE: Anyone use rv share?

Do you like bedbugs? LOL. My wife would kick me to the curb just for asking if I could rent out our 5th wheel. My biggest fear but no different from a hotel, rental car, or any public place

RE: Anyone use rv share?

Not to hijack the thread but OP, when you rented the trailer, what did you have to have vs. what was provided? This question kinda ties into your post because how do you guarantee that the renter has the required equipment to properly use your trailer? Does the owner provide the appropriate weight distributing hitch or does the renter have to bring it? Who ensures that trailer brakes and other equipment is adequate? This question is for me because I plan on renting but also for you because have you given consideration to those things.... The guy we rent from provides everything from the hitch to card games. The only thing needed is pillows and blankets. It's extremely convenient. Gotcha. Definitely sounds like a good owner and you a good renter. Hopefully we get the same and you should you choose to rent out. Good luck
