RE: FLKeys suggestions

kfp673, are you and your family doing Fort Wilderness camping for Disney activities? DH and I have reservations there in March, but are rethinking the trip because we're not sure the parks will have parades and such.

RE: Vaccinations

dturm, X2. Perfect sense.

RE: Vaccinations

Deb and Ed M, you would have better luck calling your DEHEC or Health Dept. in your true state of residence, you know, the residence where you obtained your voter's registration card, your driver's license, the state or federal income tax documents with your residence address on it along with your social security numbers. With all that true information, someone would eventually come on line and ask you to go to a particular provider's website and have you fill out your state's form and you would push the continue button; the provider would then give you a date and time to show up for your appointment; between now and time of your appointments in your state of residence, your provider would communicate with you on your smart phone or through your e-mail address. You would have plenty of time to travel via plane or vehicle to meet your appointments in your state of residence and return to warm weather in Florida. We have received our first shot; while at our Medical University, we got the appointment for our second shot and now will fly back from Arizona to SC to meet our second appointment and fly back to Arizona. You see, just because I'm on vacation, I don't want to make my problem Arizona's problem; that problem belongs to me and my state of residence, SC, the state where I vote for people who run my state. It is easy to determine what is your true state of residence; based on that true definition, the numbers for distribution of vaccine to a state are determined.

RE: Charleston SC

Ferndaleflyer, that little area for that KOA is called "Ladson" on US Highway 78. Not too far off of an I-26 interchange. Historical Charleston peninsula is about 18 miles away from that KOA.

RE: Charleston SC

X4 for James Island County Park, and I live in the Charleston area; however, bring bug spray and plenty of bottled water during the summer because it is humid and hot; the park is not far from Folly Beach, too. Historical peninsula of Charleston is a "walking" area, streets very small, find a good parking area next to the Visitors Center; free trolley will pick you up if you get tired of walking.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

My Grandfather at age 23 died in the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918. I understand that the population of the US was approximately103 million at that time, and the estimated deaths from the pandemic were 675,000. Since nothing was available to stem the waves of infection (except quarantine), can we assume what we call "herd immunity" today is what our population then had to endure?

RE: Winter Camping in Myrtle Beach

You can also order chili and corn dogs; if you left something at home, they have a small store to pick up that item; there also is a service laundry. Get grocery stores to stock up your pantry not too far from the resort. Ocean Pines has a good start towards a Disney World type experience. Good sized lots with cable and bricked up fire pit.

RE: Winter Camping in Myrtle Beach

-Carolina Pines is a wonderful fairly new resort. You are right, there are many thinks to do. However, because the resort is fairly new, the many trees which have been planted are not mature trees; therefore, the strong winds which sweep across he park are not easily broken by a grove of mature trees. Because you will be so close to the ocean and its tributaries, you will be warm (about 50F. To 60F. During the day and about 40F. To 50F. During the evenings. Don't forget to make an appointment to rent you a golf cart while there; so easy to zip around to various activities, heated swimming pool, the small bowling alley, playing corn bag in the hole, stop at the bar for your favorite cocktail, toast marsh mellows over a roaring fire, go play some putt-putt

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Monkey44, I was hoping that the CDC might disclose those possible side effects which would be recorded from the three trials. By the way, there are always some risks to these things, even flu vaccines, but if we don't take the vaccine, I think the risks are higher (just my opinion).

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

BC, the news media were confident enough to say that first responders and medical personnel are front and center as the first ones to receive the vaccine as per meetings presently going on to determine the line up for inoculation. If we all do what we need to do for others and ourselves, we can hope to dig ourselves out of this mess maybe in six months time (just my opinion). The only thing I do think about is any side effects; I wonder how much is known after the trials.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

BCSnob, in the "Wall Street Journal" it was announced that United Airlines has a large number of planes in the air (which started this past Friday and first stop Chicago) carrying the Pfizer vaccine to various regions of the US (and some in Canada) for the purpose of geographically positioning the vaccine for immediate use and distribution subsequent to the December 10 meetings of US FDA and meetings of Canadian Health Ministry. Approximate first use date is December 15. If this goes off as it should, it will be a blessed Christmas gift to the world. All countries just need to get their supply chain and distribution centers organized and in order.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

Bowti -- Just couldn't agree more; the only two networks I can turn to for world news seem to be BBC and Newsy News.

What a price on those freezers! Sidney, thanks for the info.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

JaxDad -- It's Pfizer. 90 percent effective in early trials. The key word is "early." What is unique about their program is that Pfizer did it without government money and no participation in the government program "Warp Speed." So they had the freedom to conduct their own program with no outside rules, no time limits, and no strings attached or interference. The FDA seems excited about it. It's a two-shot deal three weeks apart; however the vaccine has to be stored constantly at -103F. My goodness, what kind of refrigeration would a vaccine distributor need to accomplish that!!

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

Bucky, if the roof of your RV is sturdy or the back of your dually is roomy, there might be room in the RV parking lot near the track to do a set up with chairs and binoculars to watch the races. You would then not be wading through the crowds. And, of course, your eats and restroom would be in your RV.

RE: Traveling in Winter

RVman, When you heat with your propane furnace at the Flying J, how do you use the fan (which I think is electric) to force the heat around the fifth wheel? Do you just let the fan run off the battery during the night?

RE: Rocky Point or Puerto Penasco Mexico

qtla9111, Chris, my e-mail is [email protected] By the way, I got a response from Senator Tim Scott's office; he sees the situation at a Rocky Point the same way as I do, lack of Mexico enforcement at the border. But he wants a more definitive conclusion from the Dept. of Homeland Security.

RE: PacNorthwest to Tennessee in January?

Your daughter sounds like a wonderful young lady wanting to camp with her family. My granddaughter who is attending University of NC at Chapel Hill is not excited about doing such things with her grandparents, only when she was a very young child. She is a Sophmore this year.

RE: PacNorthwest to Tennessee in January?

Coolmom, sunfan's daughter needs to be in Tenn. for college in late January; thus, I-10 will be pretty much cleaned up from the storms by then; maybe a few small detours; afterall, I-10 is a main artery across the US. However, coolmom lives in western Washington state; going south on the west coast probably means she would need to travel over at least one high altitude mountain pass in Dec.-Jan. While towing or driving an RV. I know very little regarding that territory; just what my Canadian friends tell me on their way to Mexico.

RE: PacNorthwest to Tennessee in January?

Sunfan, I know it will take a heck of a lot longer, but we would follow the "warm zone" heading east across the continent. First head south toward southern Calif., then head east across the bottom of Texas on I-10. Once almost to the east coast, you can turn north toward Tenn. All that trip time, you can utilize the RV without winterizing. When you are about 300 miles from Tenn., check your weather forecast to determine if you need to winterize before crossing the Tenn. border.
