The moho allows us to be pretty isolated
I imagine most RV parks would rather I check in over the phone with a credit
card anyway .
The Walmarts around here you can go on line order groceries and they will
put them in your car . I think most grocery stores do that now .
With a TDS card I can pay at the pump with a whopping truckers discount
The thing I would be concerned about is getting stuck somewhere by a travel ban
However I've got way to much to do here to go anywhere right now .

Is it this the time to trip low traffic, low fuel costs, no virus. [emoticon]


It would not be recommended to travel among others if from a state with high coronavirus contamination such as WA, CA, NY, et. al. areas; regardless the low prices to travel. We already have a patient in out area that travel from WA where they contacted the virus. The purpose of limiting travel, gatherings and social distancing is to stop the spread of the virus until there is someway to medically treat it.

Our area is closed to all outsiders except property owners and necessary employees and insiders are limited in travel also.

Those who would risk spreading a serious and deadly virus among the population for the love of pleasure and travel need to rethink their priorities.


WHEN we don't already have it how would we catch it while are traveling in the coach. truck stop re-fuel is a very limited exposure


I just read an article that all the coronavirus cases in our state, so far, have been associated with travel. I wonder if others thought the same as you. Perhaps they were the carriers and did not know it.

All the CEO parks in Florida are closed now. I had reservations for April 18th for Ortona South and I just received an email they would be closed through April 30th.

Wonderful. And the government probably won't give me a dime of all the free money they are passing out. Plus, if there is a COE campground open they won't give me the senior discount because they won't sell me the senior pass during this crisis. No help for those who need it most; the seniors who can't get hired any more.

Keep in mind that we are ALL being asked to stay isolated if possible and to maintain social distancing. The ALL includes government employees that work at the various offices, parks, and recreation areas. Altho this may be a major inconvenience for some of us it may be the best way to limit this whole pandemic to a few weeks instead of many months. Don't be too critical of the lack of private and government services available since the people that work at those places also have families that they care about. If you can be self sufficient and isolated, great.

^^^^ Best post so far. And yes I am a physician seeing cases of Covid in our city. Considering most on this forum are "older", you take your chances boondocking in the middle of nowhere. 24h from "cold symptoms" to being on a respirator.

Boondocking is one of the safest places to be. Stay away from people. Today we did drive-up pharmacy, drive-up coffee, drive-up groceries. I used gloves when I pumped fuel in the truck. At the rate we are going the beds will be filled up. There may not be a respirator for you. Safer out in the wilds.

As you imply, dying isn't the issue because you will be gone. It's the living with breathing issues I'm trying to avoid if I catch this thing. I don't want to spend what time I have left paying for my own or someone else's carelessness when I can take precautions. But that's just me so I take precautions to look out for my own well-being when I figure others are not.

Rule #1....People die.
Rule #2....Doctors can't change rule #1.
Am I doing what I can to keep from getting sick? You bet ya!
Am I really going to stay in my house and avoid all outside human contact? Nope.
I am still hopeful the company will release be from my current job so I can get to Stone Mountain campground and enjoy a week or so of peaceful relaxation.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?
