With gas prices the way they are, there hasn't been a better time to take a long motorhome trip in years. What is to keep someone from doing just that, assuming you stayed with the rig and didn't venture to any businesses? Most aren't open anyway, from what I have read.

My state is close down. Just to the Doctor or food. Not suppose to be out on the street.

I was on the road in mid-March from Florida to Texas and the COE parks were beginning to close, the parks were pretty full, and it was getting hard to find a place to stay. Now the COE parks, Texas, Florida, and most other states have closed their public campgrounds. Most private campgrounds are still open, but more expensive. Some states are starting to see public protests against the lockdown and some are starting to relax the closures, but not much yet.

I picked a private RV park in central Texas and I'm saving money spending about $400 for a 30 day rental and very little on gas. I plan to go up to northern Arkansas (cooler) in about 2 weeks and look for another 30 day rental, if I can. I may hit a few parks in Texas (if they open) and Oklahoma on the way. Watch out for the stay at home Nazis. I'm hoping for a wave a lawsuits to challenge all of this nonsense and maybe they will think twice before they do it again.

Violate city, county and state stay at home orders? I can wait for the fun of camping. Not much of a sacrifice IMO. Your cabin fever is that bad? “and didn't venture to any businesses?” ?No gasoline? No grocery shopping or fast food? No water refill or dumping?

Leaving home and coming down with the virus would be a perfect storm with no way out.

I'm staying put until it's much safer to go out. Darwin has a way of weeding out those that don't think.

I wear a mask when I go out. It will do a good job of protecting others if I cough for sneeze. I do that in respect for their health and I expect them to return that respect by wearing one. I see too many thinking they're somehow immune or just don't care. I don't want to be around them because I value my health so I'll stay at home until the danger passes.

What will you do when you run low on supplies, gas or have to empty the porta potty? I go to the neighboring town for groceries or take out just to get out of the house for a bit, I do visit a friend but we stay outside and maintain our distance. IMHO, the masks do little to prevent spread of the virus but if they make the wearer feel better so be it.

With restaurants closed except for fast food, all cooking would have to be done in the RV. My thought is that as long as you're in the motorhome you are socially distant by a lot. Just stay away from other humans except to get supplies, gas, of empty the tank. As an added bonus traffic is down. Just use common sense precautions to keep from getting the virus. Or stick to back roads and enjoy the scenery. Just for a couple days would be enough! I have a sewer dump at my house, properly plumbed into the main sewer line.
I'm not planning a trip, except in my dreams. Just thinking out loud.
