I really hope you find places to stay along your route. Your trip will be something like that encountered by the great depression migration. Something your children will always remember.....and grand kids will think is a fable.


Wow how depressing. At least you didn’t mention the grapes of wrath and the Kansas dust bowl. What I think they will find and see is the American spirit, people getting back to work, getting back to eating out, getting back to enjoying the great outdoors. Things will be different sure but states are opening parks, beaches, businesses, with conditions. May not be happening in California but things are looking up.

been running EB on I-40 since last Wed. started at Holbrook AZ with overnites at albuquerque and amarillo. stopping tonite in OK City. stopping now for lunch at the Flying J at Sayre OK (exit 20). most rest stops open in NM, TX and OK. truck stops open. plenty of gas. every RV park we’ve stopped ar had plenty of room (we made reservations before we left meda, az). heavy truck traffic on 40, few autos, fewer RVs. otherwise looks almost normal.

"May not be happening in California but things are looking up."

Things are looking up? Almost 70,000 Americans have died from this virus. For instance Mississippi WAS "opening up" and yesterday had their largest number of new cases. I can wait for the "fun of camping" until this virus is under control.

Mississippi - "Gov. Tate Reeves was to proceed with his plan to get people back to work, but announced the change of plans on Friday as 397 new coronavirus cases were confirmed and 20 more people died."

Agree!

Can't take the risk with our lives.

Although the itch is too strong.

We'll also wait for opening of federal, state, country and city campgrounds.

Motorhome is packed and ready to go, departing next Tuesday for a week away about 100 miles from home. DW is a nurse, her doctors say we've nothing to worry about as long as we keep our distance from anyone else. Full tank of diesel. Everything we'll need is taken from home so no need to venture out to any stores.

There are new rules at our destination; online registration/payment/site assignment, no kids, no public bathrooms/showers, no laundry, no visiting in other sites. Travel safe, travel smart.

We left Arizona a few days ago going north through Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, and WA. All rest areas were open that we saw on our route. We stayed at truck stops, and a casino parking lot(it was closed) with several other rv's spending the night. We also spent the night in a mall parking lot in WA for a couple of days visiting family. Police car waved as he drove through the parking lot. We saw quite a few cars on the road while traveling, but there were lots of RV's traveling also.

Thanks and that's very thoughtful of you.

It's what others don't realize. If they are asymptomatic super carrier, they will be infecting and endangering a lot of other people.

I'm in Georgetown, TX and my 30 days are up Wednesday. I've got reservations in Waco and Dallas at a private and city park. Then I have 8 days of reservations in Oklahoma state parks (plenty of sites were available). After that I plan to find a 30 day campground rental near Fayetteville, AR. I'm trying to escape the 90 degrees temps that are starting in central Texas now. AC is running about 8 hours straight during the days this week. After that I may head Northwest. Google says Oregon is nice in the summer. Washington is chilly. Imagine that. Sweaters in August. Not worried about the virus that ate New York. I'm not fat and I don't have other health problems after 60 years of taking good care of my body.
