If you're scared lock yourself down and stay home. Simple.

The chance of you coming down with Covid19 and dying is lower than the chances of being killed in a vehicle accident on the way to an RV park.

One buddy, a good American US navy veteran, died last weekend and a classmate will probably be gone by Monday. Both from Covid-19. Far more than I lost in car accidents during the same period. Plenty of denials to go around and start their own Rose Garden event. I choose to practice reasonable precautions and good hygiene to protect myself and others. Some don't.

Wife and I just got back from 3 weeks on the road. From Tucson we spent time in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Sault Ste. Marie, and southern Michigan. We mingled with many folks in RV parks and sightseeing. We didn't meet very many people worried about Covid. We've made other trips in the past few months to escape our locked down home town. We're living our lives as we always have and refuse to drink the Kool-Aid of the sky is falling crowd. Covid, according to the CDC, is responsible for only 6% of the total US deaths by itself. The other 94% were mostly elderly people with other severe illnesses before catching Covid. The survival rate for people that do get it is over 99%. The media is doing it's best to keep us scared and I'm not buying it. If you're afraid of Covid then by all means stay home and free up camping spots for the rest of us.

We've been locked since last March. I am one of those with copd and diabetes that and the fact that this country has no plan make me stay here in Michigan this winter and pray for a vaccine by August. You can joke all you want but if someone you know gets and lives their troubles are not o0ver when they are pronounce free of the virus. Your lungs and heart are under far more stress. So tell me just how good my chances are on not getting it but I and many others will skip the southern scene this winter and use caution and science to pronounce our country mended.

I see you have bought in to a certain mantra hook line and sinker.

Personally we were never locked down, never missed one single day of work, and pretty much have been living life business as usual except for situations where draconian edicts forced on us by overbearing government have dictated otherwise. But its great you have the right and ability to lock yourself down for as long as you care to.

South Texas is a great place to Winter.

Considering I now have 2 dead friends from it, I think I had better avoid driving to an RV Park. The worst thing is getting it, survviing and ending up with possible lifetime consequences.

Yes, but a seat belt does not rule my life just the same as a virus is not going to. If anyone thinks some miracle vaccine will eradicate Covid 19 they're sadly mistaken just the same as the common cold or run of the mill influenza. Its here to stay.

Lockdown and hide the rest of your life if you care to,it's your choice. But then again maybe you will not have a choice, as some have already stated they are prepared to lock down the entire country if they deem it required. If that happens you can kiss this RVing goodbye. Your main concern will be getting your next loaf of bread or bowl of soup.
