As much as it is killing me to stay home in the cold we will be staying put. Things are changing quickly. It is so bad in some of the hot spots that it would be next to impossible to isolate. If you did get sick the health systems would not be able to handle the volumes of sick people.Anyone thinking of going south should wait and monitor the situation. Maybe it will improve by February.

Good. I’ll send you a postcard from my spot in Key West after Thanksgiving.

Yep. I hear ya. At our place in Palm Springs California they just went back to purple rating which is not good. All pools and Gyms being closed again in our community there. We are also looking at the Feb time frame now. Our back up plans for the Costa del Sol in Spain are off as it is not going well there either. Trying to get info on how things are going in the canaries but an island is probably not a good place to be stuck if the second wave gets out of hand.

Meh. The Chihuahua is curled up in front of the fireplace. He's adapting, I'm sure we can. Maybe need to pick up an extra case of Don Simone to get us through.

Stay home? No way. Wife and I have been travelling the country and when home I've been working our monthly RV shows and delivering motorhomes. This bug isn't going to slow us down. From what we've seen on our travels it isn't slowing anyone else down either. We went to Branson for the 4th of July and the place was packed. Thousands of people gathering for our country's birthday. Later we went to Utah and Colorado for some RZR riding and socializing and those places were packed. We just got back from the Mt Rushmore area and Sault Ste Marie, MI and those places were also packed. Had a wonderful summer travelling and working and meeting new friends. No one I know or met had or has the bug. Seems the best remedy is to carry on and live life to the fullest.

Now that your powers that be in CA have announced they will independently review for safety and approve any developed vaccine which is approved by USDA, the second wave you mention may very well get out of hand. Perhaps CA should secede from the USA and spare the rest of us the drama.

An island could be the best place to hunker down forever.

We're not changing any of our plans. We're just being careful and wear a mask when in public, keep our distance, and use hand sanitizer upon returning.
