We finally broke out of Texas at the end of June, managed almost 3 months in Arizona (I know, crazy time of year to go there - but we got to see granddaughter who lives with her mother there for the first time in over 3 years and some cousins).

I was having to deal with state park closures, travel restrictions and such at least once a week. Even when we headed back to Texas twice we had to seek alternate RV parks, either because of closures or too full.

Going to stay in the Texas area rather than go to Florida this winter. Well, we have a granddaughter wedding in Miami on Mar 27, but have to be back in Texas a few days later for another family event. Too far to drive too long day after day for me. We will fly.

If we are not in another COVID lockdown.

We've changed some tactics, but we haven't cancelled much.

We're heading out to camp after work today.

Did a trip from Iowa to Glacier NP in Late Aug. Three weeks with stops in between. No problems. Stayed away from major cities where Corona seems to be worse.
Some CG Restrictions, but workable. Masks when needed.
Had a great trip. Next year, hopefully upstate NY and VT, NH, and Maine.

Postponed a 4 month trip to Alaska that we'd been planning for 5 years.

Enjoyed wilderness camping in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming instead.

It was pretty easy to distance from others in the RV, feel fortunate that we could do that.

We were going to go to Memphis and Nashville area this summer but due to their numbers we went to Mt. Rushmore. That was a great move. Rushmore area is a must do.

We aren't snowbirding this year. We don't want to spend a lot of money only to get locked down again which is likely to happen and if we get sick, everything is out of network so that means out of pocket health insurance. We have stayed close to home all summer too because of Covid and health insurance out of network nightmares.

Full timers and we left Tucson (our winter destination) in April when everything was shut down. Traveled all over the US from AZ to MI to Florida, across Midwest thru Kansas up to Wyoming, back down across Colorado and thru Utah and Nevada. Back in Tucson for the winter. Never had any problems and some areas of the country were more 'open' than others but we shopped and ate in lots of restaurants with no problems. Park here is open with most amenities and while everyone is taking reasonable precautions nobody appears to be too afraid of being out and active. Gotta make your own decisions of what to be afraid of and what not.

Took 7 weeks while school was out to tour the west and trying to figure out what's feasible as remote work and learning continue. Hoping for winter down south in a long term bricks rental, with short rv trips from there. Anyone have a place or suggestions, pls DM

I of the big issues I discovered was the crowds in National Parks and in all campground areas in general. Mid Summer I looked at end of the season camping. I could not get a camping reservation in the National Parks I checked. Every camping site was booked until the campgrounds closed at end of the season. I checked numerous webcams and the crowds were epic.

I have to ask, aside from actual limitations, like " I was planning on going specifically to _____ and _____ was closed."
Why are folks afraid to travel in their RV?
A. It's "your" place and only "your" germs.
B. You can cook every meal in it, just like home if you're afraid to go into a restaurant (or they're closed).
C. In general the population density where people camp is lower than average city or suburban areas.

What's the paranoia?
