Yeah, our plans changed. We typically spend winter overseas. Usually Europe and SE Asia with work stops in the middle east mixed in. While we would have no issues going, the flights are largely shut down and work isn't going to pay for me to sit in a hotel quarantining for two weeks every other month, so...

We loaded up near the end of September and headed west. Other than some nasty winds across southern Wyoming, it's been great. Cool comfortable weather for the most part. Light crowds.

Today we are hitting our 7th National park of the trip (in addition to several National Monuments, state parks and other cool places). The nice thing being so late in the season is crowds are down (Zion was busy but the shuttle driver said it's way down from a month or two ago).

We were in Sequoia yesterday and many of the popular stops, there was only 1 or 2 cars and the roads largely empty. Today it's off to Yosemite...snow is the biggest concern given the weather forecast.

PS: One ironic thing...With one exception, the NP visitor centers are shut down in the name of the Rona. Yet oddly, every single park gift shop is operational. Apparently, the Rona fears RV'ers bearing gifts.

Actually due to the China Virus limitations on youth sports, we’ve had MORE time to go camping, with the kids and still have made a few hockey tournaments for the younger boy in ID, AZ and MN.
Which is nice since our state is socialist and has killed youth sports largely.


Well another political based statement allowed to stand by mods.



I’m not sure ‘allowed to stay’ is the correct term. The report function is inop.


Yes, reporting does not work. OTOH I bet the mods would find any post that that showed most of the world has done a much better job controlling Covid 19 than the country where the leader has been recorded say he knows a lot of people will die but he has and will downplay it.
And calling government efforts to protect population "socialism" is silly if you understand socialism is a economic system, not a form of government.
Democracy is enshrined in the Constitution, capitalisms is not.

We have made several trips of 1 or 2 weeks. Someone above mentioned Smokey Mountains being crowded but I never saw that. We stayed a week in Pigeon Forge, a week in Hendersonville, and a week in Linville and never saw much of a crowd anywhere except on a Sat in the Chimney Rock, Lake Lure area. Took another trip up through WV, PA, MD, and VA (2 weeks 1000mi and 4 campgrounds) and although it was leaf peeping time saw very few crowds. Also spent a week in Annapolis. Heading to West Palm Beach in Dec. We are 75 and 79 so we just try to stay safe and keep on rolling. Safe travels everyone.
