I saw this article a few days ago but you may have to register to see it. In case that happens I will post the abridged version. Snowbirds in Eastern Canada are shipping their vehicles to Buffalo or Detroit and flying via Helicopter or private flight. Then they drive to their winter homes in Florida. BC snowbirds could do this as well. There are companies that transport vehicles to the USA for American car dealers. I thought about doing something similar.

Hi Moisha,

There is a thread on this here:

https://forums.goodsamclub.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/30166531.cfm

Personally I do not approve of this "letter of the law" approach,
and with 4 million active cases I'm not going south this year.

Always amazes me how much effort people go to to commit suicide.

Anyone coming here from Canada at this time is being foolish IMO. The US virus rates are skyrocketing! My GP is a personal friend and he is really nervous.

99.6% survival rate. Don't believe the hysteria. If you're afraid then stay home but the rest of us should be able to lead our lives, we'll even stay in your empty camping spots.

Forget false statistics. When hospitals have zero icu beds and thereare bodies piled up in portable morgue the reality trumps your survival statistic. It is also getting worse by the day.

For some of us, avoiding death is not living.
This virus matter may well drag on for a lot longer. A year or two more would not be beyond belief. The development, distribution, and followup of any vaccine will take a lot longer than our politicians wish us to believe.
For those of us of a more advanced age, it may well be the best choice to go on about our affairs, taking practical precautions, and go on with our lives.
I see not a thing unethical about those who, following the laws, decide to fly down south and ship their vehicles. (Though if it were me, I'd just buy a beater down there.)

Actually it is 97.5% survival rate in the US, using the US stats.
