This did not disappoint and thank you all for the wisdom, added knowledge and common sensical advices.

I seem over worried and cautious, but what I failed to mention I am someone who is genetically, as my other siblings, to virus contagion. And the effects on us is a lot worst. Common flu would send us into convulsions and deliriums. Hence these absolute precautions.

My brother had Covid and he said, as @ScottG, the worst thing he ever had, the feeling of drowning while catching his breath and a sickness that nearly caused his life -- and the damage still manifest 2 months into his recovery.

The other side of the story is that he got it from his in-laws, who because of their political affiliations, are defiant, reckless and disrespectful of Covid health protocols. And that inspite of seeing their own family members, two of them, died of Covid.

And yes, I've been to places where I thought the state had issued a mandate, and yet, the cities and districts choose to ignore them -- which I later confirmed through back-checking to have highest incidence of Covid cases and deaths.

I hope, nay pray, that everyone take the precautions and stay safe -- hopefully, with the accelerated vacations, we'll get the national mass or herd immunity.

We are monitoring the situation and as you all have suspected, itching to go farther and longer.

While in NOLA just after Christmas, the city had a "mask mandate" when IN PUBLIC and 95% of people complied with it. Most all of the stores in the city were requiring masks if you came in. I saw several people be turned away from entering restaurants and stores because they refused the wear a mask. It was also that way in Galveston at the pier. We went to a restaurant there and they had tables spread out pretty well and servers were masked.

I think you make it as safe as you want it to be. Ware your mask and wash up after being around people. Thats hand sanitizer and wipes. Easy to get or make. You dont need to be close to anyone while traveling. If someone isnt following masks and such, dont go near them. Its not hard to isolate if you want to, even in an camper. And get the vaccine as soon as you can, it doesn't mean you can't catch covid , but that the symptoms will be milder. Good luck. We have been camping through this whole thing, and even visited hersey park. We didnt get sick , but we also played it smart.

If the OP is paranoid (possibly with good reason), partying on Bourbon Street doesn't make a lot of sense. Masks or no masks.

Taking a walk by himself in the woods and then showering in his RV shower...no significant risk.

Seems to be not too long wait anymore with government announcing May target for vaccine availability for everyone.

Just not sure if we can still hold off the itch. It's just good that we are still busy with honey do's and improvements on the new home.[emoticon]

I'll start by addressing "immunity". I'm really not sure immunity from this virus can be accomplished. Many people have contracted it numerous times. Maybe, over time, we can build anti-bodies to ward it off, but, for the time being..... The vaccine is only to reduce the effects of the virus. It does not contain the virus itself. Lastly, i, like millions of others, want my back to normal. I have received both doses of the Phizer vaccine. I am now willing to venture beyond my doorstep.


Same here. We had our immunizations. However, a friend of the family who lives in another state is on his second bout of COVID. He and his wife had it about 6 months ago. They had their immunizations and about 2 weeks after the second shot went camping and dined in a restaurant or two. He came down with it, and she is showing symptoms. He is having a some of those "male" problems still from the first episode and is worse now from what his son tells us.
I was all set to resume my normal life (depending on what you might perceive as normal), but I am going to remain cautious.

Last year, we travelled in state. I doubt if we could have travelled in our camper through Canada. We found the campgrounds crowded, people not social distancing or wearing masks. I think it was worse than during full tourist season in other years.

We intend to travel the state again, doing another area of Alaska. We will still social distance and probably cook our own food, wear masks, and thank goodness we don't have to use public restrooms. Being older, and my DH with disabilities we don't feel we can do otherwise until there is a little more safety in public places.

Alaska is apparently open to tourism this year. I hope that people realize that if they do become ill while they are here that our resources for care is limited. This may also be the case in other areas where you might travel. Check on the hospital status, the number of cases, and decide where it is safest to travel. Hopefully the summer will see a fall in the caseloads and we can all breathe easier and enjoy some beautiful scenery and friendly company.

I read your messages earlier tonight, and as I was checking out some of my other interests I came across this video. I have been following this COVID series since it started and found it very helpful and informative. I hope it can answer some questions for you.
Some information for traveling during COVID.

Thanks for sharing! This is indeed informative.

And yeah, we've been reading and observing developments in this regards.

Aside from wanting to resume RVing, e have unused travel packages for tours abroad.

Another wonderfull development appears that the new administration is now hitting 2 million mark of vaccinations a day doubling their initial target of 1 million aa day and resetting to an earlier date the so-called critical mass of 72% to 80% target for herd immunity.

Although some states also appears to be sabotaging it heartlessly and recklessly exposing their own constituents to death and suffering. That makes route planning a lot more challenging.

Heartlessly and Recklessly? LOL.

Are you of the belief that bureaucracy at the state level is more inept than bureaucracy at the federal level? How about Dr Fauci? What a buffoon. Masks were not suggested, then they were but you were OK tying a dish rag across your face, then 2 were suggested, is it now 3 or 4? Can this guy move a goalpost or what?

16 states and counting have decided the cure has been worse than the disease economically, educationally, psychologically, the list goes on. So perhaps not visit them.

Of course you'll always have a never ending supply of sheeple such as the ones wearing a mask while driving alone, who think a cloud of virus will spew from the defroster vent or blow in with a cold front.

We're all gonna die!
