It's not the mask but the length of time. and not being able to take it off. I am weirdly claustrophobic and subject to panic attacks if I feel I can't breathe or can't escape. When the pandemic first broke I could barely get through the grocery shopping without panicking. Now it's not a big deal but I never have one on for more than 30 minutes or so.


Hi Crowe,

May I suggest practising with a mask and increasing the time by five minutes per day? Also look into "tapping" it can help with terror (at least for me).


I've tried the tapping technique-it does not work. Practicing might help-it's just the psychological part I need to get over.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

The whole pandemic thing is hurting the world, not just Alaska. Regardless of the pro's and con's of the Canadian border being closed (that's entirely Canada's decision), some thoughts about flying in to AK in 2021:

- Many of the more prominent (meaning "Cruise Ship Affiliated") tourist entities in AK are allegedly going to remain shut down this summer....might check into any activities and make sure they'll be open....Particularly lodging and other activities in and around Denali / Glitter Gulch, but not unknown in other areas as well.
- I think it's likely changed but many of the tourist activities that were operating last summer (and may be open this summer) had certain restrictions (for example, 6-pack boats only allowed family members) that would be worth investigating before committing to an excursion.
- Much of the State mandated requirements for quarantine, etc. have been lifted and many local governments have changed their mandates to suggestions ("shall" v. "should") but it would be worth the time (IMO) to check the City of Fairbanks and Northstar Borough and ???? for any local COVID restrictions that may be imposed by the local government

Well, have to say this is not what one would expect to read when perusing "RVing in Alaska and Canada" topics.
From pandemic paranoia to political statements to anxiety relief techniques....

Well, it may surprise you, but there are millions and millions of people, who after over a year now living with this pandemic, who aren't scared into submission or paranoid about it any longer.
Current top 5 pandemic concerns for me right now are.
1. Some of our kids' teachers are scamming the pandemic protocols and not doing their jobs, while being able to hide behind the thin veil of the pandemic protocols. And it appears the local school districts and governments are supporting it.
2. Some of our employees and I'm sure others as well are doing essentially the same thing, which is effectively costing us big $ as a corporation (and our Canadian corporation promotes the behaviour) AND making more work for those of us who haven't missed a beat and have to pick up the slack for the work at Homers.
3. 4th straight season of youth hockey not able to be played in Canada. (Far better competition and opportunity than just on the other side of the maple syrup curtain here)
4. Costs and availability of goods and materials.
5. The end of make your own salad (bar) at the Safeway and Albertsons!!! (This is probably the worst one...lol)

Attempting to shame others into disregarding the safety and well being of family and community members isn’t helping your cause. But hey, if that’s what you are going for, GOOD JOB. [emoticon].
