The only supply disruptions are a result of PANIC buying, just like toilet paper at the start of COVID.



I don't think this is about disruption, it is about obscene price increases.

(And for the record, I didn't like the TP supply shortage either)

OP here. Thanks for all the replies. I’ve decided to stop worrying about supply disruptions and just carry on as planned. Wondering if maybe places will be less crowded.
Best,
David

Good for you! I am telling everyone that will listen to get busy and do whatever it is that is on your personal bucket list. Putting things off until all the stars are lined up just right may never happen in the uncertain future we all face. Get on with it, whatever your “it” is.

I’m not sure if there might be an opposite effect. People may stay at their site longer to save on fuel costs (just thinking). If the RV park permits it, many may opt to stay semi permanently, especially if they have a source of income (SS for example). That may become a necessity as the current world systems continue to crash.

It is SNAFU. 20 & 21 it was Covid. Now Ukraine. Down here on the farm, what can we do? About the best we can do is carry on as best we can normally.

You might want to adopt the fuel strategy of driving in the north where fuel stations are few & far between & not guaranteed to be open. Drive on the top half of your tank. When you get to half fill up at the next available supply.


If I did that while towing I'd be stopping every 80-90 miles, not going to happen. Heck stopping every ~170 miles sucks and why my next truck will be a diesel with an extended or Titan tank so I can go 600 miles towing without filling up. I might start carrying a 5 gallon fuel can with me like I did when traveling out West but that's as much as I'm going to change my habits. As far as safety, I don't think 5 gallons of gas in the bed is much additional hazard over the 40 pounds of propane and 7,000 pounds of anchor I'm already carrying.
