RE: Boating Safety

Another good tip from the Coat Guard Aux folks: if you have kayaks/canoes/paddlebboards or any other small boat-type of thing, be sure to put you name and phone number on it. That way, if your paddleboard blows off your dock in a storm, the Coast Guard can call and make sure you are actually quite safe, before they launch a search for a body....

RE: One of those things about traveling

So far, the people below the dams have taken the evacuation orders seriously, thank goodness. I'm just praying that the huge Dow Chemical Plant is on high enough ground??

RE: Oregon trip

We drove up the Oregon coast, and I don't remember it being any different than the midwest, as far as humidity goes. It's an amazing drive!!

RE: Nascar Follies

It rained all day, so we actually WATCHED the race :-) It was kind of resfreshing, after weeks of nothing. And it was nice to see Ryan Newman back in the driver's seat, after that awful crash.

RE: RV shows are back - at least in Tucson

Regarding Hershey and MARVAC (Michigan) and other states. States are opening at different rates... Some states.. Well I'm not going to comment beyond this because I wish not to make work for the moderator. :) The result is some shows will happen. some won't. I suspect that Michigan will be very slow to have events where the attendees are not socially-distanced; ESPECIALLY in the SE corner of the State. I just saw the CDC guidelines for opening schools (another "not-enough-distance" situation - the criteria will be tough to follow)

RE: Do you use glass plates ?

I can't find a Corelle pattern I like Dale I'm boring - mine is plain white. I jazz up the table with bright placemats or runners, depending on the season or holiday

RE: Do you use glass plates ?

We have used Corelle ware for the last 15 years. Haven't broken a plateor bowl yet. I started using it at our cottage due to it being lightweight and taking up very little space in the cabinets - that was 25 years ago. Still using it, and haven't had a broken piece, either.

RE: Snowbirding 2020/21

Just call me "racoon" because that's what I'll look like by this fall :-) I'm fine with social distancing and wearing a mask and toting hand sanitizer. I'm sorry for the Canadian Snowbirds if they have to stay north :-(

RE: Class B camper Van

There are also customizable Class B's - the one that pops into my head is Sportsmobile, who will build exactly what you want as far as layout and amenities goes. Ed and I have a converted Transit-250 cargo van that's more of a "steel tent with a huge comfy bed" - but for our sightseeing wanderlust, it's perfect because it can go on restricted-length roads like the Going-To-The-Sun Road in Glacier NP.

RE: Travel restrictions

Whose going to know if you are self-quarantining? Who's going to know how long you've been in the state? Are drones going to follow every out-of-state license plate? So you enter MT and go to an RV park. Are you supposed to check in and say you're under quarantine? This whole subject sounds ridiculous, kind of like using the honor system to enforce speed limits. I agree - we just arrived back home in Michigan after a winter in FL. I had NO food - what the heck was I supposed to do - gnaw on twigs for 2 weeks? I put on my mask and dropped $300 on groceries to last a couple of weeks. For those headed south into Florida on I-95, they are still stopping every passenger vehicle/RV, etc at the weigh station (and waving the semi trucks around) - the traffic was backed up about 2 miles.

RE: Still no Stimulus Payment

As always, first thing this morning checked bank accounts. Normal "first of the month" activity, no "Stimulus Funds". Oh, well, when (if) if happens, it happens. Until then I won't spend it. Same here. Also: no state unemployment because we're business owners; and the paperwork required for a PPP loan reached the *ridiculous* point and we told our bank to forget it. Fortunately, we're Baby Boomers. Way back in our teens, we were told "don't depend on the gov't for your retirement" and we heeded that advice. We'll muddle through this.

RE: Ramp recommendation for large senior dog for Class A?

My elderly dogs simply wouldn't walk up a ramp (unless it was so stoutly-built that it was impossible to use). I found they were happier being helped up the steps using a "handle" (simply a wide fleece-covered band that went around their chest, with a handle on the top) My late Aussie would wait at the stairs for me to "put his handle on". And MY level of effort wasn't really all that much - I wasn't carrying him, just giving some stability and forward motion.

RE: Yes!! I found a way to RV during this awful Covid isolation!

What a great idea!!! Have fun grocery-getting :-)

RE: When this is over

I wonder if it will ever be "over" - but the first chance I get to hug the daylights out of our extended family, I'm going on a hugging marathon :-)

There's a new "thought" about Covid-19: that it's a blood-seeking virus and causes clots, even in folks in their 40s and 50s. Just one more reason to avoid getting infected. Blood clots

RE: Any one else afraid to travel right now ?

Guy Roan: we are headed back to Michigan in early May - and we will be driving my minivan (this, in hindsight, is the worst possible time to be without an RV). We're near Canaveral, so can make the drive in 2 days. Friends who traveled home recently said to bring TP (like the tail end of a roll) in case of none being available at a rest area. They also found that most fast-food places are not allowing the public to use their restrooms in order to protect their employees. I will be armed with hand sanitizer/masks/wipes, etc. For $25, I bought a "Luggable Loo" - basically a 5gal bucket with a seat and lid that gets lined with a trash bag, add kitty litter, and you have a cheap porta-potty. Ed can get away with using a shrub as a urinal - me, not so much :-) But Ed says we'll use truck stops as much as possible - and we'll sleep in the van, so I'm bringing small pillows and sleeping bags. We have 2 dogs and have found the hotel rooms that welcome dogs, aren't always a hallmark of cleanliness to start with. We figure one night's discomfort is better than bringing C-19 home with us.

RE: Still no Stimulus Payment

Thanks, everyone - was mildly wondering why we hadn't seen ours, either? But it makes sense that SS would be towards the end of the line....

RE: What meal to cook next

We've been eating my cooking for too many weeks - last week we splurged and picked up a couple of Dominos pizzas. Words can't descibe how incredibly-delicious a 2-item pizza can be when you haven't had it for weeks....LOL!

RE: The normal things we miss?

What do I miss? Dinner with Ed in a nice restaurant, trying unique foods. Lunch with my best girlfriends. (I HATE to cook!) Family get-togethers. Hugging friends and family. But we and our extended family are well - and that's more important right now...
