RE: What's Opened?

For what it's worth, I heard on TV News this morning the Georgia Beaches are open. Not sure if they said still open, but thought they said reopened.

RE: Cruel Summer

If people are cancelling reservations even into the summer, and things open up, do you think those cancelled reservations will be gobbled up and the parks will be just as hard to get into? Or will the parks still be barren as people error on the side of caution?

How come?

How come when we go on a two or three week trip the time flies by. Seems like in no time it's over and time to head home. But when I'm stuck at home for a week, it seems like months? I guess the biggest pain is cancelling long awaited reservations for Fort Pickens, FL.

RE: Good day today!

At least one good thing has come out of these troubled times. The media has been so obsessed with current conditions, projections, warnings, etc there has been no room for political commercials. Just gotta look at the positive side.

RE: Good day today!

Crowe, stay on top of that A1c thing. I know it can be hard and even depressing at times, but you gotta gut it out. Trust me I know. And yes it is the little things that count.

RE: Well, They gone and done it

Well at least some attention has been deviated from toilet paper......we are now entering into the haircut pandemic. I think there's a conspiracy going on. No barber shops - shoulder length hair! Pot is becoming more legalized! Don't know yet how they'll bring back bell bottoms. But looks to me we're headed for the 60's again.

RE: kinda light posting

I painted an old rocking chair we have, just so I could watch the paint dry.

RE: Spearfish, SD

Thanks all for the great info. Now just got to wait for September. Stay well & safe travels.

How many of you have/use a GPS for RVs? We currently have a Garmin Drive Smart 61, which is a basic auto GPS, but we're thinking of upgrading to one designed for RVs to add such features like tunnel/bridge height, various length issues, etc. Particularly the height issue. What's available that won't cost and arm & leg?

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

magic, today the announced that the check points are also set up at the Florida/Alabama line. Trying to dissuade Louisiana people, since NO is another epicenter.

RE: Spearfish, SD

Horsedoc, Is this the park you were referring to? If not which one? For a campground right next to Little Big Horn National Monument, I stayed at 7th Ranch RV Park Pleasant owners, very clean, quiet park with full hookups and good sized spaces. I was going to ask about this place. You said it was nice. We only plan to spend one night there. Which do you fell is better: see the Monument park then check in or spend the night and see the Monument the next day? We only have a couple hour drive that day. thanks all

RE: The perfect RV campground

Trees, trees and more trees. Don't need open spaces for my satellite dish. I came out to camp (& see trees) not watch TV. But that's just me.

RE: Spearfish, SD

Expanding our search for campgrounds to Montana. Thinking about seeing the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument and would like to camp near by. But need electric. About the only thing I can find is Tongue River State Park, Montana. Not the cloest, but has power. Any thoughts on this park or any other near the monument? Also in Wyoming, we want to see the Devil's Tower, but the only campground I can find near there is a KOA and really don't want to refinance the coach to spend a night. WOW! Any other campgrounds around there, with electric, worth staying? Boy the pioneer life in the wild west is rough! Can't find many, if any parks with conveniences without selling the farm.

RE: Spearfish, SD

Bionic, we chose this park, although it's not set in stone yet, because we want to camp in Colorado and really don't want to venture to far in. We only drive 3, or 4 hours tops, a day and coming from Nebraska, this seems to be about the only park I can find that isn't too far off our path that has electric. Secondly both the DW & myself have respiratory issues and don't want to get in to too high elevations. Totally open to suggestions. We would like to spend a day or two, or more, in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana each, before heading to our rally in Spearfish for a week. thanks

Spearfish, SD

The travel club we belong to is having the annual reunion/rally in Spearfish, SD in mid Sept. Being from St. Louis, MO we'd like to take in a number of states before arriving at the reunion. We've never been to that part of the country and want "color our map in", so to speak. Thoughts at this time are to trek to Colorado's north eastern corner, North Sterling SP, to Custer State Park Blue Bell Campground, some where near/in Devils Tower/Black Hills area, to Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument and then to Spearfish. After that head back home, spending 2-3 nights per location. We generally prefer, State, COE, Federal or even county parks. Private parks if we must. Issue being that a lot of parks we'd like to stay don't have electricty, which for us is a must. Any thoughts, suggestions, hints or just opinions? Really pretty much open and have plenty of time to plan, just that this lock down should at least be sort of productive. Also looking for sites, history & eateries. thanks

Missouri SPs closed

"Missouri state parks will no longer allow overnight visitors starting Friday, when all campgrounds and lodging will close until May. The Department of Natural Resources announced the change Monday to help limit the spread of the coronavirus and COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus. State parks will remain open for daily use but will close all campgrounds, park-run lodging and concessionaire-run lodging at night, according to the department." -StL Post Dispatch Another SP closing camping, but allowing day use. Don't ask me I just doing as I'm told, if I like it or not.

RE: Tims Ford SP to St. Louis, via Vogel SP

Thanks for all the great replies, but it looks now that our plans are going to be cancelled. Our new RV should be completed in early April, that was the reason for the shake down trip, but looks like that won't happen. We are in lock down. Essential travel only and I don't picking up a new RV falls into that category. Besides are there any campgrounds open? I just hope that the powers to be realize that restocking your beer supply IS considered essential travel.

RE: Insanity in the grocery stores...

I've been contemplating the empty store shelves and some of the comments here jive with what I've concluded. Indeed some of the shopping may be for overstocking peoples cabinets, but another factor is the closure of restaurants. Think of it this way. Even if you used to eat dinner out only once a week, if you're eating all your meals at home that means you need 15% more food from the grocery store every week. There are also a lot of people who grab lunch from a drive thru or a food truck. Suddenly they are making five more lunches every week. These additional meals mean a surge in grocery shopping and the stores will take time to catch up. Agreed there was a lot of toilet paper hoarding initally, but the same thing applies. People used to spend 8 hours a day at work and the kids were at school eight hours a day, using someone elses supply of TP. Everyone's at home now, so plan on 50% increase in TP need at every house in the country. Excellent point. Don't like all this hoarding, but now it sort of make sense, except for the radicals.
