RE: And Texas Caves In

In terms of criteria to return to work, I think one of the first considerations should be the extent of the virus in a particular locale (city/county). Now, impossible really to quantify that properly without testing everyone. But, clearly, some locales are better off and less infected than others. My county has a population of 157,000(ish) and currently has 96 confirmed cases, with 6 deaths. If those numbers stay, or start downward, then I would suggest that a locale like that can be a candidate for reopening sooner rather than later. Clearly major cities are not going to be able to open as quickly as smaller population areas. BUT, do we, as a nation, make everyone abide by the criteria applied to large and densely populated areas? I would submit the answer should be no. Mike I would certainly agree with this.

RE: And Texas Caves In

Well over 300,000 cases with almost 12,000 deaths in the US, and you think Texas is wrong for trying to protect people who are too stupid to take common sense precautions on their own? But you don't care about them. You will trade their lives for the 1% who might die from this virus. And you think you are compassionate. Dont put words into my mouth I didnt say! I do know a guy who recently retired who has the virus. His wife just died from it. My son's friend, who recently lost his father to cancer has a mother who is fighting for her life because of the virus. This is real! The stupidity of some people nsver ceases to amaze me.

RE: We're using the TT's fridge as a "semi-lifeboat"

if an earthquake knocks down our house, we could stay in the trailer. If an earthquake is strong enough to knock down your house, I wonder what it would do to an Rv? Rock around a bit? Yea, I was going to make the same comment after I hot yo the last posy. You beat me to it!

RE: Bluewater Bridge Pt Edward/Port Huron - NO CASH - UFN

Of course you have to hand your passport back and forth. Also the cursory look into your car. Not sure what getting rid of cash transactions are buying. I think you're confusing tolls with customs. They are separate, and the toll booths aren't accepting cash, UFN. CBSA/CBP are BAU, as far as I know. Good point, but you can’t go through one without the other, no?

RE: Frog in fresh water holding tank!

Put a snake in the tank and the snake will eat the frog. Yeah, then you’ll need to put in a mongoose to eat the snake, then a leopard to eat the mongoose.....where does it end???

RE: Traveling for Winter Sports

Peter, I think this would be a bad idea on multiple fronts. Leave the trailer unattended at a rest stop? Not unless you’re trying to get rid of it! I’m not sure how many schools would allow you to camp there over a weekend. People in the town might not appreciate it. I also wouldn’t want to tow a trailer to VT in the snow. It could be tricky enough with just a car or truck. I’ve been in VT when they’ve closed the road due to bad conditions. Also, it can be COLD! I’ve been in VT many times when it is below 0F. No way I’d camp in that. Seriously, a lot of places offer ski and stay packages for almost the same price as a lift ticket.

RE: camping in ohio

Shelter in place. Stay at home. Leave the campgrounds that are open (there aren't many) for people who HAVE to use them because they have no home. (full-timers) Exactly! Agree!

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

our fearless leader is now tweeting that we need to immediately manufacture a gazillion ventilators. And he is correct, henceforth why he invoked the Defense Production Act. This virus has hit home. My son's girlfriend's grandfather died in NY from it. Her grandmother is hospitalized with it and it's not looking good. Both are in their mid-80s. I still stand by my original comments that for MOST of us it won't be an issue and chances of catching it are slim for the average person. But please, stop making fun of the virus, stop criticizing the President, grow up and start being helpful instead of holier-than-thou. If you are nervous, stay home. If you aren't, be careful. If you won't be careful, stay away from people. I challenge any of you to say what YOU would have done. I challenge any other President to say what THEY would have done. Hindsight is always 2020. We need to come together right now, not push each other apart. Thank you, Crowe...well said. I’m sorry about your son’s girlfriend’s grandparents. My parents are the same age, and are probably my biggest concern right now. I talk to them often, encourage them to stay home, but you never know what they are going to do.

RE: Spearfish, SD

You really don't need to spend 3 days at Devils Tower, maybe overnight if you want to catch the early morning light for photography. But the Tower itself is an hour or so to walk around the it, there is a prairie dog town that you may want to visit, I think that's near the cg and that's about it. The site isn't that large. There is a very pricey KOA right outside the gate and there is a National Grassland which I assume has camping not too far away. Little Big Horn is about the same, 3 or 4 hours if you take your time. I actually enjoyed it more than I expected but there is a drive thru the battleground, the sites where soldiers were killed are marked, and there are some presentations and Ranger walks. And that's all. I'd add Badlands to my list and slot a couple of hours for Wall Drugs for some maximum tourista kirsch. The Minuteman site isn't work the time since they dropped the silo tours. Custer SP is worth a day or two by itself and there are two national caves in the area. And lastly there is a Mammoth Dig site just to the south. And of course Rushmore which I find underwhelming. Having visited this area last summer, I completely agree. We didn’t get to Little Big Horn, so I can’t comment on that, but we did enjoy the Minuteman site. Bear in mind a Wind Cave has been closed for a while due to an inoperable elevator.

RE: Frog in fresh water holding tank!

but how in the world can I get him out of my tank before it riots and makes a whole other mess or problems? I don't think one frog will cause much of a riot. I agree. Now if the Jets frogs and the Sharks frogs are in the same tank, then there can be some issues!

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

NY is emptying the prisons to make room for the people violating the stay at home rules. I'd stay at home and not chance it. Can you imagine the storage fees for your RV while you're in the pokey? What is wrong with you?

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

They've taken hundreds to jail for violating the stay at home orders. If I were you I wouldn't chance it. Bypass Delaware and any other state that will confine you for being out and about. Better yet, stay in Florida. Who are “they” and where, in the US, have they arrested hundreds for violating stay at home orders? As to the OP, I think I’d avoid ny right now.

RE: Wheel Lugs

I check the lugs with a torque wrench before each trip. Never had a lug loosen up, but still check. It takes me just a minute.

Leave it to the government to over react and screw up our lives. Do you follow the news at all?

RE: RV Parks to be used to Quaratine people

It's crazy. This manufactured crisis has people stupid. According to the story, Los Angeles Co has a population of 10 million (10,000,000) but only 230 total cases and 2 deaths. That's a crisis? Hell, they abort more babies than that everyday. Do you really think it is manufactured?? Perhaps the Arizona heat is getting to you.

RE: Big Oak River Camp, Camp Wood, TX refused to return deposit

Who's prohibiting you from the group campout? What a ridiculous statement. While I don’t think the park owner should necessarily absorb the costs, anyone who thinks it is a good idea to do anything as a group right now isn’t too bright. It is not a statement....it's a simple question. You’re right, my apologies. It was not a statement, it was a question. Still, to question who is prohibiting a group camp out is silly. No one, obviously, is prohibiting this, but you would be pretty stupid to get together in a group of 30 people.
