RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

I always wanted to do it. DH not so much. At this juncture I am happy to have a large, comfortable home (sweet home).

My go-to place is Johns Hopkins as well... I check this map out every morning. You can click on the US in the left column and it will tell totals for the country. Then zoom in on the map and click on your county to see how many they've found. The numbers can be shocking enough, but we know for a fact that we have way more in our county than is on the map - people still can't get tested. At this point our area looks like there's not much so could be one of the areas that might be opened up for business by Easter. :E

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

on a lighter note, sorta. https://nationalpost.com/news/world/we-will-send-police-with-flame-throwers-italian-mayors-lose-it-at-people-refusing-to-self-isolate“Who is **** supposed to even see you with your hair all done in a casket? Do you understand the casket will be closed?” I actually did laugh for a second, then the tears came.

RE: Animal care in times of Coronavirus

Thanks for your explanation, Dr. Doug. That is weird about rabies... Didn't even know it was a virus.

RE: Animal care in times of Coronavirus

Thanks for the update on veterinary hospitals. I have a question about pets and if they are able to get this. Since it is thought that this virus started with bats and/or those armadillo-like animals in Asia... What is different about them that they can have it and supposedly our pets can't? IMWTK...

RE: Multi month trip planning

This thread certainly fits the bill of side trips. :) We used to use Streets and Trips... Now we use Google Maps, Excel, and Garmin. Plan things out on Google Maps. Lay out our trip in Excel - with where we will stop, if we have reservations, how many miles and how many hours driving per day, stuff like that. On other worksheets info on things we want to do and see. Input the stops into our GPS. Bring the spreadsheet along both as printed papers and as a file in the phone.

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

Not to make light of the corona virus as I am sure more will die from it but.....this is for the United States in 2017 Number of deaths for leading causes of death: Heart disease: 647,457 Cancer: 599,108 Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936 Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201 Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383 Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404 Diabetes: 83,564 Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,672 Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 50,633 Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173 coronavirus: 298 so far So...try to stay away from crowds....but don,t panic...imo There is an interesting calculator that compares these leading causes of death with what could happen with coronavirus. Worth a look... Oh, and speaking of calculators - here's one for how much toilet paper you will need. :)

Interesting interactive Coronavirus calculator

You can move sliders around for what percentage of American's will be infected, then what percentage of people will die to come up with the death toll. It also compares results with the other major causes of death in the US. For instance... If 30 percent of our population gets infected, using a death rate of only 1 percent there would be a death toll of 975,000. For those of you who rate the NYT as fake news, this is just a math calculator - no possible spin. Calculator

RE: Impact of Coronavirus on Parks?

I found this. I have no idea how accurate it is: https://www.campendium.com/camping/covid-19-state-by-state-campground-closures-responses/?fbclid=IwAR1nGYfQo72COLSEVz_7NiCSncj-N2BjyEGiewWybE26WdnBpFoxGpmCOE8Thanks much for this! I check on it every day now. Very informative site - with direct links to each state and their parks. It's not looking like this will be a good year for camping. We've got lots of reservations that will probably be cancelled. Boo hoo.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

^^ Not only that - there are still over 12,000 people in China that are infected that haven't gotten over it yet. How many of them might die?

RE: FL state parks open events canceled

^^ Tell that to my brother-in-law. He thinks kids *don't* get this and he's got his kid being babysat by my mother-in-law who will be 87 in May. Hubby and I are livid! As far as events being canceled - that's a better idea than shutting down overnight camping.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

Several years ago, I learned about hand sanitizing by watching fellows using the restroom and not washing their hands afterward. Good lord, I don't want to touch him by proxy!!! We aren't fanatics, but use sanitizer, wash our hands, wipe the food containers bought in a grocery, wipe surfaces, and carry bear spray. Hey, ya never can be tooooo careful! Come on guys, wash yer hands.We've never done this... But we probably will be doing this soon. From checking on how long the virus can last on surfaces - we've heard from a few hours to 9 days. 9 days?! Can we quarantine our mail or our groceries for 9 days?

RE: The Coronavirus

We've got a lot of reservations already in and at this point we are thinking of continuing with our plans... Except - we also have reservations for tours of some Frank Lloyd Wright houses. We'll wait and get closer to the time - but might have to cancel them. Bunches of people in tight spaces. :E

RE: Question -- "It's Full" Gifts for RVers

Thanks, NOW I get it. Haven't seen any of those Lampoon movies. "Tasteless" is the word I was looking for but posted anyway. You younger folk, this is what you're coming to. It's inevitable.This movie is from 1989. ;)

RE: Your Favorite Browser?

I hate, hate, hate auto-play videos. And if you are in an RV with limited bandwidth it's much worse. I KNOW HOW TO CLICK THE PLAY BUTTON. I think whoever creates/allows auto-play videos should be put in prison. Did I mention that I hate auto-play videos? Having said that, it seems like Firefox does the best job of stopping auto-play videos, but it's not easy, even on Firefox. If anybody knows a browser that does a better job of blocking auto-play videos I'll give it a try.I agree! I can read - I don't need to have a video forced on me. I use Firefox. Under Options - Security - I set Autoplay to block audio and video. It's been working very well.

RE: Who is responsible for discounts?

I don't expect the establishment to quiz me about memberships, or discounts that might apply. I appreciate any clerk that makes an effort to help me save money, but I don't expect that. I will sometimes ask if they honor this or that. All they can say is no. My experience is more with hotels than RV parks, since I rarely use an RV park, but I expect the experience to be very similar. If I ask if they have a AAA discount, and they do, I will admit that I resent being asked to see my card. And in fact, I am almost never asked to actually show proof of AAA/AARP/GS, or any other. I can probably count on one hand the number of times that my word on the matter hasn't been satisfactory. It's not that they don't have the right to ask, it's just that 99 other places did not ask, and this one place thinks I am lying about it, which makes them a less enjoyable establishment than those other 99. Not a deal breaker by any stretch, just that it tells me something about the place.Really? If I'm a member and expect a discount I *want* to prove it. I don't want non-members to say they are and get my discount. The establishment doesn't know me or anyone else and therefore one's "word" doesn't mean anything. As for the OP's question: I agree with most others that it's the customer's responsibility to request applicable discounts.

RE: Van Camping

We mostly camp in state or national parks. Sometimes we are sightseeing, sometimes we are enjoying the park for hiking. Often we combine the two. This spring we'll be staying at Ohiopyle State Park in PA to hike and to tour some Frank Lloyd Wright houses. After that we'll be taking a circle tour of state parks in NY and PA that have exceptional natural beauty - especially gorges - we love hiking. We're hoping to get up to the Bruce Peninsula later and then go to NYC again in the fall. We use our van pretty much like any RV. It is easier to get it ready to go than our trailer so we use it more. Didn't even dewinterize the trailer last year and it looks like we won't this year either... If you want to see where we've been check out our trip pics linked in my signature.
