I've got a 6-week trip planned starting in a couple of weeks. Since a large part of it is in FL state parks, some of our planning has been in the works for the better part of a year.

What's going to happen to campers like me if the fear of this new bug continues to spiral out of control? If the authorities decide they need to close the parks, where will we all go? I have no intention of cancelling my trip at this point, but I'm concerned about where I might find myself if I'm 1500 miles from home and being evicted from a campground. I envision Walmart parking lots being inundated with displaced RV'ers.

What plan B's is anyone developing?

It's just Mrs. SpeakEasy and me now (empty-nesters). But we can choose from among 7 grandchildren to drag along with us!

Compared to hotels, RV camping is the much safer option. Think about it: Not only do you have your own private living space--used by no one else!--but your own cooking facilities, toilet and shower. No reason for campgrounds to close.

I hope Uncle has it all figured out by then since we head for Florida at the same time.

Make sure you're stocked up on supplies and go. The more you take with you, the less you will have to go in crowded stores.
I would not cancel my trip over something that could happen.

Getting a Flu shot will do you more good. 16,000 dead so far this Flu season. What, 12 dead from this over hyped epidemic.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Worry about the flu, highway deaths, lightning strikes,snake bites,buffalo stampedes. Coronovirus is way down the list. Maybe you will have the park all to yourself.

Listen to medical experts and take normal precautions as you would the flu. No more group hugs, shaking hands which is a really outdated way of making sure the other guy isn’t going to shoot you. Wash your hands before you touch any other part of yourself or others. Carry some hand cleaner and use it. A flu shot won’t help you as Coronavirus ain’t the flu.

I think if you had your trip planned during hurricane season you might have more to worry about parks being closed.

The biggest problem with this virus is the news MEDIA.

Please keep this discussion on topic. The question is about whether the parks will remain open or not.

And remember to keep politics out of the discussion.
