I am sure I am not the only one in this boat, but it looks like my April shakedown trip will be cancelled. Usually within the next couple weeks I am getting the RV de-winterized and ready to go out. I have more time and may still do that, but I am hoping to be able to go out this summer as planned. And I will use my RV for quarentine if needed also. Stay safe out there everyone.

I would do it, unless your destination is closed. This lockdown can't go on for very long or the country is going into a depression.

Now, if the gas stations close, that's different, but that would be completely insane.

Was planning to do the Canadian Maritimes next month. Just got my passport-but looks like Canada had a different idea. [emoticon] Oh well, hopefully we can try this fall. Have some property down in the Wayne NF, that may be all the rving that gets done for a few weeks(unless the higher ups decide that everyone is to stay home [emoticon] [emoticon]

Hope you get to do that Canadian Maritime trip, routeforty! We did that a few years back and it was wonderful. Probably my favorite camping trip ever.

We were to leave today to head to Kearney, NE for the sandhill crane migration. Maybe next year.

I "heard" that Tennessee was throwing their parks open to the public. Can you imagine the RV dollars headed to the Volunteer State!

I'm taking my rig out of storage a month early to use as a home office/study area. It's going to cost me ~$60 to heat for the month, but that's cheap for the sanity it will preserve.

Could you write off the $60 on your taxes as a "Business Expense: since it is for work? Just kidding. Sounds like a good plan and way to use the rig at these times
