One would think that they have never heard of powdered milk. Frozen bread or homemade bread. When your can is on the line like now some will live while others will die because of the decisions they make.

What are you going to eat? What if you both get too sick to drive?


I eat in my rigs galley. I would remote camp where mobile has a signal and not move unnecessarily. If I got sick with what looked like C19 I would call 911 and explain my symptoms so responders are prepared. I would use google maps or what3words app to direct help to me with 3 meter accuracy.

Politicians. Now that's a stupidity that can't be fixed. How about they just leave us alone to live our lives as we see fit. I can decide for myself better they can. Say, how about prosecuting those Senators that sold all those stocks right before the market tanked. You know, right after they had their Senators meeting in DC.

Why does everyone think that 100% of the people will get deathly ill from Corona virus? Fact is to may have or had it and not even know about it. That is how little it will affect most people! Yes you need to be aware of things, but at the same time why act like he world is going to end!

The travel and tourism industry is being turned on its head. Impacts are deepest where people are in close proximity, such as air and cruise where 'social distancing' is impossible.

As reality sets in with the new normal, RVing and camping with your select cohabitants will be the choice of travel and escape from 'cabin fever' .

Stay home orders. My RV is also my home. Wherever it goes we can practice distancing and sanitation just the same as in the S&B

I do not get the rash of camp closures, I do get closure of public gathering places, activity, washrooms in those camps. RVing and camping may return to its roots of family time, smores, hiking and biking and outdoor activity with your loved ones instead of the face to face social interaction our society has changed into. Personal value is not measured in how your friends like you, but in how your family loves you.

Private camp industry professionals are reserved but optimistic that the industry will weather this crisis well, sectors ( camps) whose guests are drawn by the in camp activity, or to crowded attractions in the area could see attractions close, camp activity shuttered if it drew people into close proximity.

Camps whose focus is spacious outdoor activity with minimal group activity, may well benefit from the crisis, At least on occupancy, less so from value added ventures.

The industry concern is not for itself, but for you
max. No longer a camp owner

All of us have to eat wether you live in a camper or a house. Grocery stores are still open in most states.

We normally have enough for a couple weeks eats and could stock up enough for a month if needed. Might not be the best culinary selection towards the end but no fear of starving.

The whole point would be not to get sick. If we are out isolated, there is no source to catch the virus.
