This is why so many people are going to die unnecessarily in the US. We've been raised all our lives to think that our country is the exception to everything, and that we as individuals are exceptions to every rule.


3/4 timing in a DIY van conversion. Backroads, mountains, boondocking, sometimes big cities for a change of pace.

Considering that AZ Governor declare Golf Courses As Essential Businesses, people already have a distort view about AZ resident's grasp of reality. Things like this don't help the perception! [emoticon]

and to add, the Governor mobilized the National Guard to, (drum roll) stock supermarket shelves.....


i'm not seeing golf courses on the guv's list of essential services and businesses.

and what's the problem with the guard helping beef up the local supply chain? fully and consistently filled store shelves will contribute to calming the public.

When I'm in my motorhome, I'm in my home. I don't own or rent any other real estate. So I believe I'm obeying the law. I'm staying at home. I also went to Kroger and Walmart today, but that seems to be allowed. I'm staying in Texas for now because it hasn't jumped on the "close your state parks" bandwagon. The order I saw for Dallas County applied to residents of Dallas County. I'm not a resident of anywhere, except where I'm parked for the night.

Exactly and, it's a horrible death as well as you drown in your own bodily fluids.

This year, our 'RV experience' will be backyard campomg.

The highways are open. Any statements to the contrary here are incorrect. Lots of folks are making their way home at this very moment.

Did I miss something? I haven't seen anybody talking about highways being closed.

I guess you have a pretty big boat. Mine was a trawler with full sized fridge and freezer plus a freezer in the laz, and big water and holding tanks, so we could spend a month on board if we were to forego fresh veggies and milk. Seriously, how long are you going to live on your boat without interacting with other people and probably adding to their problems. Where I live they just closed our island to non full time residents because our hospital and first responders are at winter staffing levels and can’t handle the summer people who want to come and hide out. Instead of riding this out at home you would just be adding to the problem, as fun a solution as it may seem to be.

So you're suggesting the OP would go to the store less if living on land in a RV park?


I'll never understand the incessant antagonism on the forum...

What is wrong with you people?
What's your interpretation of what Dutchy actually said?
Did your brains interpret "traveling to the cottage to hunker down" to mean "stopping at every rest area, grocery store and Stuckeys along the way and sneezing on everyone they see, shaking hands and kissing babies"?
What better way to isolate than heading to the cottage, presumably not a condo or in the middle of a city, to wait this out?

Would you two rather live in your popup camper in Colorado or your microbus in wherever your at trying to find mail order meds than going "home" if you had one, wherever that is?

I think some of you have the bat soup fever already and haven't self diagnosed yet....

Personally, this is a great time to get away for a bit into the back country. That's why we go camping. To get away from people. Triple bonus. More time since the kids school and sports lives are on hold, weather is breaking into spring time and less chance of catching or spreading anything when you're by yourself in a vehicle or in the woods or mountains somewhere than any even remotely sub-urban area, much less any urban areas.

But you eternal pessimists stay home please. Since most of you are retired, it shouldn't be an issue...
Personally and professionally it is much easier to get my job done with only 10% of the normal traffic on the road.
And less frustrating too.
And since I'm fortunate enough to be considered a critical infrastructure type operation, I get to keep working while many are not able to and are beginning to see the financial stress of it.
That said, there is a real chance that will change for myself, the company and the industry. But I hope not.
