Possibly the term “armchair quarterback” applies here.

Hunker where you can.
We are in northern Michigan leaving the Detroit area was a no brainer.
We left Florida early this year as the handwriting was on the wall. We didn't need anyone to tell us to look out for our own safety.
We stayed far from the people in our RV park for over a week before leaving.
We studied the Inet and learned of the failing of our government and realized they were either in denial or were interested in other things than the American people.
Bottom line it is your family and your neighbors this will not last forever so hunker down and stay hunkered till this leaves or is considered safe by the CDC not the current government


The boat IS the hunkering down.

Staying in Florida I have 36 unavoidable exposures to public areas over the next 6 months. Going to the boat I have 9, including 7 stops for fuel in the way up.

So the safe move is the boat. The risky move is staying in Florida.

I'm actually really glad a lot of people don't understand this or the boat would probably be stolen already. Lol

We've been on self quarantine for 3 weeks here already. Florida is just starting to pop off with Covid-19. It'll get a lot worse before it gets better. NY will have run its course by mid summer probably.


So it's been 6 days since you first posted and likely longer since you started contemplating it. Are you typing from your boat or still procrastinating?
FYI you've been sheltering in place for over a week or more, what's the difference?
Is this about the virus or just pining over your decision?
You could have been on the boat 4 days ago and long gone off of terra firma.
Who cares where you park? You have a TC. Half the problem with this is people not thinking clearly and it seems as though youre in the same boat (figuratively).

This is an interesting post. I read this on Facebook and think it is relevant - if you go out, treat everything like you have the virus and don't want to pass it to others. If you do that, you should be safe and you should not spread if you are a carrier. I think this is good advice for the OP. If he needs to go home to his boat, then by all means, use caution and go. But, you might be better off just staying where you are and waiting for this to get over. If you stay safe, then you will be safe.

I did see that Florida has checkpoints at the boarder not allowing people without a purpose to enter Florida. So, those people running to the beach or a vacation home will be turned around. The best way to stop the spread is to stay put.

I do have a friend moving from Florida to California this week. He has no choice, he sold his house in Florida and has to move. Bad week to do it, but no choice. When he gets to his house in CA he will have to stay put for 14 days or so. Hopefully he stays safe when he travels. Not a good plan, but no choice.

Good Luck to you.

Not passing judgement, but just to be clear, the Florida checkpoints are only for the southern most keys AKA The Florida Keys. The Florida governor has closed the beaches and prohibited rentals for the next 2 weeks.

magic, today the announced that the check points are also set up at the Florida/Alabama line. Trying to dissuade Louisiana people, since NO is another epicenter.

Thanks, I looked that up and see it happening. I think my biggest fear is that as we leave Florida they will stop us and insist we take some "extra" Northerners with us a baggage! [emoticon]

Texas governor issued an executive order that says anyone not in the excepted categories who crosses into Texas from Louisiana must go into quarantine.

Travel to and from Louisiana will be restricted to those handling essential services. He said this applies to travel by road from any location in the state of Louisiana and will be enforced by the Texas Department of Public Safety at entry points into the state. The order does not apply to travel related to commercial activity, military service, emergency response, health response, or critical infrastructure functions.

He also said people flying from Miami, Atlanta, Detroit and Chicago, California and Washington state into Texas must be self-quarantined.
