With gas prices the way they are, there hasn't been a better time to take a long motorhome trip in years. What is to keep someone from doing just that, assuming you stayed with the rig and didn't venture to any businesses? Most aren't open anyway, from what I have read.


The main negative of getting out with our RV right now would be the poor optics of it ... the few others on the roads might not take too kindly to it ... and I can understand that.

We're staying home doing gardening and RV maintennance. [emoticon]

Living Florida, my plan is to leave if a hurricane comes. Otherwise I will just stay here.

There's a lot to be learned from this article:

Why the Second Wave of the 1918 Spanish Flu Was So Deadly
https://www.history.com/news/spanish-flu-second-wave-resurgence
From the Article: wrote:

Harris believes that the rapid spread of Spanish flu in the fall of 1918 was at least partially to blame on public health officials unwilling to impose quarantines during wartime. In Britain, for example, a government official named Arthur Newsholme knew full well that a strict civilian lockdown was the best way to fight the spread of the highly contagious disease. But he wouldn’t risk crippling the war effort by keeping munitions factory workers and other civilians home.

The problem is that though the gas prices are down. Lowest I've seen in a LONG LONG time.... Parking places are scarce so if you have one.. KEEP IT.


Home is where I park it.

We are staying put for now. We generally go North for the Summer to my daughters and my wife is getting figitty I am afraid if we leave early we could come down with it. Now we are safe, just going out for food and necessary things. I am afraid if people start to mingle again, which they are doing in some areas, we will be back where we started. Where is patients. Is going to work or the beach more important than letting this "killer" disease loose for more distruction.

We will be leaving AZ in about 10 days and heading to our home in WA. We have plenty of food in our motorhome so will not need to shop anywhere on our way home. We have a full 150 gallon fuel tank so will only need to fill up once or twice at a truck stop on the way home and I will be wearing disposable gloves for that. We plan on staying in roadside pullouts, BLM land, etc, so won't be needing rv parks or campgrounds. I'd say we will be plenty isolated from contact with other people.
