I don't know about the actual situation with Covid-19 an lock downs and the whys and wherefores but there are places that we can still go to fish and do whatever we want to . I would like to identify some.
have set in the Mohave in the Mh for 7 months and three here with nothing to do and I am about stir crazy or more so than usual.
Around here, to the east there is a cluster as in Nashville of cases among fairly newly arrived Illegals as in Nashville too. But the lakes right here and the river is crowded on weekends..but I don't have a boat and so on.
White River in Arkansas and other Places there still open for trout fishing? Texas Coast if it is safe? and any suggestions where it is safe and not locked down. Don't say the Arizona Desert. Got to go back there and pick up Mh and some other things but that is it. Anything to do in the Big Bend where you can hook up to water and hopefully sewer and there is something to do for a broken down ole Codger? Or let's see Missouri? Some place where a days boat rental isn't 500.00. How about Safe area on Great Lakes on leeward side of the lakes?
No there ain't no place to rent a boat here but over the mountain and 500.00 a day on waters now crowed by Nashvillans.
Aren't any Rallies going on are there, speaking of which I need to get our deposits back on three.
This isn't an orderly or organized bit here but what can you expect at this time of night and waiting on pain meds to kick in [emoticon]
Suggestions suggestions ad maybe see you there.

Maybe southern Id or northern Ut.
The area from Bear Lake up toward Rexburg has a lot of streams, numerous lakes, and should harbor a spot where an (as you call it) old codger can wet a string. And there are boondocking areas around some of them too.

might be time to look for a boat (canoes and portAboats can go on the MH)

we recently upgraded our little fishing boat to something more family friendly (wife and i have a 6 and 4 year old) since our camping season has been decimated.


Q: Whats brown and sticky???

A long time ago when we were sailors instead of RVers we put our boat into the Tennessee River, I think around Nashville. Went thru the dam that has a rise of 55 feet as I remember. At the other end of the river is Kentucky Lake in Kentucky (surprise?). Good fishing and a few campgrounds in the area.

definitely a good summer to be a boat owner. we used the camper one night in the driveway so far this year. Used the boat a lot though.

It's not bad out there, since most people are staying away. Most places are closed and so the ones that are open are pretty empty and you can enjoy them with their limited amenities. Think about what you want to do and just go do it. Be safe and wear a mask and all that stuff, but don't stop living your life and the way you know how

The State and most County Campgrounds in MN are open. But, the bathrooms, showers, interpretive centers, etc remain closed. Iowa is the same way and I think South Dakota is that way too. You just have to look at the maps by county in each state to see where the hot spots are and then avoid them.

As an avid bass fisherman and RVer, I've completely given up fishing due to the enormous amount of boat activity on every State park in VA.

30 minute wait at the ramp gets old quick and I'm talking middle of the week.

I'll take soap operas and whoopi goldberg.

LOL

I'm amazed... Same way in TX too. We are not sure to even plan trips.... They are hard to plan anyway but finding open places makes it way harder.


4 whopping cylinders on Toyota RV's. Talk about great getting good MPG. Also I have a very light foot on the pedal. I followed some MPG advice on Livingpress.com and I now get 22 MPG! Not bad for a home on wheels.
