We just had several people from NY pull in here today and they overnighted along the way

No need to be hostile. I didn't have to log in to read it and I don't have an account with the NYT. Article is too long to reprint. Suffice it to say if someone is planning out of state travel to make sure they can abide by the rules if there are any. Not a big deal.

I clicked on what you posted and in order to read it I was required to log on, and they wanted my e-mail address
Do you give your e-mail address to any one that asks for it ?

Guy


I was able to access the NYT link without needing to put in a email address or login.. Some places like NYT like to randomly hit you with a paywall upfront and sometimes they allow you to look at things..

I would copy and paste it to this thread but as said, it IS a long, long article that would take considerable amount of time and effort.

It IS possible if someone wanted to they could copy and paste the text (minus the pictures and other click bait stuff) into say a word doc, save as a PDF then upload to a sharable google drive location and then post a shareable link..

MOD'S NOTE: I'm pretty sure that copying/pasting copyrighted material and hosting it someplace else to get around their pay-gate is pretty illegal. Let's please not do that here.

And as for the back and forth over the login, I don't think anyone meant any offense. Let's please shake hands and move along.

Only if there's a bottle of hand sanitizer handy! [emoticon]

A lot of states seem to be going to reservation only for their state park campgrounds. That doesn't mean you need a reservation far in advance--often the same day is okay--but walk-in first-come, first-served camping seems to be going away in many places.

With a reservation, at least, in many places there's no need to talk to anyone more than the gate guard or a quick check-in with the office. You just drive in and plonk yourself down in your reserved site and that's that.



We were startled a few weeks ago when we went to Jetty Park at Cape Canaveral (which also has a campground) - even though there was a gate attendant, we had to pay a day use fee using one of those QR Code things posted along the entry road. The attendant was just there to see the payment posted via my daughter's phone held up to the window. It makes sense, but clearly I need to upgrade my "Tech" skills....

OP, I would make reservations. The park we go to in Florida every February is packed. Lots of regular seasonal campers come from Canada, and they aren't allowed in the US this year. Those longtime campers at this park had to cancel their reservations. Those sites were snatched up almost immediately. RV sales were through the roof last year. Lots of families are teleworking and kids attending school remotely. Perfect opportunity to escape the dreary winter and head south for a new breed of snowbirds.

I do wonder how that's going to affect the "Regulars". This park has always been one that is very popular due to decent price and proximity to a great Florida Gulf island. The regulars are guaranteed their spot for the same time period the next year, so once you get a spot there you try not to lose it. Hopefully mgmt does the right thing and treats this year as an oddity and the regular campers don't lose out.

A little tip for reading articles from these "pay wall" sites. Open the article link in your browsers "private window" or "incognito mode". This mode does not store cookies or history. The site will "think" you are a first time visitor and allow you to read the article in almost all cases. I use this trick frequently.

I just traveled to FL from CT from Dec 26th to Jan 9th.

Had no issue, no one turned us away, no check points. We stayed in Pohick Bay, near Alexandria VA and Fort McAllister State Park, GA on the way down. FL was great, some of the places we went to had no one wearing masks, was so nice!

Looks like mod already cleaned some stuff up. I was coming back to delete my comments anyways. Moral of the story, I will obey whatever local laws and whatever requests private businesses make. I hope everyone stays safe and, if you want a vaccine, you're able to get it ASAP.

Even with mods help, haven’t heard back from OP....
Never understood starting a conversation or asking a question then going silent.
In real life or in the webs.

Nah. This thread pooped the sheets long ago. I don't blame the OP. For walking away. He's got a trip to plan while the rest of us just yell at each other.
