After over 50 years of camping/rving, I recently sold the Ram truck and Wolfcreek camper. After moving to the PNW 3 years ago, I wasn't getting the use of it that I had hoped for. The Pandemic and wild fire restrictions over the past 3 years, dampened the opportunities and desire to get out and go. Maybe age and health figures in there too. I got good prices on both of them, so I'm still a happy camper. You all take care and be safe.

Best of wishes and luck on your future adventures!

The pandemic surely put 'snake oil' in many of our travel plans. Between most places being closed to once they opened being booked solid by all the new folks trying the RV camping adventures. (sigh)

I'll be the first to admit that there will come a day when climbing up the stairs into the camper (and into the bed) will be to much of my aging knees and then I'll seriously look at motor homes.

Happy trails!

We actually enjoyed less crowds the first half of the pandemic but that increased once people started suffering cabin fever. Now it has flattened out and we are looking forward to off season camping with less crowds.

Fifty years is a good run. I'm feeling like I'm close to retiring from the RV life, too. [emoticon]

Yeah 2020 and 2021 were great! Save for gettin the Covid on New Years Eve, ruined a good night of drinking. The Dang fast food joints that still aren’t all back to dine in. Oh and the horrible aftermath of supply chain and unchecked inflation.
And the worst part, the kids education went bad for 2 years….
But from a day to day standpoint…
NO traffic in Seattle for months. And less traffic for a good year plus. Made driving to work very pleasant. Like when it snows here….lol.
No issues finding campsites and traveling was great with so many people locking themselves up at home afraid to go breathe good clean air.
Got a little break from kids sports which made some free time for about the first 6 months of the pandemic. Actually got a few projects done and a couple more started.
Older son got out of taking college entrance exams. He was happy bout that!
Airports were not crowded nor were flights. And flights were cheap. Made air travel awesome for about a year.

I wish more people were still staying at home, honestly. Like the good ole days in 2020!

The meaning of "close" is still TBD. [emoticon]
