Will your next USA RV trip be to a destination east or west of the Mississippi River?

50

Where are you headed next with your RV? Maybe “Down Maine” for some lobster or to the South for some fresh catfish? Or maybe you’re headed out West to explore Utah’s gorgeous Red Rock Country or search for a wild jackalope in Wyoming.

Or are you headed up to the Northwest, to visit a Cascade National Park, maybe hike up the side of magnificent Mount Rainer, or visit the country’s only temperate rain forest in Olympic National Park (it gets 144 inches of rain a year on average)? You have never seen moss like you’ll see there!

Or are you simply driving up the highway a bit to your favorite Forest Service or State Park campground?

So, the question is, when you head out on your next RV trip where will you likely go?

Curious minds want to know. Remember, the poll could take a few moments to load if you’re on a slow internet connection. So stand by there, partner!

I plan on staying in my home state of Arizona this summer. Up in northern Arizona in a cool elevation. I prefer the Northwestern part of the U.S. when traveling. I have been fulltiming for the past 7 years.

I really wanted to go east this year and camp in places where my genealogy takes me. But those darn governors in the NE refuse to open their states to campers without a 14 day quarantine. They are going to kill their own tourist business and not be any better off for it. Maine and VT are 2 big offenders.

Not going too far this year, due to the delay in leaving. Leaving Texas to go to mountains of New Mexico for cool Temps! Not too much touring!

Our original plans were to head east to Western NY to see our son and his family. They decided to come to KS instead. Now, we have decided to spend the summer/ fall visiting our 4 state area of KS (our home state), MO, AR, OK. We’ve been wanting to do this and now is the time. We belong to local Escapees and Heartland
Clubs and will attend all of their rallies as well.

Actually after our trip west to Colorado Utah and Arizona we are staying close to home this summer because of my mothers death. We were suppose to go to Lake Michigan but I guess plans changed. Heading to a campground for the 4th.

We live near Seattle and, as long as the coronavirus sticks around, we don’t plan to venture far from home. We’ll take shorter trips to areas that are not major tourist spots and may also stay home next winter and not follow the snowbirds to Arizona. Northwest winters really aren’t that bad.

I will be spending my travel budget, this year, in states that never shut down their economy. Michigan and Minnesota, WERE on my summer itinerary. Not this year.

WE have already cancelled a planned spring trip to AK. A replacement trip would have been PCH and US 101 up the pacific coast from San Diego to Seattle. Then I heard there were parts of 101 and PCH that had been damaged from weather and natural disasters in spots and are not yet repaired. So now we turn to a trip thru the Southwest and Gulf South, stopping in my home city of New Orleans and heading to the FL Panhandle. Still checking local pandemic regs and weather (not very nice in the Gulf South right now (Cristobol – tropical storm). New Orleans and the Panhandle is our choice after we finish verifying conditions and reservations. Off season in Fl, hope it’s not too crowded…

After almost six months in AZ, we’re finally pointed toward the eastern mid-south. Trading scorpions for bears! As fulltimers, we find ourselves contemplating a homebase. Given the potential of future shutdowns, closures, cancellations, curfews, stay-away zones, and other threats, it might be nice to have a permanent place where we can at least be free and secure on our own land when the need arises. As we see on the news thousands of folks out of their residences now, it’s apparently and suddenly okay for us to (carefully) travel again.

We were planning a trip back East for the summer but cancelled due to uncertainty over this virus. As a small consolation we are planning to visit Sequoia – Kings Canyon NP in September.

Since we live near Seattle, it’s almost ALWAYS west of the Mighty Mississippi. Our rig has been east of it twice. Once during a trip for a funeral, when we drove across a bridge into Tennessee, took the first exit and returned to Arkansas, just so I could say we’ve been on the east side.
A few years later, we took a 25 day trip to two NASCAR races in Kansas City and Talladega, and spent a week roaming Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee, before driving across Mississippi to Talladega, and eventually to Pensacola, Florida for a few days before heading home through Louisiana and Arkansas. 24 States in 25 days and over 6000 miles – and my wife and I didn’t kill each other!

I’m a snowbirds in AZ. There is so much to see out there. We had planned to do so much sightseeing last fall/ winter and then came covid 19. Put a rapid stop to that with all the campsights closed.
Well try again this fall.

You should have a question Not traveling in the USA.
At the moment we are not allowed to cross the boarder.

Taking a look at a nighttime satellite photo of America gives a clear idea why boondocking in the west is the best, IMO.

Living in Virginia on a limited income, and with children in Florida and Vermont, we don’t get west of the Mississippi very often (though we have lots of relatives there, too). Right now, with Covid, we probably won’t be going very far this year. But we do have our eyes on another west coast trip soon.

I live in the west, California to be specific and cannot wait to travel east of the Mississippi to get a break from west coast politics, over-regulation, high prices, terrible roads that I pay gas taxes to fix, a state park system that cancels reservations 5 days before your visit, fees on my cell phone bill to fund free phones for homeless, taxes to pay medical and school for illegal immigrants, and so on. Sorry to vent.

Last time I lived in a place with the Libertarian lifestyle you seem to be yearning for, the Taliban was dropping mortars on me.

Agreed. I have family in California & I honestly don’t know how you all do it. Such a beautiful state, too……but just ruined by the liberalism that rules. Enjoy your vacation.
