Are you spending more time online now than before the Pandemic?

Many of us are spending a lot more time at home, or “at home” in our RVs. We’re not exploring the countryside as much as we would have been without the nasty germ that has taken many lives and turned our economy upside down.

The staff is spending a lot more time at home or in their RVs. We are all online more than a year ago, by a long shot.

What about you? Are you spending more time on the Internet these days than back in the good ol’ days before the deadly invisible coronavirus awaited at every turn?

Curious RVer minds would like to know. But remember, it can take a few moments for the poll to load. . . so stand by. It will be along shortly, and worth the wait!

This survey is just for fun. No personal information is gathered. We don’t even know who voted, where they’re from … nothing.

Here’s a poll that you will find interesting
Last October we asked readers “Do you believe an economic recession is coming within a year?” How good do you think they were at predicting the future? Find out.

Michigan has a lot shut down so there is no where to go. No movies, no plays, no theater no concerts no nothing. We live in hell here. I hate it. So I stay home. Nothing to do so I am on line just surfing. Sure I could clean house but why when no one comes over. Soon as I retire I am outta this horrible state.

Because of Covid I am staying at home. Because of the heat here in NV I am staying in. I could work on finishing the unpacking but….why?

Staying away from Facebook, IG and the news as much as possible and enjoying the outdoors a lot more!

Most online time is wasted time. A fast run through email and trash the vast majority so it never hits the inbox again. I’m tired of all the Covid and mask crap, thankfully SC is not completely nuts like NC. The majority of my online time now is chasing ammunition availability.

In the beginning, I was online all the time because I had nothing else to do and it was the only way I could “see” my friends.

Now, I remember that the internet is a cesspool, and I’ve moved on to other things. I check every morning to make sure the world is still standing, then go on with my life.

As I try to avoid stores as much as possible during the pandemic I find myself shopping online more. So much easier to get online, shop, have it delivered and not leave the house/RV.

Retired officially in October and set about planning our RV trips for 2020. The first was a trip to the Texas Gulf and capped with a visit to the Houston RV Show.
that was postponed due to hospital bills that needed to be paid first. Our next trip, and I say our Grand Trip, was a fifteen state tour of the northwest which included two graduations for our Grand daughters, Denver CO and Juneau AK. With plans made, airline tickets to AK bought and some reservations made we were set. Only to face closures and cancellations. We have been on some short trips around AR but nothing big. Much time has been put on the internet with plans and other things. Our final trip is still planned going to the Upper Peninsula in Sept and Oct. We are still waiting for this one. With COVID plans change and yes, I have spent more time on the internet, but with little accomplishment.

Pretty much anytime I’m not outside working on something from my long-term to-do list, I’m either on the laptop or playing Sudoku on my phone. During this pandemic though, my major time consumer is working on my geneaology. It had been 30 years since I’d done anything so everything is now being digitized and the net is adding hundreds of names to my lists.
