RV Life in a Coronavirus World: “Finding ways to give back”


CAVEAT: Comments, posts and/or tips in our newsletters are those of the authors and may not reflect the views of RVtravel.com or its staff.

EDITOR’S NOTE: We have asked RVtravel.com readers to tell us how they are adapting to life these days. Here is one story:

“These are trying times we all are experiencing. But, my wife and I are doing our part to help our community through it. First, we converted our Little Free Library into a food pantry for anyone who needs extra supplies. Second, my wife, Twyla, a quilter, is making masks for friends and family members to wear at home or whenever they need to go out for supplies.

“Me, I keep busy with my woodworking projects. In fact, I made levelers just the other day for our RV that sits on a slant in our driveway in case we have to use it as a quarantine room if one of us should become ill. Fortunately, we are doing fine for now. With the closure of our fitness center, we make sure we walk every day around our neighborhood and it is nice to see that many of our neighbors are doing the same thing.”

Good job you two! I could use some of those nice hand made leveling blocks as well. Keep hanging in there- better times are ahead.

I enjoy walking the neighborhood, the sidewalks are never crowded, no dawn to dusk curfew, and families playing in their yards. I feel sorry for those living in high rises and apartments.
