KOA is way pricey compare too most I hope they don’t raise there site more it would be sad as I do see a lot of stuff going up ; the gouging is getting out of hand. A observation camera I was going too buy from amazon went up $90.00 . Gas that is !.95 at Costco is 50 cent cheaper then any of the other station in town.

First of All – Thank you Chuck for everything that you do and keeping us RVers informed of so many things. I’m sorry to hear about your friends – sending prayers.
I am a traveling nurse on assignment in Seattle prior to and at this moment with this dangerous virus running wild. I would definitely advise to stay away from the Seattle area at this time. Even with the supposed state knockdown (with 14 pages of essential workers allowed to work – Really!!!), there are still a lot of people here not taking this virus seriously. While going to and from work – there are a lot of people out and about. A lot of college kids running around town, on the streets, in the parks, etc. Where I’m working, as of 3/27 – we have 3 staff member and 15 patients confirmed; and 3 patients have died just last week.
Unfortunately, until this virus hits closer to home for millions of people – then the virus will keep spreading and killing. I’ve shed more tears in the last 2 weeks than I have in 5 years – I’m not a crier. Be up front and close to the people and the virus, not enough PPE that we need & will be running out completely – within the month – My bigger fear is getting this virus myself & never making it back to home-base to see my daughter and grandsons. What if I get this virus, laid up in my RV and if I die there – how long will it be before someone finds my body???
But can’t live with the what ifs!!! I Get up everyday praying for a good day and for the strength to get through, to maintain my health so that I can continue to care for those who need me. My Pray for quick guidance in finding a cure. I my that now and when this is All over that we as healthcare givers can find peace and rest and sanctuary for us to regain and recoup our mental and physical well-being.
U.S.A. needs to follow China with having a 100% mandatory Nationwide Lock-down of everything except healthcare, law enforcement, EMT, fire depts.

Everyone Needs to Realize that this virus is REAL and Dangerous.

Everyone – Stay where you are, Stay Safe, and Avoid others.

Some mention of TRUCKERs” here – YAAA! – lets hear it for the men and women working their tails off to get the next round of TP and hand sanitizer and everything else we need, to the shelves on time. Never have I thought more of how important these folks are in our daily lives.

I am frustrated by the flood of news and information coming my way this past week. Most of it about the pandemic — how to deal with it. It’s daunting sitting here now searching for answers. If only we could put things in perspective.

So far in 2020 nearly 30,000 people globally have lost their lives to COVID-19. This is truly a health tragedy beyond comprehension. Thankfully our elected officials stepped in with their well thought out actions. Surely their actions will make things better. Thus far in 2020 over 300,000 people globally have lost their lives to motor vehicle accidents. Another 300,000 deaths are projected in the second quarter of 2020, and another 300,000 in the third quarter of 2020, and another 300,000 in the fourth quarter of 2020, etc, etc,….Hopefully those same elected officials will step in and ban the use of motor vehicles. We must stop the carnage.

You’re right we should just do nothing about either one of these deadly issues.

I suggest we focus on the more deadly of the two issues.

A very heartfelt video from KOA Pres. Toby O’Rourke, I hope when this is over she remembers it’s RVers that were keeping KOAs afloat, not “glamping” cabins. Might be it’s time to re-evaluate that business model.

Folks I am getting this from HSUSA and ASPCA. NO your furry friends cannot give you the wuhan unless you have a caged bat or snake and plan to eat it. Or not.

Chuck, you spoke above what I believe is the best way to deal with this new temporary Reality: Make the best of what you DO have, but have your Plan B AND Plan C in place and ready. Don’t RV’ers just live by that code already anyway? Of course. Everybody’s day changes. Just be ready with your “what-if” solutions if you think theyre coming into play.

As for shortages, our truckers are doing the best they can to restock our stores. I read the piece the other day by the trucker about what he was witnessing at his fuel stops … greed and hoarding of common products by people who don’t live on the road. Shame on them! RV’ers *can* stay put as much as possible, even boondocking when necessary….. trucks on the other hand HAVE TO get through and keep going…FOR US. Leave the open road and their required stop places for them to do their jobs….FOR US.

Stay safe, everyone. This will [hopefully, prayerfully!] be in our rearviews soon and we can continue our journeys and adventures.

And Chuck and Gail… I am so very sorry for the loss you’re feeling from so far away. At this point, we’ve been untouched by this, so I can only imagine.

Peace.

Once our weather gets better here in Wisconsin I can rake leaves. Where we take our leaves to the compost site is shut down because if the virus.

So compost them yourselves. Or are you a “city person”?

I live in the country. Our soil is too sandy too have a garden. I have a burning permit and can burn the leaves.

I am still working at a lumber mill. 4 ten hour days. Half days on Friday. I was told yesterday March 27th no one wants oak or ash lumber. But companies want soft maple. I’m assuming if we were not cutting soft maple I would be laid off. Here in Wisconsin our weather is cool, and it is raining on weekends. I would like too be home with my wife because she is off from a school district. Some days my wife brings home our 2 grandsons.
Sorry to hear about your friends chuck. I know this virus is bad and i’m afraid after this virus is done a lot of people will not have jobs to go back to and a lot of stores will be out of business. In Wisconsin walgreen, Walmart, menards along with some companies got in trouble for price gouging.
