Reading Nanci’s editorial is cause to stop and give thanks for all that we have and for those who gave it to us. However, the emphasis on the current pandemic is partial misplaced. Yes, it is terrible disease and I too am looking forward to a vaccine to help prevent it. The thing I take issue with is the constant erroneous reporting of the number of deaths. The often stated so called fact that “hundreds of thousands” have died from Covid-19 is untrue! What is true is that this huge number people died WITH the disease but according the CDC, NOT FROM the disease. The CDC reports the death rate from Covid-19 is around .02-.03 percent. The vast majority of these deaths are because of
other health issues, i.e., heart disease, diabetes, etc., even car accidents and yes gun shot wounds.
I have had family members contract Covid-19 so I am aware of how serious it is. I respect it but I will not live in fear of it even though at 84 years old I am in the “most at risk” category.

Well said Mr, Fisher. Common sense has disappeared in the world these days.

Are you telling me that first you delay the release of the newsletter to be “non-members” to “twist” an arm or two. Understandable.
And now you’re ditching the Tire column to “non-members”. I guess the previous twist wasn’t hard enough. What’s next? Especially since the tire column is a SAFETY issue. Kind of low if you ask me.

I thought the same thing! I was going to read about the tires, but found out it was a members only section. Just went to my email to unsubscribe. Really enjoyed this newsletter when it first started, but now if you don’t agree with something you’re a troublemaker.

I agree, I sold my last motorhome because I no longer felt comfortable driving it any longer but I used to really enjoy this publication every Saturday morning, even after the motorhome was gone.
Recently though I’ve felt the content has deteriorated.

It’s not just the tire columns they’ve withheld for “members only” it is several articles they are holding back. The JAM (just ask Mike) are articles on RV electrical safety which are now, for “MEMBERS ONLY” Here’s the best part, their reasoning behind these “changes” are due to some “mean spirited comments” about an interracial article done several weeks ago. What a farce, I mean really this is a script you would expect to see from Saul Goodman in Better Call Saul……..good riddens RV Travel, lost another faithful reader

Hmmm. I thought I was a member. I thought there was a glitch with the article. Who knows?

Hi, Dale. I just checked the records based on your comment and I don’t see you listed as a donor/member. Did you donate at some point and our records are messed up? If so, please let us know at editor(at)rvtravel.com, or write to me personally at diane(at)rvtravel.com, and we/I will check into this. Have a good night. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com

Thanks, Tom! Emily put that in and I forgot it was from George Carlin – one of my all-time favorite comedians. I’ve added the source. Have a great day, and stay healthy. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com
