So disappointing that the first article is a doom and gloom piece. I’ve had enough of that.

Friday April 24th I had to go to Green Bay, Wisconsin to get a tooth pulled. There’s a truck stop on highway 172 and county road gv. Gas at the citgo station was .99 cents a gallon.

All State Parks, recreation areas, boondocking spots, pull-offs are now open in Alaska. You just can’t get here. Borders are still closed!

I find no current information regarding border closure to AK. Every article is dated over 30 days ago.

We love the stolen RV alerts. No better audience than other RVrs. Hopefully, you have the chance to report successful updates too.

Truck drivers still use CB or similar radios in there trucks. If one driver starts spreading the news about diner trucks at rest stops the news will travel. Plus, get the local news media on it. They love spreading the word. I think this is a great ideal. I have even asked a fuel driver if he needed anything McDonald was next door. We need to all help get through this pandemic.

Wow… Your reporting seems to dip into the lows of many other venues these days.
Living in JEFFERSON COUNTY OREGON for 33 years, I have never found Mount Sherman as you referenced in the current article.
Now for some quality news… Where’s my National Enquirer?

“Dr. Richard Curtin, , says the RV industry will travel a “long and bumpy road” to recovery. Curtin, who peers intently at the RV economy, says he sees consumers being primarily concerned with staying safe with their health and won’t be itching to spend money on recreation until they feel that aspect of their lives is satisfied. He warned RV builders not to be too quick to restart assembly lines, and urged them to support the RV park industry in slowly reopening RV parks, with social-distancing measures as might be attained by renting out fewer RV sites than are actually available.”
IT’S MY TAKE ON DR. CURTIN THAT HE IS DEAD WRONG. LAST WEEK THE GOV OF UTAH RE OPENED ALL STATE PARKS. YESTERDAY SAND HOLLOW STATE PARK WAS SO OVER CROWDED AND BEYOND CAPACITY THAT THE RANGERS HAD TO CLOSE THE PARK TO ALL BUT WALK IN’S. THE BEACH WAS WALL TO WALL TENTS, POP UP SHADES, BOATS, SWIMMERS AND SUN BATHERS. BOATS AND SKIERS AND SIDE BY SIDES ON THE SAND DUNES. THESE ARE THE SAME PEOPLE THAT DR. CURTIN SAYS ARE THE ONES CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR SAFETY AND HEALTH. HIS THEORY IS BULL. WE WANT OUT. WE WANT TO GET ABOUT AND GET ON WITH OUR LIVES. IN YESTERDAYS COMMENTS ONE LADY SAID THIS CROWD ARE ‘CANARY’S’ LET THEM TEST THE AIR AND DIE BEFORE WE TEST THE AIR… MAYBE SO BUT LIFE IS A GAMBLE AT BEST. I COULD DRIVE TO THE GROCERY STORE TODAY AND BE KILLED IN AN ACCIDENT WITH A DRUNK DRIVER…(Just saying…alchohol consumption is sky high now with the quarantine) BUT THATS THE GAMBLE IM WILLING TO TAKE. HOW MANY OF YOU OUT THERE DIDN’T GET A FLU SHOT? ARN’T YOU GAMBLING THAT YOU WON’T CATCH THE FLU AND DIE…JUST SAYIN.

My wife and I totally agree, we can’t eliminate all constitutional rights, because some wacko panic fear driven flu is trying to stop all life as we know it. Too many studies show that more people of had it without any symptoms and that it’s no dangerous it may be .9% for fatality rate, no greater than the regular flu, let’s get on with our lives RVers!

While I agree with your assessment, im a stickler for the constitution.

You actually cant eliminate ANY constitutional rights, absent an amendment. Now that we have learned from this, let the Govenors run their states as specifically empowered in the 10th amendment (Bill of Rights) of the US Constitution.

While there are those who overstep their bounds, there are those who will surface to correct said wrongs. We shall learn from this, but it is now time to leave it to the states, as the founders intended. Why, BECAUSE THE CONSTITUTION SAYS AS MUCH.

” I COULD DRIVE TO THE GROCERY STORE TODAY AND BE KILLED IN AN ACCIDENT WITH A DRUNK DRIVER…(Just saying…alchohol consumption is sky high now with the quarantine) BUT THATS THE GAMBLE IM WILLING TO TAKE. ”

Most folks would choose to get off the road if they knew a drunk driver were on the road coming their way.

Getting infected is not just about the risk to you, it is about the risk to everyone else each of us comes into contact with. This disease is contagious very often days before infected people realize they are sick, which is why the rate of spread can easily overwhelm local medical resources. All those retirees in St. George, Utah sound like they could be at unnecessary risk due to careless visitors not taking this seriously. I personally do not want to be the one that spreads this virus to anyone else, let alone be the one who gave it to someone who dies.

For those here who care about each other and being informed on all aspects of this disease the following article with it’s models illustrates why social distancing and staying at home works – Google: Why outbreaks like coronavirus spread exponentially, and
how to “flatten the curve”

So you can choose to contribute to the spread of this disease or you can choose to contribute to reduce the spread of this disease.

Possibly a very long time from now. The existing companies will probably have to file for bankruptcy due to long term closures and many lawsuits. Even if they reopen, I can’t image many people would be interested.

The ships aren’t registered in the USA so hopefully no USA taxpayer bailout

I know you can’t believe every article on the internet, but if true, 2021 is already a pretty booked year accordingly.

We had two trips planned for April. Took the 125% credits (including the excursions). It still may be fall before we get back there as we always head to the mountains in the summer.

Some of the cruise lines are going to be in so much legal trouble they will not know what hit them. So much is coming out about how much some of the lines knew they had a problem and kept it quiet. We have always been very picky what lines we cruise on, and that has not changed but we are not in a hurry to go on a cruise, go to Vegas, go to a casino, a sports stadium, a theme park etc etc. To each is own, but we don’t get bored easy and are happy finding new ways to find entertainment.

Tim Walz is governor of MN and the article was about MN. Remove MI and replace MN and the article will be accurate.

The photo of the alligators by the tent made me wonder, who would pitch there tent on the banks of a creek in alligator country?

Likely staged or photocropped. Why would anyone do this in a known gator area? Makes a great story though. How may “likes” and “views” did they get on Facebook? You do know that this is how they drive up viewership so they can stay at home and get advertisers to pay them. Right? That’s why you see so many stupid stunts posted out there. A certain group is trying to earn money without really working…More fake news…
