Well, we don't know yet. The cover is still on the TT for now. Our state parks aren't open yet up here, so the 4 reservations we have so far are up in the air. If the Gov decides to leave them closed, they go away. We're keeping our fingers crossed.

Beginning of March, headed out on my post-retirement 9 week trip, escaping the cold north for the southwest. After 3 weeks, reservations started being cancelled, parks closing, things got crazy, we headed home and rewinterized. Itching to get back out, but will wait until it's warmer here and we can go fairly local, shorter trips, more dry camping.

We have camped 4 days this year. Usually about 25- 30 by now. We had reservations near Myrtle Beach at a private CG in Mid April to attend my grandson's wedding but they have downsized it and given us old folk the option to watch it live streaming. We cancelled and took it.

We are taking this thing seriously. No reservations until late May and they are iffy at this point.

Well I am very anxious to take out our Brand new motorhome out. Was in storage a few weeks ago and scheduled for a little work but got cancelled with the stay at home. Now just getting it ready for the first voyage. Which is scheduled in first week of June to Mount Rushmore if we can???? Now hopefully we can get it out for maiden voyage before June some place close. If not we will camp overnight in the drive and check a few things out.

We had a week in southern Utah planned for last week. That got cancelled mid-March when they closed down the animal sanctuary we were staying at and volunteering for the week. Staff and local volunteers only at the moment. We do have reservations there again in late June and early August and so far they haven't been cancelled so I'm holding them for now. No need to rush anything at this point. They do need the help when it can get there, so keeping an eye out for when it looks like we could make the trip.

Also have plans for a Grand Teton/Yellowstone trip in late September. No reservations for that one so it's just wait and see where things end up and make the best of it. In the meantime, I keep finding mods for the trailer to keep me busy and spend some time in it.

A couple of us on JOF have started using our trailers as our home offices while we are working from home. Even though we haven't been able to get out camping, we have been spending Monday through Friday in ours during work hours. It has been working out great. Hot breakfast and lunch, the TV or radio on when we aren't in online meetings. It was nice this afternoon and we even rolled out the awning and had office hours outside.

Camping, no. But definitely getting to spend some quality time with the Jayco. And honestly, it has made this transition to working from home quite nice.

We've had one reservation (May 1) canceled. We have reservations for Memorial Day and week of July 4 at a COE park on the calendar. We'll see what happens with those.

The good news is Kansas State Parks remain open, so -- provided they don't change their mind in the next 48 hours -- we're going to head out on Sunday for the week. Weather is supposed to be in the 70s and I've heard the crappie are starting to come to the shallow water to spawn. We'll see.

We got one weekend trip in just as this stuff was starting. Now most campgrounds around us is closed. Still have reservations in May and June that haven't cancelled yet but I bet the one May will be before this stuff is over. We'll make the best out of it and if nothing else we'll pull ours out and do a campout on our own property.

The DW and I took the new to us Precept up to Tennessee in February.
Cold, wet, but the RV worked well.

Down to Fort Myers for a few days in mid March before things got pretty nuts.
Parked in the yard here in central Florida since waiting for things to settle out again.
Whenever that may be ?

If football is canceled then this country will be in a panic. No way I'm packing in a stadium with 80,000 people. I just hope to be able to tow my camper to private land and back, for now.

We are currently camping for a long weekend at a State Park close to us. We’re fortunate that the rules allow for camping and boating. It’s the first time we have had the camper out this year. Everyone in the campground is friendly yet observing the distancing and gathering rules. Our prayer is for all of our fellow campers to stay healthy and return to our nations normal quickly.

I received a call from our campground yesterday asking if we were coming in 2 weeks. I said YES and they said that the showers and playground would be closed but everything else will go on as normal. I am glad for some normality in this time.

2X with jaycoMLOK. Raining like crazy here 2 days ago. The wife and I decided to warm up the RV, which is in the driveway, take our books, 2 dogs and hang out in the RV all day. Watched a little OTA tv too. Just needed a change of walls. We had a ball. Silly by fun. We usually head down to Galloway NJ for Easter week to visit my brother for our first trip of the season, but that had to be cancelled. Its OK though. My wife won't be returning to work until next September so when these campgrounds start to open up, we are out of here on an extended-extended trip west.

We averaged 30 nights per year this last two years. We are down significantly this year.

One person in our house had surgery after Christmas and has been recovering and couldn't go anywhere until now. I had reservations for a week during this month, but we cancelled due to the corona.

We have reservations for one week late in June and another week in mid-July, and we're hoping this thing gets under control so we can go.
