I received notification that my reservations in Utah for this coming week (Deadhorse Point State Park and an RV campground in Moab) were canceled due to the virus.

I'm disappointed, but I understand the underlying logic. Disease spreads and people die. People stay home, the disease spreads more slowly, fewer people die.

I'm disappointed, but I'm staying home. It's the right thing to do right now.

Hoping July won't be canceled

You did the right thing.

Our annual camping trip to a small state campground in the Adirondacks is booked for the middle of July, and is super special to us, as our 2.5 year old twin granddaughters and our daughter and son in law from CA are coming. I've got three sites reserved. I'm pretty sure it's not going to happen, but I'm not canceling. If NY State closes our campgrounds, they will cancel and refund. It will be our first miss in 22 years, but our lives and the lives of other campers are more important.

We are taking the wait-and see approach; not prematurely canceling anything unless we are notified that we have to. We are self-sufficient and camp alone anyhow. We don't party when we're camping so we aren't touching anyone else's stuff and nobody is touching our stuff. If we have to cancel, we will, but we will not succumb to panic and hysteria, nor will we be bullied into believing we are irresponsible in our decision. There are plenty of other folks who agree, so I'm not going to worry unnecessarily weather or not I'm doing the right thing. I am 69 and my wife is 70 and we aren't worried about it at all. We are ready to go.

Panic is one thing and there is certainly some of that going on but hysteria?

I haven't seen any hysteria (current definition as the meaning has morphed some) but I can see how 6000 people dying in the last ten days, using refrigerated trucks and arenas to store the dead would cause a great deal of fear? (Italy) Irrational fear?

We are locked in the house as told by a doctor when the wife showed symptoms...Yep, we have suspended all travel. We had a 2 week trip planned at the end next month, that's canceled. The 2 week trip in late summer hasn't been canceled yet but given the rate things are happening I'm willing to bet this will be too.

Think of it this way, you are putting overworked first responders at risk should something happen to you.

Good to be self sufficient, but as one example you will consume fuel that needs to be replaced and that means stopping to replenish which will expose you to transmission to the virus at the pumps

I haven't seen any hysteria

The word was used in the context of a figure of speech, and not the literal vernacular. Although I did see a woman at a local large grocery store literally running through the isles with her face all bundled up like it was 10 below. This may have triggered my usage of the word.

But you have a reason to be more concerned about it now. I hope your wife has a prompt recovery. What you are doing is not unreasonable, and canceling your camping plans for the immediate future is certainly warranted. I probably would do the same. We are both healthy at the present time, so I am not going to cancel plans for July and September based on speculation alone. We will 'wait-and-see'.

We were planning a month long trip starting the last part of April. We've postponed that. What an agonizing decision that has been. The wife and I have not taken a vacation in many years due to all kinds of events happening in our lives. We are now finally free to travel and this blows it up big time. However the risk right now just ain't worth it. You all be safe.

Yes, of course, and, I feel for all of you that are full-timers, or trying to get home or are stuck somewhere. I see that many campgrounds are full of people that are trying to remain in place. Those places should be as safe as homes in neighborhoods, if you follow the guidelines. I was speaking of people that just want to travel, without regarding the safety of themselves or others. Here, in Florida, we are being flooded with people from New York, New Jersey, and other places that are in total shutdown. Our governor will require people coming in on planes to go into mandatory quarantine. However, there is nothing stopping people from coming in in vehicles. Pretty scary for those that reside here and are doing everything we can to stop the spread of the virus.

Was something on the news here today. I-95 enters Florida in Nassau County. The Nassau county sheriffs office stated they are putting some deputyís in the welcome station and having patrol cars stop vehicles from New York tri state area.

Exactly. I'm thinking we probably won't see a camp site this year.

I know itís not gonna look like a bride side, but thank your wife for her elbow so you didnít get stuck somewhere on a cruise with a bunch of other sick people. Could you imagine what these people are having to deal with not being able to get off the ship. Hope she gets better quickly. I know what itís like as I myself had two incidents that sidelined me for 9 months last year.

Florida Governor is thinking about keeping travelers driving from the NewYorkCity tri state area out of Florida and same for the State of LA. Something to ponder if you have to go that way home or pass through.

Although we cancelled our April trip, we still have a August reservation at a private campground. We are hoping we can make that trip.

Also, my employer issued a very strongly worded statement concerning unnecessary travel. I interpreted the message to mean that my employment would be in jeopardy if I did any more than travel in my community and to and from work.

I heard that yesterday. They will be looking for license plates from high volume states, will stop them and issue a 14 day quarantine warning.

I saw a really good post on Twitter today that showed a relationship as to how fast a virus can travel across the country based on 2 week study of cell phones and where they traveled to from the beach at Ft. Lauderdale. Not sure if everybody can watch it but here is the link.
