We're vaccinated and mask up when near others because FL is seeing a big resurgence. Just had two grandkids get it after starting school (we were exposed to one of them) and none of us got it. I suggest going forth and living life, whilst taking reasonable precautions.

Very, very true Mike.

Unfortunately, many folks want black & white. Greatly reduced to them is no protection at all, yet they wear tin foil hats believing it will keep the sky from falling on them.

Vax, no vax... mask, no mask... social distance, don't social distance...everyone has an opinion. I try to look through the BS by reading and listening to those who have devoted their entire lives to providing good medical advice.

It amazes me the amount of folks that will come here asking for advice from a bunch of R/V users and rush out and do whatever that advice is but can't seem to listen to actual doctors and scientists when it comes to COVID.

Nonetheless, while I may not agree, I respect their decisions and I'll continue to try to protect myself and others, best as I can.

To the OP: As someone who nearly died from COVID early on, and has since gotten vax, I'm sure your concerns are for your young children who can't get vax yet. I have concerns about possible transmission to my sick and elderly parents who I have to care for. I addressed that by being tested yesterday after attending the crowded Goshen Indiana FROG rally last week, before I go over their house again.


If you are outside/in your own camper, don't sweat it. I'm still avoiding steamy bath houses that have high traffic, thankfully RV's have their own facilities. If you find yourself in a crowded outdoor area, you can throw masks on. Although unless everyone else is masked up, I'm not sure how beneficial this is, as the masks are more intended to help protect 'the other guy'. I still wear it in public indoor areas like grocery stores though.

No. Anything other than an N95 mask doesn't do a good job of stopping airborne aerosols. The crappy little masks everyone wears stop very large droplets which are the droplets that don't suspend in air very long (least dangerous) do very little to stop small airborne particles. We test masks at work...no-one passed an aerosol test without an N95.

The OP wanted info regarding a proposed trip on Memorial Day weekend which was in May. Therefore, most of the recent posts are off topic. Yes, I know… members want to discuss any topic beyond the intent of the thread.

X2

I thought the same thing when I was reading the thread and then read your refreshing comment. A months old thread was brought alive only to morph into a covid conversation.

Think of your fellow citizens and not just your "personal freedom". Smokies are nice but we won't be risking our vaccinated lives by associating in mass crowds etc with those who could care less.
...interesting: "inept just like so many others here in the south." Can't imagine the horrors of living or camping in the midst of "ineptness".
