    I want this stuff over as badly as everyone else however and I surely do not want to infect anyone else or get infected by someone who is unwittingly carrying the virus.
    I can wait for the go ahead, this virus is a killer and I am too young to die or go thru the pain of not being able to breath and then dying while gasping for air. This is my opinion of course.

    We hope to be headed out in mid may after our state closed dated ends 5/16. I figure if I wear gloves and a mask to check in, wear gloves to hook up and dump. We will NOT will use the public restrooms and showers. We are thinking doing camping this way our risk is much lower then going to the store.

    At the very least i would use the gloves to dump! Even after its over! Lol.
    Yea, i will probably do the same, or at least use a antibacterial wipes or something. I would think most check ins will be remotely. So , by phone and or website. I really think a lot of things will change to less personal interaction in the futue.

    Yep alway use gloves to dump.

    Our state I think is still going to have you check in and get your car pass and site marker, also have you verify your old enough to get discounts.

    States aren’t even providing drinking water potable. In PA know of 4 DCNR wells that provide drinking water for leased cabins in Pike County. Those DCNR well pumps are closed due to DCNR shutdown. Same wells and testing is shutdown at PA state wide.

    Our problem is that we don't have a bathroom in the pup, so we rely on the CG bathouse. We can deal with not taking a shower over the weekend, but a bathroom is a must!

    As of yesterday my state has announced it's allowing private campgrounds to reopen this Friday. (State Parks are not permitted to reopen until at least 15th of May.) We called a local private campground that's owned by the RV dealership where we bought our PUP (10 minutes away) and they confirmed they are opening and the campground is taking reservation starting this Friday, but that they are not allowed to open restrooms until further notice. In all honesty, I'm anticipating that when the State Park campgrounds reopen on the 15th of May that they announce they aren't opening restrooms/bath houses for a few weeks. Luckily for us we have a bathroom, so we won't be affected but I know quite a few others that aren't in the same situation.

    Check Walmart online, pal from Atlanta got the double pack of 30 oz (?) a week or so ago sent to 'em in 2 days, but she happened to catch em when they had em...you can click on stuff & if it's not in stock, they'll notify you when it is, crap shoot really...I got 24 rolls of paper towels from Amazon last week; took 3 weeks to get em & only wanted a pack of 6, but that's all they had...we'll share em w/ family & neighbors...
    ***IF you have or can find aloe vera gel, you can make sanitizer w/ that & rubbing alcohol, or Everclear; making some up soon...

    Got a porta-potty a few years ago, and never used it. Looks like camping at State Parks, it will get used. They've even locked vault toilets around here.

    No cancellation on Memorial Weekend group camp at a State Park. But no word on things restarting. Still in "meet the metrics mode" which the Governor will need to back off from ('cause the metrics will never be met) or removal of his power to declare "state of emergency" and rights restored.

    I have small hope for Memorial Weekend camping. Sad to see NC state government blocking people from getting out into nature.
