    Fla Parks are still closed for camping, many are open for non-camping. To be safe I made reservations at a park for July, hopefully they will all be open for camping by then, meanwhile I will do some upgrades and cleaning on the unit that I ignored for awhile now.

    in 32 hours(5pm CDT) we will be at our site @ our local county campground in Brown County Wisconsin. We have 4 wonderful nights to look forward too. Mid 70s and relatively calm weather predicted. The campground is operating @ half capacity and not accepting walk-ins, reserved only. The laundry, shower, and flushable toilet facilities will be closed. My truck tailgate already has the wood packed and just need to pack the cooler and the front deck of the PUP and we will be on our way.

    I fell for that line last week. We canceled our reservation then got nary a drop.

    DD and her family are headed to Table Rock (Kimberling City) this weekend. Talked with her last night. They have a pontoon reserved for Sunday and she's worried they may get rained out.

    Not us. We tend to only camp on holiday weekends or weeks when we can be miles from big towns, in less accessible places, which works well; we often use Courtenay's holiday off to add to vacation days for a week of camping. North Rim of Grand Canyon has worked a few times.
    Here in NM, the state parks are not yet open for camping, and they seem to be party city even in the best of times, let alone when people are sick of being shut in. From the reports I've seen of some of the open national forests, where people can camp at large, ill-behaved is an understatement for some. As much as we'd like to get out and explore, that type of atmosphere is not our thing.
    Courtenay will probably hike into the Sandias, he can do that from our house, and has been taking a 5 hours or so hike very other weekend.

    We are. Going to the exact center of nowhere to camp, and then break out the UTV to go even further into nowhere. I'd say it's going to be quiet, but I know the CG is sold out that weekend, and most Alaskans are itching to get out. Used RV sales are through the roof right now, and folks are getting TOP dollar for whatever tows and casts a shadow.

    We are. Not where we originally want to, but we found alternate accommodations.
