Day 43 - Lake Texoma, TX - TT

I heard last night from what I consider a reliable source, that recreational and other non-essential travel into Canada is blocked for at least the next 30 days. This applies to all non-Canadians. Since we were not even thinking of driving through Canada in the next month or two, it’s not an issue. We are sort of wait-and-see right now.

This is only the second time that we’ve used the tire covers. Since a couple of the tires see full sun during the day, it seemed like a good idea. These are made by MagnaShade and they pack pretty small. If you know how to fold a bicycle tire, you know how to fold these. I have to remember to put them on ass soon as we stop as once the leveling system dumps air pressure from the air bags, there isn’t enough room to get the elastic cords over the tire.

I went to pick up groceries today and there were a lot of empty shelves and signs limiting how many of some items you are allowed. The only items they didn’t have in stock that I had on my list were eggs and dried beans. I dug out the bike and rode down to the boat ramp. It was really windy at the lake but not at our site. So the electric motor got a workout even when going downhill.

Today they closed the campgrounds for camping here in Oregon. Still open for day use, but bathrooms/etc will be closed. Getting tough for folks traveling or living the RV life.

Use care Richard to not get stuck somewhere. When 'normal' was how we lived, you were as mobile and as flexible as could be. Take care, stay well and hopefully you can stay where the sun shines.

Same here, campgrounds have been shut down, and facilities will be generally closed until further notice. Enjoy your freedom as long as you can.

I’ve heard that most state park campgrounds are closing but they are leaving their day use areas open. To me, that seems backwards. Boondocking is still an option and is the definition of social distancing.

We are sort of set for another month and looking for a place to sit for a month after that. Thank you. Well as it is now, we can’t go through Canada...

Here, it seems to be state and some Corp of Engineer campgrounds. Most of the private ones have a lot of permanent and seasonal guests.
