Thread: Traveling and Covid

    Traveling and Covid

    With Covid concerns, travel or traveling is a concernÖat least for me.
    We are supposed to go to Wisconsin Dells this weekend. Wisconsin is now one of the top 3 covid states. The Governor has reduced business capacity to 25%.

    We are driving, roughly 4 hours, so the traveling part of it is not a concern this time. But since we are there only Friday and Saturday nights, we pretty much canít do anything. Restaurants are going to be tough to hit, attractions are nearly gone/closed for the season or not available because of restrictions. Not really worth an 8 hour drive, but we havenít been out of the house in months. And since we canít get the points back at this time, I guess we are going.

    Now in March, we are booked for New Orleans. That means airports (possible layover), uber, restaurants and whatever New Orleans has to offer. Unless this virus is reduced by then, maybe that trip will be skipped.

    I miss the good old days.

    We've been home since March. Really want to go somewhere, but for now, still staying home.

    We are canceling our trip. Or, rather, we are just not going. We are loosing the points, so not even bothering to cancel.
    Wisconsin set a new state record today. Nope, not worth it.
    We are having wonderful fall weather, we will stay home and it will be ribs, cigar and scotch to close out the patio season and I don't feel bad about not going on a trip.

    Well at least it was your choice. Our May trip to Maine was prohibited and in retrospect would have been safer than our July trip to NH.

    This year I cancelled Grand Cayman, Myrtle Beach, Las Vegas and Newport RI. We were, like you Don, going to go for 2 nights. But then NY put RI on the 14 day quarantine list. If I went, I would have to stay out of work for 2 weeks...ugh...
    Next year's plans are for Grand Cayman (Feb), Las Vegas (end of March), Myrtle Beach (July) and Atlanta in September. I really hope to get to at least some of them.

    We used our week on the OBX in July. Restaurants and most things were open. The virus really did not slow things down very much. I have done some travel by car for personal or business matters but no other vacation time. I cancelled a personal trip to Europe due to the virus. A job I was recruited for in Europe has had interviews postponed for months now due to the virus and the fact that the employers activities are very restricted due to the virus.

    When in July Frank?? Thinking of going for Kelli's birthday. Week of July 14th. I may not be able to go depending on the heat. I used to be a lifeguard and the hotter it was the better I liked it. Now I can't breathe in the heat. I went to Myrtle Beach last July. Couldn't make it to the beach but did do the pool. Went to Cashiers/ Foxrun in August just to use up Kelli's vacation. Very laid back. Going to Pigeon Forge in 2 weeks to see the Halloween decorations at Dollywood. Spending 2 nights at Dream More then going to a ts for a week. Nothing planned firm for next year. Hope you and family are doing well.
