    Please educate yourselves about what covid really is. Don't expect me to be like you and wear a mask. People just follow whatever the media says without questioning it. This is why places are still closed and we're still wearing masks. Please people learn the real facts not what they're pushing on us

    Yeah kinda like the grocery stores that have the soup bar and chicken wings where you get your own, I won't touch either I've seen way to many "samples" with the same spoon.

    Hmmm, so you're calling everyone sheep but they're supposed to believe and follow you? Interesting concept.

    Kind of mind boggling that someone concerned/paranoid about getting covid is out traveling the country in a RV... No?

    Rv sales have went through the roof since Covid hit. More people then ever are taking family trips in RVs so they can avoid other people in hotels and restaurants.

    I still think it's fascinating that since truck stops and truck drivers are such outstanding examples of cleanliness, we all roam the four corners of the country, get together randomly at random locations coming from every which direction 500 miles apart, then go our separate ways, and nobody is sick. Certainly no one dying.

    How is this possible?

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that there may be an agenda.

    Totally off topic here, but: A friend of mine that runs catle said they used to have em run the whole range. He kept the salt lick down by the pond, and fed near the highway almost a mile away. But more recently the cattlemen had gotten together and noticed less wear and tear on things and a lower feed bill if they just bring the feed and salt lick to where the cattle bed down. I dunno if he's on to something or not.

    Back on topic: Out running the roads I noticed air pollution is way down and traffic is light. I'm thinking it's a good time to be in trucking.

    In other news there seems to be some new variants of this Covid thing breaking out. Certainly the more cautious types may want to just stick around the house, just to be safe I guess. Never can be too carefull.

    Exactly. If you're hanging around the truckstop like an "80s teen at the 80s mall", it's time to get back to work. Get your bedtime in, fuel, grab a quick snackage, and GET GONE.
