As everyone knows the ‘rona has arrived in the United States and that has changed our travel plans quite significantly. We have been in the Yuma/Winterhaven area since January 1st. The plan was to leave at the end of March and head to New Mexico to work on our Airstream and then head north for the summer months.
However, with COVID-19 spreading like wildfire our plans have changed a bit.
California has issued a ‘shelter-in-place’ order and we are (technically) in California. We could’ve scooted on over to Arizona since we are 3 miles away but Arizona is on lockdown also. It’s definitely a strange place we are all in – it’s almost apocalyptic! (I’m kidding) 😉 But it sure is a ‘new normal’ for us. Especially since we are considered ‘tourists’ in the state of California. Our domicile is in Florida – we are considered Florida residents.
So wish us luck that we don’t get the boot since we aren’t from the area.
OUR CURRENT PLANS
Since we do not have a ‘home’ to go back to we decided to just stay put at our current RV park in Winterhaven, CA. This park usually closes April 1st but due to the current ‘rona situation, they let us stay until the end of April.
We only plan on staying until April 15 though. Then hopefully resume our travel plans and head over to New Mexico to put the shell back on our Airstream frame.
