My Internet hasn't been working as fast as it normally does for the last three or four days, and sometimes all the buffering makes it hard to watch a video. I don't exactly know what's causing it but I'm guessing it may have something to do with so many people self isolating and having nothing better to do than play on the Internet, I know the Internet is pretty much the high point of my life right now.
Everything at La Posa North LTVA is pretty quiet without much of anything going on. Normally there's people walking up and down the roads, but now I seldom see anyone walking on the roads. I used to see RVs coming and going throughout the LTVA, now hardly anything moves, I would say 98% of the RVs around me are the same ones that were here when I got here. But I think the biggest change is how there's no groups of people standing around talking, or sitting in lawn chairs in the middle of a bunch of trailers. So it would be pretty accurate to say I seldom see another person.
Fortunately for a loner like me the lack of people is fairly easy to deal with. But I do feel for the more outgoing, gregarious folks that are having to suffer through this lack of companionship, and I think most RVers would fall into that category. I believe were all going to be changed by this situation were in, maybe a little maybe a lot, but changed one way or another.
I'm staying in touch with my family in Denver and so far everybody's fine. I should probably say their staying in touch with me because I seldom call anyone. Fortunately my family realizes I'm like that and calls me all the time.
Strangely enough the worst part of Colorado for the sickness is in the high country where few people live. Apparently a guy came from Italy to Colorado with a person that he knew had the virus, but he felt fine so he decided he wanted to go skiing. Now all the ski areas are shut down during the height of their season, and the high country has more Covid-19 patients than Denver does, and it only took one careless person.

Here's a rather interesting homemade RV, it appears to be a semi-tractor-trailer combination with the trailer turned into a fifth wheel. It looks like a lot of work to turn it into a home but probably not any more so than converting a bus, and think how strong that trailer would be. The carry capacity must be astronomical.
There are several folks camping in tents around the LTVA but I noticed this one because it's the same brand and type Coleman tent that I camped in summer before last, except I believe this is the four man tent, which I can't stand up in, and mine was the six man version that I could. After my recent experience of camping in a tent I believe these folks must be mighty tough to do it long term.
