A few days ago I was planning on moving from the LTVA's in Quartzsite to some other place I just didn't know where. And this move was based on my concerns for what might happen in California, particularly Los Angeles, if people went full Zombie Apocalypse, panicked, bugged out and overran the Quartzsite area. And that still concerns me but not as much as the chance that if I hit the road there may be lot of places that have closed down and I might not be able to get the essentials that I need to survive as a fulltimer such as water, dump station, propane, and of course food.
Quartzsite has those things available since it is for all intents and purposes an RVing town. And I can't envision many reasons why the federal government would shut down the LTVA's since it would cause more problems than it would solve. But then again sometimes it's hard to guess what a government agency is going to do because they often base their decisions on reasons other than common sense, and good judgment. For instance I'm still trying to figure out why New Mexico closed all their state parks, the camping areas are spread out so you can do the social distancing thing, and you can pay the Iron Ranger so there's no need to touch anyone. I'm sure they have their reasons but it doesn't make much sense to me.
I'm a bit concerned for various reasons about traveling at the moment and I'm leaning towards staying here in Quartzsite for a while longer, maybe into April, since I do feel safe here at least healthwise.... Just not Zombie Apocalypse wise.... But maybe I should stick with a place I'm very familiar with for now and not go driving off the edge of a map that says "Thar be Dragons".
RVers are keeping their distances, this is about as close as I see people boondocked. As I walked to the dumpsters this morning, which by the way all four of them are full and overflowing, not a good sign me thinks, I saw four or five people sitting together in lawn chairs and they were spread really far apart, an unfortunate sign of the times.
I saw this brand-new looking family sized tent and wondered if these folks are just campers like the rest of us or did they rush out and buy a new tent so they could escape the infected town or apartment building they were living in. It's hard to tell Nowadays life has changed so much. But today is the first day of Spring and Spring brings hope, resurrection, and a new beginning.... The world sure needs an extra special Spring this year.
