State, National Park, and National Forest campgrounds are closing all across the country due to the coronavirus outbreak. This is a massive problem since there are an estimated 1 million full time RVers in the United States. So where are we all supposed to go?

Jenni and I won’t be disrupted too much by these campground closures since we boondock in dispersed camping areas in National Forests and BLM land 99% of the time, however we are not the norm. The vast majority of RVers stay in campgrounds though and many will now be displaced.

One thing that will definitely affect us though is the closures of National Parks. As of writing this, many of the major National Parks have closed including Yellowstone, Yosemite, Rocky Mountain National Park, and more. We had plans to visit Zion in the coming weeks but, despite Zion remaining open, we will not be going into the park for our own safety since Zion is jam-packed with people and we understand the importance of proper social distancing.

Check out the video for all the info on how the coronavirus pandemic is affecting us and other full time RVers.

    I have lived in Sedona since 1977. I've actually been driving to Phoenix for groceries, although I have two huge chest freezers full Laugh at the sticks and bricks homes as RVers will, I'm so glad I bought property when I was young and have had it paid for for many years.

    I didn't even think about propane. That's an extra trip. I've been hunkered down at home making trips to the grocery store every 2 weeks. Consider renting a place for the short term. This pandemic can last longer than a year, especially if their is a 2nd wave.

    Yes, I suppose this is a couple of weeks past this video, and the challenges are indeed dismal for so many, as of today, the US death toll is over 16,500 individuals…and climbing. Stay safe you two, and hope you find more TP prior to needing it, as you just can't use cactus!

    You might want to eventually consider getting a bigger trailer. I just purchased a lance 2445. It has a spot even for the dogs and can handle any weather.

    Question: What if your truck’s starter or alternator or any other part malfunctions when you’re out boondocking? How do you prepare for such an emergency?

    Would be smart to buy a small piece of land where you can go if need be.

    We really enjoy your channel! We were in the Grand Canyon boondocking when they were open but nothing there, like the visitor center, were open. There was hardly anyone there and we were able to hike some trails and see the Grand Canyon and still practice social distancing.

    Lord bless. IMO… this pandemic is real but it is being used as a cover to rescue children that have been captive underground. Please pray for captives. We love your videos. Please, please pray for captives, some of these sweet children have never seen daylight. Thank you for your information and please I beg of you to pray for captives and for those persecuting them. Jesus is the only way out of this life. Love to you all. May God give you eyes to see and ears to hear. Love to you all. Stay positive and happy in our struggles, give what you can and cross yourself in the name of Jesus! Everything will be ok. Pray unceasingly and stay positive. Love to you a ALL! Most Holy Theotokos pray for us. 💚☦️

    If you have no "home base" – to whom do you pay taxes…? Are you contributing to the local, state and national tax base – which pays for everything you're using (free of charge, in many cases)…?

    We had to go back home to our home camp ground. We also have no stick an mortar home so looks like we are stuck in Indiana. Our camp ground is privately owned so we are good till summers end. Just glad we kept our spot there.

    Be strong and be courageous fellow Nomads and Modern Pioneers of this time and age!

    Enjoy the allure of the wilderness, small and big creatures, coyotes howling, jack rabbits with their treats, and fresh breathe of air.

    This shall pass and we will be stronger than ever before!
    Take care and be strong physically and mentally!

    Cheers from the Nevada desert!

    FS and BLM rules to limit camping to 14 days and then make one move to 25 mi away are opposite to what the states and feds are asking people to do….hunker down and stay put…

    WAKE UP – use your hands/fingers after "dumping"; then just wash your hands. Absolutely NO NEED FOR TOILET PAPER if you run out.
    STOP – LEARN; When you have TP, use 2 tissues, no more than 3 tissues per dump. And use each tissue for two wipes – front to back, fold, then back to front.
    THIS IS NO JOKE.

    Our state (NC) issued a stay at home order and we are several states away. I called the governor's office and asked them what we should do. He didn't really know, but I bounced off the idea of staying in our boondocking situation as long as we can, but when we have to travel again, doing so in the direction of our DL address (my parent's house) seemed agreeably kosher as the order allowed travel back 'home'. Though it unideally truncates our plans, and though it makes the traveling less enjoyable with this underlying unsettling peculiarity of the predicament, all we can do is our best in this situation. I hope we aren't resented or regarded with suspicion as we pass through. (Gypsys have a history of getting blamed for things). And when we finally make it back to the homelands we will self-quarantine at a young robust brother in law's driveway instead of our 'old folks at home'. I'm hoping none of this reasoning is faulty. Strange times. What did you guys decide to do and why?
