Between Covid and the tornados, it seems like a good time to do a check-in.

Please make a quick post to let us know you are alive and well and feel free to tag anyone you have not heard from, recently.

I haven't heard from @Mouseketab recently.

    Howdy!!! I'm doing great :) Except for the fact I can't go camping, and the poor [email protected] is sitting all forlorn in the garage, I LOVE working from home, and this has been a gift for me :) All we got in the storm was a bunch of rain.

    Removed from all human contact. Last day out to see others was March 12th. (6 terminal diagnosis plus diabetes). That's a lot of targets on my back. Using my 60 years of sewing scraps to make face masks according to CDC guidelines. There's always something you can contribute. Husband, me and non-human family are ok. Uncovered the [email protected] about 4 days ago. Today expecting 3-5 inches of snow. Enjoy each moment as it comes as each one is precious and will not come again. Revel in each breath and heartbeat, for even that is truly a gift.

    Thinking about when we can retrieve our TaB from 6 months of storage and dewinterize.  I ordered a new mount for the 7 pin - will arrive soon thanks to Amazon.  Keeping busy with contractors in the house for our mudroom/laundry room creation.  Playing online Mah jong with my ladies group.  Got a Firestick!  We are probably the last to explore streaming as we watch little TV, but, that may change.  John has completed our reservations for our TaB fall trip out west - hopefully those plans will stick.  @ScottG - how are things up in your neck of the woods?

    Hey Jenn, glad to know you're doing well. We're good here, though wondering how the economy is going to recover, and probably drinking too much wine.

    I am still working and keeping my fingers crossed that I stay that way. 

    In western PA, our numbers are pretty close to Ohio and I am hoping the PA governor starts looking at regions and reopening our area more in alignment with Ohio. The eastern side of the state is a bit of a mess, still, and it will be some time, yet, for them. 

    I had my first outing for the year canceled. It was with the Ohio [email protected] group to Hocking Hills, originally scheduled for this weekend. I will be curious to see how the rest of the summer and my fall trip could be impacted.

    Between Denise's press conference and the new CDC guidelines for reopening the economy, I was a little more hopeful that we might have üCamp. I think some will have to choose not to attend because their health is vulnerable but safe social distancing can still be practiced. Allison has posted in the FB group that a decision will be made on June 1.

    How are our [email protected] owners in the way of last weekend tornados doing?  I’ve only heard from two, but I realize communications and power outages affect our lives greatly.

    All good here. The [email protected] had a little excitement in the big wet April storm that hit the northeast last week, but the mighty little camper appears unscathed. Although it is still chilly, that snow is already a faint memory.
    Sure beats what's happening to the folks down south...

    First and foremost, wishing everyone good health and a special hello to all those dealing with mother nature's wrath as well. Stay safe. 

    I feel like I'm 16 again....gas is cheap and I'm on restriction!

    Things here in SoCal going OK, all things considered. I "retired" last year after 30yrs in corporate legal world. In January, a local company that manufactures hi-tech sensors for the F-22 & F-35 fighters made me an offer that I couldn't refuse so I was "back to work" for a bit this spring, until the quarantine order. May go back once things open up again.

    As for my Air Boss business, I've had two airshows cancel and another postponed. Have six shows on the schedule from late July thru mid-Oct., all on west coast. Time will tell if they come off as planned.   

    Had a 3 month adventure planned across the South in early spring which obviously was shelved due to job offer. Once I can go outside and play again, likely keep it closer to home. 

    Heading to the storage facility today to check in on the rig (neighborhood CCR's prohibit RV's being parked in driveways, etc.) Fortunately, the facility is close by...nice place and great folks. Get all the systems up and runing and take it for a spin. Little exercise is in order. 

    Take good care, everyone! Here's to [email protected]' again soon!

    Hanging in in Oklahoma.  Tried to get out before it all came apart, tried the new to us Tow vehicle on a 90 mile trip in a circle looking for a camping site.  Good news, the Tow Vehicle looks up to the job.  Bad news, not a camping site open that we were willing to use.  Back home to the shop home for the 400.  Hoping for a timely end to all the madness and now is a great time of reflection as to what do we all actually want to restore to our lives.  Time to give up what was not working and enjoy what really matters.  Stay safe everyone  and until it is [email protected] time again...........  Fred, Donna and Jaxson.

    Eastern Washington checking in, and all is well. Perfect camping weather... sigh. A fellow Tabber invited me over to her yard to camp and as much as I’d love to, I don’t want us to end up in the morning paper getting blasted
    for it. There’s room for social distance... I hope our fellow Tabbers in the South, and those who
    live full time are doing ok. Great post @jkjenn! (Sorry Jenn... you started thus post! )

    Doing fine out here in New Mexico.  We are on our 7th week of sheltering in place and have stayed busy landscaping, small tasks indoors and have explored many BLM areas around Deming and beyond Silver City.  We take rides out into the country side to break up the monotony and in an effort to stay away from others as we treat everyone as potentially being infected. The 400 is in storage just down the street and I received a replacement window from the factory and hope to replace it soon.  

    There are 3 COVID cases in Luna county and since Michigan seems to be one of the top 4 hot bed areas of the US we feel we are much safer here.  No plans to head back until the numbers start to improve and travel restrictions ease up in some of the states we travel through.  And as Chan noted, we still have wine and should be okay as long as we have a few sips available at the end of the day.  😂🍷

    Stay safe and pray for better days ahead as well as for those families who have lost loved ones and the thousands out there today who are starving and dealing with the burden of lost jobs and incomes.  🙏🏻

    Stay out of Michigan, Mike.  No good here.  I work from home most days, but other days must venture out.  Being very careful, as I have a preexisting lung condition.  SE of state getting hit really hard, and spreading rapidly.  Miss my friends and family, but I refuse to travel and won't have anyone out to the farm.

    Doing good here in Ohio. Selfishly frustrated for the cancelled camping plans, but understand and support our Governor's early and excellent leadership in all of this. Doing all of the right things, waiting it out, and using our 400 for driveway camping and as a very cozy reading and relaxing annex :-)

    Things are good in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. Cancelled the first two trips of the season so far. But we are safe and healthy. Hopeful things can get opened up within reason fairly soon. We are doing the "Camp In", camping in the driveway, this weekend. I have the propane fire pit set up and everything is ready to go. It's all we can do for now. Camp on!

    Doing well out here in AZ. Camping this weekend. Plenty of distance between sites so social distancing is in full affect.

    Escaped to SW Florida mid March before everything shut down. Recently got laid off but early retirement looks like a very good alternative - more trips with the 400 :)

    Sorry to hear about your job loss. It just stinks. Glad it sounds like there might be a bright side for you.

    Amy and I are home in Asheville, NC. I just hit the 6AM senior hour and scored some hand sanitizer.  B)
    Our kids and grandkids are doing well but they have cabin fever.
    We came off 11 weeks in our Tab 400 and within the first week home, I tackled all of the tweaks we listed during our trip. LOL The camper it detailed and ready to launch.

    Doing OK, staying home as much as possible here in south Florida.  Not much to do anyway.

    Edited with apologies for being negative.

    Looking forward to being able to camp.

    I think when you see groups...even large ones, it's easy to think it represents the masses. I had an experience in a local bike trial, where it was so crowded, it convinced me not to go back. But, our county officials helathcare leaders have over and over praised people for adhering to the order because we have flattened the curve.

    One of the full timers in the FB group recently shared that she is in a park in the southeast and that people are practicing social distancing. 

    It is always the bad behavior draws attention.
