First off, is COVID actually going away soon?  I don’t know.  Vaccinations are up, but so are infection rates.  I am not a scientist or anything and I don’t know how to interpret that information.  I am going to be an optimist and ASSUME that COVID lockdowns will ease up more in the next couple of months. *crossing my fingers*

Let’s Prepare anyway

Since I am getting my 2nd shot in just a couple of days, I am starting to make plans to travel.  It will be a month or so until I do anything good, because I have a lot more than just getting vaccinated.

  • I will still wear a mask until the CDC says it is safe not to.
  • I will social distance until the CDC says I can hug people again.. I am looking forward to that.
  • I will still use hand sanitizer, as always. 

I will be road tripping more this year than I have in the past 2 years.  I do have a “normal” day job now, so I can plan weekend trips, and I have some vacation time coming up.  But, I have more to consider than my health safety.  I need a good road trippin’ vehicle.

I would like to thank Jesse Clark for contributing this article!  Check out her information at the end of the article.

If you are feeling cooped-up and need to get out and about, you are not alone! By now, most of us are tired of the pandemic limitations, yet also wish to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe and healthy. Thankfully, there are ways to take a vacation in these challenging times while maintaining your budget — it just takes additional planning.

 

Staying in hotels may feel risky right now because of potential COVID-19 exposure. An RV, on the other hand, offers additional protection that can keep you and your family safe, which Let’s Go Road Trippin can attest to. Here’s what you need to plan a budget-friendly and safe adventure at this time.

Overlanding, I had not really heard of it, and it recently had been brought to my attention.  There is a pretty good community of people who do it.  There are many different styles of it, and it looks like a great way to go on a road trip! 

I am still learning about it, and was asked to share a link on this site about it.  I really like the whole concept, and would do it in a heartbeat!  Unfortunately, I am busy on other projects to even do much of anything.

Enjoy the View

My wife, her sister, brother-in-law, and I were sitting having a light lunch at this little place with one of the best views of Pattaya, Thailand. I was looking around, enjoying just being there, looking at the view, and then I noticed something I have seen too many times. Do you see any problems in this picture?

How about these pictures?

A year ago, I had no idea what 2018 really had in store for me. Boy, it had plans that I couldn’t possibly have foreseen. I knew my marriage was not doing well, and it progressed to me moving out in the early Spring, followed up by a divorce as soon as possible. It was quick and painless, mostly.

But, what I didn’t see coming was everything else.

I like sitting at home

I have a small apartment.  No couch, two chairs, a computer desk, and a bed.  A pretty bare place, but I like to stay home.  I don’t even have a TV.  What do I do when I am home?  I sit at the computer, edit videos, post videos, use social media to let people know about the videos, then, I go down the social media black hole. 

Of course, I also watch Netflix and Amazon Prime.  I am pretty normal in most aspects.  I have been known to not leave my apartment for days.  That is NOT good for me, or anyone else!!

I love getting out
