I do support every medical and scientific professional that is working to come up with a cure and a vaccine. You can be sure that once the latter is tested, I'll be getting it. It took me 40 years to finally get my first flu shot. I will try not to wait THAT long for a COVID vaccination!
Hubby and I finally did the right thing and canceled our plans for Death Valley NP. We are both disappointed, but we know that come fall, winter or spring break next year, we can try again. I think the biggest push, beyond my own vulnerability to this thing, was the closure of restaurants. Neither of us could imagine 4 days straight of fast-food taken from the only two drive-throughs in Lone Pine (McD's and Carl's Jr), every meal, and we're not sure what would be available in DVNP for lunches. We couldn't find information about whether our hotel would allow us to cook in the room, and there were none of those places with kitchenettes available in either LP or Big Pine. (They're small towns.)
This is one situation where we wish we still had our 5W trailer. We'd take it up to DVNP or somewhere with few people and just hole up there, having all of our own facilities right on board. It makes me wonder how many people are renting RV's to do just that.
In the meantime -- if anyone is interested in a series of travel books to read during this time, I highly suggest Matt and Karen Smith's Dear Bob and Sue series. In Season 1, they travel (often fly/drives) to every single national park in the US, and I do mean every one of them. That took place in 2010, when they took a year off work and a bunch of $ from savings to make that happen. Then in Season 2, they start checking out national monuments, state parks and other natural areas. I haven't finished Season 3 yet, but they are continuing this quest and it's now 2018. These are memoirs in the form of emails to friends. They're not done for tourist information, these are their own thoughts and responses to what they see. They are also into hiking, to the tune of 6-10 mile day hikes and an occasional backpack. (I'm coming up on their backpack up the Chilkoot Trail from Skagway, AK.)
If you can't get these from your library, because it's closed or they don't have the books, they're reasonably priced from many sellers, including Amazon and (the first 2 only) Barnes & Noble online. BTW, our county library system has a "Drive through" program starting today, where you order your books online and then come and get them when they're ready. That way we aren't going cabin-crazy during this "unprecedented time". Yeah, I'm off school, though I have virtual "office hours" from 10 to noon every day.
