Covid-19 RV Living - Where Are We Staying?
What a strange time this is right? At first I was concerned that Thousand Trails would close because of Covid-19 and that had us worried. We bounce around between three locations when we are in the Pacific Northwest. Mount Vernon is our favorite location because it is close to I-5 and has the shortest commute to shopping, disc golf and family. Birch Bay used to be second favorite, but is is 45 minutes north. La Conner had no cell signal until 2 years ago so we now stay here as well and it is our second favorite location as it only adds 15 minutes to our commute.
Staying with family isn't really an option. The one place we have stayed in the past has very poor internet which is a must have for us. In addition, without a close place to empty our tanks, we need to transport our tote many miles at highway speeds, not an easy feat. These two issues makes Thousand Trails the preferred place for us to stay.
So when Washington state became a stay home, stay healthy state on March 25th, we wondered how this would work for us since we have to move every 21 days per our Thousand Trails Membership.
It ends up that Thousand Trails in Mount Vernon has closed for camping, but is open to full time folks like us. Their rule is that you must stay here until the stay home order has been lifted. The nice thing is that they are not charging for the extended stay! We are hunkered down here until the stay home order is lifted.
