Why not, it's been the coolest year round social distancing activity for all my 45 yrs.

Yup, there's been essentially zero cases of transmission in open air and even a relatively crowded campground provides 20-30' of separation between sites. RV sales are apparently through the roof as folks who had airplane or cruise vacations cancelled look for another way to get out of the house.

Sitting in an RV is "getting out of the house" only in the very loosest sense of the phrase. And it's not camping. It's more like going to a drive-in movie.

Personally, I don't like camping. It's dull. It's uncomfortable. Hiking can be fun for a few hours, but I want to sleep in a real bed.

In my experience, a large number of people that claim they love camping actually only "love" talking about it, and posting photos of their camping trip, and buying expensive camping equipment to show how much disposable income they have.

Ooh, please tell us more about "your experience" deciding what others really believe.

I love camping but I haven't been able to go since the pandemic because my local forest is closed to fires and camping isn't camping without the fire.

Also RV camping is not camping its staying in a mobile hotel room that doesn't clean itself.

I'd like to do more of it. Wife is pretty worried about COVID. Hard to find a place sometimes.

You're allowed to exit the box. It's not house arrest.
