What's New With Us

Wow, what a difference a month has made. We started March off enjoying a 3-day stay at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in Nevada. A gorgeous park with a little BLM campground close by.
The Corvid-19 virus was in the news but things were still open and people were going about their business pretty much as usual. So, we left Nevada and headed over to California to the Dove Springs OHV area to meet up with a friend and get a chance to ride in his RZR off-road vehicle. It was a blast.
Having never been to the Dove Springs BLM area, we decided to set up camp for a while. The weekend was over, and all the ATVers had pretty much headed home, so it was quite peaceful. A couple of thunderstorms passed through, making for some fantastic desert scenery.
We spent about a week boondocking by ourselves and everyday news of the spreading virus got worse and worse. We had to make a decision. Cut short our trip and quickly head home to Canada or stay and isolate somewhere off-grid for a month and see how it goes.

After mulling it over for a day or two we decided to leave California which now had some counties in lockdown and head to the Oregon Coast. We did a couple of long drives and ended up at Cape Blanco State Park. Not many people were there so it looked like a good place to camp for a bit and see what was happening next.
Well, it only took a day or so to get the news the Oregon State Parks were all closing down. After that things start to unfold quickly and Washington closed its state parks canceling a reservation we had., A few more long days driving found us on board the Coho Ferry heading back to Vancouver Island. 

Once back on Canadian soil we headed straight to a Thunderbird RV Park campsite in Campbell River to begin a mandatory 14-day self-isolation. We were lucky to get the last spot they had open.
2019/20 Snowbird Trip Comes to an End – 14 Day Self Isolation
Anne and I are now on day 8 of our self- isolation, and thankfully, both feeling fine. Having lived together in our RV for nearly 9 years now we don't find it too difficult. We are pretty used to being with each other 24/7 so to us its not a huge change.

Once the 14 days are up, I plan to get back to publishing videos starting with an update to the Ram 3500 truck review after 35,000 kilometers now. It sure was nice to have as we pushed hard hurrying back north. I'll also let you know how the various truck addons I've installed have worked out.
Stay safe everyone. All the best to you and yours, Ray
