Covid has not affected us in any significant way. We did not travel in 2020, but that was due to health issues, not Covid. We don’t have much in the way of social life in our new town. Covid cut that to zero for us. I lost my weekly bridge and her women’s group went to Zoom.
This year, we spent five months on the road getting as far north and west as Montana. Then the heat dome engulfed us. We spent two weeks in an RV park just so we could have AC. 111 is hot. We then hopped scotched south to New Mexico pausing on every mountain to to escape the heat.
Some places were masking, others not. It really did not bother us. Most of our human contact was at grocery stores. We stayed with friends in several places. We did meet a new spanker and enjoyed playing with her. We found that Dems were more worried about Covid, but then they are more worried about everything.
We are not much on eating out except when the offering is something special. We found several New Mexican style restaurants in southern Colorado and northern NM. They were all only using half of their tables, so they were not crowded. Two were open-air as they allowed the air to flow through the in-door seated area. Probably normal for them.
We seek out of the way places to camp so the multitudes of RV travelers did not bother us much.
