I just crossed a bridge and was asked

What is your name?

What is your quest?

What is the flight velocity of an unladen swallow?

I have a hunch that, at least in Europe, the virus-based restrictions will ease-up. I have a feeling that public attention is rapidly turning toward these riots and such.... I also suspect that, at least in the US, there will be new curfews kicking in (where the virus left off)... and please, for all folks contributing to this thread, keep us updated regarding ALL restrictions regardless of the reason behind them.

Yeah here in Europe I feel things are chilling out regarding the virus - but still who really knows. I am also preparing myself for the likelihood that our summer trip this year might be confined within the borders of the Czech Republic > which is full of wonderful places so I'm not complaining....

I am still hoping the virus will soon be forgotten in Canada by Aug/Sept so I can make a flight there without being bothered by maniditory covid testing and quarantines.... fingers crosses.

Thanks everyone for your updates!

Are the riots affecting any of you directly in the US? Or are they mostly confined to city centers and 'hoods'?

An English swallow or an African swallow? Laughing Cool

FYI, I just returned from flying to Michigan, driving around wherever I pleased with Idaho plates. Then drove to Texas through Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma again with no issues. Stayed at hotels, ate at an Indian restaurant, etc.

The idaho/BC border is closed still. The border patrol station also let me know that 200m beyond their normal crossing is a new Provincial control stop and they have no phone number to check as to rules, etc. That news is from about 3 weeks ago and subject to change.

Not sure if this is the sort of stuff people are interested in but the White Mountains of NH are more or less "open". The 14 day self quarantine is still in place for a bit longer, but that's what a van is for. The NF campgrounds are almost all open as well as local businesses.

No issue driving from Maryland to Florida last week for the SpaceX launch. Florida had a test station at the border but it was not active when we crossed. It appeared to be active the morning we left. But they did not care if you were out bound.

Here in Czech some more info - however still sketchy.
They are saying that from June 15th all the Czech borders will be fully open [not completely sure yet if this means quarantines are cancelled upon return].

However it is also not sure which countries outside of Czech will allow you to come in. There is Poland (which is VERY scared and remaining closed), Germany, Austria, and Slovakia.

We are headed to Slovakia, Hungary, Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro, and Albania > so if anyone has info from those countries it would be great!

The state parks are for residents only.
“Under Stay at Home 2.0 reservations will be limited to only NH state residents. Remember, this is just the first part of a phased approach to reopening our attractions.

We ask that you please be patient. We want to get up and running as quickly as possible but need to make sure we do so safely.”


I am unsure about private campgrounds.

It looks like everything's pretty much opened up in Colorado.

Visiting RMNP is by reservation only...Going hiking Saturday at exactly 10 AM. They're holding the park to 60% capacity; no days have sold out though. (60% sounds great considering how crowded it usually is.) Dunno about camping.

State parks are open and have limited campground camping. I checked a few National Forests and dispersed camping is allowed. Heading to Curecanti Nat'l Rec Area and Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP next week.

Great Sand Dunes is open but the campground is closed; Medano Pass (4WD trail) is open with sandy conditions and first come/first serve primitive camping.
