Restrooms on the Road
One of our biggest issues with our pandemic road trip, has been about restrooms.
I even bought a nifty (and sort of creepy) gadget, made for ladies who don't want to squat in the bushes. Ugh... but good to have, I guess.
On our trip out west, we found very decent rest stops. They were cleaned well and the doors were propped open. Most had openings near the ceiling, for more airflow. We were all about NOT picking up Covid on the journey to our family gathering.
I wore my mask and used a tiny disinfectant spray. I waited a minute at most, to make sure I could zip in and out, without anyone else inside. Only one time did we change our minds and drive on to find a better rest stop.
A Different Route
But, now we're heading home on a different route. The handy sheet with the list of rest stops, won't help us on this drive.
I've been looking up rest stops on GPS, but what's with all the rest stop closures in New Mexico?
Masks at the Pump
So, I was forced to use a gas station rest room. I had to walk inside and actually go through a laundry room area... because it was a truck stop!
We have a Texas license plate, after all. Don't want people to think Texans are traveling around the country sharing the Covid.
Biggest and most obvious travel tip. Don't drink a lot on the road.
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
