Dwindling Nomad Options
It didn’t take too long for my passport to become useless. Most countries have shut their borders, in one form or another.
National and State parks, forests, and campgrounds are starting to close. That’s making it hard for folks in RVs to find a place to park their rigs. Private campgrounds are also closing.
Marinas are shutting down, making it just that much harder to be a live aboard.
Bugging out is looking less and less like a valid option. Heck, they are even discouraging people from hiking the Appalachian Trail.
There are people who’ve set out to cross the world in sailboats and now are stuck. That’s often not too great as there are places that are fine for short visits, but you wouldn’t want to live there. On the bright side, boaters are used to being self-sufficient and usually are well stocked. I know of a number of boaters who’ve selected remote anchorages and plan to stay there for months on end.
Looks like we are in the middle of the ultimate bug-in situation.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
