    We are retired so we have no interest what so ever. Whatever comes up is interesting to us. Traveling and staying out of Cold weather is our goal.

  1. Quartzsite is a long haul for us being from Northern ,Ohio. We have however been to Quartzsite twice as we happened to be traveling in the area. We prefer to get our meds and medical , dental work done in the USA. We are not fans of boondocking such as it is in "Q" or camping in the dessert .It is however a experience and should be on the RVers bucket list
  2. We have all of the mentioned drug stores near our home and they all do the flu shot. We got ours at wall greens since they are the nearest.
  3. Ignore it and do whatever you choose to do.

  5. We have no problem with Medicare it has served us well with no problems what so ever...….. Yet. Between our Federal BC/BS and Medicare it is rare that we pay any out of pocket.
  6. Our Medicare premium is 2942 for the both of us. The BC/BS which was a Federal Government plan since we both were Federal employees was 6080 total . That = 9022 .Medicare did pick up 80 % of the bill.The out of pocket was for additional cost we choose to incur like private room , TV, Phone and special diet. This is a edit We had to go back and check numbers. We made a mistake on our Medicare premium. We usually do not have to pay anything between our BC/BS and Medicare BTW our BC/BS plan is 253.00 per month per person for those who may have been federal employees that is code 104 self only was less than self and family. The additional cost was personal choice
  7. We were very fortunate to be able to carry over a very good BC/BS plan provided by our employer .Helen and I worked for the same employer, It still cost us with Medicare over 9K a year for coverage but many pay much more than that. Few years ago Helen had non life threating surgery that from start to finish had a bill of over 65 K.I think it cost us around 3K out of pocket. We would have been done in had we had to pay that entire bill.
  8. For what purpose and who is doing that.
  9. Summers are not all that bad here in Northern Ohio. We did not travel anywhere this summer and we usually leave for our Residence in Florida in Oct but this year we are staying in Northern Ohio for the winter for the first time since 2005.
  10. Anyone notice that Glenn is no longer responding....
  11. We carry a couple of surgical masks in the car and truck and one is in my pocket at all times. We are not a medical person so we will pay attention to reliable medical community and not Facebook experts or politicians. The mask is very uncomfortable and I have trouble breathing through it in a short time. I wear it were it is mandated.
  12. We never have much water in our fresh water tanks when in travel just enough to flush the toilets, etc . Water taste different in different parts of the country and most of us are accustomed to the water at our Domicile. We carry a couple gallons of home water or store bought water when in travel. We do not boon dock. The water at our Florida winter residence taste nasty although test good. We purchased a filter system from the water filter guy years ago and use it in Florida to filter out the nasty taste. We do sanitize the fresh water tanks twice a year
  13. never turned off the propane in any of our 6 RV's over the years and never had a problem. Lucky I guess.
  14. Actually we both worked in the same building but different sections that had a day shift population of over 600.We do not have school aged children but as RV ers of many years we do travel all over the country. We have a few grandkid's of schools age. We have social distanced as best we could since this virus hit. We do wear a mask and I wear both the mask and gloves during these times since we are both in the high risk age group .I also drove a school bus after my retirement and was required to have the flu shot every year. We are not going to Sturges this year although we have been there .
  15. I have got a flu every year for many, many years as it was a condition of my employment .I never had the flu. The wife has never had the flu shot she never had the flu . What does that prove.
