@880 Thanks for your comment. We didn’t expect to travel this summer, but by locking ourselves up for such a long time it’s affecting our mental health. Btw, I like your tpf name...Nice number!Wow! @luxemadam, after watching your video, you really deserve a medal (And the beer) after all the work you did!

RT1, I am in awe that you did a road trip of that length. (Will shoot off to check out your travel photos! But, ITA with you re your advice to @Megs that it would be really hard with two young bundles of energy. Whew!
@txstats, I am so sorry you will miss your sisters November tea ceremony.
@paula3boys, ITA re rapid tests, but think we will have to travel anyway bc of MILs health issues.
thank you everyone for your kind thoughts re MIL!
THAT IS A LONG DRIVE!!!!!!!! Texas is huge.Megs, I drove for 13 hours straight by myself to get to CO.
Texas IS a Big state.
No way would I ever attempt that with young kids...I'd be wanting to choke myself.
I agree with everything you said. I live in Hawaii too and appreciated the quarantine to protect the fragile island health systems. I wish the governor had agreed to the mandatory secondary testing the mayors were requesting. Hawaii needs its tourism and I know the economic impacts of the quarantine were severe. I will certainly miss how quiet the islands were and how much safer they felt even now, just a few days into the reopening. I hope everyone respects the islands, culture and its residents and abide by the safety rules we all need to follow.So... mixed feelings. Hawaii has opened up to tourism again, with a negative covid test prior. I havenʻt followed all the exact requirements, but have seen pictures of the long lines at the airports and lack of social distancing and proper mask-wearing. Iʻve seen social media complaints already being posted about tourists not wearing masks when theyʻre supposed to.
It was bad enough trying to catch the tourist that were breaking quarantine when everyone had to quarantine, but with the mix of both. Ugh.
I will miss the lack of traffic, exhaust, and lack of crowding. Iʻm definitely worried about cases going back up as many work directly with public and in the hospitality industry.
