That’s what we’ve been told by the park rangers at Lake Mead (through a sign, no personal contact) and Desert National Wildlife Preserve. We carefully selected a spot away from others at Lake Mead. We had a nice view of the lake. We enjoyed a couple nights, several walks/hikes through the dry part of the lake (there is an absurdly long boat ramp that leads to very dry ground-climate change) and to the lakeside. Then the weekend hit, lots of Vegas locals looking for fresh air came out to enjoy the space and then Monday we were told to be out on Wednesday. We left Monday.
Monday we found the Preserve, trying to stay somewhere warm, near Vegas. There was no signs or anything on the website about this park being closed so we figured it was a good spot. We parked on the side of the road for the night just inside the boundary and I scouted out an amazing little space further into the park so we moved in there and setup on Tuesday. Setup includes leveling, moving slides, rugs, cording the refrigerator closed/open, zip ties on some of the cabinet, etc. We are pretty stuff free and I’m pretty good at the process so it takes about 20 minutes to pack. Depending on how level the ground is it can take way longer or less than that to setup. Tuesday’s setup took quite a bit of manipulation to get level with all our tires on the ground, but I was done in under an hour.
Tuesday night we were enjoying the sunset when the ranger came by to let us know we had to leave because the park was going to lock the gate Friday morning. We packed, again. We moved this time to the Great Dunes area. This is BLM land and we figured there is no gate so we should not be locked in or out! We are all alone; it is beautiful; we are continuing our quarantine! With luck we will be here for a couple weeks. That’ll make our quarantine three weeks long and then we will be certain we are healthy before heading back to a store somewhere to stock back up on tp and food.
