Home again, now Martha's got the Rona

Another long day of driving, starting at 7:30 AM CST and getting home by 4:30 PM (gaining an hour when we crossed into the Mountain Time Zone).  So figure 10 hours on the road, with stops for gas and lunch.

Martha had been exhibiting itchy hives yesterday, but we thought it was an allergic reaction to the grass cutting ops that had occurred the day after we set up camp at the Rolling Hills COE campground.  Some dizziness as well and some swelling of joints.

So, we decided to cut the trip short and left this morning instead of Saturday morning.

Turns out, Martha is positive for Covid-19.  Sigh.  So, we got her the same antiviral meds that I got back in Wisconsin tonight and she's in Covid jail for the next ten days.  Good news is that her symptoms, so far, are very mild, unlike mine which were more flu-like.

Here's a pie chart of the expenses for this camping trip.  Not surprisingly, fuel costs dominated.  It worked out to $67.31/day.  

Miles driven: 2696

Martha, let Doc Dom take care of you. Hope you get better soon.

This doesn't come too unexpected, but I hope very much that Martha will get through it with mild symptoms. Please take good care of her.
