We have big plans for the VEGAS VOYAGERS. How can this be, you might say, in the era of COVID-19? This can be, at least in my mind, because I am an eternal optimist. We will beat this scourge and we will return to normalcy. It is not a question of if…….it is just a question of when.
With this in mind we are looking towards the future and, with great hope, our first VEGAS VOYAGERS trip, sometime towards the end of August. Can I say that this will happen for sure? No. But if we all do our jobs, I can safely say that this timeline is quite possible.
And our job is really the easy part. Over the next three months we have to mirror image our parents “Greatest” generation and become our latest version of that dedication and drive to defeat a common enemy.
We have to wear a mask, wash hands regularly, socially distance and get the vaccine. It is that simple and the plain speaking truth of what we as citizens need to do. We must be our own Greatest generation.
I want to return to a time when you don’t need to take a test to get on an airplane. I want to return to a time where we don’t need to show proof of vaccine if we want to go on a cruise, and that might very well be the case when we start to cruise again. I want to return to a time where we do not need to show proof of a covid-19 negative test before most European countries will allow Americans entrance to their country. I want to return to a time when we can just get up and go.
I say all of this from a very selfish point of view, and that is my love of travel, and my ability to make a living. As a mobile, love to travel society, we will not get back to normal travel unless we do the things I have described. Period. Full Stop.
So keep your eyes on this space. Our Bus to the Boat program will begin as soon as the ships start sailing from southern California. As mentioned, we hope it will be towards the end of the summer. In the meantime stay safe and lets all do our part to beat this insidious virus.
