We left Friday afternoon and made it as far as Mobile. We camped for the night in a relative’s driveway. We left the next day around noon, and were able to set up camp before dark on Saturday.

My brother went in for his COVID test on Sunday and was admitted to the hospital once the test came back negative on Monday. Since no one but patients are allowed in, my wife and I will remain here in camp until he is discharged, hopefully by Monday the 15th.

It is a 15 hour drive back, and I plan on doing it in two days. Until then, not much to do beyond housekeeping and surfing the web. Every day, we cook, clean, and I dump wastewater. My wife is still attending virtual meetings for school, but mine ended yesterday. I don’t have anything scheduled for the next two weeks.

We are here for my brother and his cancer treatments. My brother is the first friend that I had in my life, and I did not hesitate to agree to help him on this trip, once he asked.

Welcome to Houston. It's been relatively calm so far, and should continue so. HPD has a low tolerance for crowd violence. I've trained with their mounted and SRG (riot) team (as a fake protester) and they are well trained and professional.

If it all goes pear shaped, I'm on the west side of town, and you can reach me at my last name at aol.

Good luck to your brother.

I'm glad you are there safely and pray you stay safe.

In a previous post you suggested dinner if the gear you would take with you. Please don't tell us what you did decided to bring until you are home safe. Operational security.

If you are willing, can you do a post on what is in your medical kit?

As you are a medic, my curiosity is high.

Thank you.

Sorry, Swype gives me weird typos at times
