Underrated lakes/towns for a lake house in Michigan/Wisconsin/Illinois?

A friend wants to drive from the East Coast to the West Coast around August 1. I'm not convinced this is a good idea, but don't really have any hard data. What states (if any) have restrictions on out-of-state travel, self-quarantine and so forth? [more inside]

New to RV: Reliable internet on the road?

My spouse works in an industry severely affected by Covid, and has leave over the summer. I work remotely in IT. My job requires a stable internet connection, though I can deal with intermittent patches here and there. Spouse wants to buy or rent an RV and tour the US this summer, in places that are open and safe. It goes without saying that we, and our children, will practice safe social distancing, etc. I am more concerned about how to ensure a reliable internet connection - and sometimes I need serious access, if I am encoding a livestream (I am not a blogger, this is for corporate work).

Car care in the time of Covid

I have a low mileage car that's gone about 7 months/2000 miles since its last oil change. I usually try to get one every 6 months regardless of mileage because it's an older car and I use it for a general checkup. Currenly I'm only driving about 20 miles a week thanks to social distancing. Can I wait a while longer for the oil change trip to the mechanic? I'm still trying to avoid unnecessary interactions with the public.

After just over 8 long months working in Central Africa, I’m finally able to fly home to Canada next week.

Links or personal experiences appreciated. [more inside]

Are these good reasons to move back abroad?

You, a US citizen, lived abroad for six years. You've been back in the US for three years now and are on the cusp of moving to NYC, a place you always thought you'd end up.

Does anyplace in New York look anything like Italy?

I'm thinking of renting a house for a week this summer, something I never do. When it comes to travel, I usually go far, or not at all. If I could have anything I wanted, I would be overlooking the mediterranean. But I'll have to settle for New York. Are there any coastal places nearby that would come anywhere close to what I'm hankering for?
