One of the main reasons I didn't take a chase vacation was because of the logistics (figured a lot of restaurants and bars would be closed, limited capacity, or takeout only) and the overall weird, dystopian "feel" of everything. From @Jesse Risley 's post it sounds like maybe that needn't have been as much of a concern; probably a perspective created by the fact that I am in the Philadelphia area where most all restrictions are still in place and only beginning to be eased (but far from "reopened") this Friday. Also didn't want to deal with cleaning a hotel room every night after getting in late; didn't even think of just using Lysol as @JeremyS did, I was thinking I would have to wipe everything down. Hard to find either Lysol or wipes these days anyway, at least around here. Anyway, other factors were work and not wanting to make my family's life even more difficult after they have already dealt with 11 weeks of lockdown. My earlier TLDR post is somewhere above if you care to read it. It took me a while to find peace with missing this season but obviously it has gotten much easier given how bad the season has been.
