Under the heading of life and possibly fitness, mid week flying coast to coast in a time of pandemic is much like the most cheesy low budget pandemic movie you have seen on late nite TV. Empty airports, planes that seat 200 with only 20 passengers and few venues for food. You can walk directly to the check in counter since you are always first in line. In a twillight zone twist I expected to hear "there's room for one more dear".   
The eerie quiet is most disquieting as well as no temperature or contact data taking. There are mandatory mask wearing rules. At the airport hotel you have the pick of any room on any floor. The TV is always tuned to Telemundo for the cleaning staff. It gave the feeling there were maybe 20 people in the whole place. Little 'SANITIZED' signs were everywhere but gave little confidence.

The chosen route was DC to Columbus then on to Portland. Other rejected routes involved hot spots in the southwest. Mask wearing is easy but gloves have to come off after an hour or two. Changing clothes is not reccomended in the bathrooms so 'creativity' is key.
Social distancing is not an issue and you probably won't see any Walking Dead.
