I'm not going to let it stop me and in fact, I'll likely take advantage of the inevitable reduction in costs. I'm in the process of booking a trip to the Far East right now, for next summer. I might take disinfectant with me on the plane and be a bit more cautious about touching things/washing hands/covering cuts but I'm not going to let Ebola stop my life.

I wouldn't be traveling to Africa any time soon and I think we will be rethinking our Alaskan cruise next June, but I would hop on a plane and go to Maine in a hot second.

I noticed in our paper that Brazil had its first case this week. I usually travel in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean and so far I've felt that good medical care has been available or close. But I'm having some reservations this year between bone break fever and Ebola.

My doctor says, "Go" and his nurses say, "Wait." I've always had a lot of faith in a good nurse. So I think I'll wait a while and see how this all plays out.

Saturday night I went to the Lutheran Church to have a pre-holiday lutefisk dinner and midmeal I had a paranoid thought: What if their African missionaries have been called home and are eating with us tonight?

Then I remembered I was eating lutefisk, for crying out loud.

I'm dauntless.

Made plans for both November and December, no plans on changing.
You can get Ebola from visiting the supermarket.

Interesting that many of you are referring to Africa as if it's a country. Most of the over 50 countries on the continent have seen two fewer cases of ebola than the U.S.

I am going to be going to Florida in December. Not worried at all. The media is really good about instilling fear in the public.

Default Ebola and travel

Since the second nurse from Dallas hospital who has the Ebola virus flew to Ohio then flew back to Dallas with symptoms of Ebola on the flight back makes me know I would not fly at this moment. I don't understand why she was allowed to fly at all. The CDC gave her permission and later said they made a bad call. This nurse also treated Duncan. Maybe I am just a worrier, bout it seems to me there are a lot of stupid people who are involved in treating this virus.

I think we'll have a better idea of how this plays out in a few few months. Maybe there's not much to worry about. Then again, maybe travel won't be such a smart idea, especially by air.
