This past Saturday and Sunday, we saw a tremendous

number of motorhomes, including fivers, heading southbound on I-95. Was there a rally in the south, or just the snowbirds heading down?

We were heading north from Key West. It felt like we didn't get the memo.

Wait until some time in March. Last year we watched them all streaming north on I-95 past Jacksonville. Modern day version of the Exodus.

Next year tell her to bring the toad down when she gets done visiting.

On the trip back to KY after visiting Disney, we saw a never ending "convoy" of snow birds on I-75 and on I-65. I assume many wait until after Christmas (grandkids) to start the trek south.

Happy trails, Bronk
