Just tossing the idea around- get out for the winter

The TT is winterized and the cold weather is coming here to way North AZ. Jan gives us 3 to 4 weeks of 30s day and teens night. Can close up the stick built and escape but don't know where we would go. Did 9 weeks on the road a year ago in summer in one trip so long trips don't scare us.

As many do we like water and fishing. Should add we like clear water not the Houston Ship Channel (yes I have fished it in the past).

Would want hookups for the 22' TT for this trip. Cable TV would be a must this time (we boondock a lot without TV in the summer). Might be in Houston in Jan for a couple of days (business) and may drag the TT there.

Looking at maps and Google right now any ideas?

South TX. ( McAllen, Mission, Brownsville, S. Padre Island )....Very reasonable monthly campground fees for that area.

The Gulf side of South Fla gets full quick Jan-Mar
The more inland and east the cheaper it gets from my research

Investigate anywhere South of Tuscon. The weather is great, and it's about 1/2 or more less money than S. FL.

Sorry Sir,
I had to chuckle. Those temps are heat waves up here in Minnsnowda,
Actually heading down your way.
I'm hoping it's warmer down there.

Parker Canyon Lake, Pena Blanca Lake, Patagonia Lake. Each one is beautiful! There also Lake Pleasant west of Phoenix and Saguaro Lake, Canyon Lake Apache Lake, Roosevelt Lake east of Apache Junction - awesome scenery. Westward there's Alamo Lake and the Colorado River corridor. Lots of water in Arizona!!!

I know all of those but where I'm sitting now I look out over Wahweap Bay on Lake Powell from my front porch. The boat is in the water 10 mins from my door. That's why I asked about the water near Tucson :-) :-) Near is a relative term.

In another thread somewhere someone ask "Is there such a thing as a REAL 4 Seasons RV?"

I said: not if you live in Michigan.. But then After posting I re-thought.

There is.. Where I am parked we do get 4 seasons.. (sort of) but winter here is more like Spring in MI. (S.E. Georgia in case you wonder, a few miles from Darien) Likewise any RV parked in Southern Flordia will be 4 seasons .

My advice for you: Winterize by the "S" method Drive SOUTH.
Home is where I park it!
