We will spend the winter of 2013/14 southwest of Austin which may be our first step of relocating to Texas. We need to visit Ohio to spend time with the Kids/Grandkids.

We have wintered in FL, TX, and AZ. Each state has its attraction for us. I have asthma, so must stay out of windy, dusty weather. That nixed most of AZ and the valley of TX. Florida also has detractions for me, we once stayed lakeside at Lake Okechoobee, the smoke from burning sugar cane fields choked me up. We wintered the next time at Ft. Myers Beach; no smoke, no wind, no- to- few bugs at night, 2 miles from the island and the beach, shopping within bicycling distance.
I think the thing I miss most about wintering in the valley is this: bullfightingschool This is the ONLY bullfighting ring in the United States of America. It is a thrill you never forget. Some of the top matadors of Mexico come here to perform. P.S. Don't leave town without a full gas tank.

You might take a look at the Hill Country rivers such as the Guadalupe.

Just checked - the weather in Austin is now nice and warm. Mid 80's.

I am trying my new weather channel app. I used to be able to get pollen counts but now I can't find it...ugh.

How is the pollen count in the Texas Hill Area?

Be still, my heart!
My appetite for TX has been whet.
Keep a light on for me

We sometimes add 7 to make the day last longer. Either way - straight - ricks or a little 7- RV Mutants adapt to circumstances and that is not the same as planning. It's just mutating.

Your part was ok , Kent. Especially our visit with you at Grapevine. It's that RGV that we disliked for a lot of reasons.

There's a lot more to Texas than the RGV.

I have to say, I moved to Texas from Colorado 20+ years ago for work, but the second reason behind that was the people in Texas. I found most folks we met while visiting/vacationing here in Texas super friendly and just down to earth folks. People that don't appear superficial and as I call them "tupperware" folks, which is, at the time I left Colorado, what I felt like more and more folks were becoming. Not a rule of thumb for everyone, just more prevalent to me.

We would come to DFW and party for New Years, and I was always amazed back then how friendly folks were and how much more 'original' they felt. I loved that feeling.

Now, here in North Texas, 20 years later, there are folks with attitude and 'tupperware' personalities (here in DFW they are called people with 'Dallatude" ) like everywhere else, but overall, still a largely friendly populus.

I haven't been to Florida enough to form an opinion, but I have to say that I've always found the folks there to be extremely helpful and similar to those here in Texas, good people.

Each State, like all 50, has their pluses and minuses, like life I guess!

I try not to make generalizations about people, especially based on where they live. The average American moves every 5 years. RVers do it more often than that.

Best summary I've heard in a while. And, if you're from Texas, you know how true it is!
