We are in Vero Beach FL volonteering for Habitat for Humanity till mid December and moving on to Gulf Cost for 4 months and back here for a month before going home at end of April. We love the Atlantic in warmer weather and volonteer when less Snowbirds are available.

Gold Canyon in AZ, and probably will winter there until we're too old or injured to off road in the desert. Then have a couple other places to try out, Texas being one, and maybe a season in Yuma area. Sounds pretty crowded there, but we'll see.

Florida, other humid flat places. Arthiris no like. Been there.
Southwest. Dry. Off-road. Go see stuff tourists do not. Wildlife, scenery.
Stay far from the madding crowd.

The journey is our destination.
Nuff said

Anyplace warm

Winter for us is Jan, Feb, & Mar. we have to get home prior to April 15

Wintered at Victoria Palms, Donna, Texas in 2005 & 2006.

Winter of 2008 toured Arizona. Benson too cold, freezing temps at night, Gold Canyon still too cold for me. But the hiking was great. Organ Pipe Cactus Nat Park very nice, Lake Havasue City warm but boring.

Since then we winter at Sun-N-Fun RV Resort in Sarasota, Florida. We found a park that we really like and with aging mothers we can be home in a day and a half or fly same same day if necessary.

I know I can fly home from anywhere but we really enjoy Sun-N-Fun and are beginning to know some of the regulars.

We enjoy the high desert of Benson Az. Mountians, Tusan, Tomestone, Az Wine country cactus and more all within an hours drive. Chilly nights in Jan but daytime temps are quite nice. Very reasonable camping fees, several campgrounds in town to suit your personal taste.

Why by April 15? If it is for income Tax file an extension.

As for Florida we will be working in a private Campground cleaning showerhouses and rental units. Again in return we get our campsite in return for 25hrs per week of work.
In our opinion it is a great way to offset the cost of camping and keep our monthly cost down.

SW Florida for the past 12 years. Arizona is very nice, but it is a longer driver. Never been to SouthTexas.

Tax extension still lots of work

Judy3972, unless I read the tax procedures wrong, you still have to do a lot of computations and pay estimated taxes in order to get an extension. If I am wrong please let me know. If I have to do all of that work on the road I have to take a lot of info with me. The biggest problem is that 1099s are not forwarded by USPS.

10lactonr below --Benson was not warm in the daytime. 55 degress and windy is not my cup of tea. Anything less than 80 degrees is cool to me.

You are right, it's an extension to file not to pay.

We have spent the last 13 yrs. in the Mesa, AZ area. Wouldn't trade for anyplace else. AZ. has the most consistent climate in the winter time.
