LOL.... We arrived in Fl a few days ago and it was 58 at the time. I was sitting outside in my shorts and no shirt, boy was I getting some looks! The nice old gentleman next door said "you're not a snowbird, you're a snowman'", he's been calling me that ever since.

Gulf Coast Mississippi. We've been there the last 3 years in a row and the rig is now packed and ready to head out mid-Dec from Prince Edward Island Candada; it'll be our 4th year near Biloxi.

Similar thing down in Apache Junction last March. I'd go to a store in a t-shirt and see people in winter coats. We'd be staring at each other! And I'm not that warm blooded. It always bothers me a little to see a mother with a 3 or 4 year old in a t-shirt when it's 40 here. Especially when she's got a coat on.

Well, we've been in RGV of Texas - too dirty for me; then Arizona- nice much cleaner and you can choose hot & dry or cool and comfortable; and Florida - too humid. So probably will end up back in Arizona. For those of you who say west too far, east too far - hey we are full timers we can go where ever we want to go!

Certainly true in the summer, but winter is the dry season we soon found out. All winter long they are fighting wildfires because it's so dry. Surprised the heck out of me.

Siebrands, do you stay at a campground? We are in New Brunswick and starting to plan , I've never thought of the Gulf Coast, Miss.

Thanks, Retreever

DW and I have spent winters in the RGV and Florida. Florida is more expensive, but has more to offer, for most people. The RGV is less expensive generally, and a completely different climate. We did not like the seemingly constant 30 MPH "breeze" in the RGV, and blowing dust that it brings.
We stayed in the interior of S. Florida once, then once at Ft. Myers Beach which IMO is great. Next time we plan to winter in AZ, not sure where yet. We like to visit different places so I doubt we will spend two winters in the same place.

Workamping is when you agree to spend X amount of time working at a place, normally an RV park, in exchange for a paid campsite, partially paid campsite and stipend, or some other arrangement. There is a pay-for-use website for these RVing people who want to use this option to help them live their chosen lifestyle.

We stay in Saucier MS, which is near Biloxi. I like quiet, so we chose a small campground about 5 miles outside Saucier. It's owned by a local fellow named Charlie Dabbs and has only 6-7 sites. We've made some friends at the campground and travel around the area often, e.g. Mobile AL, Gulfport, even into Louisiana. It's hard to beat Gulf Coast shrimp! The campground with wifi and electric and sewer and water is $325/mo. Can't find that in Florida, I don't think.

We have a lot in FL away from the expensive 'snowbird' resorts. Little town of Bowling Green, FL. We are private people that like our space. Best kept secret in FL "Avion Palms".

Below the frost/freeze line with reasonable golf and other activities to enjoy. Only 35 minutes to Sarasota area.

Just enjoying the lifestyle of simplicity and our mh gives us the best way to enjoy it.

Dave
