We like the Yuma, AZ area. It is close to San Diego, Phoenix and Tucson for big cities. Plenty to do; rock climbing, desert hikes, jeep 4x4 runs, exploring old Gold mines. Two casinos in the area. Great place on a budget, too. Temps are perfect for the winter. Out of there by the end of April.

If someone would have asked me that 15 years ago, I would have said Florida. I love it there, but then I spent a year in Tucson. the location is phenomenal. In less than 8 hours, you can be at the Grand canyon, Phoenix area, Los Angeles, San Diego, and everywhere surrounding. Great climate. Yes the nights can get cold, but you can go from freezing to 70s in 4 hours.

I lived in Florida for 4 years as a kid. Can't stand the bugs. Don't mind the humidity but DW doesn't like that - messes up her do.

We have spent the past 10 years in:
1) Yuma - to crowded.
2) Imperial Valley, boondocking - too much work.
3) 6 years at Big River (across the Colorado River from Parker, AZ) While we enjoyed our stays there it is beginning to be allowed to deteriorate.
4) The Palms River RV Resort at Needles, CA. Enjoying it here except for the week-enders and their ATVs.

No place is perfect but we keep looking and moving.

Baby Sister has indictated a desire to visit Mardi Gras Feb. of 2014 so I am beginning to research that. Any suggestions?

South Texas the last two years. The price is right and we have park jobs this year to pay for site.

We will be at Retama Village in Mission this year. We have been to Mission for two years previous but were able to get a spot here this season.

Great for hiking in the mountains, cycling along canals and power lines, golfing. Lots of places to go to for day or overnight trips. Hockey, baseball, football, basketball.

We leave Prince Edward Island, Canada, the middle of December, go to the Boston area for Christmas/NY, and on Jan 2 drive hard to Mississippi where we stay at a rural, quiet, 6-site campground, 12 miles from Biloxi/Gulfport. We've done this for 4 years. The prices are right, the food is enjoyable, esp. shrimp, and we don't have the hassle of too many people in too small a space.

Never been snowbirds. We are F/T. But we winter where it doesnt snow or freeze hard.
Some folks find a place they like and go there every winter. Thats fine!
We are still vagabonds. In the coming years, we will winter mostly in the SW. Dry is good. Humidity is not.
We park the MH and explore around it about 100 miles in all directions with our Wrangler (yeah, lots of off-road) and then find another playground.
This year we started out in northern AZ and moved south following the good weather between October and now. Dont know where we will not hurry to next!

Happy trails!

+1 on the Keys. We spend 5 months here to stay warm. Another month somewhere between the Keys and back up north. No sense rushing to cold weather.
