We have met several full/part-timers that make the move south in the winter or move north in the spring based on the temperature. As it approaches the freeze point of water....time to find a warmer location.

Welcome aboard and enjoy the life.

danrodgers;

Welcome to iRV2. We are glad you decided to join us. Post often and don't be afraid to ask questions. I really like your way of winterizing better than mine. I have to put mine to bed for the winter after winterizing the plumbing.

danrodgers ,

Hi Dan--- Welcome .

Glad to see you here, and love your comment about your background-- We all will gain from your background and experience here on iRV2.

I do as you do- Go to Maine for the summers and am currently in South Mississippi for the winter (Biloxi, Gulfport, Bay St. Louis, Waverland). We find the "seasons" are all the same inside the Casinos. The food is second to none and the prices are unbelieveable. They all run specials for buffet meals. They all include special days for such things as "Gals and Pals", "Seniors", "Retired military", etc-- Two for one-- all of which we qualify for . Where else can you eat all the crab, shrimp, rib eye steaks, prime rib, oriential, Italian food, etc you want for $21 (Hard Rock Casino) for two people (includes your drinks). It's a virtual orgy of food. Many of our wives here actually forget how to cook-. They have top name entertainment also. In fact, Pete Fountain still performs at the "Hollywood Casino" in Bay St. Louis. They have a beautiful, full hookup, RV park on the property. The "Silver Slipper" (also Bay St Louis), has full hookups right on the beach. The two for one buffet at the Silver Slipper was $11. This month December, it has changed, but it will come back.

Don't forget to use the free "Google phone service", 800-466-4411, for info, and placement of calls-- on locations for businesses, restaurants, any thing you want, any place you travel-- It's fantastic. No more phone books, yellow pages needed-.

Again, welcome and safe journeys to you and Yours,

Sincerely,

p.s. If you head this way, drop me a PM (private message).

Well, do what we did... come to Vancouver and you can start gardening in February, most years!!!??
Theeeee ONLY place in Canada without snow most winters, ok some rain.
Thats why we got the Winter Olympics for 2010, but the Coast Mountains are FULL of snow, as far as I can see!

hey, we are from the Southern Ontario region, close to Lake Huron & Georgian Bay. Can't beat the weather for spring, summer & fall, But can get real nasty in the winter. We will be fulltiming in a year or two, so we thought we would get a fifth so we could get used to it & do any mods needed without being in a rush. Don't have a truck yet, but I've heard other people say to get the rig you want, then look for the truck. We are put away for the winter, but can't wait to get started again. (Guess I shouldn't rush time at my age!!) Like the input about casino food!

Welcome Danrogers,

We are also from Southwestern Ontario. Near London. Putting the rigs away for the winter is a tearful thing. We do Winter camp in Ontario. Most of the provincial camps are open with 20/30-amp service. McGregor Point park is great and close for us, about 1.5 hour drive. It may sound tough, but lots of fun. We try to get off to the south for a few good weeks in the winter.
Guess finding a truck right now in Ontario should be easy with all the stock that I see at the dealerships around here.

Good luck and safe travels,

Hey Bert_64, we are just north of London as well. We do some camping on the Bruce & area. Currently we camp in the St. Mary's area. When we get mobile, we will hook up. Nice to know members are close by.
