How far south is enough for the winter

Got the motorhome ready for traveling south this winter finally. We will continue south until the first person asks us what that is on the trailer.

LOL...that's funny.

Was going to ask why you were taking the snow blower south for the winter...until reading the post.

Best luck

How far south?

Great question . . . I wondered the same thing and created a High/Low temp map for the US . . . US 12-month Temperature Map.

Go south until you STOP seeing road signs that say 'Bridge freezes before roadway'!

We were in the Rio Grande Valley last winter. The bridges still had the freezing warnings on them. BTW, we had two nights with a low of 38 degrees. Never did see frost.

Very funny! We have one of those things collecting dust. Kind of forget what it was for.

Go south until you are closer to Cuba than a Walmart.

an excellent reference, thx very much for doing and sharing your work.

I read a few pages of your blog and like your style, so bookmarked it and will return to catch up on what I've missed.

Thanks also TechWriter for compiling that info; we'll be spending our first winter stay of (4) months in the RGV. Looking forward to it. Matter of fact, I've listed my snowblower for sale as I ain't gonna be needin it anymore.

Techwriter, a great and fun to look at chart! After getting the RV we started going to Florida's gulf coast, and ended up going south until the front wheels were getting wet. Then we found a place to park near Marco Island.
I too have one of those snow thingies, with flat tires, using up space in my shed.

Thanks Techwriter for the map. I'll use it to decide when it is time to move North.

Based on the map and the cities you chose, I assume you are not much of a corn belt person! Me either, and I grew up there (Illinois)!!!
