Acacia trees have biblical notoriety and flower and provide fruit. Some varieties are very hardy in cold to 10F.

That's a possibility, but I'm thinking Florida. I want to see how the Snowbirds live. We have been to the panhandle, but we have not taken excursions any where south of Fort Walton beach on the Western side. We have been to Fort Lauderdale but not in an RV. I personally have been to Key West.

The RGV is not to be ruled out though.

When we were in Oregon last summer, there were 2 types of trees that caught my eye
Myrtlewood, because it is used in carving and jewelry, which I bought some
Russian Olive, because of the heavenly fragrance.

I am a tree worshipper, love trees, and always notice new varieties when traveling.... Just ask Larry,
I had to find someone who could tell me what the Russian Olive was, the Myrtlewood had lots of shops selling it.
Both of these were fascinationg to me.......

And do well in the PNW....

Oh not the dreaded Russian Olive!!! It has become an invasive species, and we had standing orders to remove them from jobsites we were working on. I really don't like them, as they are bad.
Acacia trees are much better!

Acacia might not stand up to the wet....it seems to be desert type tree? (Embarrassed I know so little of trees as I do have my Master Gardener certificate)
Barb...perhaps call the local university extension office if they have that there and inquire what would work in the area then pick something off that list.... Just an idea.

Naples, Wayne, think Naples! Gulf Coast. Beautiful Old Town; beaches; farmers markets everywhere; and a car show and the Swamp Buggy Races in Feb. AND it's well below the line that separates temperate from sub-tropical FL. The prime attraction, of course, is us, at the Naples/Marco Island KOA. You know you don't want to miss those particular Snowbirds!

Funny, you know, when Martin met you, he thought you were just a regular guy. Little did he know!!! I keep trying to warn...I mean tell...him!

Cheers!
Sue

It's the southern portion of Texas - known as the Rio Grand Valley. Covers a lot of ground....

From the Wiki
The region is made up of four counties: Starr County, Hidalgo County, Willacy County, and Cameron County. As of January 1, 2012, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated the population of the Rio Grande Valley at 1,305,782.[2] According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2008, 86 percent of Cameron County, 90 percent of Hidalgo County, 97 percent of Starr County, and 86 percent of Willacy County are Hispanic.[3]

Can you say yummy food?

Barb, how about a palm? They grow up here on the Island north of you. Or the infamous monkey tree if you want real quirky.

I've been remiss. I have thought about Steve & Annie getting a new toad and never posted anything about my opinion. Which is, Id stay away from GM products for awhile until they get their QC issues worked out. And while I was thinking this the question was resolved in the most neutral of ways.
So much for the Jeep club, and the others advising what was best.
Steve and Annie, congratulations on making your choice! I hope you enjoy many miles with the CRV behind you.

Thanks Judy!! So the 19th is fast approaching. Annie flys to .... Il on 6/18 and returns 7/9. She will be about 2 hours from your family. If you're up there hunt her down. She should be in R for the 4th. I know you're very busy and actually have no idea how you find time for anything at the moment.... Keep us looped in.

And on the occasions when we want to off road - I will rent a Jeep, drive it like I stole it and don't care what happens to it.
Steve and Annie

I may be a mutant man - but I sure enjoy watching the fake Mountain Men series on History Channel. LOL. It's funny - but the mountain men seem like mutants to me... What they don't have the don't miss and - their journey is the destination.

The Mo Mountain Man Tom - considering retiring and moving to FL - reminds me of some threads I have read of RVers coming off the road or retiring from the RV life.
