RE: Looking for a place to winter

If Texas interests you I suggest looking at Retama Village, Bentsen Palm Village Resort, Green Gate Grove or many others in the Rio Grande Valley area, Far warmer than the areas you mention.

RE: Winter Texan numbers dropping in the Valley

No bumper to bumper traffic here. Been to Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart, Tractor Supply and Radio Shack. The people could not have been nicer. They are looking forward to the Winter Texans returning. Come on down! Agree, we have always been warmly welcomed and treated with respect.

RE: Texas Trader in La Feria, Texas

Friends bought a motorhome there and were very happy with the good customer service they received.

RE: TT or 5W

We have had both, I like the 5th wheel best, more room, more storage, tows better but you will need at least a 3/4 ton pickup unless you have a very small 5er.

RE: Migration south

We have been going to Texas in Feb. the last few years, I am retiring at the end of the year at age 70 and have been looking forward to spending more of the winter there. Unfortunately, my wife's health is declining and I'm not sure we can go at all. We missed last year because of a broken hip and now 3 compressed vertebrae fractures. If you can go, don't put it off, you never know what the future holds! Go as soon as possible and enjoy!! This is very good advice, hope you can make it. They do have some very good doctors in the Valley too, Especially at Dr's. Renaissance in Edinburg.

RE: Trans Canada trip: Nova Scotia to Calgary

The really good scenery is West of Calgary, Bannif, Lake Louise, Jasper & all of BC. You will see a lot of Wheat fields after you get out of Ontario.

RE: Winter Texan numbers dropping in the Valley

Over 65 on Medicare coverage is better than any we ever had with our private insurance. It is the younger retires that face the huge medical insurance costs. I retired at 53 and medical insurance has been my biggest cost. It is the 55 - 65 age group that we are not seeing starting to snowbird. Medical costs are one of many reasons I think we are not seeing much of this age group as well as RV parks not adapting to the interests of younger snowbirds, no or lost pensions and other reasons. In the park we go to I would say the average is well over 65, maybe 70. I want to retire in about 18 mos. at age 63 and then migrate to Texas for the winters, but the health insurance is the one thing that is still a big ?? Insurance will be costly where ever your are until you reach Medicare age. I currently pay $515.00 a month for a $3500. deductible Blue Cross Blue Shield Plan for myself only, my wife has other insurance. This was about a $200.00 reduction in cost for me since the ACA, no subsidies. Be sure what ever insurance you get covers you in the states you plan to be, many only provide limited emergency room coverage and maybe urgent care. Tell your agent & provider your plans and make sure you have coverage. We travel all over the USA and BC/BS has plans that work but are more expensive than some.

RE: Winter Texan numbers dropping in the Valley

pawatt, How is the valley now? We are planning to stop and shop in Mexico. Is this a good plan? We normally stay at a small park in mission called Seven Oaks, but have not been there in 4 or 5 years. We wonder about all the bad press on Mexico but in our past experience we never had an issue in Pergresso. We will be back in the Valley in 3 weeks, Friends there have been going to Nuevo Progreso without incident. I would avoid Reynosa but things have calmed down all across Mexico and many do spend the Winter in Mexico as well. They have had about 12 inches of rain in the Valley this month so bring your mosquito repellant until it dries up. We are about a mile from 7 Oaks at Green Gate Grove.
