RE: Snowbird Longevity, and related

Just for some interesting discussion: How long have you been snowbirding? This is our 14th season How long do you stay south and or in transit? A bit over 6 month. What is your home state? Minnesota What age did you start? Very fortunate to have started at age 53 1/2 What is your preferred location? Rio Grande Valley, Mission Texas area Have you tried other locations? Yes, Tucson AZ, Rockport, Galveston Island. How long to you expect to continue? Hopefully to the bitter end. Progression of RV's & other accommodations? Started Travel trailer, then 5th wheel, then park model, currently brick home in an ownership RV & mixed dwelling retirement community. What will you do when you are to old to travel north & south? Most likely stay south permanently, Minnesota winters are difficult with the cold and falls on the snow and ice, My mom is mostly housebound after the first lasting snowfall until permanent melt. Any other relevant comments?

RE: Possible snowbird next year.

Here I would say many stay 5-6 months The largest influx is a few days after Thanksgiving, combining Thanksgiving and Christmas with family then heading south a day or 2 after Thanksgiving.

RE: Possible snowbird next year.

Rio Grande Valley, warmest and nearly 500 parks, South Padre Island, beach and fishing, Rockport and Port Aransas,less crowded and fishing, Hill Country, cooler but scenic and uncrowded.

RE: Morning Lows

30 the last 2 nights here in Eloy, AZ which is about half way between Tucson and Phoenix. Warmed up to the mid 60's during the day. Eloy is about 1,500' elevation. The low temp comes for about 2 hours between 4-6 am so no worry about freezing water hoses. If worried about that just carry an extra water hose. Forecast for this month is for low temps in the mid 30's to low 40's and day time temps in the 60's and 70's. Come down and enjoy the 'winter'. Brrrrrr, too cold for me.

Also ask and shop for first timer discounts, many parks with vacancies will offer a discount to get you in.

RE: Returning to the RGV after 11 years of snowbirding Fla.

Nearly 500 parks in the Valley, most will have vacancies. Come get a spot for a few days, drive around and find what you like.

RE: Percentages

We are an ownership park and I estimate we are About 80 percent full. Dec. 1 is a week away.

RE: Percentages

Today is the day after Thanksgiving, the day the biggest wave hits the road, many will be here by Sunday and some take their time and will show up in a week or 2. I think you took your survey a few days to early.

RE: Is nuevo progresso still safe?

Well, we spent the day there today. Good food, cold drinks, friendly vendors and a very festive atmosphere. Lots of music in the streets and restaurants. A good time and the crowd is growing but only took about 4 minutes going through customs coming back.

RE: Is nuevo progresso still safe?

You really can't compare Matamoros to Nuevo Progreso. Even I do not go to Matamoros or Renosa.

RE: Is nuevo progresso still safe?

Our friends have been going regularly without issues, 2 neighbors going tomorrow, we are going Thursday.

RE: Snowbirding in Texas

I'll give you my 2c speech like I do on the Snowbird forum. Hopefully it won't bore you two much. Since you're in an RV website I'm going to guess you are a mobile RV snowbird and not a snowbird that drives down to a park model. Given that assumption, and assuming you're coming from MO (per your signature)I would suggest the following: Going south go to Galveston Island via the free ferry from the Bolivar Peninsula. No worries it handles multiple 18 wheelers and RV'ers all the time. Spend some time on Galveston Island. Drive down (from the bottom of the island avoiding Houston) to the Rockport area. Spend some more time. Drive down to South Padre Island and spend some time (Jan/Feb timeframe.) Turn around and head up to SA and spend some time. From there head up into Hill Country (Mar/April/May) and spend some time. Call it a winter wrap for Texas. Then enjoy some of the free Casino parking and parks in Oklahoma prior to the mad dash for home. Enjoy, if you don't then there is always FL/AZ/CA just to name the big ones for the following winters. Good advise and much to do and see following that route.
