RE: Route from Yellowstone to Grand Tetons

Go straight through the park. It's the best way and doesn't require much time. This is especially true since you're staying in Coulter Bay. Have a good trip! Yup, that way.

RE: How much do you spend to heat S&B over the winter.

Sounds like it should work and reduce that heating cost quite a bit. It just came to me though that wouldn't help much if you had to start spending the winters there. We used to keep our thermostat at 66 degrees when we were home, then 68, then 70, now we are cold unless we keep it at least 72 degrees.

RE: Warning issued against Americans traveling to Progresso

My wife lost her passport there a few years ago, the shop owner who found it sent an employee out in the streets to look for her to return it. They probably could have got good money for it on the black market but choose the extra effort to return it. The shop was the Galeria, we always make a point to patronize their shop and tell our friends as well. Lots of good people there who work hard to make a living.

RE: How much do you spend to heat S&B over the winter.

If it really costs $300.00 a month to heat empty with no one going in and out letting cold air in imagine what it would cost to keep 2 old folks warm if they ever had to spend the winter there. That has crossed my mind also. The cost was real, since I got the numbers direct from MPL electric. I like your numbers a lot better!!! If I get enough responses that are like your numbers then I'll know something is very wrong, and need to be researched further to correct it. We are lucky to have natural gas at the lake, currently the cheapest fuel. I wonder if you could just heat the basement and enough warm air would rise to keep the main floor above freezing. You could do like we did in the old days & put straw bales around the basement. I do know people with basements that turn off the heat, never any problems, maybe it depends on soil type, we are mostly fine sand around here after you get past the top soil.

Thermostat set at 50 degrees, that is as low as it goes. North Central MN This is about 30% higher than previous years. it rarely exceded $70.00 in previous years. If it really costs $300.00 a month to heat empty with no one going in and out letting cold air in imagine what it would cost to keep 2 old folks warm if they ever had to spend the winter there.

RE: Warning issued against Americans traveling to Progresso

Thus far there has been more crime on the US side of the border than in Nuevo Progreso. But I still plan to go to the Mission area as I am not involved in the drug trade or smuggling.

RE: Leaving house with septic system over winter

Last 10 winters away in MN, no problems but then we don't come back until late April or May so if it froze it would be thawed by then.

RE: Florida Property

Have you ever had the insurance company explain sink hole coverage? I did, made her read the whole dang thing to me. And you know what? No mater how, when, where, why or how big or small.......you ain't covered for a sinkhole with a sinkhole policy because every 'exception' covers every actual sinkhole. And there is a clause regarding flood insurance that if there is a wind they don't cover the flood.:? I am still reeling from how they calculate your deductible! It's not a flat fee like it was back in my home state......it's a percentage of the value of your home!:E Who has that kind of money laying around in cash to be used for a deductible if your house was severely damaged and in need of repair asap? Geez, when you cross the state line of Florida there ought to be a border crossing and the question to get in being "are you planning on buying a home and living here"? If you answer yes they give you a brochure on ALL what you need to know since NOTHING is like any other state! Hdd I know how different and costly insurance is here I might, well maybe, not have bought a home here! :B Don't even get me started about the 500.00 impact fee on top of the registration fee for bringing in an out of state vehicle x 3 for me! Rant over. There is no snow in winter here, I am happy.:C I think you should come to Texas, you will find that they will take much less of your $$$$

RE: About 99% sure it will work.

If this your dream do it before it is too late. I know some who have done it for less. Traveling is much more relaxing when you take your time and have short travel days. Look for city park campgrounds. Most are very reasonable.

RE: Florida Property

We do low end properties & it enabled us to retire at 51 & 53 years old. We also spend about 8 months a year 1000's of miles away from the property. A good property manager is the key.

RE: Winter Texan numbers dropping in the Valley

According to a storage lot I use the owner commented to me on the dropping numbers. Mostly it is due to death and illness of older snowbirds, and the lack of young snowbirds replacing them according to that owner. Another thing I thought was interesting was the owner saying that Canadians continue to become a larger percentage of their business year after year. My guess is not having to pay for health care allows them the luxury to retire early and well vs USA. Yes, agree with part 1 and 2
