RE: Migration north

This weekend (March 28 & 29)we have more leaving than any other time. Reasons stated are to be home for Easter Weekend, Getting home to complete income taxes and for those renting not wanting to pay another months rent. Soon it should be rather quiet & peaceful and the weather is perfect every day, mid 80's.

RE: Migration north

Agreed, I don't like below 50 degrees anywhere. Supposed to be 85 here today.

RE: Bayfield wisconsin

The nearby town of Washburn has 2 nice city campgrounds, nicer than the private campground in Bayfield. Both are on Lake Superior and about 10 miles from Bayfield. They are first come, first serve, no reservations taken.

RE: Rock Chips in the RGV

I have been lucky, only 2 in the past 11 seasons, one was this Winter.

RE: Snowbirding first time in 2015

In the Rio Grande Valley of Texas Bentsen Palm Village Resort, Retama Village, Green Gate Grove, Victoria Palms, Casa de Valle and so many more, with nearly 500 parks in the area you won't need advance reservations at most. You may also like South Padre Island, North Padre Island, Mustang Island, Port Aransas, Rockport and Galveston Island all on the Texas Gulf. We leave MN in Mid Oct.

RE: Duluth to Glacer

#2 is a good road and not much traffic, lots of boring wheat fields on the way.

RE: Gas VS Diesel F250

I tow 12000 lbs with my 6.2 gas, it does fine including in the mountains. The diesel had more power but cost me bundles to keep maintained and repaired. It was the old 6.0 diesel so hopefully none will be as bad again.

RE: South-TX Weather Has Been Wonderful (So Far)

Even the Chamber of Commerce is thinking of looking for warmer weather.

RE: South-TX Weather Has Been Wonderful (So Far)

I used to count the days I wore long pants, one winter it was only 3 days, average was 2 - 3 weeks, this Winter about 2 months, but then I am getting softer too.

RE: South-TX Weather Has Been Wonderful (So Far)

I officially declare today the last day of Winter in the RGV.

RE: I 10 in Texas

You can bypass Houston by taking the free ferry south of Houston from Galveston Island to bolivar Peninsula, Easy route, little traffic and OK for big rigs. Drive the barrier islands, very little traffic and great beaches. Roads are good.

RE: Cooking in Yellowstone and Grand Teton NP

Rangers will confiscate your cooking stuff if you leave it out.

RE: South-TX Weather Has Been Wonderful (So Far)

Just like always the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, the fruit is sweet and the butterflies are flying... I think I just saw a bird wearing a scuba tank fly by. :B Yup, and the butterflies have flippers and swim goggles.

RE: Add a room

In my opinion add a rooms are a pain to attach and detach and store. I just don't think they are worth the trouble. Very few bugs in Texas besides ants and it won't keep the ants out anyway. I would bring your old dogs along, they may be around longer than you think and you could miss your best years of snowbirding. Some parks have a 2 dog limit or size limit but many don't. We have never came across parks where retired fire fighters group but you will be welcome most everywhere.

RE: Ford Diesel 6.0 really that bad?

My 2005 had numerous very expensive problems, I now have the 6.2 gas.

RE: Migration north

The forecast for Friday morning in the RGV: A chance of rain before 3am, then a slight chance of rain or freezing drizzle. Cloudy, with a low around 33. North wind 13 to 16 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%. Why would anyone want to leave that? Not sure where you found that forecast, low here in Mission 37 at the lowest. Not that much better but at least not freezing, my flowers are blooming and tomatoes on my tomato plants, would sure hate to see them freeze. Have not had a killing frost here for 3 years.

RE: Snowbird rates

In the Rio Grande Valley of Texas from $185.00 a month to $800.00 per month. Average is about $325.00 - 500.00 a month. Reservations not required, best to just come down get a place for a week& visit many parks until you find what you like. The weather has not been great this winter. Much to explore in Texas on the way down and back. Many Minnesotans here.

RE: RV resorts in Florida

I am going to be retiring in November and was not open to going to Fla. for the winter but after this winter's weather it seems that we are going to look in Fla. now. We currently have a park home in Michigan and would like to find a nice park to check out next winter to find a place that we can winter at. We are looking for a year round park where we can purchase a park home for the winter months. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. Please start a new thread for this, you are likely to have much better response.

RE: Migration north

We have had 2 or 3 leave, some will leave just before Easter and some feel they have to be home to do income taxes. We will wait until about May 1st and will be nearly last to leave except for those who choose to stay all Summer.
