RE: New to this. Best weather in winter??? Help?

Don't forget to checkout the Rio Grande Valley of Texas about 500 parks to chose from.

RE: Algodones, Mx dentist

Interesting read. I look at it much like buying a car. One that comes with a warranty will cost more then one "as is." In the US you have third party options in case something goes wrong. Those options are what you're paying extra for. South of the boarder if something goes wrong the only option you really have is the mercy of the person who screwed it up in the first place. Like Dirty Harry said "you feel lucky?" As far as cheap cleanings, that's an old come on in any store. Milk is only $1.99 but we'll get you on the bread. A fast cheap cleaning that shows up profitable dental work is not a "cheap" cleaning to the patient. Are you saying you had bad experiences with dentists in Mexico or no experience? Our cleanings have been much more thorough than the ones in our Minnesota he town and less pressure to get work done

RE: Algodones, Mx dentist

We and many of our friends have gone to Mexico dentists for many, many years with as good or better results than USA dentists at 25%- 33% of the cost.

RE: Long Term Car Rental in South Florida

For that amount of time buy a used when you get there, sell it when you leave.

RE: Your winter destination

We leave Minnesota for Mission Texas in mid October and return in mid May.

RE: el paso

You may want to consider Zapada at Falcon Lake.

RE: Mesa Verde National Park

There is a very nice private campground right across from the entrance to the park. Mesa Verde RV Resort.

RE: RGV RV Parks

Canyon Lake just north of Mission is close to Walmart and a large Grocery store as well as a couple of good restaurants.

Looks like we may have to Winter in Canada.

RE: S.W. Florida filling up.

Having experienced both the RGV and SW Florida, I feel qualified to compare the two. First, lay aside two arguments: both have many wonderful restaurants with many wonderful offerings, and both have a plethora of activities and attractions to entice snowbirds. Not much difference there. Two big differences are the temperatures and the winds. The RGV is colder -- much colder. In the RGV, you're going to go from coats in the mornings to T-shirts in the afternoon -- provided it warms up that particular day. If not, shiver. In Florida, shorts and T's make up the uniform 24/7. I bike regularly, but never in Florida have I had the RGV experience of wind so strong that my bike and I traveled 1/10 of a mile without pedaling once. It then took me 20 minutes to push my bike back to the starting place. Ugh! Ever had a cookout & picnic outside in the RGV? Where are the picnic tables? Nope? Not at Tropic Winds in Harlingen! Why? Too windy is the answer. Check the RV awnings in the RGV. Did you ever see so many ways to tie down and secure awnings against the daily winds? If your idea of an idyllic snowbird experience is enjoying a gentle breeze while sitting under a palm tree with a book in one hand and a cold drink in the other, Florida is the place to be. If economics guide your choices, remember that central Florida rivals the RGV in costs, but also remember that you generally get what you pay for in both places. Cheap beer is available if that's your choice. So is the RGV. Having spent 12 seasons in the RGV I find this to be very inaccurate.

RE: Glacier NP to Iowa (North route)

Roosevelt National Park is a must. We loved visiting it. If you drive the loop just before sunset you will see much wildlife.

RE: North Carolina

Compared with Montreal, only having snow 45 times in 74 years is a gamble I'll take! :B Over the past 4-5 years, I can recall seeing snow three times and it was typically gone the next day. This past winter, February and March were really nice. ... Eric I really prefer shorts & T shirt and sitting on the patio, Personally would not be at all interested in weather that cool.

RE: S.W. Florida filling up.

I think Florida is so crowded because of where folks are coming from - the heavily populated states north of Florida. Snowbirders seem to head straight south for the most part. Texas and Arizona aren't as crowded because the northern states above them don't have the populations the eastern states do. I too predict this is the reason. Just a note, the RGV is green too. We have an orange tree, lemon tree, tangerine tree, and grapefruit tree on our lot as well as 6 different kinds of Palm trees and many flowering shrubs. Neighbors have banana and lime trees. The climate is sub tropical and we have not had a killing frost in 4 years.

RE: S.W. Florida filling up.

Rio Grande Valley, friendly folks and very low cost of living, surprising how many East Coaster's we have here.
pawatt 05/06/16 05:23pm Snowbirds

IMO there is more fear and paranoia here than realty. We have met many ladies traveling alone and full timing alone. They use common sense but are not fearful or paranoid.

RE: I have $20,000 cash right now.. Can I afford this??

I suggest staying away from the 6.0 diesel. Many are serious money pits.

RE: My First Winter In Yuma

Consider South Texas, Rio Grande Valley, non stop things to do, friendly rvers and locals, very reasonable cost. Warmer than AZ.
