What are the prices??Is there more or less areas to visit??I like fishing, metal detecting, golf and relaxing in the sun..Whatdo you think?? Bud


Bud,

Warm? Where have you been?!? [emoticon][emoticon][emoticon] We're not down here because we like to scrap ice off the windshield every morning or shovel snow!! Most of the time at least in the low 60's.

Fishing? I think all of the rivers out there have been fished out!![emoticon]

Metal detecting? Your too late, I found the Lost Dutchman Mine last year!! I can tell you haven't been out to the desert - it looks like everyone has 3 arms as they roam through the cati!

Golf? - you have to be satisfied with the desert course at Quartzsite and the one up at Senators Wash by the Imperial Dam. They can't get enough water to water the greens, Palm Springs has taken it for their 100+ courses!

Relaxing? - what, your want to relax on top of everything else?!?

I think you need to keep looking for your ideal winter grounds!![emoticon]

We have toured the entire southern USA and have spent the past 5 winters in Yuma AZ. Here is my assessment of the topic:
Florida = too high priced, too crowded, too much humidity
Texas RGV = too humid, a bit crowded
Yuma AZ = prices ok, dry air is GREAT, not crowded, NO bugs
We will be back in Yuma again this winter(Jan 1). Yuma can be windy and cool some days in January, but has sunshine 360 days a year.

I'm waiting for Obama to build a bridge to Hawaii, then I think I will go over there, until then, I like Yuma.

Just came across this SnowBird Website. I thought it was pretty good at giving out destinations. May be a little over the top on the descriptions of the towns, but still useful.

Ron's thinly disguised attempt to keep the southwest to himself isn't going to work is it?

We add our voices to the chorus extolling Yuma's virtues. Spent 6 winters there and would be there now except for wifes parents health and our need to be closer to home for this winter. We are therefore in Florida and are already noticing the humidity issue, whew!


Today is just the tomorrow you worried about yesterday!

There is a new RV Park in Coldsprings, Texas. Rock'n E RV Park. We are not fulltimers, yet, but we are trying to get there. Since we found this park, we have been staying there quite often. The owners are great and the Host are great too. We have been here since Christmas, but sorry to say will be leaving tomorrow to return to that ole 4 letter word work.
