Happy I live in Florida

I'm seeing all these posts about winterizing and last trips of the season, and it makes me glad I live in Florida. The camping season doesn't end, and I am currently trying to book some sites for January and February.:hihi::hihi::hihi:

I don't live permanently in Florida, but I do volunteer at Florida State Parks in the summers so I am in Florida 4 months/year. My home base is just a bit north of Florida, but close enough it doesn't stop my RV lifestyle. I full time and let the cool weather come on.

OK, OK, just rub it in ! I guess we could join you way down South after retirement, but there are just too many things we like to be involved with here in Virginia to pull up roots and move. So we will just endure the winters and enjoy our lives here in God's Country.

It would be nice to be able to use the Jayco year round, but I'd miss my mountains too much.

I lived in Blacksburg, VA from 1985 to 1990. It is gorgeous country for sure.

We live in Florida and just bought a Jayco Baja 14f hoping to be able to camp year round. Summer gets awfully hot and mosquitoes do invade, hopefully our A/C will happily hold for years to come!

I live in PA and camp all year long, in PA. I adapted to winter camping in my PU and now having the 17Z it is so much easier. Never say done for the season!
