Snowbirding in our Seneca FK - a first for everything

So... we are on our first stop on our journey to Florida.... Our goal is to keep working while we escape the snow, ice and being stuck inside during the Winter season.

We find ourselves in Elephant Butte NM. Just north of Truth or Consequences NM and the sunny warmth of 88-degrees.

The park is 'Cedar Cove RV Park" and so far our stay has been excellent.

Looks nice. Out of curiosity, why are you coming all the way to Florida if you're already near the sun belt? What part of Florida are you heading to?

We are beginning our 3rd Winter snowbirding in our Seneca. It has worked great!

Enjoy the experience.

Living in Florida, we do the "sunbird" thing. We do 2-3 months in the Seneca to escape the brutal summer heat. And this past summer in the Seneca was great. We even got to miss a hurricane.

Let me know if you make it to south Florida. I would love to see your rigs and put faces to the names. Safe travels.

Mark

This week.... we find ourselves in Weatherford Texas. Just west of Dallas/Ft Worth at Stacy's Dads House. He has a large lot with a place on the side where we have the Seneca all tucked in.

We will be here for two weeks, having Thanksgiving festivities and getting together with some old friends that moved here years ago.

Some of you ask why / where in Florida... we have friends in Tampa, so will be there for Christmas, Orlando for New Years - then south to Pompano Beach for a couple of weeks of work at Associated Grocers of Florida facilities.

We would like meeting any of you that want to meet us along the way!!!

We are not even 30 minutes from Pompano Beach. Reach out when you are down. We would enjoy meeting up with you.

Safe travels, Mark

Just getting some time to update our adventure... Since we are hauling a little more stuff with us for this trip (canoe for fishing / exploring and a work wardrobe) we expected to be closer to our weight limits.. but not this close. Our GCWR is 33k!

(What??? JOF limits a .pdf file to 195kb... I guess you will have to imagine what my scale ticket looks like - because the forum won't allow me to upload it. )

*** Scale ticket should have been displayed here ****
