We use to snowmobile a lot when we lived in Moline, but after you get wiser, you learn to let the young pups deal with the cold and snow. We will head to FL the Fri after Thanksgiving or the day after the high is only in the 30's here in Concord, whichever occurs first.

You can camp in our front yard, no hookups and we'll be in FL.

Pcola is still too far north. Have to be close to I4 or south of I4!

I think a better question would be "why do retired people go back north in the spring?"

Why does everyone think retirees are supposed to head south in the winter? I just retired and moved NORTH and have no plans on heading south for the winter. I'm looking forward to a nice cold winter and hopefully, lots of snow.

My huskies don't like hot weather! Do yours?

Retired Folks Why don't you go South for the winter?

I already live as far south as you can travel so when I retire in 6 years I will be a "sunbird." I'll travel north in the summer months to escape the hot temps of Texas.

I agree with Moab & Grumpyer, just retired and happy to stay in Idaho and enjoy the cold and snow knowing I don't have drive in it during the rush hour.
