First winter since we got our 5th wheel we stayed home (some medical and dental issues).

Picked a good winter to stay though since we are getting our first snow of the season tonight. Normally we have had 5 or 6 by now.

Next year, back on the road to Key West!

There are wonderful military only campgrounds in Florida.
I was going to clue you in on how to use them if you were.

Where are you from in Mi. It's single digits there now and all iced up. Great time to be from Mi, as far from it as you can be.
We spend our winters in Casa Grande AZ. We are from Grand Ledge just West of Lansing.
