    LOL...

    My in-laws go down to Florida every winter. They used to travel in a large motorhome that we affectionately call Al's Bar & Grill when they came to visit the Yukon but in recent years they have found it easier to just rent a condo. Dad enjoys going to music events and they visit with other snowbirds and family that go down and spend some time with them. I have a standing invite but have not considered leaving the homestead in winter because the critters require a lot of care in the cold weather and I would not want to burden hubby with my responsibilities. Instead, I shall visit them for a week in the spring when they are back in eastern Canada and the horse chores are much easier to attend. Hubby doesn't fly, you see.

    Schez, I was about to ask why they do not consider our area in AZ, but then read further they are in the eastern part of the country. We see primarily Alberta, B.C., some Sask., rarely any others. The greater number of license plates are seen on the cars which were towed behind motorhomes. The kicker which caused us to laugh last week: A guy driving an enormous motorhome having tandem rear axles, one of the biggest, towing a trailer on which rode a 1-ton pickup truck! joc
