We've spent nine years wintering in Florida. Seems that almost all the snowbirds here are from East of Mississippi. Westerners seem to stay West of Mississippi. How many if you crisscross? Northeast to Southwest and Northwest to Southeast. We are going to Tucson next winter.

Born and spent a lot of years east of the Mississippi. Went west and never looked back. No desire to RV east. JMHO

"spent a lot of years east of the Mississippi. Went west and never looked back. No desire to RV east" .... ditto
In AZ, you'll see license plates from all over the US and Canada...not so many from the east coast, but lots from the upper Midwest.

. I understand that. We've spent last four years traveling Western states including Alaska, but have returned to FL for winter. Before retiring, we spent vacations for 24 years in the West. Leaving FL next week for slow trip to Wyoming, then next winter in Tucson.

Guess us western folks just feel more comfortable with other westerners who speak with our dialect and who like the generally wide open spaces that we're accustomed to (except southern CA) that are offered in AZ, NM, west TX. & UT.

12 years fulltime. Spent one winter in Florida. We prefer the deserts of AZ and CA. Family matters will necessitate Florida for the winter 2014/15. [emoticon] The following spring and summer may take us back to the North East and the Maritines.

I95, I75, I55, I35, and I5 most just get on the closet one and head south. At $4/gallon and 10mpg then the budget tells you how far east or west you can go after you hit I10.

We leave our home base in Reno early May for Wisconsin and will be in the Midwest until early August visiting family and friends.

Then we head back West, the Northern route, to arrive on the Oregon coast in September. Back to Reno mid October before going back to Casa Grande, AZ. before Xmas until mid April.

We tend to follow the 'good' weather....East, West, North and South. [emoticon]
