I'm curious. How many PC's are snowbirds? I know there are comments here and there but I thought putting them in one post would be good. This question is good for the reverse snowbirds that live in the warmer zones and "fly" north for the summer too. I'm not looking for specifics like your town or street. More like New York City area to Miami for January through March.
1. Where do you travel from?
2. Where do you travel to?
3. Which months do you normally relocate?
4. How many years have you done this?
5. Do you have a group of friends you see every year at your seasonal location?
6. Do you dream of relocating to your favorite snowbird destination?

Apologies if this doesn't apply to someone who isn't exactly a snowbird (since I am full timing), but just slightly flighty.
1. Travel from wherever I was just before it gets too cold to stay there
2. Florida this year
3. Dec, Jan, Feb
4. This is the first year
5. If I come back here next year I will, and they are very nice
6. Heck no! I hear you can barely walk outside here in the summer!

I travel from Michigan to the Florida panhandle for January, February, and March - been doing this for about 10 years. My husband still works, but uses vacation time to fly down for long weekends. I volunteer at ochlochonee river state park and have developed friendships with assorted people from various neighboring towns and within the park itself. It's a great spot and I have some of my Michigan friends visit me often. I won't move away from Michigan because our Michigan summers are perfect. But I'm too old for ice boating and ice fishing - or anything with ice or snow in its title.
If you are in the area, stop and visit me. I love company. It's a small, beautiful campground in a beautiful area. We're about 40 miles south of Tallahassee and about 8 miles from the gulf. Just ask for Janey at the ranger station. They know where I am.

1 - We travel from Venice, FL
2 - We travel to New Jersey with a lot of side trips on the way.
3 - We leave in May and Return in September. (To hot in Florida)
4 - 10 years
5 - We have great friends in both areas. And in between.
6 - 2 Years ago we did a reversal, sold our NJ home and bought a home in Venice FL. To us it's paradise, but hot in the summer.
