RE: Travelling back and forth

There is a plan that we are working on to go from Sudbury, ON Canada to Florida for a week in the middle of next winter. There are several things I am wondering: 1) Unwinterizing and winterizing is going to have to be done along the way. Anyone have tips on making this a seamless thing? Watch the weather on your return leg and winterize when you start getting close to freeze/sub-freeze temps. Once done, you're going to have to use public restrooms and so on. No more on board toilet use. 2) How annoying are the 2 border patrols? Have you seen them really search an RV or not? Was stopped the first time we ever crossed into the USA at Buffalo. You'll be asked to vacate the RV and wait inside the secondary office area, usually near a large mirrored wall. I believe they are observing your demeanor while you're waiting for the "all clear, on your way". Stay cool, act normal (whatever that is), relax, and wait it out. If you've got nothing to hide, that is. 3)Buying food. Can I bring stuff from Canada without issues? Can I bring stuff back to Canada without issues? Citrus going south is a no no. Search for lists of what's allowed on the CBP and/or CBSA websites before you go. There are usually no exceptions. You may also be asked if you "have anything to declare" or "anything coming in" with you. That usually means $10000 cash or equivalent/weapons/alcohol/tobacco. Don't forget the "no illegal drugs" warnings. The citrus can be a problem even though it is labeled as grown in Florida.

RE: Snowbird Report Card

16th Winter in the Rio Grande Valley, This was probably the second coolist year out of the past 16. We had a very light frost once but not enough to damage our tropical plants except for the banana trees that are very tender, A good winter, we still love the Valley after 16 winters. Great friendly people both the locals and the Winter Texans. Great flea markets and very low cost of living. Tons of activities and Happy Hours. We are in South Palmview near Bentsen Rio Grande State Park and the World Birding Center. Lots of parks on Bentsen Palm Drive for every budget and we have room for youall, come on down. Did you move from Green Gate?
