There must be a lot of people who have been waiting for a South Texas cool down. Got a call from a friend in Missouri who was happy that we might get some frost this weekend. (It was 12 F there). Texas is a great bargain for the temperature per dollar spent. Been above normal most of the Winter with many Air conditioner afternoons.

Well, you definitely will win for the next week, there's no denying that. starting today was only the fifth day I've worn long pants all winter but it looks like I'll add another five or six days.

We love the Everglades !
We use Flamingo as our base camp and then go kayak camping from there -
Some times as many as five days.

Would you like to compare campground rates between Florida and South Texas? Three months in Donna, Texas cost us $1200. That's about the monthly rate in Florida. We love south Florida especially the Ft Meyers and Sanibel Island area but unless we win the lottery it won't happen.

Bought our RV lot in WPB 15 years ago for $40K and could sell for $100K today. The cost to use for those 15 years is $75K (HOA, property tax, electric). If I sold, the $15K difference for 15 years is pretty easy math...$1,000/year. If it will help, I’ll add in the $800/year interest on the $40K.

In the right place the value jumps by leaps and bounds.

We bought our lot in Key largo six years ago for 80 K and right now there is one in a much less desireable place for 180 K. With our 2 queen size bedroom 2 year old trailer on it, it would go easily for 230 K
We get bombarded from realtors with buyers wanting to buy our place

Naturally we have no intention of selling - we love it here
