Everyone's taste is different, but I wasn't blown away by Marylands crab cakes. Betty loves crab cakes and will order them if they're on the menu. If my memory serves me, we ate crab cakes around Oxford and Easton, and somewhere on the west side of the bay.

Yeah, "taste" in food is like taste in trucks. We come to FL and ain't no one gonna have real Mex food or eat hot food. The jalapenos here are just little bell peppers. Bought a package of the hottest thing I could find at the store, "hot" serrano peppers; you can eat them literally like a bell pepper. Made a pot of posole stew and shared with our neighbors from the NE. Used very mile green chiles and thought it was bland, they thought it was too hot. The "best" of anything is in the eye, or mouth, of the beholder/eater.

Well, real estate property became a good option for investment, especially after the global COVID-19 lockdown, but I suggest you buy the RV instead of buying a small cottage. Here is a high possibility that prices for the property will fall this summer for a high value. So my advice to you is to buy a solid RV now. If prices for real estate properties don't fall, you can always buy the property, or if prices fall, you will be able to sell your RV and buy a small house cheaper.

Danny, I know you get up around the Tallahassee area and Crawfordville. Have you tried the El Jalisco restaurants? I don't pretend to know anything about Mexican food but these restaurants are very popular here.

Yes, we've eaten at Jaliscos. In fact, it's about as close to Mexican we can find in that area. It's pretty good but they use some kind of seasoning we're not used to which puts us off a little. Almost reminded us of eating norther NM Mexican food that has some native american influences in it. But yes, we've been there. In fact we ate at that new one in Crawfordville right before we left in May.

After twenty years of 'snow birding' we spent the last three years in a small RV park and decided to buy a park model and stop hauling the big 5th wheel. We now have a small unit for short trips and local camping. The place in Zephyrhills will be our second home for five to six months each season.

Our situation is very similar to yours. The thing is, we were renovating our country house this winter. Only it's not in Florida; it's in California. The renovation took place only inside the house since we had already done it outside last summer. And so, this year, we decided to spend the winter break not in the country house where the renovations were going on but in a campervan. And luckily, we were able to do that. During the trip, we toured many beautiful places in our state and a neighboring state. We visited various restaurants. Well, it's summer again. And we will be spending the last 2 months of it in our almost-ready-to-move-in country house. There is still a little nuance with the home staging, but the experts from https://onstage-online.com/our-services will help us with that.

I guess if you span out the scenarios of global warming rhetoric, "snow birding" is going to become an inverted practice of people in Florida seeking cooler temperatures and climate in Canada. Never say never?

My wife grew up vacationing in the same place down in Mexico. Once she finally talked me into crossing the border, we took the Alpine down there and had a great time. We went a couple times a year for a few years straight and then started taking my parents down there, my dad loves the fishing. We considered buying a vacation home down there, but my thought was I can still take the Alpine down, itís not that bad, 9 hour trip, park it on the beach and enjoy it whenever we want and still take it other places. I know retired life is different from working life, but I couldnít see limiting myself to one place. I look back to my childhood, we went to Canada fishing every year. Changed lakes/locations many times. I also spent 25 years in the Air Force moving around quite a bit. Many places I never made it to that I want to go, many places I left years ago that Iíd like to go back, too many rv trips planned to make a perm location worth while. Plus, with the rv, if I donít like my neighbors, I can move. Of course, with the recent surge in rv owners, itís getting more difficult and takes more planning.
