Denis, Gail and Dixie,

Welcome to the FMCA forum.  Sounds like you have covered the entire range of camping.  We went from a tent to a 35 ft. Hurricane to our current coach.  Enjoy your retirement and see this great country.  We sold our home in central Texas in 2011, hit the road full time and have never regretted it.

Snowflake, Arizona sounds like it might be cold in winter!  But then Maryland is not the tropics in winter,  We visited our grandson at Indian Head, MD in October 2015 and he said it would be getting cold there.

We are now spending our winters west of San Antonio, Texas and the summers in southern Colorado.  If you get near San Antonio, TX or Antonito, CO give us a call.

Welcome to the forum. Thank you for your service. I like the name kind of fits with the military way of having acronyms for everything.;)

Denis, Gail and Dixie...Welcome to the Forum!

Denis, thank you for your service!  Have been to Snowflake several times and winter is not bad...if you like winter sports and trout fishing, you picked a good spot!

Enjoy your future travels...it's a beautiful country!
