Not A snow Bird?

I ever get a coastal boat able to take me to Maine in the spring/summer and Fla in the winter. Chasing the cold or cool weather is my idea of cruising life. Just wondering.. can I be alone in such a pursuit?

Well, I used to chase the warm weather. Anything below 15 C is too cold for me!.
However, enjoy, keep us posted.

Though not a "snowbird", we are of a different feather, but flying with the same flock. I grew up in Fort Lauderdale and have almost always lived in Florida. We are "hurricane birds" and escape to the Chesapeake or Maine for the summer. 'sure you're not alone,- there are twenty snowbirds for every one hurricane bird. Take care and joy, Aythya crew

I'm not a big fan of unnecessary sweating. *grin* Accordingly I prefer the Abacos in winter to the Exumas. The latter is simply too warm during the day time. The former is lovely all day; a light blanket at night is just fine and it is a pleasure to not worry about heat from cooking dinner.

We haven't managed to get far enough North to avoid heat in summer.

I am afraid to answer this question, it looks like a trick question in Monday morning.

Ooops, it is 12:43 pm, never mind in Roseanne Roseannadanna's voice.

Just "snow" at this point but will eventually add the "bird" part!

Sounds like a great plan to me. 84.7" of snow in one season will do that to a person.....

Me too, you can't dress for the hot weather. Even Maine is too hot, lets go to Nova Scotia and PEI or get chilled on the iceberg & sipping pina colada.
