I drove from Lynnwood, WA, to Fresno, CA over the last two days (just missed I5 closing) and was surprised how many RV's I saw, many of them trailers and 5th wheels rather than motorhomes. As I was heading south I mainly noticed those heading south. I was surprised because it has been lousy weather for awhile- I thought the folks who winter in the south would have been gone before December. Where are they all going?
They are probably doing the same thing I am doing next week. Changing elevations. I'm at a 40 degree daytime high elevation of 5250 ft here in kanab and I can drop down to las vegas 70 degrees at 2000 ft in about three hours. From there I will meander across AZ on my way to Organ Pipe NM, Kit Peak, and maybe Hobbs NM for some peppers! Yum.
Just so I can say it once here: when the sun is shining bright in the southwest winter desert it is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
