Wow, these posts were fun to read. I spend a good deal of time traveling out west and into the Alleghenies and Appalachians. Even some of the states I don't travel to like Michigan or Wisconsin sound like virtual paradises.

I am a bit confused that when I try to get a camping spot in my state, Florida, there is no room. This is because, a lot of you guys, claiming that your state is the best and greatest paradise in this hemisphere, are all in Florida for the winter. LOL!

Some of us in the more northern states know which side of our bread is buttered on. It gets cold & snowy so we grace the southern states with our presence in the winter. You're lucky to have us and our $$$$

Lol. I talk a big talk and do love it here. BUT the winter is brutal and it's not rare for me to be wearing my crabby pants as a result ;-). 30 degrees with 22 degree windchill here right now. We're crazy enough to think this is mild.

Oh, I definitely agree. Thank goodness for snowbirds. I'll take my chances with finding a place to put my trailer and be happy to have you and your business.

I hope my earlier post did not seem like I was ungrateful, if it did, I apologize. Sometimes my humor is a bit 'tongue and cheek'.

As you can see from my photography, I am an observer and admirer of wild beauty in America. I have found that wild beauty in every state that I have visited. I am pretty new at trailer camping and am very impressed with the kindness and great attitudes that I find in my fellow campers all across this country.

You can find cactus growing in the south and polar bears in the north.
My wife likes to say "We live in gods country" at the base of the Bruce Peninsula and this is still only southern Ontario.
I was wrong Ontario is as the row flies 1746 km South to north and 2907 km East to West or 1085 mi tall and 1806 mi wide
ops and least I had the north south almost right

We can go south for 218 mi or 351 km from or door step as the crow flies to Point Pelee and the take a boat to the island and go North for a lot more

My home state, Iowa, has the I-35 which goes from Canada to Mexico, and the I-80 which goes from California to New York. Can't beat that!

It was above 50 Deg F in my part of northern Wisconsin yesterday . There is no snow on the ground , no ice on the lakes , geese and ducks are swimming in the ponds. If we just had mosquitoes it would be summer

Rain, lots of rain. People with web feet, wrinkled skin from the water. Rain and more rain.

Yes! WI these past weeks has been unpredictable.

A few days of 50 degrees here too. I had a fly in the house ....but no Mosquitos! I think all things living are confused. I swear I saw geese flying north.

I almost feel like I should have been mowing the lawn this past weekend :-)

I live in North Dakota. We are not without plenty to see and do here contrary to some opinions.
forests? A few but not very big.
lakes? Potholes and sloughs. Duck factory of the country
moutains?, sort of. The Turtle Mts.
It's on the Canadian border where we have the International Peace Garden. Beautiful place especially if you like flowers.
International Peace Garden United States and Canada
fishing?...World class walleye and Northern pike fishing. Devils Lake, Lake Sakakawea. Both places have lots of camping.
hunting? Wonderful hunting. Some of the best duck hunting in the country. Also lots of grouse and pheasants.
boating and canoeing? all sorts.
big water? sort of on Lake Sak & Devils Lake.
coastline? Nope
waterfalls? Just lots of man made dams.
Medora & the Bad Lands in SW ND. World class musical in the summer in Medora.
We have lots of nice state parks.

Oil derricks. If you want to see them don't plan on getting an rv site ANYWHERE NEAR. If you haven't heard about the indoor rv park at Watford City, N.D. google it and take note of thefees.

Had to add my two cents about Utah these are both while-driving pictures out the car window... There are also forests, ski resorts, national parks (Zion?), lakes, desert, sand dunes, friendly people (for the most part), and much more!

I have lived in Wisconsin for 7 years, and have enjoyed camping and traveling around this beautiful state. There are river valleys, awesome glacial formations, Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands to the north, and Lake Michigan and Door County to the east, forests and open fields. So much more left to explore.....
