Thought this might be a good idea...we'll see.
Love them or hate them, Snowbirds are a part of Florida life. They bring much needed dollars to the area, etc, and some of them end up moving to Florida down the road.

What are some tips Snowbirds may have for other Snowbirds who will soon be making the annual journey..........Things to pack, things not to pack, how to do it, when to secure your rental, etc. Perhaps hints on how to continue your banking, bill paying, prescriptions, etc.....

Just thought it would be an interesting, different thread. Hints and helps....no bashing allowed on this thread......

One trend I've noticed is that more Snowbirds are using laptops to keep in touch with their e-mails, banking, etc. More places on the road, etc are offering wifi.

Yes, Frank..I believe that today's snowbirds have it much easier than those of yesteryear...laptops, cell phones, fax machines, video conferencing, no long distance charges on many phone services, etc. That all makes keeping two homes apart more amenable, I think.
