We are retired and kids are gone, could certainly afford to do the same.

So DW and I must be oddballs, in that we stay in NJ during the winter!

1/ Fear of getting stranded at an airport during a winter storm.
2/ Fighting the hoards of other northern snowbirds in places like Florida or Arizona... restaurants jammed, traffic, etc..
3/ Worrying about our property up north when those winter storms/frigid temps hit.

I don't have trouble shoveling snow (exercise!), still go to the gym 4 times a week, read, cook healthy food, etc.. guess it would be nice to be in some warm weather during the winter, but enjoy looking forward to spring, summer here.

I dunno.. what do you think?
You earned your retirement, good for you.
Since I love to ski, and it's very inexpensive for up to 5 visits at Boreal with the Auburn Ski Club, I think I would rather go skiing and stay in the Mountains part of the time
