Snowbirding Tips

 10 SNOWBIRDING TIPS

1. Have a Plan: It sounds obvious, but if you don’t plan ahead, it’s likely even a seasoned winter traveler will forget something obvious. Write down everything you have to do before you leave, and then start mapping out your travels so you don’t miss something cool along the way – the RoadTrippers App (available at the Apple App Store and for GooglePlay) is also a very handy companion.

2. Take Your Time: The only race you have to run here it to beat the snow. Be sure you take the time to enjoy the journey and leave plenty of time to explore unexpected “finds” as you go.

3. Lock Up: Did you shut the water off? Do you have a friend to check the house periodically? Is someone taking in the mail and door flyers? They’re small things, but they can lead to big problems if not done.

4. Have Your Paperwork: You don’t want to get to your destination and find out that medical records you may need were left in the file cabinet at home. It’s also a good idea to notify your bank and your credit card companies that you’ll be away, so those charges from South Florida don’t sound the alarm.

5. Take Your Prescriptions: Be sure you have all of your prescriptions filled. And remember to carry your medicines in their original drug store containers with the labels.

6. Don’t Expire: Speaking of important documents, be sure your driver’s license and/or passport aren’t set to expire while you’re away.

7. Share Your Itinerary: Don’t keep your travel plans a secret with friends and family. And be sure to carry an easily accessible copy of emergency contact information just in case you run into trouble and can’t speak for yourself.

8. Pack Light: If this is your first foray South, we guarantee that you are packing too much stuff! Most  campgrounds are all well equipped with RVing and camping essentials, so only pack what you need to get you to your winter destination. The rest, you can get when you arrive.

9. Make Sure You’re Covered: Check with your insurance agent to make sure everything is up-to-date with your RV insurance, including your tow vehicle.

10. Be Alarmed: Even if you have a friend checking on your property, it’s a good idea to have an alarm company contract too. And be sure the friend knows what to do if storms or high wind cause damage that needs immediate attention.
