The Snow Birds (retired boomers) are beginning to be restless. A few fly south early, wanting to get in that extra bit of sun. Many have been stuck in the snow in early October and learned the lessons taught by Mother Nature. The cautious travelers along with those that love the second home as much as the first leave early. Migration and talk of migration fills the hearts and minds of America's retired population.

I cannot explain to those that don't see the wonder of the road. They just disdain more vacation. Too costly, no enough time, my wife's back hurts...and the list goes on and on! All I can think is what a shame.
DREAM VACATION...USING TIME SHARES
We have a timeshare and can get bonus time (i.e. overnight lodging in a condo at about $40 per night) during the shoulder of the season. Because we invested in this type of ownership, we have been able to travel and stay in beautiful accommodations owned by our timeshare company. We travel with a laptop computer so we can take advantage of those online coupons and golf deal. We have learned to travel in luxury but do it on our terms.
This year I am dreaming of a short visit to the wine country of the Napa Valley and maybe a trip down the coast of California.
I would like to stay in Windsor, California for a couple of days and then go south through San Francisco and stay in one of our timeshare locations just outside of China Town. We could then travel south to Pismo Beach north of Los Angeles and spend a day or two in that part of California. We have never been there. Our next stop would be in the Palm Springs area where we can choose from two locations...or just take the one that is open.
Sedona, Arizona...another dream location on the way!
We might play golf while we are there...why not if we can get a good price on golf. Fall is perfect for people that love to play luxury courses but don't want to pay the inflated price courses charge during high season. This is the time of year when golf courses in Southern California and Arizona over seed their courses. Putting greens are not wonderful but the beauty of the green courses make up for that.
