Winter would be OK if it ended promptly after Christmas and the temperatures would climb to 72 by New Years. But it don't work that way. My plan-like so many other Midwesterners-is to migrate southward until I find a better climate. I leave this morning on what will be the maiden voyage for the aluminum and vinyl escape module.
The manly, adventurous, part of me feels as if I'm somehow cheating and whishes I were traveling on two wheels. The other part of me, the part that doesn't like to shiver for hours at a time, wake up in a cold tent, pee in plastic bottles and wonder if the next icy overpass will be the one that sends me skidding across the pavement, is just fine with it.
How could I ever leave this winter wonderland and snow-covered heat source? Easily!
