Do any LCO's go south for the Winter?

Just wondering if any LCO's go South or relocate during the Winter months to work. I have a secure night job year around but the thought of relocating to another place during the off season has some appeal to it. I just thinking out loud and probably would never do this but I would like to hear from any one that does something a little crazy like this during the off season. Work in landscaping in Florida, help rebuild New Orleans, get on a crab boat in Alaska, be the lead truck driver in a convoy in Iraq (yea right), etc. Just a wild thought but I would like some input just the same.

The ONLY crazy thing I do in the winter is plow snow. Its crazy cuz I dont have a snow plow. Nope. Just a blue light and the will the be out there acting like a snow plower person. Other than the no plow thing, I am pretty good at it.

Oh and yes, I usually hit the orlando or destin area the last week of march.

I'd like to go south and work for someone landscaping, etc in the winter. But sometimes there is snow to plow up here. Last winter we had about 2 weeks between the last mowings and plowing snow.

My wife and I are headed south this winter, but it sure is'nt for work purposes. Spending a month in south beach between thanksgiving and xmas. Getting away for the winters is what allows me to come back each year fresh, both physically as well as mentally. Working year round would feel too much like a REAL JOB.
