Now, let's say you're a family who's lived in Florida for generations and has never had occasion to travel up North before. You would not, then, own heavy parkas, hats, knit gloves, etc...right?
So now you're all going up North for winter vacation--not necessarily for skiing/hunting/outdoor purposes, but you'd probably at least go sled-riding once, and in any event would need something to keep you from freezing. So what would be the best way to obtain winter things?
Do shops in Florida sell things like heavy winter coats? Could you persuade a big chain store to special-order them for you? Would it make more sense to order them off the Internet? Or, since large coats take up a lot of space in luggage, would it be more sensible to wait until you've arrived up North to go and buy them?
I just can't think which would be more probable for real-life people to do...any takers?
