Those temps (50-70) sound real good. I’d probably melt at 88 degrees right now, but just like those who acclimate to Alaska, the same is true for newcomers to Arizona. After a few seasons of your temps, I’d adjust to that new “normal”. Our area, in the Interior, can reach temps to the 90’s in the summer months. Folks are usually surprised at that.

90’s is probably pretty hot for ya’ll. We are down on the Colorado River, if you get up into the mountains, Flagstaff, etc., it is 20 - 30 degrees cooler in the summer than it is here. Flagstaff is very popular with people down in Phoenix for summer get away homes. Before the housing market crashed the cost of housing around Flagg was getting pretty high, I don’t know how they have fared in the slowdown, certainly not as bad as Phoenix. We’ve held up here somewhat because of snowbirds taking advantage to buy winter homes vs just renting.

Thanks for that info. I’ve wondered about the housing market down there. Have thought about just buying another RV to leave down there, but have also thought about buying a winter home.

One issue I have is cities and crowds. We live out in the bush and love our remote lifestyle. I know we can’t have this there, but hope to find a place off the beaten path. We enjoy people, just not thousands all at once. ;)

I voted for Romney for Governor here in the People's Republic. He was an excellent governor until he decided to...
a.)run for President
b.)install Romneycare
c.)pass the buck on same sex marriage

If people want to promote him here I don't care. But when they get shouted down and eventually shown the door I'm not going to miss them. They can be a vicious lot.....

We are in a small town of approximately 50,000 people. A lot of the snowbirds like it because we have the lake and they can fish in the winter and it’s only an hour from Laughlin where they can go for a day of entertainment if they want... and two hours from Las Vegas. Flagstaff is a university town, now a large population but very busy because of the college and the summer visitors to the Grand Canyon. I could never go back to living in a large town and we NEVER go down to Phoenix.
