    Move to Arizona?

    Hey arid-Zone guys....

    I have some questions about moving to there lol. Ive had a **** year here in my home state of Colorado to say the least. Unrequested social problems (read:Guy on the couch) have made my life a living hell outside of woman trouble, job problems (Yay I got sexually harassed by my female boss and IT WASNT COOL), social anxiety, Suicidal thoughts etc. Yeah I said OUTSIDE of those things.

    I have a unique opportunity to possibly buy a house in San Tan Valley...I know right, sounds kind of boring. I can get a smoking deal thankfully but the question of what to do when i get there arises. Id be looking for work as im currently unemployed and dont have a well defined career path although I am very qualified. I have reasons for wanting to live there. Cycling, theres lots of it. Wheeling, duh this is a truck forum. Shootin' ****, since Arizona has replaced Kentucky and Tennessee as the patron state of shootin' ****, im an NRA instructor, seems logical.

    Anyone want to chime in on the pitfalls of the place, you know, outside the overbearing mormon presence? Thoughts? Questions, compliments, gripes or conveyances? Thanks all.

    It's hot as balls here
    Lots of jobs in various industries here especially if you don't mind doing customer service stuff, Paypal starts at like $15 an hour and constantly hiring.

    Hot as hell there. Left after a 14 year stint in the real estate development field. Came back up to North Idaho (Coeur d’Alene). Couldn’t find anywhere else better to be if you like the great outdoors!

    San Tan is growing like crazy, but they have their fair share of problems. Just look at the border patrol stats on San Tan and Queen Creek regarding huge increase in drop houses and drugs.

    Lots of Job Opportunities. Some of the easiest and quickest ones to get higher pay is PayPal and godaddy for entry level type positions with no major experience.

    I simply got tired of the crime, the crazies, and the 115-120 Summer Months. No not a few weeks but May through October it seemed! Lol Winter months are awesome. Monsoon season is fun.. and Haboobs... well just make sure your windows are closed

    Interested in hearing about this.

    I wish you the very best in this endeavor. Sometimes a change is exactly what is needed.

    A bit late on the reply here, been a real crap summer for me. I road tripped through NM, AZ, CA, NV, UT, WY and then back through colorado, in that order over the course of 3 weeks. Im looking in the wrong part of the country. The desert sucks in every way imaginable. NM, beautiful, stopped in Raton, stayed a night after having dinner with friends in Santa Fe, too many dirty hippies. Didn't even stop in ABQ, seeing it was enough from the highway before turning my sights west to Tuscon. Much the same in Tuscon, it sucks, hot as all get out at night..I did get to go to the most beautiful public range I have ever seen, $5 to shoot all day at supplied steel. Burned a few thousand rounds between 5 rifles and a fistful of handguns with a buddy from rehab. I kept westward and stopped at my parents place (2nd home) in Palm Springs Ca. Ive been there plenty, done that to death and wouldnt move there if i got paid to do it, stayed a few days and reached my destination in Costa Mesa Ca. I used to live there and theres a good reason we call it Close To Mexico....Witnessed a public spectacle that has to be seen up close to be enjoyed, the ignition of more fireworks than i could have imagined the public could afford. Cemented in my mind that any time spent at Disney Land is a waste of life and better spent pulling weeds or doing manual labor. Got to see some friends, got some ink and headed through Baker into the Mojave Desert, went Wheeling in the dunes with my f150. One of the most beautiful and desolate places I have ever seen. Literally made me cry. Bored and overheated I headed to Parumph, bought some fireworks and headed into the land of the Chosen People (mormons) after a stop in vegas at the Nuclear Weapons Museum. Utah has stunning physical beauty and not much else...Ogden has the best museum in existence, The John Moses Browning Museum with which I have a deep personal tie and got to see what any true Browning enthusiast goes to see, the unreal collection of BHP (if you thought the 1911 you have little taste and experience in my opinion). Exhausted and feeling the need for a real bed and the the feel of my cats fur on my hands, I headed east Via I-80 into the wastelands of Wyoming and stayed a night at a rest stop, wary of people and armed to the teeth lol. Morning brought a short drive to I25, an abrupt right turn and a spin through the northern towns of Colorado before heading home to see the one and only TaCoCaT, master of lazyness and annihilator of soft toys.

    In conclusion, Im moving east. Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia or Virginia, places where my 2A is in tact and deeply respected. Leave the desert to the people who can eek out a living there, im moving where green things grow instead lol.

    I was at the JMB museum in ogden, wearing a Lamb of God shirt (metal band with nothing to do with particular lambs of specific deities) and the docent approached me, knowing the answer he asked "Are you one of the chose ones"? to which I replied "Hail Satan, MotherF***er"! He thrust his hand high in the air, making the sign of the horns and repeated my utterance. It was magical. I found the only non mormon in ogden I suppose.

    Ogden native and Browning decendent here. Plenty of no-mos and ex-mos around. Glad you enjoyed your visit and hail satan! Just remember the 1911 design is a sign that God loves us.

    If you would turn your life over to God and washed your sins away via baptism I can guarantee your "issues" will improve dramatically. It doesn't mean everything will be rosy but it will improve. More God and less satan.
