So, I have a big announcement to make: I will be moving to Arizona after Christmas. The move will probably be sometime in January. I am super excited because it's my favorite state. The rock-solid red state of Arizona is about to get even redder!

I love Arizona. I particularly love Tucson. Wish I lived there.

You seem to move often. Which state has been your favorite, and why?

Arizona has always been my favorite. I love the natural beauty, the climate, the fascinating history, the amazing wildlife, the people, and the diehard conservative politics of the Grand Canyon State.

If you haven't been to Sedona, I highly recommend a visit. Absolutely beautiful.

Oh, I plan to. I haven't been to Sedona in more than a decade. I'm definitely going to want to go there again.

I'm happy for you! I lived in AZ for an eternity. I have a place in Payson but live in CA. I still have a ton of friends there. You never know, this could be a network connection, it's a small world. I wish you all the best and coolness.

Well, I wish you were coming to Texas instead, but Arizona is a good choice. If you go to the Phoenix area, maybe you can get together with BamaGirl for a Coke or something. She's a wonderful Christian woman (in case you don't already follow her), and everybody needs a friend when they move to a new city. I know there are other users in Arizona, too. GonzoBoy is out there somewhere, and he's a great guy.
But I hope you brace yourself for the triple-digit temperatures in the summer, and the giant dust storms, called "haboobs" or something like that, which can be terrifying when you first see them.

I didn't mention Axl, because he's leaving Arizona and moving to New York. I know there are others, but I simply can't remember right now.

Thanks tlaney! Don't worry, I'm well prepared for the desert heat. You get used to it pretty fast. I lived in Tucson from 2001 until 2006, so I know what summers are like there. I will be moving to the Phoenix metro area this time around. Cave Creek, to be specific.

Well, I live in Odessa, Texas, which is in West Texas, so I'm used to the temperatures too!

It will certainly fit my politics quite well. Arizona is a heavily conservative state and the Phoenix Metro area (where I will be living) was one of only two major metropolitan areas in the country that stood out as a conservative stronghold in this election.

You'll be moving here at the same time I'm leaving. I'm moving to NY right after new years. Can't wait to leave tbh.

Thanks congrats to you too. Honestly I don't know much about cave creek. I've driven through it a couple of times but have never eaten there. Some good scottsdale restaurants are grimaldis pizzeria, sol Cocina, Vinburger, malees Thai restaurant, jewel of the crown (indian), manuels, cien agave, Kona grill

Honestly AZ, the Phoenix Valley is a great place to live. I am just bitter because I grew up in the northeast and just want to get back home. But I'm sure you'll love living there.

Thank you, xxxceo! I should definitely fit in there. Arizona is Trump country! It's also been named this year's most gun-friendly state. That Wild West spirit still lives on in the Grand Canyon State.

God no! I can't wait to vote McCain and Flake out during the next primary season and replace them with some hardcore conservatives.

Oh, sure. I'm moving to Cave Creek. It's in Maricopa County and it is considered part of the Phoenix metro area. It's north of Scottsdale.
