More sunny days, even if some are cold Winter days.
I grew up on “the dry side” of BC (Northern most reaches of the Sonoran Desert), and love the green of the coast. I go back to where I grew up, and within 48 hours my nose is bleeding from the dry air. I’m sure I’d get used to it again, but I’m in no rush.

Mags, if you do start looking at AZ, check out Payson and Prescott as well. I’ve been all over that state on multiple occasions and those two spots stand out as places that I as a west coast guy could live. Prescott is especially beautiful, and has a cool feel to it. If you want to hunt, Payson is more secluded and forested.

we are sitting in our camper watching Hurricane Michael coverage as the storm moves through our home area and will soon be on our way to where we are in southeastern coastal Virginia .... just got off the phone with a friend who is camped near Asheville, NC ===> https://koa.com/campgrounds/asheville-east/ .... half of his campground is flooded by rushing water from the Swannanoa River .... Michael has been one heck of a storm

Thanks. We were in Prescott in the Spring. Kids in-laws are there. Yes it's pretty, but Sedona was the best. Haven't been to Payson yet. Secluded and forested is what I would be looking at. But wife likes the Sedona red/orange hills and rock features.

Mags: Payson has red rocks, but not like Sedona. Mind you it doesn’t have moronic tourists everywhere either! I lived in Whistler for over 25 years, so not being in a tourist town is appealing to me!

Ya Sedona has crazy tourist traffic, even when you'd think it would be not so bad cause of kids still being in school (Spring time). Main road up from Phoenix backs up coming in for miles. Seems to flow well, but slow, with the new round-abouts. Payson, I think, we'll check out when we go next time. Thanks for that suggestion. I haven't been to Whistler, but one of our sons has, and he commented on the tourist traffic there.

Well, it’s sunny again, and according to my long range forecast it’s supposed to stay sunny and between 61* and 55* for the next 2 weeks! I’ll gladly take that if it comes!

Got to go fire up the espresso machine now, let the Weimaraner out to patrol the property and then head to the post office to pick up the 3rd attempt at Henry getting the correct front sight on my SGC. Hope the old “3rd time’s the charm” thing plays out!
