 One year ago today we left California after 40+ years (37 1/2 in our first house ever) and moved into a completely unsuitable rental unit between the Prescott airport and Antelope Hills Country Club.
 
After almost two months we moved into a house the 15 of October that we bought in Prescott Valley (formerly known as Jackass Flats) and here we'll probably stay.  Got 690 square feet more house, a huge workshop structure in back, and a half acre of land, and all for about 2/3 of what we sold our house in California for.
 
So far we've had visitors from California, Nevada, and Utah come for visits and are expecting a lot more.  May have convinced some to move this way and join us in this marvelous place.
 
Love it here , ain't NEVER going back to live in California.

Congrats Tom... roots are a tough thing to shear, but I can relate...  kinda

Miami was both Birth place & home for the first 38 years of my adolescent, then formative and finally adult life.
planning the move was actually tougher than the actual.... got up and went ...
now it seems just  a relevant memory....

I've set roots here in Central Florida , lived here the past 30 years ...look in wonderment at North Carolina and awe of the old west
In particular Arizona ( Arizona Highways  & a travel or two )
Kinda figure the tap root is embedded at this point to deep to make wanderlust a reality.
I've lived elsewhere and other States  for 4-6 months , location shoots, film jobs and such, but returned to my "sand in shoes region" Central Florida....

Bucket list has Alaska on it... but that only be an experience  Smiley

I was born in Tucson, Arizona. into a USAF family.
Just about every two years of my life we made a major move. Some times close and some times far. It was just a fact of life for us.
At the age of 20 I joined the US Navy and that meant even more travel. I have been in every State in the US, Including Alaska and Hawaii (even before it became a State). Along with 18 Foreign Countries and several other US Territories. 
I got to go places, see things and meet people that I would never have had a chance to do otherwise.
I have no regrets!
However, I am very much a "homebody" now, and don't regret that one bit either.
My best,
 Blair

I  was 72 years old and had been in California for 40 years, 37 in the same house.

The decision was very easy.  I didn't so much leave California as California abandoned me and all my beliefs and then tried to take my money and freedoms and make me feel guilty about it.

When my  time was up in the Navy in '68, . . . I thought about San Diego, . . . Tucson, . . . etc.  Kinda did not want to come back to Ohio, . . . winters and all, . . .

Had to come back and get my Olds convertible, . . . wound up staying a while, . . . got married, . . . been here ever since.  Kinda regretted it a few times, . . . but from what I've been able to read and understand, . . . it seems like the Lord did me good in shooing me back home. 

Still like to visit the southwest, . . . love the food, . . .

May God bless,
Dwight

I'm been looking at houses around Tombstone.  We spend a long weekend visiting and I love the area. 

We could sell out, move from northern Indiana, buy same type of house for 50% less.  And no second story gutters to clean out, no yard to maintain, no leaves to rake and NO SNOW.

Wife cried when I told her my idea.  She has her dream house, friends and family here.  I bought a new snow shovel instead.

Got no plans to go to Tombstone so it doesn't matter.  Besides, we got snow (and sleet, rain hail, and smog) here.. Not much and not often, but we got 'em.

When are you gonna drag your tall, lazy buns down here for a visit?  Huh?  When?

We took a Jeep tour of the surrounding Tombstone countryside.  Driver mentioned snow.

Oh?  Home much do you get, I asked.

Quite a bit.  Sometimes it lasts all they way to the afternoon.

I'd call that a frost!

I hear ya about the winters here in Ohio, but all in all it's not a bad place to live, affordable and very gun friendly. I'm in Northeast Ohio by the big ol' lake up here. I thought about moving to Az. many times but $$$ and family kept me here.

I am 63 now, never lived in one state 20 years or more. Virginia the longest at 17 years. Lived i. The NW for a spell, where i scratched off a big bucketlist item.  I lived and a young boy in Indiana and Ohio. I have no desire to return to any of them. If you include Va., (i do) i have lived better than half my life somewhere in the south. I moved to Alabama, better than a year and a half now. I will be buried here.

Not counting my Army time, in Germany, I've lived in Missouri my whole life, , in Miller and Camden counties. Had family in the area since the 1840s. Lots of other places I'd like to visit, but no desire to move. If I moved north-too cold, south it gets too hot in the summer. East- there's just too many people in the east, and it gets pretty dry if I went west.
