I want to be in hardiness zone 9+. I am looking at Salome, Vicksburg, Yucca and other towns in Mohave, La Paz and Yuma county.

I have lived in Tucson and do not mind the heat. (In fact, I like it)
My main concern is people. I am a recluse and will keep to myself, only leaving my property for supplies and when I need to go out. Would I need to worry much about my house being broken into? (I plan to live out in the middle of nowhere) Would I, overall, be safe?

Please tell me anything I should be aware of.

Who's going to bury you when you die?

Well, if you want to be out in the middle of nowhere you picked a good part of the state to do it. Now Yucca on the other hand is on the I-40 so it may not be as isolated as you want. But there is also Nothing out there. You might still find a little Love and Hope though. Further down a bit east and towards the border you may ask Why.

A bit more serious, I don't know how it really is as I've not lived in that forsaken part of this state, but I did read some pretty horrific stories about 20 years or so ago when meth cooks used to use that part of the state. I think with the cheap stuff coming from Mexico though, many have quit cooking out there.

It is Arizona. Buy a gun. Maybe more. I would probably always carry if I lived out there as I would imagine that many there would also. However, I probably wouldn't lock my doors much out there either. I don't here. You would have to visit. I do know it can be harsh. And very desolate.

Keep an eye on the Interstate 11 developments. When they finalize the route, buy something along the route.

The paradox is you have much more privacy in a densely-populated city. You have all the products and services you wish, but do not have to socialize with anyone. You are anonymous.

But good luck living out in the middle of nowhere knowing no one. You need to know your neighbors, for information, help ...and survival.

The problem with a place in the middle of nowhere? Go anywhere and it's fair game for creeps and meth heads that steal anything that isn't bolted down. Consider Golden Valley. I recommend making friends with neighbors so you can look after each other. I read there is a big aquifer underneath the area. Not too far from stores and lakes. (Kingman) I thought about living there. Dirt roads for going offroading was what I liked and boating at Mohave and Lake Mead.

Bouse is also a decent area for a recluse. But I think anywhere you choose in that part of the state will do you fine.
