Been wanting to do the move for years but planning it for a few months. But man time is flying by. With only 18 days left there is so much stuff I need to do as well as want to do before leaving all my friends and family. It's gonna be scary but i'm hoping for the best.
Good luck, I would never want to live in CA personally (too expensive).

I've found to like my new homes because each and every city has its' fun things to do. I never truly hated a place, not enough to force me to move.

I was recently offered a job in Phoenix but turned it down because the city seems so desolate from everything. I'm interested, what is it that you didn't like?

I've done this a few times. Moved from Denver to Dallas and back to Denver. Absolutely hated it there and it never once felt like home. Moved back to Denver feeling grateful to be back. However, in the two years since I've been back all the stuff I despised has resurfaced and is now magnified. Need to leave this state again for good! Any suggestions?

Also moved back and forth a few times from Vegas. Left two times due to job situations and layoffs. Absolutely loved living there though!

I'm interested too. Considering relocating there myself.

Also interested, as I am curious as to what "desolate from everything means." One of the appeals to a lot of people that live here is that it is so close to so much for weekends away. Las Vegas, LA, San Diego, Sedona, and many other places are really pretty close, as well as a lot of areas that are not cities but great places to explore nature. You can fly to Vegas in like 45 minutes, drive there in about 4-4.5 hours, for instance.

I think Phoenix is neat! I don't understand that post, either. If I could deal with the climate, it would be on my retirement list, but I can't deal with that sort of heat, at least at this point in my life.

I am still waiting for it to get hot!

People here complain about the humidity, but I have yet to really feel it. Dew points near 60 seem muggy to those here, but they are a breeze to me, who is used to dew points reaching the low-mid 70 easy in the summer. 30% humidity is still a dry day to me!

Not a problem at all. And lots of thunderstorms this time of year, though they roll through fast and are more widespread than in the midwest. No grey, dreary all-day rain type of days here. And no gnats and fewer mosquitoes!
