Globe gets more monsoonal flow and its location against 8000 ft Pinal Peak attracts solid nonsoons. All relative..102 in Globe usually as hot as it gets in june before monsoon season.

La Mesa and points west I agree for the most part.
Dude, it would be a tough adjustment to live in an RV... That is quite reasonable pricing though. The $1,000 apartments nowadays are studios in ghetto complexes. El Cajon doesn't nearly deserve the bad rep it has earned but some of those smaller complexes around between Ballantyne and 2nd St. can be really rough places! I officially never want to see a roach again . A really decent 1 bedroom in El Cajon starts at about $1,300 right now. The RV route would actually be awesome if one could do it.

ElCajones I could easily enjoy East County as well. Besides some wind , Campo to Jacumba not bad at all for rural high desert living.

My memory of Globe was work related in the sun last summer. I got such a bad sunburn up there that I got a fever later on. Gotta forgive me for not noticing the temp was 115 in the valley and 104 there that day .

A commute from Jacumba would be evil.... You should look at Ramona. Still a total gem in SD. If I ever get the chance to move back, that's where I'm going.

Ironically the high desert being closer to the sun can do that despite cooler temps. Love DeMarcos in Globe. Best Italian joint in the state and a second location now in Superior.

Respect your knowledge and will not let me rep you. Hope the Chargers can get the Convention Center deal finalized. They are greedy though...MV perfect location with the trolley and not the annoying cramped one way streets near Gaslamp.

That's what I've been screaming. Mission Valley is a central and ideal location. Downtown SD is a nightmare as it is.

If I had to live someplace else, I'd pick Sedona, then Prescott, then Payson but always in Arizona.
I've been living here for almost 5 years now and I could never imagine living anywhere other than Arizona. The weather, the topography and landscape, the sunrises and sunsets, the mountains, Sedona, Jerome, Bisbee, Prescott, Payson, the rim, all the rivers and lakes, the weather, the heat, the monsoons, yes, I can't imagine anywhere else I'd ever like to live. It's not a few things that make me like it here, it's everything and it's so hard to explain and understand but it makes sense to me.
I go to sleep at night happy that I've enjoyed the day so much and I wake up every morning excited to see another Arizona morning and wondering what cool and fun things I'm going to experience today.

This place makes me happy. It's that simple.
