I don't really doubt that you don't like dry air, because I do not think you're lying! But I am extremely curious to know exactly what you find "tough" about it.
My skin itched. It was horrible. But that's just me, not everyone.

Thank you, Meo, for that information. Now your posts make sense to me. Wow, yes, that would be a real problem! That particular problem just never occurred to me. We learn a lot from each other on this board.

Yes, and dry eyes and nose are also a concern , at least in AZ. I pretty much have a vaporizer running in my kitchen/FR all day and another in the bedroom at night. You also need tons of moisturizer to keep your skin from getting really dry and wrinkly too ! Luckily we have had some humid days here last summer, but it's minimal.

A word of caution. AZ is a pretty popular retirement destination, especially by those who lived and worked along the 'northern tier' or the country. One thing to keep in mind if you like doing 'stuff' outside is to take care to remain properly hydrated. Since in a warm, low-humidity environment, one's sweat as a result of the body's 'work' evaporates, you don't think you are sweating and take the visual clue to re-hydrate. It is very easy to become dehydrated in a dry, warm area, which leads to all kinds of welcomed, and potentially physically dangerous side effects. Those moving into such an area might not have a clue.

I've been reading up on Joan of Arc. She was Noah's wife.

We spent many months in Tucson and Phoenix because of the Air Force. We would run in the early evening and it was strange that we never developed a sweat. Just a glowing feeling. So yea, drink water!

Has anyone seen Robyn55 post recently? It seems like the last time she posted was just after the hurricane damaged her house.

Lizard people? The British royal family as reptiloids who eat human flesh? Too bizarre to even contemplate, you say?

Well, read all about it right here on City-Data. See post #5 in the "Legal Cannibilism...." thread in the Self-Sufficiency and Preparedness Forum.

Just when I thought I had seen everything after six and a half years here.
