Yep.... another summer has come and gone. Rosa gave us quite a bit of rain in the metro area and that really helped with temps. This was my 20+ year in the desert and for all practical purposes, I've lived in this state longer than anywhere else, including where we were raised. The next nine months will be almost pure bliss as we'll be the weather-wise-envy of those who suffer 'winter'.

Tij, I don't understand your question about the proximity to Mexico.

K7, yes! The really good weather starts now. Last year was wonderful. It was so nice to be away from the cold and snow. So, so glad I moved here.

Hello adventuregurl I live in the very small town of Huachuca City which is about 15 minutes from the shopping in Sierra Vista.

.
2 weeks ago, I drove to Nogales, MX, bought 2 pair of prescription sunglasses, 2 pair for $100! Also got my teeth cleaned and bought some Combivent ($31 compared to $300) and not wanting to go to a Pain Management Clinic to see if I was qualified for any pain meds. I got a script from a Dr. (charged me $3.50) and I got my pain meds. I rarely use them, if ever, but I want them around in case things get worse or I have a painful day. Also bought some outside art work for my mobile home. I'm finding out any number of seniors in my mobile home community go south for their medications and dental work.

Among the reasons I moved to Tucson. Proximity to Mexico!

Being I still smoke, not much, and all my relatives don't smoke, or have quit, to deter them from visiting I tell then (a lie) I still smoke in my house.

I'll have to check it out one of these days. I never have gotten a passport as I haven't traveled outside the US. I'll have to get one. I don't have many medications but have been out of my pain ones for quite some time. I try to do without but sometimes, especially if I do too much, the back pain lays me up the next day.

I do need artwork though. I left all my pictures in Minnesota because I want an Arizona or desert theme. My pictures were all ocean and water themes and I thought I would miss being around water too much.

Thanks for the insight and information.

Despite the scaremongers. you Do Not need a passport to get in and out of a Mexican Border town. if fearful, ask a Customs Agent before entering and tell them: I don't have a Passport, will this be a problem in re-entering Arizona?

I do have a Passport, but I've asked a number of times: What If I had forgotten my Passport at home?

Answer: No problema!

I've stood in line in Nogales and ran into a number of people who cross frequently, with no Passport.

I had Sierra Vista and Sahuarita mixed up, I thought you lived in Sahuarita, and if that was the case I'd pick you up on my next trip down there. I'm from MN too! Rochester area!

Thanks Deelighted, I need to take a trip down there, I've just been to Benson, Toombstone, St. Davids (I think it was), Patagonia, Bisbee and Nogales. I do like your climate better than the Verde Valley.

Do you still love it? Are rentals still reasonable?
