Mobile homes are thankfully restricted to trailer parks in Santa Cruz County...

I have found that the only thing you can really do is try it out. I first investigated Arizona because a person I vaguely knew had moved here.

I'm not in love with Sierra Vista, mainly because the clinic I go to keeps referring me to Tucson doctors. So, it makes sense for me to move to Tucson. Also, I have not found a good car repair shop. Thankfully my car has only needed oil changes but the couple I have gone to have tried to talk me into elaborate, costly expenditures. I'm hoping I'll be able to find an honest mechanic in Tucson.

Before I moved here from small town Minnesota, my mechanics there, who had serviced the car from day one, gave it a thorough going over. The car was in A-1 condition when I left and nothing has changed. I am paranoid about the mechanics here though.

Three different garages, three different opinions of the things I should have done. All expensive, none needed in Minnesota.

Well, it's good to know you like Arizona enough to stay there even if you need to leave Sierra Vista.

I think you'll enjoy and appreciate Tucson far more than Sierra Vista, and there's lots of nice, respectable, well-maintained apartment complexes right here in Central Tucson. Let me know when you arrive and I'll even help you unload and get resettled. And that's a promise! After all, we're both refugees from MN! Get your Senior Bus pass and every ride will only be 75 cents.

I saw a post in this thread that mentioned Snake removal. I was in Green Valley for the weekend checking out Quail Creek. My realtor said she hadn't seen a snake after 2 yrs of living in the Tucson area. (she doesn't live in QC tho)

I was thinking that homes next to a wash, or undeveloped land, or next to the golf course, or even new builds are more likely to see snakes. If I'm in the older section of the development with block walls around the property, are my chances pretty slim for having snake visitors? I currently live in Las Vegas …. scorpions are my headache here.

I would say your logic is pretty spot on.....but that is not a guarantee that you will never see a snake if you live in town with a brick wall. You will be much less likely to see one in that case, but again, no guarantee!!!

I live in a very well developed area of Green Valley and we had a rattlesnake appear in our driveway last month. We live in their neighborhood and need to accept that.

The young lady from the GVFD arrived in about 10 minutes and removed it. It was relocated into one of the arroyos.

I didn't say it wouldn't/couldn't happen; but more likely to happen in the the areas I mentioned.
So you had one last month …. how many since you have lived there ?
