Check your shoes for scorpions before you put 'em on. Really.

I like Phoenix, though.

A daughter of a friend of my mom's when we lived there nearly died from a scorpion bite from a scorpion hiding in a shoe, and they had lived there forever. Not something to take lightly, haha.

Oh don't get me wrong, I am always paranoid when the thought of camping or hiking. I don't really worry so much at my apartment as I have been here for a long time. I have never had a sighting. I did have a black widow try to claim hold of a pole next to my covered parking spot. It was a battle there for a bit. You would have thought it and I were like batman and joker. :shock:

Yeah, I almost forgot about this thread as well.

It is pretty nice down here. I like the weather minus the 3 or 4 months of heat. One can always get away north to the mountains or the 5 or so hours out west to San Diego plus I don't mind the occasional drive south into the desert as I get to Tucson or Tombstone.

Last time I was in Phoenix was for a Nascar Race and lots of "partaking" about ten years ago! The area is awesome to visit, though I have no frame of reference as far as living in Phoenix proper. I lived in New Mexico near the Arizona border as a kid and at the time I simply loved playing in the desert. You could just take off walking in damn near any direction you please and see awesome stuff. Did a lot of Jackrabbit hunting out there. But I personally like to be able to see the mountains covered in Snow. I just had a meeting in Portland last week and driving back I could see Mt. Hood, Mt. Saint Helens, and Mt. Adams all clear as day. That practically never happens for me.

Oh yeah Mt. Saint Helens! I remember seeing that on my flight back from Seattle. It brought back memories of me in elementary school in Michigan having to do a school project after the eruption.

One thing people don't realize of the central valley in Arizona is how spread out it is from the west side of the valley to the far east side of the valley. With only one single line of metro rail, it is a lot of driving depending on which side you live and what you want to get to.

I remember the Giants and Patriots fans being surveyed after their trip here for the Super Bowl. They said they enjoyed their time down here but DAMN if everything that was going Super Bowl event wise weren't so far apart. :thirishdrinkers:

I wasn't sure if I would go there or the location in Chandler that is meant for fellow hawks fans or if I would remain in a dark cave lit only by the light of a single flat screen tv away from all fellow humans. :2: :snack: :thirishdrinkers:
