I agree. Much better places to live in AZ.
Depends what you want Dude. Personally I'd rather live in Tucson, but my family are all still in Phoenix.. But then it's hard to say when I joined The Navy (from Tucson) it had a pop of .5mil when I left Phoenix the pop. was right around 1 mil. I-10 started way out west and 17 was the only freeway in town..
Kinda weird that where we used to go party in High School out in the desert is now all developed.. When I left, Bell road was the north end and Union Hills had still being paved with nothing on it, powerline road was a dirt maintenance road with power lines running the length of it.. And Luke AFB was "out in the middle of nowhere.".... Damn I got old.
