I'm from the east but lived exclusively out there (arizona) for a while but came back for the grandkids..... I should have stayed there as i really liked it alot....within the next three years will be out there permanently again. I miss the Desert and get out there about twice a year.
I've never had the pleasure of seeing the desert, closest I came was Colorado and California. I will say I loved the drive to San Fransisco and back (15 years ago). Like many work, kids, and life prevent long travel, but that's why we all look forward to retirement, right? We escaped two years ago for a month (with all three kids), it was a miracle that I was able to be away that long from work, but cell phones and the internet helped. We were able to camp the east coast from Massachusetts to Florida and back. When we planned the trip we knew it was a once in a lifetime trip (before the kids head off for college, etc).
I hope that once we retire, if that day ever comes, we will get to see more and more of this great country.
