The only trouble with year rounding in PHX or TUS is that at 100+ degrees in the summer, the Casita A/C is barely able to keep up. At higher elevations where the summers are pleasant, the sub freezing temps in the winter will get your plumbing. If you found a job that would permit living in both places in the appropriate seasons, that would be perfect.

As someone who spent 6 years in Tucson, I agree with the above. Phoenix, where it is even more congested, is supposed to be even hotter. The issue with the "dry" climate is that during the summer with the hottest temps, the monsoons come in and the humidity soars with night time temperatures being above 80 degrees even out in the county without asphalt/cement in the area. September in an RV was unbearable for us through about January which was pleasant. We moved into a mobile home shortly after arriving there in September, within 2 weeks actually! A/C doesn't work as well in dry climates either, thus the reason many previously used "swamp" coolers. When it is 114 degrees outside, "dry" means nothing.

It was great for our trip through the southwest during September and October.
The week before we went it was 100* plus, but fall fell and it was great.
SO for two months, at least it will be great/

I still haven't figured out what "FT" in the title stands for.

I'm going to go to NV for a few months, then go down to AZ. I wont get a job until this CV19 stuff is over, so I guess it doesn't matter where exactly.

I find these threads interesting . It echo’s the tales of men
(Hobos ) riding the rails around the US during the great depression and living off the land and government handouts
The whole concept sounded like a great adventure when I was 12 but now for me it holds absolutely no appeal .
Being near our family returns far more to our lives than saving a couple of bucks but to each their own
