OK here's a second list:- Albuquerque- Las Vegas- Phoenix- TucsonThat's pretty interesting. When we decided to move for our early retirement a few years ago, we also made up a list of possibilities. Here was our list:- Albuquerque- Las Vegas- Sacramento- TucsonI lived in Phoenix for a few years, and didn't like it that much. It was TOO hot, and the traffic was terrible. I don't know if they've fixed the latter or not (this was about 15 years ago), but I'm pretty sure it's still too hot. ;-) Tucson & LV are supposed to average about 5-10 degrees cooler in the summer; they might still be too hot, though.We started at the top of our list (which was not arranged alphabetically as above), and never got past the first city: Sacramento. Not exactly inexpensive, but we managed to find a place that was priced just a bit above the house we sold. We could have found a similar house for about $100k - $125k less in the other 3 cities, but we felt we had to give up too much for that. We like being closer to the ocean, the more moderate climate (well, compared to LV & Tucson), and being just 6-7 hours from LA (family). Being 2-4 hours from Tahoe, Yosemite, Sequoia, Mt Shasta is also a big plus. In short, we love it here. Someday, though, I'm going to get around to checking out those other 3 places. :-)Ken
