It's still there, and we're still involved. Just decided that I need a new environment for a few years.

So lucky, PHX is dope. If y'all ever go on a quick road trip of AZ though, I'd suggest up around Flagstaff, so damn beautiful.

Usually, when a guy makes a statement like this, there is usually a woman, or lack thereof, involved in his decision. :mrgreen:

nothing to do with a woman. everything to do with gaining some new experiences in new environments.

Phoenix sounds nice. San Diego too. If I were to skip town it'd probably be to one of those places. Or Italy.

I was stationed there in the military from 89-93

The best thing about Phoenix was Zia records and getting out of town to Sedona or Flagstaff! :D

living on the far west side of town I enjoyed the outdoors stuff alot, hiking and rappelling at white tanks, endless mountain biking, shooting guns and riding dirt bikes, quads and sandrails, paintballing and pick up games of volleyball almost every night !

The monsoon storms throughout august and sept at 4pm (almost like clockwork) were amazing, 2 inches of rain in a couple of hours then by 9pm it was all dry again, the summer heat lightning was fantastic to watch also.

In the 5 years I lived there I did not enjoy the city of Phoenix or the bugs.

I truly miss Zia records, I have never found a music shop since that was so so good !

They got rattlers down there though, right? That might be enough to keep me away.

I was in PHX a couple years ago for my job. I liked it a lot, and I have some family there too. I wouldn't mind living there at all. Are you sure as a west sider you'll be able to handle the heat?

The problem for me was it dried me out so bad when I would visit the northwest I would leave with pneumonia or at least a bad cold.

As stupid as it sounds it is a dry heat

not to rag on ya john, but i think im gonna buy some stock in high spf sunscreen.

john is a red head. burns very easy. i remember one summer, he had a jeep wrangler, we took it out to the river for some fun in the sun, and he eft the top on (on a 90 degree day) because he didnt want to get burned on the drive. haha. many many other times he wouldnt want to do anything in the summer til later in the day for fear of a sunburn.

love ya man, stay cool, and lathered up! :th2thumbs: :lol:

How true is the dry heat thing there? When I was there it was middle of September and over 100. It was dry then and didn't bother me. Felt just like the Tri-Cities, but I was told by the locals that in the summer it's hotter and more humid.

I worked the ramp at Luke Air Force Base in temps above 120, which with running F-16's the ambient temp was over 145 in traditional camo you would come off the ramp and your face would be white as the sweat would dry and leave salt all over your face. Yeah during monsoon season humidity would be a factor for a few hours but it would quickly dry up.

Nasty. Sounds like when I was in the Persian Gulf. Something like 165 w/heat index. I've never sweat so much in my life. You'd literally have a puddle under you after a few minutes.

So at least I know PHX couldn't be that bad.

If you are in Arizona, here is the main group and bar to see the Seahawks- https://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/ari ... rs?fref=ts


I have lived in Chandler Arizona since November 1995 working at Intel since December 4, 1995 through all the ups and downs in the microchip computer field.

I don't mind the dry heat. One can drive 1 hour or 2 north for the weekend to cool off if it gets that bad.

It is 3 or so months and the fall/winter more than makes up for it. :0190l:

Dude, Ian, it's different here... I enjoy being in the sun here... weird huh? The heat here in the summer is VERY dry for the most part... that kind of heat when you open up the oven and it blasts you in the face... I like it ;P I was there last weekend Tattooed! I met a whole group of people who just moved here all at the same time... we sat to the right of the bar at some tables in front of a TV. I was wearing a Sherman jersey... if you're there this sunday, come say hi! I highly doubt you'll run into rattlers in this urban sprawl Zeb! come check it out...

Yeah, you would have to go walking on the various trails by the nearby mountains to possibly run into rattlers. You can always run into the brown little scorpions. I never had any in my apartment complex. Keep crickets, their food source, out of your home. I did have a black widow hanging out by a pole near my covered parking space. I took care of that.

I don't know if I will make it there this Sunday as I get off of work at 6am and I will be a zombie at home cheering on the guys. That said, if all goes according to plan, I will try my hardest to show up for the NFC championship game. :0190l:

My name is Sean by the way but most places online I am tattooedsean for slightly obvious reasons. :th2thumbs:
I also have a slightly over 7 month old beard going so I might be like this guy----> :les: minus the cane and it isn't all white.

I will have to give a prewarning of which jersey I might be sporting as I have Wilson(home), Sherman(away), Browner(grey), and a Largent home jersey.

Here is another facebook page to add as a friend- https://www.facebook.com/Phoenix.Seahaw ... ts&fref=ts

It looks like Scottsdale won't be our only location. We are overfilling the local bars and expanding.

One might even be near me in Chandler. :0190l:

I didn't follow the link to the Seahawk bar you were talking about, was it the Skeptical Chymist? That place is amazing. If you guys are here when the season starts, we should all hit up the SC or go to the Hawks @ Cards game.

As far as work goes, I can put your name out for some contract work but I'd need some additional info through PMs before even trying.

You guys are in for a treat here soon when we hit 115 plus! I've been working outdoors here in Phoenix for almost 9 years, its a whole different monster when we hit those numbers. Other than those days, I love it.

You gotta fly by the seat of your pants on this one. And make sure you document everything that happens in photos/videos to share here.

Good Luck.

the summer heat doesn't bother me as I grew up in the midwest with the much worse 90% like humidity. That said, I work nights so I don't have to be outside every day of the week during the afternoon.

Good to see others here in the central valley. I have been in Chandler since late 1995.

I know they moved a location here in Chandler although I haven't been there. I am trying to find the information now.

That said, this has always been the nearby official location in Scottsdale- http://skepticalchymist.com/



Okay, here is the location in Chandler. http://fibbermageespub.com/


I can't seem to find the link but look up Arizona Seahawkers for more information. :0190l:

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:
