This summer 2018 has been huge for me.
For years I’d casually tell my friends and family: “I’m moving out west someday, probably to Phoenix…”
This summer I finally did it 🙂
It rains a lot in Baltimore, a lot. It’s also very mild during the summer. Too mild. It was time to go…
As I told you before I deleted my Twitter and Facebook. To make this move work I didn’t need or want random peanut gallery comments and observations from “friends”. I went zero dark thirty on this one…besides Instagram. I soft posted my move on there….
The trip was in three phases:
Phase one was early June. I flew out to Phoenix with plans to maybe visit Vegas and LA if I didn’t LOVE Phoenix the way I thought I would. I stayed 4 days in hotels. Needless to say I loved Phoenix…
Phase 2 was mid-July. I drove the newer of my 2 cars to Phoenix and rented a condo within 72 hours of my arrival.
Phase 3 was in mid-August. After working and buying furniture for maybe 3 weeks I flew back to dreary-ass Baltimore and collected the rest of my tech, as well as my older car and my beloved Harley-Davidson, which I towed.
Both cross country drives took me roughly 3 days and I did 2 of them in one month. Tough guy status.
Now I’m all settled and stuff and looking forward to spending the balance of my years in sunny, dry, hot-ass Phoenix.
I hope you guys had a good summer, even though I’m sure you didn’t get busy like I did. I was on a mission!
