I’ve lived in Arizona basically my whole life. It is HOT here in the summer. So many people only see that part of Arizona. But it’s the fall, winter, and springs that make living here so amazing.
Clear skies, sun, and overall good weather are coming our way. You can basically just live outside from now until April. The outdoor activities that open up to people here in AZ are nearly endless.
I am currently building a jeep up so I can take my kids Camping. Something we are very much looking forward to. You can 100% go camping without an off road vehicle, but I like to go places a bit more secluded and hard to get to, and not large camping spots, or even if I go to large camping spots. I like to take the long way to get there. But you can go camping, go to the lake, drive a couple of hours north and go skiing. hiking, backpacking, etc. are all on the list. It is by far my favorite time of year. But my favorite by far is off roading/overlanding.
This is how my jeep was the day I bought it. Right now it is in far more pieces in the garage. BUT in another month or two, it will be a very different beast. I’m just really excited for the exploration and other activities that we’ll be doing as a family.
This is an old picture from the last jeep I had:
This was from over 4 years ago, The excitement she had then (and all my kids) pushes me to get this done for them as quickly as possible.
