Good luck with your move Eddy. I think Pheonix will be good, just don’t care for the heat myself. I too am leaving the high desert and CA. Moving to Nampa, Idaho in July. Not looking forward to packing my shop either. The house will be a piece of cake compared to packing the shop and tools. Good luck.
