A friend of mine was a Colonel down there. His ex-wife is now married to another Colonel down there. I'll try to see if she's still there, or if they've moved on.

I've been to Fort Huachuca. Love the weather.

I'm in Tucson at the moment, which is the nearest big city to where you're going to be. As with most western US cities it's very difficult to get around without a car and it's very spread out, which makes a huge change from London. The people are fantastic however, as is the weather. If you're coming for any length of time be prepared for 100 degree+ days (35C+) and high humidity. Also be sure to fully investigate how to use programs like skype to keep in touch with the UK cheaply.

I see you're currently deployed - stay safe... (I served a while with 'Crab Air'... on the Wokkas...)

We'll be in AZ hopefully for Nov, and we're just beginning to appreciate that what is a long distance in the UK is not necessarily so in AZ, so perhaps we'll see you in the New Year when we go exploring the Border regions?!

Cheers

Harry

Hey! I'm also a brit living in AZ..I moved to Tucson with my fiance a few months ago (not far from Fort Huachuca). The winter is a perfect time to move to Arizona, the mountain are amazing and there is lots of fantastic hiking/mountain biking. I will gladly help you with any information you may need.

There is a Brit meetup group in Phoenix but I've not been able to find one in Tucson and I'm feeling lonely myself without any fellow brits. If anyone wants to start a meetup let me know!

Hi Peahead(!?)

We move on the 9th, arriving that night on the direct flight from London on BA. We'll have our 3 dogs on the same flight

I'm currently in Phoenix on work - great timing! I head back on Friday to finalise the move and pack etc, and then, we're off!

I took a trip out to Canyon lake at the weekend - amazing scenery.

Tucson isn't so far, so perhaps we'll meet up after Thanks Giving?

Cheers

Harry
