I have plan. I will not disclose. I have 16 miles to hike to reach 700 miles this year thus far. Soooo that is my very short term goal. :)
Good luck! I should have logged my fitness hikes, which is all I've had this year.

Not yet. I won't stay near the Valley, though. Back when I first moved to Arizona in 2006, there were bumper stickers on cars in Flagstaff which read, "Don't PHX FLG". Phoenix should have had bumper sticks in the 80s which read, "Don't LAX PHX". Too late.

Careful, 91,000 of them shopped homes here as they fled theirs last year. You need a buyer now before you can flee yours. Just sayin...

I think that's pretty much a problem anytime people go anywhere. It just depends on whether or not the individual wants to be there any longer. At 1/5th the size, the Tucson area is not yet anywhere close to the valley.

I'm wondering if this week's temperatures back close to 90° will improve air quality here in the valley.

92 degrees yesterday! I've been told this was the latest 90+ high for Phoenix.

Nah. Today is the latest 90+ day. :lol:
Apparently we have a slight chance again tomorrow.
Today is the 191st day of 90 or above at PHX in 2020. The third most all-time. One more and we'd be 2nd. We need 5 more days to reach the record, and that seems unlikely at this point.

At day 322 of the year, 59% of our days so far this year have been at or above 90 degrees. Even if today is the last 90+ degree day, we are assured of more than half (52%) of days in 2020 will have been at or above 90 degrees.

Oh joy!
For me, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as the destination.
Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.

Yup, 92 degrees today, as well. Actually, if not hiking it was rather pleasant outside. Warm or hot, but pleasant.

Weird, because over here in Blythe, which is typically as hot or hotter, they recorded only 81. (Pretty soon I'll be relocating to chilly Tucson!)

We got an early taste of winter in NJ last night, with a low of 23F and brisk winds. At least the sun is shining, so I don't mind for now.

Yikes. Well I'm not moving there until December 3rd.
