My brother has lived there since '86. Worked at Gore as an engineer, now a fire captain. Plenty of forest to play in. You can find plenty of wood to cut. The forest is ponderosa and very dry compared to what you are used to. Life in town can be congested with the college kids and Phoenix visitors. The vibe is still small town for engaged locals - can't go anywhere with my bro and family without running into friends. It appears you like space. If you are wealthy, there are options for living well in the forest all around. If you are of moderate professional means, head north east out of town on 89. Doney Park and surrounding area has lots of space, affordable rentals and places to purchase. It's a nice town. I may retire there in eight years.
