I've grown quite sick and tired of living in Southern California with all of it's smog, gangs, traffic jams and all around stupidity. My neighborhood has never been the best place but now it's on the decline big time...... trust me, I've seen something like this happen before only much worse.
Anyhow, I heard Arizona was a good/wholesome place to live. My cousins/brothers live in Pinetop with their mother and that sounds like the area for me BUT I have 1 concern: My mom has Artheritis *or however you spell it* and it SNOWS in the winters there due to Pinetop being on the peak of a mountain. I don't want to move somewhere that is harsh on my moms body but I want out BAD! If she can handle it well enough and can adjust to the climate change then I'm going to insist we move to Pinetop but I don't want to force her to suffer more than she already does during cold weather. I'm caught between what I want and whats best for the person who gave me life/raised me. I'm not selfish in the least but if it comes down to it I don't think I could decide between the 2 this time!!! DX
MY SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM: Find a place thats suitable to live that is within a 3 hours drive to Pinetop. This way I could at least live close to my family and my mom wouldn't be in such pain during the winter months. This is where YOU come in Nexus. Does anyone know of a nice, semi-lively suburb near Pinetop Arizona? Someplace with an Arcade or a Movie Theater and maybe a Mall would be perfect. Not too busy but not completely dead either you know? If so I'd love to hear about it and if you could give me an estimated price range of a 2 Bedroom 1 Bathroom house in that area I'd be extremely grateful. I've been meaning to do some internet searches but I'd also like to hear from residents or people who have been around that area before. Thank you in advance - Alex Tyler.
