But why AZ? I see you were also checking out Texas...Do you like the heat? Or are you just a glutton for punishment?
I'm trying to get AWAY from the heat Texas probably wasn't such a good idea. Flagstaff apparently never gets very hot.

Most of Maricopa and Pima counties [metro Phoenix and metro Tucson] are subject to mandated EPA emissions and emission equipment inspections for cars, trucks, and SUVs. Vehicle license taxes are high unless you own a 20+ year old vehicle.

What seems to be no law is actually little enforcement and window tinting is a good example. Arizona does have standards on window tinting and an overwhelming majority of vehicles on the road have excessive window tint on the front side windows. The police may or may not enforce the law regularly, but do use it as probable cause to stop the vehicle.

Keep in mind that as more people move here, the laws and political environment have been changing. As a native, I remember when Phoenix had a population of 500,000 and it was easy to open a business, modify a vehicle, etc. Those days are disappearing as more people want the same laws they once left behind.
Thanks for the input. I haven't even visited Flagstaff, let alone looked for a house / job. So the experience is appreciated.

I figure as an electrical engineer, with a specialty in alternative energy, there should be jobs just about anywhere. Of course, I could be completely off my rocker and dead wrong.
