"Arizona Native" ArizonaExpert's Profile

Who I am

I have spent the last 40 years in Arizona, with a brief year or two in Reno and Las Vegas. I was here when most of Scottsdale was desert, and when the population was a third. I am a former firefighter paramedic and spent seven years as a police officer. I give great directions!!!

I have 5 kids, so if you are traveling in the area with children, I can give you plenty of advice, and maybe even a babysitter.

I am looking to expand my travel horizons by proving that there is land east of the eastern coast of the United States. My wife and I plan to travel to Paris, Italy and Spain in spring of 2008. Australia will be 5 years away with any luck!

Our place in Northern AZ..It snows here too!

    Thanks for the offer but should you not be paying me to take a kid or two off your hands for a while so you can get some peace and rest, which im sure you get very little of at the moment with 5 running around.

    Your travel motto is excellent but do you really now need Immodium AD when travelling around AZ? ;-)
