Arizona in winter up to 4,000' EL; preferably around 2-3,000' EL

Above 7,000' EL - Colorado, Utah, & other western states or coastal areas in summer.

We spend much of the winter in AZ desert areas.
We spend much of the summer in the PNW.

South facing slopes in the winter, North in the summer. I do try to stay out of the snowy mountains in winter as its a chore keeping warm, heating using propane constantly, constantly hearing the furnace come on etc. Same kinda thing in summer with AC, but in summer I tend to camp higher elevations in mtns n cold at night, and Im out all day so AC not needed.

In the winter we have done in the south in the sun and we have done in the north in the snow and ice. In the summer we done in the south with AC running 24x7 and in the north with no AC.

My preference is no Heat and no AC.

We stay in southern Arizona in the winter. We head to the northern mountains in the summer most years (Montana and Wyoming mostly).

We live in southern Arizona so in the Summer we go to the mountains to boondock and get out of the heat, or into Utah.

In the Winter we go to other locations in southern Arizona - Safford in the east of the state, Yuma in the west of the state, or sometimes around Phoenix near some of the lakes or Tucson.

One of the nice things about this area is we can (and do) travel and camp all year.

We are doing New England for the month of August, with the majority of the time dry camping in Maine.

It's 100F now in a lot of places in Cali so we're heading up to 8500' in 10 days. It will be 75-80 during the day and 50 or so at night - very pleasant and NO BUGS!
