Just more interesting and warmer.
To me temperate climates are kidna boring. I can drive up and down I-95 and see nothing but the same tree over and over again. its flat it's uninteresting and its cold. There's nothing to see from east coast interstates unless they go through the mountains or by the water. In a desert every thing is new and strange, there are weird rock formations, ancient dried lakes, beautiful mountains, strange plants, and crazy terrain rolls.
I found that while ac (and a fan) can elimiate overheat, the heating at my house wont work at all unless you're right infront of it, so I'd take that over winter
Excuse me? In the desert you are in trouble when the sun goes down. Once I had to go to the outhouse at night and I thought I was not going to get back alive.
Tend to agree. Not a huge fan of extreme heat, though the lack of humidity is awesome. :)
