    I hate to let you in on it, but Wickenburg goes from 5000 to 10,000 in the winter. It's hell trying to get through either one of our stoplights while they roll their RV's at 5 mph in the fast lane. :rolleyes: :D :rolleyes: :D

    It's the other way around up here in the hi-country. We get flooded in the summer with the people from Phoenix trying to beat the heat.
