Arizona's governor recently placed the entire state under a heat emergency. Watch this week to find out what that means and, more importantly, why this and other news items you might see, simply don't apply to Prescott.
hello hello hello hello happy to be coming to you live live recording this live Diane and Randall bro here in lovely mountain town at Prescott Arizona that’s us that’s right Mountainous Landscape you think mountain town you don’t think of Arizona but here we are yeah we are mountain town it is a lovely Mountain Town kind of like Flagstaff not quite as high as Flagstaff um but nothing like you ever thought you’d see in Arizona that’s right people think Arizona is a desert the whole state is a desert about half of it is really pretty mountainous and yes not so much no I guess they call us a high desert not cinnamon desert right right High Desert good low desert bad yeah so we’re here in the high desert we have four seasons um the governor recently declared a heat emergency in all of Arizona all of Arizona it really didn’t apply to us no I don’t know why she did that yeah at the time Heat Emergency of the heat emergency I think our high that day was 85. it was so when you hear this very alarming temperatures Etc yes it does exist down in Phoenix or down the hill as we say when you live up in Prescott I’m going down the hill down the hill which means or the Valley Phoenix they did have a heat emergency they were having quite intense temperatures yeah they broke records I guess that was for July yeah uh so they broke some records and they did they had some very treacherous um scary stuff scary stuff going on not here though it did not apply to us well it applied to us because the governor said it did but right but yeah technically not really so our temperatures may get perhaps in July in the high 90s yeah which we kind of look for because then that sets the monsoon pattern and creates the rains which we really love and want which we’re getting so right now Four Seasons so we can tolerate a few days of a little high 90 Heat so as long as it can bring on the montoons and when they come in the temperatures drop to the 70s it’s completely delightful yeah so uh when you hear these enormous High temps down in the valley it really is not us really don’t be scared by that yeah and it’s going to be piercing sometimes like you’ll be in Prescott watching the weather and you’re watching weather in Phoenix you know yes that is a good point yeah there’s something you should know we don’t have a local TV station here so all of our news that we see is coming from Phoenix so sometimes you’ll be sitting down there and listening to oh my gosh yeah yeah what’s going on did you hear that happen it’s not here it’s in Phoenix you have to kind of take it with it yeah same thing with crime same thing with crime yeah yeah my mother doesn’t seem to get that she watches the news oh I heard there was a murder right downtown like then in Phoenix keep that in mind if you’re watching the local news the quote local news it’s really Phoenix news so when they’re talking about those temperatures and things like that it’s really not Prescott proper yeah that’s right so when you hear heat emergency don’t equate it with Prescott even if the governor says it’s the whole state she’s a liar she’s a liar that’s a little strong I don’t think she thinks much about uh areas outside of Phoenix that’s a joke that’s a joke relax relax I’m not calling the governor a liar that’s the joke it’s just a joke I’m getting a little Punchy it’s been a long day it’s been a long week so anyway Local News we just don’t want you to get thrown by that and think that that applies to Prescott yeah it really doesn’t we have not been on any heat advisories heat warnings we haven’t been on any water restrictions none of that happens that stuff applies here okay so our Summer’s kind of over we’re in the month yes we’re already I’ve been walking in the morning it’s already getting a little nip in the end you can kind of see fall is on the way and here it is the end of August so it’s uh delightful yeah absolutely it’s very nice so when you hear heat emergency heat advisory water restrictions etc etc does not apply to fee uh that’s right so she’s alive you’re a liar I am a liar so anyway we just wanted to share that with you um in case you had any concerns uh don’t Transition

If you grew up in the flatlands of the South, as we did, you'll need to learn a few tricks to be able to competently handle the elevation changes you'll find in Prescott. Listen in and learn how Randal literally drives Diane crazy.
hello hello hello you gotta move fast when you’re with pickle lady well listen we got a schedule we’re doing 10 of these today she is a task master we’re shooting 10 of these today so it’s like look let’s go boom boom boom that’s the magic of Television well I guess it’s not really television what is it I don’t know what this is it’s crazy today we’re talking about terrain Terrain this is something Randall does that Downshifting absolutely drops me insane it’s a new thing he does when we’re going down a hill he likes to shift and nothing I don’t know why I’m gonna be honest the crap out of it well that’s reason number one let me do it Flat Terrain Diane and I are both from New Orleans and we’ve spent a lot of our lives in Houston if you’ve ever spent any time there once you get past the heat of the humidity and the mosquitoes the next thing you notice is that everything is flat flat flat flat super flat so the Hill Skills first time we had just moved here and there’s a pretty big hill right outside our subdivision it leads down to a stoplight the first time I went down that Hill the light turned red and by the time I got to the end of the hill I could not stop I never drove anywhere where there were Hills particularly going downhill and I have none of those or at that time had none of those skills uh so I I get down to then I break and he was screeching yeah screeching through the six-way stop or whatever it is blowing screaming vocally as well and Screech yes not just the tires yeah not just the tires everybody sounded like a little girl yeah just a little bit yeah so I had to learn how to drive where Braking is Good there’s terrain and uh so the next thing I have to break going downhill and then after a year and a half and I needed to get new brake pads I learned to Downshifting is Better downshift so uh for those of you who have lived places where they’re Hills you know what I’m talking about if you’re if you drive an 18-wheel uh wheeler you know what I’m talking about you know when you’re going downhill instead of breaking the whole time you want to downshift and that keeps the car from getting too fast and it keeps you from wearing out your brakes yes it does but it’s also highly annoying yeah which is another benefit yeah oh God we need to get somewhere yeah anyway that’s another story for another day so that’s strange part part of the thing about terrain is you need to learn how to drive where there’s terrain if you’re not used to it it’s it’s a thing so you know it’s a skill that you need to pick up yeah but All-Wheel Drive another thing you should realize too uh when you move here don’t think you have to have an all-terrain vehicle it’s helpful a lot of people we have a high percentage of Subarus you’ll see them everywhere yes and they are great uh in the winter when we have a little bit of snow and a little bit of ice but even if you don’t have an all-terrain we don’t yes the snow it’s not a problem it’s not you don’t need it’s not that severe no Snow Skills snow tires no chains on your tires nothing like that nothing four-wheel drive is helpful it’s not necessary so when it first starts the snow um you know if you’re going up up a hill and you don’t have four-wheel drive you there are times you won’t make it don’t try to just go really fast and make it to the top because if you don’t make it you’re going to slide back down and hit the cars behind you which is pretty interesting yeah so if you if it begins to snow uh and we don’t get enough snow for this really to matter particularly if you’re retired uh if your car doesn’t have four-wheel drive you might want to just wait until everything’s plowed and all that stuff yeah that’s what we do yeah and I mean we are from the Deep South we have never been in Hills we have never been in any kind of winter weather we do just fine we do just fine we do yeah you do need all-terrain uh Well-Maintained Roads vehicles to drive in New Orleans and that’s just because they don’t spend any money on the roads we just did a uh a wind down on road construction yes they’re very although they just did all the road construction asphalt is wonderful uh so you really don’t need all-terrain vehicles for the roads in town if you get off the beaten Off the Beaten Path path you know if you want to go uh down some of the like Senator Highway leads down yeah some of the more remote areas yes you will yeah and that’s fine people do it people Jeep a lot yeah a lot of people yeah but you don’t need that around town just regular driving around no you might have trouble with low clearance vehicles uh and we did a a video before on driveways sometimes yeah it’s kind of hard to get up the curb or it’s not graded right uh and if you have uh like a Prius or something like that you might need a little more clearance yeah but uh but it’s all good it’s yeah it’s nothing like nothing to be scary nothing to be scared yeah Terrain Geekery I have a uh I just bought uh three 3D maps that show terrain on the map and uh he’s such a nerd yeah and I had to go have him framed yeah she did so every day he looks at all the terrains it’s a weirdo I’m in love with Torino the first time we went to uh we went to Denver we were with some friends and I made them pull over so I could throw a rock over the cliff then just watch it yeah wow that’s amazing gravity is a wonderful it’s been a long 37 years yeah you know if you know what I mean yeah [Laughter] so that’s terrible that’s our terrain lesson for you you’re coming to Prescott you should be aware Wind Down so that’s it and we hope that you guys have a good evening yep all right take care bye
If you investigate Prescott via social media, you might have heard some folks saying it's getting overpopulated or overcrowded. But is it really?
We'll give you the scoop on the different opinions, and help you understand whether Prescott is the right retirement town for you.
Introduction good morning hello peeps hope everybody’s day is off to a great start ours is I think so we are here uh this is Randall and Diane bro here in Prescott Arizona coming to you this morning to talk about something a lot of people are getting concerned about called overpopulation Prescott Overpopulation? population here in Prescott now I have to say you know maybe 20 years ago Prescott might have been 30 000 people yeah who knows who knows you should know when you hear overpopulation we don’t want people to think there’s millions of people here in Prescott that is just not the case we have about 54 000 people in Prescott proper yeah and another 53 54 whereabouts in Prescott Valley so between the two towns you’re talking about 100 000. there you go for the most part I mean people in Prescott do go out to PV to shop we do that people in Prescott Valley will come in for entertainment but people don’t it’s not like you’re commuting back and forth every day you know and in the morning in the afternoon so have we been just discovered yes are people moving here yes but you should know this is a Retirement Town retirement town we don’t have I mean there are people here who work but this isn’t like a big bustling town like Chicago or L.A where people are commuting daily for their jobs yeah or Orange County yeah I think a lot of people are comparing like this is going to be the next Orange County it’s not we don’t have the industry we don’t have the room to have the industry maybe out in Prescott Valley one day but impress No Commute Headaches your proper it’s pretty much done and so you know people who retire here um they’re not on the roads they’re not on the road at 7 A.M trying to get in in line to commute to work so you know has traffic increased a little bit a little but my God it’s still nothing like the big cities no it’s not like you have an hour and a half commute to get to your grocery store or something like that it’s just it’s just not yeah I I don’t get it I mean I don’t find it that way if you’re looking for a town that has no more than thirty thousand people then you know this train has passed that’s right uh you know I’ll tell you my take on kind of what’s going on I’m the one who does most of our marketing so I have my nose in social media there is yeah more than more than particular lady does and uh yeah my hands and pickles yeah she has her hands making pickles that’s Local Sentiment right yeah they have local people here who do not want the town to change a lot of people don’t want their Hometown to change you have people here who don’t want the town to change and there are some of those that will actually go on social media and actively comment to try to discourage people from coming here and one of the things they talk about is overpopulation it’s just not so it’s just not so unfortunately when a place is attractive and you live in a free country people will go there and if you live in a place that’s not so good people will leave you can always vote with your feet that’s one of the freedoms here and uh you know if if people don’t want other people to move here they need to buy the whole town if they don’t own all the property and you know what as much as they complain they always sell to the highest bidder which is usually someone from out of town Change & Adaptation anyway and as we know when you’re married a long time as we have been yes uh things change yes and you have to adapt to stay married yeah God knows I’ve learned that that’s right yeah that’s that’s right you have to add that so it’s the same thing when you live in a town that has been discovered and things that people are moving in you just kind of have to adapt it’s changing and sometimes it changes for the better um it has changed for the better since we have been here we have been here at this point about seven years and when we first got here it was a little there wasn’t a lot going on now there are more good restaurants more things to do it’s more lively um I like it better and I like it more Amenities & Options every day yes um you know I honestly wouldn’t be interested in moving to a town particularly for retirement with a population of less than 50 40 000 I mean you know you’re going to have one Diner where you’re gonna have to eat all the time that you go to a place that’s that small we’re kind of becoming hip and happiness we’ve got some great art galleries more and more people are coming with you know with their own music more music it’s lovely it’s lovely so you know we just don’t want you to think oh my gosh if I move there is it going to be like I’m in Orange County it really isn’t it you know uh it might take you 15 minutes to get down the road but it’s still better than an hour and a Social Media vs. Reality half yeah so uh anyway so how about that throw you yeah if you haven’t figured it out yet you can’t trust everything you see on social media that’s right you just can’t you just can’t these are opinions we’re chill people some people aren’t quite as chill some are very chill everyone has an opinion A lot of them stink uh you know um it’s it’s just it’s just the way of life some people honestly have opinions that others might think are erroneous a lot of people you know they have opinions with a 10 intent they’re trying to make you they’re trying to uh just wait it’s a switch for their own purposes that’s right so you should be aware keep in mind this is not like um high-tech industry here or research hospitals here or anything this is kind of just like a really nice little retirement town so if you’re worried about commuting and traveling and this that and the other hmm nobody’s getting up here you know unless it’s to go to the golf course at seven a.m but yeah they’re not going they’re not driving to work that’s right the the city of Self-Limiting Population Prescott regularly gets ranked as one of the best places to retire it is never ranked as one of the best places to look for a job yes it’s a retirement town and you can only drive so much population into a town that doesn’t have a lot of jobs to offer that’s awesome so anyway that is our thing we don’t want you to be wow now the town’s just getting too big I don’t even want to look at it that’s not so don’t let that scare you that’s just crazy it’s great here we love life here it’s all good in the hood as I like to say good in the hood okay so that is our little Spiel today on talking about overpopulation um just not a problem yeah so in in our opinion oh and by the way the people who live here they’re not having a lot of children there kind of past that age unless they would be like Saint Elizabeth and something miraculous yeah it would be a miracle yeah so for my Catholics out there you know who’s saying yeah that’s right that’s exactly right you’ll be okay all right my friends so that is it for today we just wanted to kind of talk about that a little bit because we hear about that oh that it’s getting too big it’s getting too big yeah people come in and ask us yeah and they look around like what are they talking about yes so Wind Down that is our tip

Introduction hello hello hello hello peeps this is Diana Randall bro your friendly local Prescott area Realtors and she’s pickle Eddie I am the pickle lady she’s full of pickles sometimes sometimes all right so Sad Story this episode we have something sad to talk about it is it was a very sad story you might have heard it it made national news a very fine gentleman of one of our local prescottiians was building a beautiful cabin up in the remote section of the mountains and unfortunately a bear came and got it it’s acting Joe by bear yeah totally unprovoked it’s a very unusual thing to happen especially with a male bear not quite sure what uh set him off um but we just wanted to put the word out there that when you hear Prescott don’t think we’re you know uh up and up in the mountains we’re not full of bears we’re not full of bears our thoughts and prayers go out to him our condolences got him and his family obviously this is a tragic event and we certainly don’t want to make little of this no and uh I mean there was a bear attack in Prescott Prescott Size let me explain what in price kit means so in Prescott in this case means the within the Incorporated area of Prescott now just so you’ll know if you go to the extreme north of the Incorporated area of Prescott and you drive without traffic so you know my Californians this isn’t about traffic you know you just there’s no traffic you drive to town it will take you the like 30 minutes to get to town and then if you proceed South uh you can drive another 40 minutes or so until you hit the South Boundary so this occurred on the South Boundary the South Boundary eventually get you get to the Bradshaw Mountains this was on the other side of the Bradshaw Mountains Not in Town essentially so a very remote area it is more remote so we didn’t want you to feel like oh my gosh if I’m around the town square or there’s going to be coming out yeah um I will never say never yeah but odds are no that will never happen unless you’re way up you know if the head bears in town they’d all be at Costco I think picking up the salmon there or something that’s right absolutely making it easier we really don’t have Bears or things like that yeah in the town this is a Remote Areas very remote area uh we rarely go up there from time to time we have somebody who wants us to go look at something I’ve broken an axle you should be aware a lot of folks think I really want something remote where I can enjoy peace and nature and I don’t want to be around a lot which can be absolutely delightful and beautiful beautiful area it’s stunning but you should be aware that a lot of those roads are not paved it’s dirt roads you could get snowed in you could get the roads could get washed out because monsoons and rutted it’s very difficult to Traverse unless you’ve got it yeah your car can fall off the path like we did this is very remote people come they think I want something kind of that’s exactly what I want usually the Too Remote for Most everyone we brought up there that well this is tumorable this is way too remember so although it’s stunningly beautiful it’s kind of for uh special kind of people that that enjoy that and and can handle those kind of roads without any issues and most of those places are not winterized no so the people who are staying there for the most part are only there during the summer so these are more like camps these are yeah I mean if you get snowed in up Snowed In there it could be kind of like the shiny oh yeah yeah it’s good I mean you’re gonna be because you’re way more at the top of the mountain and that snow stays a long time I got stuck up there one time and I was told you know we’ll be there in six hours luckily after about an hour someone drove by who had a chain and pulled me back from somebody who lived up there and they’re like we got you we have all the equipment we’re used to this we’ll pull you out people are very friendly so you should keep that in mind uh Other Animals remote can be uh have some animals out there we do have mountain lions we do have Bobcats we have javelina we have Bears we have coyotes and in these remote areas these animals not the ones in town but the ones in the remote areas these are wild animals these are not they’re not being fed you know by cars that pass by and yeah in Yosemite Park or whatever right these these animals rarely see human beings so that’s right so um again it was a terrible unfortunate accident or event that had yes a neighbor a fellow neighbor heard and came out and and uh addressed it and yeah and so they have captured the bear but we just wanted to share that with you you should know if you decide to go into the more remote areas this could be something that’s you know out there and you know we do we’re kind of a little love country town and we have lots of Critters here you say you found you stay In Town on the golf course you know you don’t have to worry about being attacked while you’re teeing off it’s it’s no it’s nothing like that you know these these things go into the the media and the media tries to sell stories sometimes they can be misleading yes uh as I said before it is a fact he was in Prescott but uh the incorporate area right not downtown that is correct you won’t see any bears going around the square thank goodness thank goodness but uh anyway so we just wanted to share that with you we thought it was um kind of a terrible event that happened but we wanted to assure folks out there thinking about Prescott like wow is that really just like a remote Town yeah not really um you’d be perfectly fine here yeah now we can relate because we’re from New Orleans and that’s right A lot of times people go to New Orleans they’ll worried the alligators are gonna attack that’s right people have probably gotten attacked by alligators within the Incorporated limits of New Orleans but it can happen yeah I never say never yeah I Never Say Never Never Say Never yeah you’re gonna have some exotic dancer with an alligator or Bourbon Street you could you could yeah but she’s got a special Act [Laughter] yeah it happens I’m thinking about that but anyway so yeah keep this all in mind Prescott is Safe we just didn’t want you to feel uh this would be too weird you know it’s not your cup of tea it would be your cup of tea it’s awesome here it’s amazing you’ll love it you’ll love the the scenery everything but it’s pretty much yeah that’s another thing yeah so be aware we got the critters we got Critters so that’s our tip of the day
