One way to enjoy the "Old West" while still using all of your electronic gadgets is to stay at a dude ranch. You get horses, bonfires, grilled steak, and electricity! One of the most famous of such venues is the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch, a Tucson treasure and a family-owned operation for decades.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
