    My corner of paradise
    I currently live in Twentynine Palms. There are plenty of myspace message boards and truthfully that's how you'll make most of your friends, that and on base functions. my husband and i live off base, in non-base related apartments, but everyone I know lives ON base. I'll post the links to the boards i belong to because we schedule get togethers and movie nights and all these fun things, even people with kids have "play dates"!

    Don't be afraid to not have a job. There isn't much besides places on base (that btw are mostly civilians from 29palms, and not Dependants, the establishments on base dont like military wives with deployed husbands because they ask for too many days off, or only want to work til their hubbys get back. ITS A LOAD OF SHIT!) and being a bartender in town, or working at a gas station, or being a bank attendant.

    Walmart is 21 miles away. So people PLAN to go to walmart, its funny

    the base smells like shit....literally like shit.....

    No one is guaranteed happiness. You can pursue it, but if you happen to find success along the way on that road to happiness, Conservatives believe you should not be demonized or penalized for it.

    We just moved here a few days ago. We rented a house off base cause when we talked to housing they said there was a really really long waiting list for housing. So we just decided to rent. I'm the odd one here and LOVE it here. The base is small and smells But I think the landscape is beautiful. It's just how you make it out to be.
    Siggy under construction!!!

    My hubby was stationed there when he was a MARINE....we hated it. Nothing to do! Very boring and brace yourself for the summer. It gets nasty hot out there. Good Luck!

    My own little world
    i talked to a friend of mine about it...and she said honestly it was the closest place to hell she experienced...not to freak you out or anything...but she told me all sorts of horror stories about mold growing all over and it making it hard to breathe......and the heat w/ no air conditioning in a lot of the places....but that was just her experience....i've never been there though...

    Everyday you spend worrying about miss living for today...
