    No I've never been, I'll be there in March, DH just got to Camp Pendleton, he'll be training at a Navy Hospital until January and then stars FMSS for Marine Training, and then we go to 29 Palms, but from what i've seen online anyways, it's a pretty nice place, i've never been, but I can't wait, i'm all the way in Florida though, it's going to be a rough change. We'll be driving from Florida when DH comes back to pick me up, we're taking almost everything with us, hopefully we can get a place on base, I wonder how Base Housing is, does anyone know?

    I have a friend who just got there in July. But they are heading back to the east coast. She hated it, but I think a big part of that is because she had never lived more than an hour away from her parents and she was 28. Just remember no matter what you hear about a place it's all what you make of it. She went into it with a bad mindset and ultimately had a bad time, but if you look for the positives and take the adventure for what it is then you'll enjoy it.

    Thankyou, yeah, I will definitely, try to make it out as a new experience, because i've only lived away from my parents for a month, it will be hard for awhile, but I've got to do it sometime...

    I will give you my honest opinion...I think 29 palms is a total Hell Hole! Its like a tiny base with a tiny tiny small town around it and then nothing for miles and miles and then a small town and nothing for miles and miles and miles its just a total desert and bblllaahhhh lol

    Yeah, it is nothing but a desert, but the Base itself is huge, and from what i've looked at online, it's got a crap load of stuff on base, I mean, i've never been there, but I will be soon...LOL
