29 palms..............anyone live there ?? close ??
 
i'm thinking of moving to 29 palms, california.

was wondering if anyone lives there, near there, that could give me tips on the place.

any info at all would be helpful about living in that area.

I worked there one summer many years ago.

Initially, I hated it. Dry, hot, desert. My boss said "this place kinda grows on you" and a few weeks later, he was right.

It's really hot. Like... put a burrito on your dashboard, and 20 minutes later, it's too hot to eat. It cools down a bit at night, being a desert.

But it's pretty in places, and they have road runners and cacti. And lots of US Marines.

Not far from Joshua Tree NP, too.

I just drove though 29 Palms...maybe a nice place but it looked like a really depressed area.
