It's interesting to drive through if you are headed to Kingman or Laughlin.
Weird story- stopped there on my way down to Laughlin. on a Tuesday. There are two bars in town . Went in to one and had two or three beers and a hamburger platter. I stayed in Laughlin for a week and the following Tuesday found me back in Cholride where the same bartender who served me a week before now told the kitchen is only open on weekends and had been for years.

Second bar I believe is closed and for sale. Had a burger at the one attached to the old hotel today, fries were excellent, waitress was completely overwhelmed and flustered when there was more than one table going haha.

Roy Purcell murals a mile up the gravel mountain road going out of town are interesting. Road is rough enough going up Iíd almost rather just hike it if I went again even with a stock AWD/4WD SUV.

I don't know Miami very well but to me it seemed like Ft Lauderdale was what I would have wanted Miami to be.



You're right. Lauderdale is definitely nicer and less chaotic.

Haha, if I ever moved back to Vegas it would be Centennial Hills just so that I could get out of Vegas and to Mount Charleston ASAP 5 months of the year. So yeah, basically zero desire to live there again. The high desert probably isnít for me either but better chance than LV.

Yes and no. Although both areas are connected by highways both are very self sufficient. If you live in one there is really no necessary reason to go to the other unless you commute for work.

Just that on a map it looks like it long ago all grew together. I do notice all the used cars in FL seem to have 100,000 miles at just a few years old because of how far people seem to drive these metros.

I have a seven year old Impala with 13,000 miles on it. My wife and I probably put around 4,000 miles a year total between our two cars now that we live in Florida..

I can't think of a state that I dislike more than Florida. I hate everything about it. The heat and humidity suck, it being totally flat sucks. All the old people really suck, the homeless everywhere beyond suck. Out of control crime in many parts of the state. Traffic is mind-bogglingly bad everywhere. But it does have nice weather a few months out of the year and it's amazing what people are willing to trade in their lives for that.

Back in the '70s and '80s I was a big Travis McGee fan, the character created by John D MacDonald who lived in Fort Lauderdale on a boat. He talked about air conditioning so much it was almost a secondary character in his books. The air conditioned boat, the air conditioned car, running from the car into an air conditioned store. Getting all your outdoor work done really early in the morning because you can't do it after noon in the summer. Every time I visited there I wanted to leave immediately.

So, where do you recommend a person live?

If you want an interesting example of housing costs, check out this story. At first, I thought it was a bargain successful craft story of how a guy bought a used 245 sq ft shed off Craig's list, converted it into tiny home that he rents out from his backward as a BRB in San Antonio TX for $74 a night. Yup, people are renting it.

But by the time he finished all the construction, getting permits and stuff, he was up to $40,000 for that 245 ft tiny house.

Fair is fair, if unprovable claims are insisted to be true, one should be able to use unprovable methods of debunking.
