Been here for 13 months so far. lets see.
to go anywhere you have at least a 2 hour drive.
there is no green anywhere
gyms are always crowded
people pull rank all the time, literally- just to get a haircut a cpl was booting out the schoolhouse marines
the navy here are so entitled and obese it ... just pisses you the fuck off
the elevation and heat will steal the energy outta you - expect you run time to go up by 3 minutes.
restrictions on libo are just that, restrictive.
its a comms schoolhouse so you are constantly aware of that fact.
more shinies in 10 sqaure meters than in your worst nightmares
desert yetis are a thing
the best local attraction is crappy mexican food and midget mud wrestling at the casino.
its not the worst, but it is what you make of it. Joshua tree park is right outside the gates and it has some of the best hiking i have ever seen, people in town are actually nice if you dont be an asshat bragging about being in the military
