If you’re ever in the area again once I’m out there come 2020, hit me up and maybe we’ll get a ride in.

I tend to get things right on the second attempt

Expect everything to cost atleast 25% more but usually 50%-100% than what you paid for it when you were in sconni

and wait til you get hit with the water restriction rules and penalties......... a bunch of fucking retarded morons run the state and county and cities- you'll see..........

And since the idiotic drivers were mentioned- yep..... it is even worse than sconni especially if you ever were to head southwest from Barstow and get near the cluster fuck of LA or San Bernandino or firther south still to some of those roads....

And expect panhandlers, and a bunch of fucking illegals sitting outside Home Depot and at every intersection off the interstate and gas stations the fucking beggers and people who just want to cause trouble if you don't give them monies they don't deserve.......... They will all be on their Obama phone too getting free healthcare off the backs of taxpayers and more signs will be in spanish than in english and more people that don't speak english than do....

meth labs in peoples cluster fuck of garbage back yards in the Lenwood area of Barstow and crime.......... yep, lots of that shit....

You would need to drive 30 miles minimum to find anywhere worth riding your motorcycle, or to get to anyplace decent at all (if Commifornia even has anyplace one would call decent)

But hey, have fun and enjoy your stay there but I would walk around armed with extra magazines 24/7......... I sure the fuck did everytime I had to go there

It is a shithole amongst other shitholes, just there is nothing else around this shithole for about 30 miles in any direction (there is a reason for that!)

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

That's a huge base..... probably a LOT of access roads on post that are not monitored heavily..... although as a commissioned officer getting popped on base for speeding wouldn't be the best choice.

Same as any other Army post, there's going to be that ring of shady businesses right outside the gates, then less of that the further you go. Foot transportation, lots of bars and strip clubs.... separate the young enlisted from their paychecks...... lots of crappy used car dealers, etc. Tattoo parlors....You only have to interact with that community, if you want to.

Well you could always just do loops around the base.......looks like a nascar track, as the jets fly overhead nobody will ever hear you... one day you make all left loops, and change it up and another day make all right loops............lol

and since you won't actually be living in Barstow maybe it won't be so bad (crime, homeless, beggers, drugs etc...), but just wait til the wind blows dust and sand into every orfice of everything you pocess, it is the fucking desert any wind is dirty wind, and it will be so fucking hot all day long- better have some actual air conditioning and not just the stupid ass swamp cooler shit where you are pounding through hundreds of gallons of water each day trying to keep it cooler

I would not live out there for any amount of time for any amount of monies......... it is still commifornia- home of fucking illegals and moronic leftist agenda politicians who want to ruin america and hate americans.......

I try to stick off post with my shenanigans, lmao. Love the Warrant community too. Heavily leaning towards dropping my commission in a few years when I try and assess for 160th... fly more and stay with the unit. I got Blackhawks instead of my Apache so, I have to try and get my guns another way.
