Jennifer: I lived in Big Bear for many years. It's South of Ft Irwin (and about 6500 ft up). I knew many who were stationed at or worked at Ft Irwin. Most had good things to say, especially about the people on base. Once you get settled, there is a lot to see in the area, both desert and mountain. Winter snow activities just 2 hours away! The fellow that ran the stables at Ft. Irwin was a great guy with lots of great stories-don't know if he is still there though. Go with an open mind and enjoy.

I was attempting to counter the attitude of 'Barstow ugliness'. Virtually everywhere we go we find something interesting. I'm sure Barstow has a place to stay that will meet your needs.

I'm certain you'll find a satisfactory location. I fully agree with your comments in post #9 of this thread. Definitely wishing you well and thank you for your service.
Thanks, this is an aweseome group, everyone, thank you.

And no, I had never had a bad experience at Ft Irwin, but it is what it is, and I wish you the best of luck and thank you for your service.

Roger that Bob! Makes total sense. Thank you yourself for your service.

I hope my wording wasn't written badly. I appreciate this community and figured you might have been good naturedly ribbing but, since this is my new duty station I want to find the best in it. No doubt the heat will be a major factor as I've only encountered such heat one time before.

Jen
edit: although my primary living area will be the post RV park, (updated after speaking with them.)

Thank you Dennis,

Everyone too. I think the post rv park is near the stables, so I will go.
