29 Palms Isn't So BAD....

Right now this is the PERFECT topic for me right now. All I hear lately is how 29 Palms is hell or how people hate it or how it sucks. I'm a small town country girl that was born and raised in America's Heartland KANSAS. Where the nearest Wal-Mart was 30 minutes away and everyone knows everyone. You wave the two finger wave when you pass someone on the road. Where when the fair/derby comes to town its like the best thing that has happend all summer. I miss WIDE OPEN spaces called the COUNTRY. The smell of alfalfa smells great when the windows are rolled down. I know this may sound SO FUNNY but I miss that amazing smell of cow crap, I miss the sounds of trains, I miss the sound of a freaking tractor driving down the road. I love the small town feel!!!!! I know 29 Palms isnt the best place on the planet and its not like where we are from but to me it has that small town feel with all these crazy 29 native people around us. I know you all may think I have lost my marbles after saying this but I would rather live in 29 Palms then down in Camp Pendleton/Camp Lejeune or in the area(s) due to the fact that I would never drive anywhere. Its SO CONGESTED with PEOPLE!!!! It may get up to 110+ here in 29 Palms, but I'm used to that plus humidity from Kansas. I miss green I will admit but this is the desert and I have learned to live with it since I have been here since 2007 and will be here till 2012. People are so spoiled when they go to big bases near cities but then I hear them complaining about how they hate it or the traffic. I think 29 Palms is a great place, it grows on you. It makes you appreciate living someone else to be honest. 29 Palms has alot to offer you just have to dig deep and find it and stop whinning about it. I have great memories here and it will always have a place in my heart since its where I reunited with my love after him being gone off to war, our son was born here, I met some great people here that are like my family, snow is like winning the lottery when it does snow. So I think people should give it a chance before you go judging a book by its cover since some of you are so freaking spoiled!!!bahahaha


  1. My favorite blog ever!I agree 110 percent!!
    Love the pictures us girls:)
    I must admit I do miss ks too but for now t29 is the place I call home!

  2. I don't have a problem with 29 as much because I grew up in a smaller town then this too....its just Eric's damn unit that makes me want to scream!!

  3. the people in 29 palms probably complain because they dont know YOU are there! i bet they would change their minds if they hung out with you for a minute :)
