    Why do you live where you live?

    A job relocation brought us to to the here many years ago. We settled and stayed.

    I came to live here because my wife's family were in the area. Now her mother and her sister have passed awsy and her other sister has moved away so we are settled here on our own.

    Finances won't let us move yet and I'm hoping we will be able to in a few months. It's so expensive to live over here.

    Met the wife here in this area when I come here to run my dads business for him years ago, after years being gone from the family business doing my own thing I come full circle to take over business once again. Actually meant to be about 500 miles further south.o_O

    Simply to get the hell away from my spouse. 1000 kms ensures don't get her or any otherwise unwanted guests. This place is so remote no city person would even want to visit which is real fine by me. Only had two people from my old life visit in 5 years so perfect!
    The climate is mild to warm although some of you folks would call it blistering.
    I love my job, great staff, good fishing, tropical fruit then there is that special SO :)
    I came for a 2 year contract before intending to retire and five and a half years later I am still here although sadly not for much longer :(

    I live in Fresno because I love horrible air quality, having fog all winter long , zero rainfall.. And 110 degree summers..horrible unemployment. And rampant gang related violence are just icing on this shitcake I call home.
