okay, i signed up just to say :YUMA SUCKS!
ive had to endure the 115F summers (6 months of summer, LOL) for 21 years.
yes, low crime, yes no cold, yes pretty feilds (untill you get crop dusted, 21 sent to hospital)
but thats it. if your looking for a sleepy town, this is it. if you 60+ its a great place. but THE FRIGGEN MALL IS OUT DOORS! who thought this up? the economy sucks, unemployment has not improved since 2008 when it all crashed. there are still houseing devlopents in place with no house since 2009 (i workd as a glazer)
no clubs, lots of seedy bars, not much else. lots of marines, lots of mexicans (50% ?) tho there is very little racial tension.
one hospital (only city in us that has 1 hospital for 120,000) and the docs have a bad rep.
yeah, river, san dunes, blah blah. if you can afford the toys, and dont mine the heat, its fun.
but it sucks, tho the 3 casinos might be a draw, if you can find a machine that is not a .01.
i hate this town. i never want to see it again. and yeah, the border patrol is a pain.
oh yeah,"yuma international airport" only flies to phoenix or san diego. but i guess the c-130 make it 'international'.
yeah, its great. if your old. or want to sleep your life away. and never leave anything in ur car. summer temp inside cars are in the 175 area. not joking.
