    Bakersfield stinks. At least, the oil refineries belching whatever it is they emitted when I drove through, did stink a lot. 'Course, that was long, long ago, 1960s.

    Often, the armpit I've always heard referred to was Barstow, right on I-15. Here's the layout. Fresno is considerably northwest. I traveled Vegas to El Monte, which truly would qualify, for me, it's near L.A., back and forth weekly for 5 weeks taking Dealer Training for ARCO when I took over dealership of the service station in Vegas, 1972. Between San Berdoo and the coast it was solid buildings, highways, traffic, congestion for almost 100 miles. There is one place I recall in particular where I think 5 freeway ramps twisted and turned, piled one above the other! Frank

    Fresno has bad air...we sit in the valley.

    But now that I think about it, I did drive thru Bakersfield many years ago and I agree...it's the pits.

    This was before I even lived in Fresno, was visiting daughter while I lived in Hungary and my husband and I were driving south to LA for business (him not me) and I'd thought to myself then....who'd want to live here?

    Just remember it as a dusty nothing town...this would have been about 16-17 yrs ago.

    Of course the coast of California is beautiful. Ive only been central and southern and not northern though.

    I agree---We would never even make it as friends and I make that determination from reading your posts. However, I have been told that to Know me is to love me.

    Careful with this, Chrissy! Note that while your likes are ~ = to # of posts made, Lon's likes are nearly double his number of posts.......Just sayin'........about comparisons.

    After all, look at me! I've blabbed my little heart out 6,000 times for a measly 5,600 likes record.....o_O

    Have been to both Oildale and it's neighbor, Bakersfield. Not much there but farmland, but Bakersfield does put on a nice county fair and rodeo. The Buck Owens Museum is there also. We attended a friend of ours wedding at that museum. It was nice, but not where I'd chose to have a wedding.

    Well, our Sheriff is now in trouble. With re-election looming in the future, both the Sheriff and Mayor are said to have not decreased the crime here, like they vowed to do. With only a week to go, the homicides in Jacksonville, FL have already reached 100 for 2018. The man, who is going for Sheriff for next election says that the current Sheriff has basically done nothing to curb the crime here. He vows to do better, if he is elected. Does anyone in Jacksonville, FL believe him...…….doubt it.

    If the crime rate is high where you live now, and you aren't allowed to have the means to protect yourself, don't expect things to get any better.
