Ok I'm living in the Armpit of the west but that is a vague term in my opinion...Meaning where exactly you are in the armpit LOL
some areas are just to crowded and to $$$.....I'm originally from the East Coast and when I moved out here 20 odd years ago it was great a new experience and it was wonderful but after time I did start to miss the area where I grew up and what it had to offer it may not have been the most beautiful place or where tourists flocked but it was home and to me still is...I do believe the Armpit of the West has it's perks and downsides just has any other area seems the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence or the one which gets the most water
Oh and I just paid $2.29 a gallon for Diesel....Not Bad
