OK, I get it. You're one of those disillusioned folks who migrated out of Cali back in the day only to return to something you can no longer afford. You're probably right in starting in Palmdale. Good luck. It's a tough road home but you can do it.
the economy ,,,only reason we lived in the av for 25 yrs and seen the raise and fall we had to come back however if we could get in the right place here like west Palmdale it would do for 12 mo then we may find a nicer place somewhere over the rainbow (LOL)
