Average home price in Farmington, New Mexico, based upon current listings:$239,000.

Are you considered "poor" if you live in a $239,000 house these days?

Republican stronghold, damn right!

I was in Grand Junction for the first time in March to attend the funeral of a family member.

I was surprised it was so dry and barren, with a river running through it...it looked a lot like Farmington, but with 10 times the people.

Farmington is much nicer, based upon population levels alone.

Oh, and we still have more freedom.

Nice Cabela's store up there, tho...

depends upon the space number you occupy in the trailer park.

Ever been to Farmington? There really aren't that many "trailer parks". Most mobile homes are out on a third of an acre or better.

Leave it to the leftists to be judgmental.

I'd never live in a city like Albuquerque, for instance. Too damn many people stuffed together like sardines.

I've lived in site built stick homes and mfg. homes and can't tell the difference. Home is what you make it. My mfg home cost 1/4 of a site built home, sits on 2 full acres with the closest neighbor over 300 feet away. Beats the elbow to elbow homes, apts and parks in town.
.
Chances are, you see a mfg home on an acre in the rural area it will be a retiree and there is no mortgage. Peace of mind to own it free and clear unlike a quarter million home with mortgage payments.

That's the point. Most people in Farmington cannot afford a $239,000 home; that's why we're the mobile home capital.

A "city like Albuquerque." LOL!

Sweetie, Albuquerque is a relatively small city and very unsophisticated.

Don't care. It's a city, cities suck, and that's all that matters.

And maybe you should quit being a typical judgmental lib, who doesn't know what he/she is talking about.

If I did live on Crouch Mesa, I'd be just as happy. There's room for my livestock up there, too. I do ride go carts, do some Jeepin, ride my horses, and do some target shootin' and plinkin' up there, tho.

Exactly. My house is a hybrid of old mobile home and stick built, and I've remodeled every room the way we want it. Eventually, we'll have the mobile home boxed in straw bales and stucco. And we've done it all ourselves without a second mortgage or improvement loans. We're two years from payoff on the initial 15 year note, and our retirement place, which is even FURTHER out in the sticks, is already paid off. Man, I'm looking forward to no house payment!

Bwaaaahaaahaaahaaahaa! You talk like Sportsman's Warehouse is a local business. I suppose you think Wal-Mart is "shopping local" too, eh?

I HAVE visited Sportsman's Warehouse in Farmington. And compared to Sportsman's Warehouse in other cities, the selection is dismal. They haven't had anything I needed yet, except for a pack of slip on mantles.

Globe for my Coleman 200A? Nope. Cabelas.

Generator for my Coleman 200A? No generators for ANY lanterns.

Replacement for the miniature backpacking spatula I lost somewhere? I bought the original at Sportsman's Warehouse in Albuquerque. This one doesn't stock them..smaller store excuse. Bought the replacement at Sportsman's Warehouse in Saint George, Utah on the way to camp in Death Valley, California.

Butane/Propane cartridges for CampingGaz stove and lantern? Nope. Big 5 and the ACE Hardware in Hurricane, Utah. Plus the inventory I bought out from the now defunct Outdoor Outlet in Saint George, Utah about 10 years ago. Keep about 15 or 20 of them around, just in case.

You see, I don't need new Chinese-made camping gear, I only need to maintain the good stuff I already have. And apparently, the local Sportsman's Warehouse is about useless for that.

This town is dirty-looking and trashy because there are so many here with your mindset. No class. Just live like trash. All the junked cars littering the place.....well, all the junk, period. It's sad that people think this is normal and acceptable.

So. You don't like cars. And because you don't like cars, you feel that your beliefs should be forced upon everyone else?
