The friendly comments here remind me of the same kind folks commenting on youtube.
It must suck being you!
Ill cheer you up by letting you know the whole country has a meth problem,i call it the nation destroyer.
Mage, GV looks like a good desert place to live.Shopping and going out to eat isnt far away.
The river for gambling or fishing isnt far either.
I hope you meet many nice people and enjoy your life in GV.
Just sayin

Believe it or not people that have never been out there have no idea what they are in for pure HELL fire heat ! Just like desert people have no idea how to handle the humidity down south..........you just don't know till you experience it for yourself

I worked construction in Phoenix,so my brain is fried enough to deal with the heat.
You learn to adapt.When at home i would get up early and do stuff till around 9am. Stay inside and maybe take a nap.
After dinner my family would go outside and do stuff until late.AC and pools make life better.
Tint your cars windows dark and have good ac.
I was working the day it was 122 outside and my boss called and said to go home.We kept working(in the shade) Ill take Phoenix heat over Florida or those humid places.

You live in a good area I guess, any noise like a hammer or saw where I live, before 9AM or after 8PM gets a visit from the police, police don't really care but if someone in neighborhood calls em they must respond. Bugs me because before moving here I had a neighbor next door that made knives and he hit steel with sledge from sunup to 11pm, and I was willing to let him have his loud noise, and never complained once.

I would think of my neighbors and not make any noise until later in the morning. I just like to putter in the yard and garden a bit.Early AM.

Listen, Mystic Mage is my wife. So we both are asking questions one of us will think of at the time. And yes we are moving to Golden Valley. We are moving from East Tennessee to AZ for my wifes health, We are both disabled and we do love the desert. As for starting this string is for us to find out more about the area and maybe get to know a few people before we get there so that when we to get to GV we do know a few people there instead of being complete strangers there. Make sure you bring lots of valuables with you ;)

To Plain Wreck,
You being an officer, can you tell me what the gun laws are there?? Do you have conceal carry? I have a FOID card and we have a couple guns. If we move there and do defend our family and property, what could happen?? We are planning to move to AZ and Golden valley looked so great for us because we like being out away from major towns and cities. But i'm not one to put up with someone breaking into my house. Other than that, were excited to possibly move there.

When the murderers broke out of the Golden Valley MTC prison almost three years ago, one absconded with the getaway vehicle. The remaining two and their accomplice (now all facing trials for murders in New Mexico) walked through the desert for over four hours, looking around homes and businesses for a vehicle to steal.

While walking, they watched helicopters that were eventually dispatched when the escape was finally discovered and reported quite a while later. They said law enforcement only searched close to the prison with the chopper.

They finally walked all the way to Exit 44 (Shinarump Drive) after having meandered a good ten miles. There they hijacked a semi, kidnapping and robbing its East Indian drivers, though they let them go free unharmed in Flagstaff five hours later.

Meanwhile, the Keystone Kops thought they knew who did it, because a confused local had innocently stopped at the prison to ask directions and they assumed it was the escapees' accomplice. An MTC tower guard had noted her license tag number and alerted police, thanks to the misidentification. I suspect they came out to the home like gangbusters, a SWAT team or whatever. It's fortunate no one was killed.

There were dogs utilized to search for the fugitive pedestrians, but they lost the trail when those fleeing walked on asphalt for a while.

The cops even stopped a train to search for the escapees. It would have been impossible for anyone to jump aboard at the speed it was going, but that didn't occur to the Einsteins who responded.

MTC had also failed to notify anyone in a timely fashion. When the released drivers called police from the Little America truck stop in Flagstaff, over nine hours after the escape, the Flag police had no idea the escape had happened.

Floyd i could tell tales about the whole country.

GV is just anouther place with a variety of people.
I imagine petty theft is a problem.Im considering a move to GV.A locked gate and a dog is always a good idea.
I tell people to exercise their rights and buy a pump shotgun and some 00 buck shot.
I well get to know the neighbors and im sure theyre are plenty of good folks in GV.
Meth is a problem in even the most remote places in the USA.These idiots usually end up dead or in prison.Ive seen it as a truck driver,all over the country.

There is a problem with meth, but the big problem in Golden Valley is the for-profit prison from which three killers escaped in 32 months ago and kidnapped, robbed and hijacked truck drivers, though it left them unharmed in Flagstaff

Well since we moved here almost 2 months ago we havent had a problem and we lived off milkyway almost the same distance to bullhead as kingman and everyone we've met here has been really nice and yes the weather will be getting warm but rather live in GV than Bullhead where you will roast here in GV we are at about 2700 ft BH 500ft and the only real full of himsrlf person is the guy who owns the gun store by the subway with his attude I wont be buying a gun from him.
As for something that happened almost 3 years ago well that was then havent you heard of any escapes since you can talk about
Also in the state of Az gun laws 21 and under open carry over 21 can be both without having to have a ccp

The killers, after leaving Flagstaff, killed two people in New Mexico in order to steal their pickup and trailer.

I'm not paranoid and you can't even spell! You probably think you're a regular Einstein, though.

I just moved to golden valley.It is a nice place quiet.Theirs not many jobs available.The tweakers here are same as everywhere,they are not too bright its easy to get rid of them as always.Not worried about it.And as in most places law enforcement seams to pick on pot heads,but tend to leave the more serious criminals alone.Nothing new about that,It is much safer to arrest pot heads over real hardened criminals.So,much like the mexican cartel problem i doubt the tweaker problem will go away anytime soon.Most of my neigbors seam like nice people,i do have one idiot next door he is from california,nuff said.Com pared to phoenix i havent seen much of a crime problem anyway.it is only 15 min to kingman,and a nice drive to bullhead city.Utilities here are very reasonable.The electric is fair not ike the gougers with aps.
