Thank you for all your suggestions. I am unfamiliar with most of them but will look em up.

Kernville, Cresent City, Alturas, lodi, Arvin, Thousand Oaks and Pozo. (pozo is to small, but thanks)

Do any of these towns have any good rivers near them? Kinda like to keep steel head fishing and kayaking.

Some of those are a joke ... idiots pulling your leg.
You might consider San Luis Obispo county on the central coast .... less expensive than Santa Cruz County, Monterey County, S.F. Bay area, etc. and coastal areas south of SLO. / southern part of central coast.

I added to my post above but i'm thinking every one of those recommendations was insincere (unless i missed something) .... bored city-data-forum people having "fun" at someone else's expense.

Trying to find the combination of good weather and inexpensive in California is the ultimate isometric exercise; lots of pushing and straining while going absolutely nowhere.
I'm thinking some towns near the American River might be where you'd want to look. It gets hotter than hell in the summer most places inland, but it's beautiful countryside and a nice place to live.
SLO County is wonderful, but it's hard to find cheap there. Maybe places like Oceano, where you'd find lower rent.
Oops! Just noticed your last post about the American River area! Check it out!

Kernville was a legitimate suggestion. I've been there many times for rafting and trout fishing and camping. It is located were the Kern River feeds Lake Isabella.

We used to go up there and raft, fish, party, rock slides, camp, hike, 4 wheel. Lots of fun.

We used to go up the weekend after Memorial Day. Memorial Day was loaded with thousand of bikers. The next week it was a lot easier to drive around and find a place to camp.

There's a sign on the road from Bakersfield to Kernville that reads something like "The Kern River is Dangerous. Since 1968, 225 people have been killed. Be careful."

When we drove back home after a four day camping trip, the sign had been incremented to 226. I guess someone had died in that time or they updated the sign while we were there.

I found an article to this:
