Nevada has undergone some dramatic demographic shifts; they will almost certainly continue. Consider recent elections.

Perhaps you should visit these places before you call them armpits. You obviously know nothing of the area...

ETA: I spent 30+ years in the Central Valley; just moved away last year (not far). I like Nevada, seriously considered moving to Reno.
If I were thinking of moving to Nevada, it would be the northern part of the state. I would avoid the southern part and anything to do with Vegas, but that's me.

Nevada especially southern, is becoming nothing more than an extension of CA.

Also check out Amargosa Valley, NV as an alternative to Pahrump, NV.

Question/Concerns are mainly about Health (we have Kaiser) and property/vehicle taxes.

We could keep our Kaiser plan and just return for Doctor Appointments, we do ALL our Meds via U.S. so that's not really a problem. Yes it would be nice to switch to local Doctors..

Right now we pay close to $2000.00 a year in Vehicle registrations alone.

Thanks LeeB
$2000 for vehicle fees? What do you drive? A pair of 2018 BMW 7 series? And unless you lie to Kaiser about where you live, you’re not eligible to be part of that HMO.

Thank you

We grocery shop in Sparks a few times a month. Still getting familiar with Sparks and Reno area.

I've been investigating van/rv living and Pahrump seems to have a decent rv community. I haven't seen anything on registration fees but, before I moved to Arizona from Minnesota I contacted the office here to find out what they would be. They were much lower than Minnesota.

In Minnesota they are called DMV, Department of Motor Vehicles. Here they are DOT, Department of Transportation.

I was curious because I planned to move here in September of last year, which I did, and my tags for Minnesota were good until the next April. But, I sucked it up because once you have an address here, you only have 10 days to change your license and registration.

So give them a call and see what it would be. I don't know what Nevada calls their department though.

How many vehicles do you own and how priced do they cost...yikes. There are many ways to cut costs and life's priorities, many are going to NV so why not join in. I love CA and choose to change lifestyle. I don't need high priced autos or houses. NV never appealed to me. But many are headed there.

Next time, stay on 80 past Sparks for 20 min or so, and you will be in Fernley.
