petunia you are right (from another post) I believe we aren't neighbors but don't live that terribly far from each other. You described your town, it's not this one or an adjacent town but likely within about 30 min.


My husband has allergies too, hence a huge reason we didn't bother to see if we liked the town first.

He just needed a higher elevation asap in order to breathe better. His breathing is much better.
Did your allergies calm down upon moving up here?

Oh yes, it is soooo much better now. At times, it does get smokey up here. Thats no fun, but only occasional. My immunologist said high elevation and dry air.

I think you are probably closer to 80 than I am, and probably a bit further east. That's my guess, anyway. My job is right on 50, but I live north of 50, and a bit south of 80.

2012 Chevrolet Equinox, 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, 2017 Lance Travel Trailer..... Ok in looking at my registrations they are close to $1500.00 for all 3 and they are going up in 2019

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.
I'll try and see who I call...….

Just my observation having lived in both California and Utah and having spent a lot of time traveling through Nevada....

It's like living in an ashtray.

Oh and we just bought a house near Monterey. We're tired of Utah politics.

Perhaps you'd like to buy our house in Utah?

I'm sorry, but I have to laugh when everyone is trying to talk you out of Pahrump. What's up with that?

The same thing happened to me though when I mentioned I was going to move to/by Sierra Vista. Everyone had all kinds of ideas about where I should move, and that was never my question.

All I wanted to know was how to contact the office to change my car registration. I ended up telling folks, 'I'm sure you will enjoy that. Personally, I'm moving to Sierra Vista.' There's really nothing more you can say.

The thread title is "How About Nevada?" Not "I'm Determined to Move to Pahrump, So There"

I don't think any of the responses were out of bounds or across state lines. Keep in mind that unlike you, this is a couple that already made one move for retirement and regretted it.

I think we were being helpful the best way we knew how.

Yes we know Pahrump is HOT and there are water concerns. But we have the same thing here in the Central Valley of California.....


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
I like Arizona better but Nevada is better in some ways including overall taxes I believe are lower although housing is higher in Nevada for the most part.

My buddy Ronnie Mund is moving to Nevada to retire shortly. He is a limo driver in NYC and wants to get out of the rat race. I think he wants to avoid Bobo's driving test before Howard fires him. He likes the Vegas nightlife and clubs especially Club SIXTY NINE, lets get ready people! I think he is going to open an animal clinic with his girlfriend as his post retirement gig.

Nascar has a track out there also so he might be able to get the pace car out there for a few laps in his Monster Energy uniform.

You seem to be in an argumentative mood today going by the threads I've been reading. Happens to the best of us after experiencing stress. Hope your day is better.
