Well we are arriving in San Antonio tomorrow from California. The drive hasn't been so bad since we made a lot of stops. We are at a hotel for the night in Fort Stockton and I have to say I am a bit nervous. Nothing against Fort Stockton, but from what I have seen, I don't think I could live in SA if it were like this. Coming from Orange County, California to this part of Texas is kind of a shock from what I was expecting. Is SA anything like Fort Stockton? Then again, I have not seen anything other than the hotel I am in...so I guess I shouldn't judge so soon. I just don't see much of anything around me.

Fort Stockton is almost 300 miles west/northwest of San Antonio.

That's like Bakersfield to the San Diego or San Fran to LA. A great distance.

Of course SA is nothing like Fort Stockton.

And SA is slightly better than El Paso (in case driving through El Paso freaked you out).

Yeah, only "slightly."

You never cease to amaze me Robert.

I've only been to Fort Stockton once. Don't worry, SA is nothing like Fort Stockton.
Actually.... is there anything in Fort Stockton besides hills???

El Paso is a good comparison to SA. They have a similar small town feel, and have similar demographics and are both very Texan. I don't see anything offensive in that at all.

I have lived in El Paso and now live here in SA and belive me there is more than a slight difference between the two. Living in El Paso is like living in a town in Mexico. You feel like you're not living in the US. El Paso to me is a place of extremes: extreme weather, extreme landscape, extreme culture and extremely boring.

The fact that you can say they have similar demographics is enough to offend Let alone saying "slightly better." You need a new day job and a new shtick.

El Paso makes San Antonio look like South Beach or Manhattan.

Goodness gracious. Why would suggesting that El Paso and SA have similar demographics offend anyone? Everything that "boricuapower927" said about El Paso sums up perfectly my impressions of SA, so maybe the two cities are even more similar than I thought.
