I live in California right now.

CV has it's rep for a reason. The waves suck, parts of CV are probably the worst in San Diego, and the border is right there.

I've been down there a few times and work 15 minutes away. Would never want to live in that part of San Diego.

Sounds like he/she doesn't like the demographics. I guess that's a valid opinion. Its just too close to the border for comfort. Or maybe he/she is illegal and doesn't want to encounter border patrol.

This is the point I was getting at.

If its for the demographics then just say it. Its an anonymous forum.

No need to be PC about it.

There is no beach in Chula Vista only a bay front
The waves do suck in Imperial beach.

That is insane to me, there are much better ways to spend your life versus being a slave to the 15 freeway, including gettnig a second job to pay for a mortage in San Diego
There is a serious error with your math. It is 10-15 hours per week ( 5 X ( 1-1.5 X 2 )).

I grew up in Hawaii and my wife is half of the demographic you're talking about.

Your assumption couldn't be further off. I just don't like the area. Nothing more.

Was being general. Wasnt talking about any particular demographic. So your assumption of mine couldnt be further off.

But CV is certainly is certainly unlike Eastlake or Otay Ranch.

Understood. You just dont like it period. Eastlake or not.

I think the "they don't call it Chulajuanafor nothing" and "practically living in mexico" comment rubbed people the wrong way.

Sounds like you work on the docks in National City or on Coronado Island since you work for the navy contractor. Do you car pool with others? The drive just seems soooooo long and do you plan to do it until you retire or is it just temporary. I could probably do it if there was some kind of light at the end of the tunnel but to just do it day in and day out with no end in sight would drive me batty.

I complain having to make that drive 4 times a year or so to go to family gatherings. Even my brother in-laws dad from San Diego says "what the hell you move all the way out to the desert for?"

Thats interesting. We have another property in Murrieta that a relative lives in. We are up there 3-4 times per month.

I definitely would not commute from that Temecula/Murrieta area if I had the choice. We dont have kids and up there, its totally family centric.
One of the more redeeming factors are the schools in that area. That fact cant be ignored in relation to housing prices. There is nothing that compares in SD that does doesnt cost at least 3x as much based on that alone.

Life is full of small tradeoffs, but for some people the tradeoff and opinion to live there is probably in the minority.

As far as the comments about CV, this is an online forum, so when someone says "I dont like something" it doesnt seem that unreasonable to ask what more specifically it is. If I were reading it coming from somewhere, it helps to be somewhat objective.

But when the question is dodged and comments inserted like 'Chulawana' or 'living near a border city' its pretty tough to read between the lines.
Anyone could presume anything with comments like that.
