If you have an RV you can put it in one park for $305.00 @ month easy access to every thing . It is dry but it is hot also ( june -Oct. could get as high as 122,) but most time it is great, will be going back there for the winter.
Remember too that Golden Valley and Kingman are about 3,300' above sea level.

Golden Shores/Topock, Az along with Needles, Ca. all of which are 20-30 miles S of BHC are almost as hot. Both places are about 600' above sea level.

To the OP; the other posters here do recommend either Arizona, California or southern Nevada. Try realtor.com to give you ballpark prices on homes.

Joshua Tree National Forest is right around the corner from there. Also, the area is known for the health benefits. A long time ago, a lot of war veterans went to the area when they were sick & injured because of the healing benefits of the water springs or something like that. The place actually became a town because of the military coming there to get better! I've never been but, want to go because of the health benefits! Palm Springs is to the south and I've heard it is somewhat of a healing mecca in the present day and very expensive.

I pray you find somewhere that will be an environment that you will not only be comfortable but will also thrive. God bless you!
If I had to move back to SoCal---------the Morongo Valley/Yucca Valley/Joshua Tree/29 Palms area along Calif Hwy 62 would be on the top of my list as well.

Default Think about $$

You didn't state what sort of disability you're on but if it's SSI the payments are much higher in California than in Oregon,or I presume in Arizona. Try check with your local SSA office before you make any plans,and best, best wishes to you.

I have heard that said as well.

That is one big reason many with 'issues' live in Needles, Ca.

Small 'Podunk' town in a lot of regards but very inexpensive and across the river here in Arizona there is shopping, etc.

The one big downside about Needles is the extreme heat in the summers but no winters at all.

I hate to point this out but the thread is four years old. I'm sure he's settled somewhere by now.

Forget the ocean, look for a nice lake town and it opens up a ton of possibilities.

And they never logged back into the site to check for any responses. Topics like this should be closed.
