Review of Alamogordo, New Mexico

Alamogordo Living
Star Rating - 3/3/2012
I've lived in Alamogordo for two years now after living in Tacoma, Washington (too much rain, too much crime) for 20 years. Generally, it's a nice little conservative town with low crime, cheap housing and little traffic - probably a good place to retire. However, I can't stand desert living! There's too much sun, no lakes/rivers/ocean and too much brown everywhere(yuck)! I can hardly wait to move almost anywhere else that has more water, trees & isn't so flat.

Oh! One more thing: HUMIDITY DOES SUCK ASS - AND BALLS, plus everything in-between! You kick ass. Yes, I am truly in my 50’s. Happy as hell about it too.

Suck it up guys. Your just being lazy apes if you want all grass. I'm a photographer and Brown grass/Green grass doesnt matter. They are all beautiful. Sure, Some places are most beautiful but the sunsets and sunrises here are to die for, going to white sands is the best. Alamogordo is mostly filled with germans, russians, and asians. Because why? they want to get away from jerks. this is a small community and almost everyone will treat you better than those worthless cities. No one cat calls you, No one is on the sidewalks most of the time, and this is a Army-base town. If you come here and you are apart of the army, Damn right you will be respected. Sure, its dry, but humidity sucks ass. it makes your skin shine, and polish but here you dont have to take as many showers, Twice a day, Three times a day, like wth? And one more thing... No sluts in this town. So Playboys; BYEBYE. ~ This is a respectable Town As long as your not me right now whos obviously pissed for your idiotic behaviors.
