    Sounds like a nice place, I prefer the small/er towns.

    I like visiting old, small towns, there's lots of history there.....ghost towns, are the best, there's a lot of them around here.

    Smaller Towns (Oak Run is smaller & more Ultra Rural than your nearest town is it not ? )

    I live in a pretty rural place, myself. My second home is in a mountainous area, with around 400 people.

    Completely out of sight and out of mind.

    Meth labs, desert hermits, Mojave rattlesnakes, coyotes, burned out hippies from the 60's, wannabe burned out hippies from the 60's.

    Cheap rent but if you can't pay the rent, who's going to do anything about it ?

    In Wonder Valley the gun is the law.







    Wonder Valley was not substantively populated until the United States Congress approved the Small Tract Act (STA) of 1938, a homesteading law that facilitated the leasing and public-to-private transfer of ownership of parcels of up to five acres to United States citizens willing to improve the land by developing a residence, business, or recreational structure.[4]

    Typical “Jackrabbit” homestead cabin remains in Wonder Valley.

    Thousands of cabins and other structures built by homesteaders, particularly during a period of popularity in the 1950s and 60s, have since been left abandoned. Although a cleanup effort in the early 2000s resulted the demolition of hundreds of abandoned structures,[5] numerous structures built by Small Tract Act homesteaders still exist in various states of use and repair.[6]
    More recently, Wonder Valley has earned a reputation for being a fashionable destination for artists,[7] a trend which is frequently attributed to Wonder Valley's association with nearby Joshua Tree National Park...-> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonder_Valley,_California
