Both Utah and dentists share abnormally high suicide rates. Perhaps a connection?October 1, 2022 at 5:08 PM #826740
I love it here in RSD. Saw a coyote and a roadrunner on the same day, both for the first time in my life in the wild. Just like loony toons.
Roadrunner was just hopping down my driveway and got within 20 feet of me and my brother in the middle of the morning. It hopped away when he saw us looking at him, but didn’t seem afraid.
The coyote I saw stalking my orange trees at about 9pm. I didn’t get a great look at him, so in theory it could be a large grey unleashed dog.October 2, 2022 at 4:09 PM #826743
I love my electric pole saw from harbor freight.
I cut about 40 dead branches from neglected orange trees this morning, and the battery only went down to 75%.
I am going to need some kind of tilling machine soon. The soil is extremely hard, I kept breaking solar lights because their plastic spikes couldn’t break the ground.
The level of rooster noise is ideal. When I did my Mexico study abroad, the roosters started at 5am and woke up all the dogs that then started barking, and this cacophony went on until 6:30. Not nice.
Here one of them is next door and others are close, but they are chill and the noise is like a faint and charming farm background noise.
I also like the extended golden hour period that starts abound 5 when the sun goes behind the mountains, but it is still very bright out and everything looks golden until sunset.October 2, 2022 at 7:36 PM #826744svelteParticipant
Sounds like you are loving life- very happy for you!
Our last house we had roosters about 1500 ft away…up on a hill with nothing between our house and the roosters. It was very pleasant at that distance, we enjoyed the sound also.November 30, 2022 at 12:42 PM #827057
2.5 months in, still loving it! 5500sf fills up fast, already thinking about a 2nd building. I am glad I went big.
It is nice that unlike in OB, I don’t have to worry about maxxing out the land, I can throw up a 1000sf 1-floor place pretty easily without damaging the value of the property.
In addition to really liking RSD, I am growing fond of El Cajon city. So much to do, such great variety of housing and shopping, so family friendly. We probably go into “downtown” El Cajon once a week and do a triple-grocery run of Sprouts, Grocery Outlet, and a rotating back and forth between a mexican or arab grocery store, of which there are many. I also like the quick drive to Jamul and to Granite Hills (unincorporated area just NE of El Cajon)
Hooleys Irish Pub & Grill: Creative Irish menu and great environment
Crafted Greens: Very high quality and healthy take out. Like Tender Greens but a bit better in every way.
Royal Sweets: Very high quality desserts at 1/2 the price of coastal bakeries. Middle eastern run, and the selection is about half middle eastern / half European.December 9, 2022 at 8:49 AM #827113
This RSD house is awesome and a great location:
I am not a fan of the “Baghdad Ct” street name. Probably a prior Chaldean owner named it, and you can give it a less Saddam-y name since it is a private street with only this one house on it.
I’d probably buy this house right now if I didn’t just buy a similar one!
