    It lies at the bass of the San Bernardino Mountains. That gives you access to some killer terrain. Hiking, mountain biking, camping in the summer/fall. Snowboarding in the winter/spring. You're about an 1 hr to 1.5 hours to the beach from there.
     
  6. Frank has a song about it.

    Frank Zappa - San Ber'dino Lyrics

    She lives in Mojave in a Winnebago
    His name is Bobby, he looks like a potato

    She's in love with a boy
    From the rodeo
    Who pulls the rope on the chute
    When they let those suckers go
    (Yeah-hey! Suckers!)

    He got slobberin' drunk at the Palomino
    They give him thirty days in San Ber'dino

    Well there's forty-four men
    Stashed away in Tank "C"
    An' there's only one shower
    But it don't apply to Bobby

    You may think they're
    Dumb an' lonely
    But you're wrong
    'Cause their love is strong
    Stacked-up hair
    An' a cheap little ring
    They don't care
    'Cause it don't mean a thing

    Looka there . . .
    They don't care

    Best-est way that
    They can feel-o
    Out on the highway
    Rollin' a wheel-o
    He's her Tootsie
    She's for real-o
    Trailer park heaven
    It's a real good deal-o
    Real good deal-o
    Real good deal-o
    Real good deal-o
    Real good deal-o

    The rest of their lives
    In San Ber'dino
    Gonna spend the rest of their lives
    In San Ber'dino
    Gonna spend the rest of their lives
    Down in San Ber'dino
    Come on with me
    Come on with me
    Come on with me
    Down in San Ber'dino
    Just 60 miles, 60 miles
    Down the San Ber'dino freeway
    They got some dark green air
    An' you can choke all day
    That's right!
    Gonna spend the rest of their lives
    Rest of their lives
    Rest of their lives

    Say now,
    Ain't talkin' 'bout Fontana
    Ain't talkin' 'bout uh uh
    Ain't talkin' 'bout uh uh
    Ain't talkin' 'bout uh uh
    Ain't talkin' 'bout the Redlands, no no
    ZULCH is the auto works
    I'm tellin' you
    That's where they take
    All the cars that they hurt
    Come on and let's all go down to San Ber'dino
    Ooo-ooo
    Ooo-ooo
    Ooo-ooo
    Let's-a go down down down
    Down in San Ber'dino
    Wouldja b'lieve it
    Wouldja b'lieve it now, come on
    San Ber'dino
    San Ber'dino
    San Ber'dino
    (Got to call it)
    San Ber'dino
    (C'mere)
    San Ber'dino
    San Ber'dino
    San Ber'dino
    San Ber'dino
    (Oh, God, they all stay there)
    The rest of their lives
    In San Ber'dino

    Oh Bobby, I'm sorry you gotta head like a potato
    I really am
    (Ketchup!)

  12. In a recent thread I read that you can't drink in public in most places around California. Assuming that San Bernadino follows this horrific pattern, I'd say it sucks like all the other places in California where you can't drink in public. I'm now going to turn to my bartender and tell him I need a go cup for my pitcher and head out.

    I know that Ken Griffey, Jr. played minor league ball there. I only know that because I still have some of his minor league card sets from San Ber'dino. I lived near Seattle his rookie year and I was a nut about him. Not so much anymore. :D

    Anything constructive you can offer.
     
  17. I think it was jonathanD that promised/threatened to leave. Not sure if he/she/it is going to San Berdoo.
    And I believe they have construction there. :)
     
  18. There's a song about it on the new Mountain Goats album Heretic Pride, in stores everywhere.

    I like the Eagles of Death Metal song of that name.

    Edit: it's actually called San Berdoo Suntan

    Tapping time with one good finger
    I got this girlfriend and she's a swinger
    We make plans and then
    We head out to San Bernardino
    We get gas at the local P & M
    Buy a coke in a can made of tin
    We drink fast because
    We're headed out west to San Bernardino

    And we shall miss Carolina
    And the east coast as opposed to the west
    But we won't shed any tears though
    Nor even be sad because we know
    The western desert is the best

    I filled a bag with cigarettes and apple wine
    We'll hit the road again at 10 minutes to 9
    Me and this girl I think she's pregnant
    And we're headed to San Bernardino

    And then when we hit Texas
    We'll stop in Amarillo for a bite to eat
    We'll stop on over in Dallas
    And visit my friend but we can't stay
    For more than a week

    I've got the south in my veins
    But California in my mouth
    And that's the simple reason
    Why I'm leaving the south
    Me and this girl and she's so foxy
    And we're heading to San Bernardino

    That was close
    We crossed the Tennessee state border
    They would've locked us up by the sheriff's order
    Yes we're freaks, but they can't touch us
    Out west in San Bernardino

    And we shall miss Carolina
    And the east coast as opposed to the west
    But we won't shed any tears though
    Nor even be sad because we know
    The western desert is the best

    I filled a bag with cigarettes and apple wine
    We'll hit the road again at 10 mintues to 9
    Me and this girl and she's so foxy
    And we're headed to San Bernardino
