So far since I've been looking at different areas in Reno I've heard the terms "spun valley" and "Fernleybama". So I take it Sun valley is tweekerville and Fernley is podunk central? any other terms I should know? this could be helpfull if I pursue relocating there.

I hear "Ferntuky" all the time.
So then it would be Falabama?
A couple of others:
Cartoon City (Carson City)
Sackatomatoes (Sacramento)
San Josie (San Jose)
Over the hill (anywhere in Cali (California)) As in "I'm heading over the hill this weekend if the snow isn't to bad."

it's just a ways from Reno, so the prices are lower. if you don't mind a 30-40 minute drive to Reno.

Fearnly isn't to bad for a farming community. About a 20 minute commute to Reno, maybe 10 or 15 to Lockwood if you get a job with Granit out there. A couple of people I work with live out there and love it.

Yeah, the distance keeps prices somewhat lower in Fernley. I work in south Reno, and it is almost 40 miles from my house to the office. Of course, a 40-45 minute commute is really not that big of deal, and is maybe ten minutes more than what I would have to deal with coming from the North valleys.

It isn't quite the hick town it used to be. With the crazy real estate market in Reno, alot of typical suburbanite families are moving in. I think most of the newer areas have homeowners associations and restricitons set up to keep guys like me out...

I guess I should have said a 20 minute commute to Sparks.

Heres an oldie:
