Fixer Upper


For some reason my middle son has talked about buying a cheap home in Trona for a couple of years now, so that “Trona” has become a byword in our family for a bad idea. So while browsing Amazon Prime videos not long ago, we came across the 2005 comedy film Trona, and had to watch it.  If you view the film, you will get a better understanding of why this edge of the earth is so cheap. In Trona’s defense, a community group was attempting to clean up the town, but the 2019 earthquake put a damper on the project. As old houses under $50k in California are like finding a needle in a haystack, Trona or not, we have to post it.

    Couple hundred miles from L.A. Isolated and desolate. Located on dry lake bed where they extract and ship millions of gallons of chemicals yearly. Thats the good things about Trona…
