A small town in between Fresno and Madera sometimes referred to as "The Chos". Basically everyone knows each other so rumors/gossip spread at lightening speed. Most kids complain about how they can't wait to get out of the Ranchos only to miss it when they leave. There isn't much to do except to T.P. your friends house, go mud bogging in an empty lot or field somewhere or take the 10 minute drive into Fresno. All in all it's a pretty sweet place to live and the people there are, for the most part, good people.
Person A "Yeah, I'm from the Madera Ranchos"
Person B "Whats that?"
Person A "Ugh.. its in between Madera and Fresno."
"We went to TP Larry's house last night but we woke up his dad so called the sheriff, came out with his shotgun and they both chased us around the Chos all night!"
Person A "Did you hear Matt had sex with John's mom?"
Person B "Yeah, I've heard that from 5 different people already."
Person A "But that just happened an hour ago!"
Person B "That's the Chos for ya"
