I think I'd much rather live up there, although I wouldn't enjoy the storms.

I LOVE the storms! We sit on top of our hill here and watch them roll in, or roll by.....

I love 'em too, but only when they don't howl and throw stuff at me. My gf from Michigan moved down here and she is still in awe of how many we get.

Funny stuff.

I'm an Ohio native. I still love Ohio, but this is funny:


Just left Michigan after living there for 4 years. This pretty much sums it up:


Moved to Oregon in December. Like it so far. Green is good:


We are trying to figure out where we want to move to. We want to go out west, for sure, but cannot decide between Colorado, Oregon, Cali, and Texas...

Oregon is my top choice, followed by Texas. Colorado is beautiful, but the housing costs are outrageous!

I was glad you came up with something good because I had nothing. A pretty nice State actually, as long as you can overlook the whole grunge music thing.

Moving on.........

Next stop was Iowa!

Honestly I have never stopped in Iowa. So I decided to look up some interesting facts for that state and these were the top 10. Lol

1: Ripley's Believe It or Not has dubbed Burlington's Snake Alley the most crooked street in the world.
2: Strawberry Point is the home of the world's largest strawberry.
3: The state's smallest city park is situated in the middle of the road in Hiteman.
4: Scranton is home to Iowa's oldest water tower still in service.
5: Dubuque is the state's oldest city.
6: Crystal Lake is home to a statue of the world's largest bullhead fish.
7: Rathbun Dam and Reservoir is the largest body of water in the state.
8: Spirit Lake is the largest glacier-made lake in the state.
9: West Okoboji is the deepest natural lake in the state. Its depth is 136 feet.
10: Imes Bridge is the oldest of Madison County's six bridges.

So I think this photo sums up Iowa nicely.




Moving on..............

Kansas part of the breadbasket of America. A word of advice to anyone traveling to Kansas. Don't go!!!!!!! In the summer you literally take your life into your hands to travel in that state!!!!!

The storms may eat you and your little dog too!!!




The best thing about that state is one hippie chick I know.



Moving on............

At last we stop at the most perfect state in the union. Tobacco and liquor are cheap and we have the fastest women and horses.

Where might you ask is this paradises?

Kentucky of course!

According to the Indiana Beach commercials, there's more than corn in Indiana. Okay, yeah, there's a lot of corn.

The real estate prices aren't much better around the Portland metro. Also, all new developments are built right on top of each other. The worst part is the road system sucks. It can't handle all of the expansion. Yes, I recognize that new people moving into the area, like me, is part of the problem.

Other than that, Oregon has been great so far. I like the weather, plenty to see and do and people here seem to be very friendly and helpful.

I guess I'll get back on it. I was about to give up, participation in the thread was at a low. I don't know how I do it but I figured somehow someway I had pissed somebody off.



That and I was still laughing at Iowa!!!! Lol

By far that was my favorite post.

Louisiana

I hitchhike through Louisiana once. Great people, great food, The best swampbillies in the south !!!

The biggest problem was getting in and out of the place!




Moving on..........

Maine

I've watched grumpy old man, Stephen King lives there, they were the first state to attempt to secede ( war of 1812) a A friend of mine that lives there once bragged to me that they just got a Wendy's.



Add all of that together with the weather and I have no intention of going there.





It kind of makes you miss Colorado.

Maine did not join the Union until 1820. They voted to secede from Massachusetts.

You got me there. I never should've used the word state. Do you always sit around and correct inaccurate information on threads that are about giggles?

Or do I just merit special attention from you?

It's not his fault. I think he has a Johnny Mnemonic type thing in his head, in this case an encyclopedia. That, or his brain is hardwired into the internet. Some things just have to come out.
Just some gentle teasing, AugustusMasonicus. I'm not trying to be snarky.
