I been here at ATS for a couple of months and have recently been wondering how many fellow Alabamians are here on ATS/BTS. So if you are from the Heart of Dixie come on in and say hello.

I know I'm not from the Heart of Dixie but I'll stop in.


Howdeeeeeeeeee Ant!!!!


Just because I'm not down in the Heart of Dixie, doesn't mean that I ain't from a river valley or a holler from South of the Mason Dixon Line. Believe it or not Ant, some people think that the Mason Dixon Line stops at the Southwest corner of Pennsylvania. When in fact it turns north and then it follows the Ohio River south to the Mississippi River.

Actually what I posted wasn't a redneck joke at all.
It's actually the name of a song that Hank Williams Jr did back in the early 1980s.

If it sounded like that skeppy, I'm sowwie!!


Forgive me skep?

You know skeppy.....................

THere are some parts in the south (mostly around where I live) that would absolutely frighten the hell out of people. Then again, there may be parts in the north that would scare the pants off of us. Then there are places that will skeer anybody that's not familiar with an area.

This is true, Gimme and because of you being in the south and your pride in the south the Heart of Dixie extends itself to you. Not sure about Skeppy thow. Ain't to sure she's Dixie material yet.

I retract my statement. I have learned many important life lessons from po'ed red headed southern women
. The most important lesson I learned was shut up and get the hell out of the way

I don't do swamps, where I am from they're not too many swamps so not familiar with proper procedures in navigating swamps so Unless it is an absolute must I won't be dealing with any swamps.

Here's another thang about dah South that I have learned.......

Just about any fire department here have members that are all volunteer. Take West Virginia, out of about 450 - 460 fire departments. Almost all of our departments are volunteer.

I will blame in on how many rural communities are in the south. It’s mostly just the big southern cities that you actually get paid to be a fireman.

It's the same exact way here too Ant.

I live in Kanawha County here in West By Gawd Virginia. We have thirty two departments here in the entire county. Out of those thirty two departments, only six departments have full-time, paid members. The names of the departments I've listed below.

Yeager Airport Rescue.
Charleston.
South Charleston.
Dunbar.
Saint Albans.
Nitro.

Those are the only paid departments here in the entire county.
The other twenty six are strictly volunteer.

Ya know, it's kinda funny I have a lot of friends in South Louisiana that seem to think ANYONE living north of Interstate 10 is a Yankee! LOL

[I don't care who you are but...........

That's the really Deep South righ dere!!! If they think that anyone living north of I-10 is a Yankee, then I guess the same thing goes for I-20 and I-40. I must be a Yankee then cause I'm north of both interstates.
