Sorry that you feel that way!!

Yeah, we down-east Mainiacs sometimes get painted with the same broad brush that covers other parts of New England. But once you get east of the Penobscot and north of Bangor, it's a different world. Tust me..we ain't like the others!!

I stashed my little Kershaw in my shoe...
then we rounded the last turn and it's a full on airport magnetron.
I pulled out the knife and held it up to security, the lady at the gate said ask the cop on the other side for it. I was hoping for an amnesty bag or what not.
He says "This is illegal in NYC. Are you PD/FIRE/US soldier"? I reply that I'm not. He says he can confiscate it or we can call involve the police. I tell him to enjoy the pocketknife I've carried for a good ten years. Wanted to tell him that back home in Reasonableville I carry a gun, but followed the GT rule and kept my mouth shut.
We got back to the car (our rental), BIL parked just into a bus zone, the city got us for a $150 parking ticket and a $40 pocketknife. I won't get into the bill at NOBU but my sister in law is never to order dinner again. Ever.

UMHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH - NOBU!

I've had the opportunity to explore the city once. It's not a terrible place if you get off the beaten path a bit. Decent food and an interesting environment.

I've been to a lot of states, and all of them offer something a little different. I love the midwest, especially the Dakotas. I like the low population. California is a beautiful state, but I'd never live there because of the politics and massive population.

I used to live in NC and hated it. Can't understand why so many northerners move there. Florida is nice for vacation, but I'd never live there. Actually, I don't really care for the South in general. My favorite region, the Midwest has hospitality, but lacks the crime and poverty of some places in the South. Oregon and Washington are nice too, but I can't see myself living on the W coast.

Well since you asked. New Mexico, or should I say, little Mexico. Some pretty country but that is the only good thing I can say about it. I encountered more overt racism there that I did in Korea.

Let me illustrate. My wife and I walk into a clothing store, national chain, a group of employees where in a corner talking. No greeting despite eye contact. We look around and they made no attempt to help us find what we were looking for. I say "excuse me" in a little louder than normal voice, nada. A Hispanic couple walks in and the immediately get help. That is just one example of many.

The population works very hard, to avoid working. If they put as much effort into working as they do avoiding work, I bet their GDP would rival California or Texas.

Let's talk about green chille. It is in EVERYTHING, ice cream, wine and everything in between. They mix it in with vomit, or is it menudo? Or pasole.

Not allowed to conceal a back up gun.

That is one license I'll let expire. I would much rather live in my car than live in a mansion in nm.

I found most people in NM that weren't cholo to be friendly. Much more so than midwesterners.

I almost moved to NM a few years ago. I applied to UNM for graduate school, but decided to go elsewhere. Albuquerque seemed nice, but it was too big for me and didn't have a college town feel to it.

Places I have lived:

Upstate New York - 18 years
Iowa - 4 years
Kansas - 2.5 years
Texas - 3.5 years
Tennessee - 1 year
Louisiana - 3 years
South Dakota - 3 years
Texas (again) - 16.5 years

I have enjoyed each and every state I have ever lived in and found each one to have an individual beauty all of it's own that I could identify with and appreciate. I have also found that people are the same no matter where you live - there will always be jerks, scum, *****e$, as well as your salt of the earth, compassionate, give you the shirt off their back, and plain old good folks. I think what you choose to focus on has a lot to do with how you perceive your experience in any given place. Had I chosen to focus on the negative of a couple of those locations in particular, I could have made myself absolutley miserable. But, I didn't, and I have had wonderful times in each and every state I had the opportunity to live in.

I really like so dak, except for their "mild" winter. When you walk out and ice crystals start forming on your eyeballs, that's to damn cold for me. The wind is wicked. The cold I can deal with, but add the wind chill, no mas.

I definitely wouldn't want to live in New Mexico but I do like to visit or vacation there on occasion (normally once a year). Lots of beautiful interesting places to see and explore.

Admittedly lots of NM is extremely dirty ..... roadside parks, etc. Some cities in NM are extremely dangerous..... Las Vegas, NM and Espanola, NM (and a few others) come to mind... Visiting these two places can be risky ...... Be armed and alert....

Gun rights aside, I don't care for Oregon(live here), New Jersey or Rhode Island.

Places I would never live in because of gun rights, California, Illinois, New York, Mass.

In comparison to Ohio, Michigan is "God's Country"!
I've lived in OH, drove through it too many times to count, and I can truthfully say that Michigan has much more to offer.

I will admit that Detroit can (and should be) scary to visitors but there's much more to Michigan than just Detroit.

Well as someone that was born in and lived in Massachusetts for pretty much my whole life I can tell you I can't wait to escape, again.

The traffic around the Boston area, the attitude of people, the ever increasing level of taxation and other ridiculous laws, especially gun laws, and other daily annoyances.

There are a few good things like the
variety of food, proximity to the ocean and the recently great local pro sports teams that make it bearable.

Massachusetts, where it's not illegal to illegal but you're jailed for driving in a snow storm with a 20oz Coke

I plan to head north to NH in a year or two. Long term, I'm thinking south like the Carolinas or Florida.
