    That stank hole New Jersey seems like it's winning.

    Kansas has nothing to offer me! Very depressing state.

    Agree lived there for 1 year of my life. Wish I could get that wasted time back! Good food though.

    Talked to my wife little while ago on Skype. She is in New Orleans area now. She said that if she had to live there she would rather immigrate back to Ukraine.

    I lived in Lubbock from 1987-1991 and loved it there. As a country boy, I really enjoyed the "big city" of Lubbock with all there was to do and the women were awesome, IMO. I missed my hunting and fishing and the flat land was boring but I had a good time there.

    For me, NYC and New Jersey are depressing places.

    It seemed as if almost every time I spoke with some one when I was there went something like this:

    "Can I have breakfast special # 2?" "Where you from, boy?"

    "How do I get to...?" "Where you from, boy?"

    "Thanks, have a nice day" "Where you from, boy?"

    I can remember walking into a bar one afternoon after work, and I asked for a bottle of beer. I got to hear,"I smell yankee", "where you from, boy" and "why don't you do yourself a favor and get your yankee ass out of here".

    Yes, the girls were hot, but the one I dated put up with so much crap for going out with a yankee from her friends and family she dropped me after a few weeks.

    As I said before, I will never go back.

    Never been to NJ but I do remember the old TV show
    "Top Cops". They would do re-creations of hero cops and their hair raising adventures. I remember one NJ cop.
    You are right about the uniforms. The guy looked and acted like Gestapo. EXACTLY like the evil black uniformed German secret police in the movies. Gave me the creeps just watching that segment. Same unblinking stare. Same chilling clipped monotone.

    But, sadly, some groups of people can't function w/o a hobnailed boot firmly planted on their neck.:dunno:

    :yawn: hands down there running away with it... :rofl:
    yeah i made that mistake once to go to houston to visit family over memorial day holiday-I'LL NEVER MAKE THAT MISTAKE AGAIN!! :dunno:
    we walked out of the airport to get the rental car @ 10pm & i about ***** my pants when the auto door opened & we walked into the oven.... :steamed:
    and that was the beginning of a 10 day trip :rofl:
    we were in vegas this past may & it was 105* everyday & that felt better than 2000% humidity & 90* @ 10pm in texas.
    we really did have a great time while we were in texas, the 10 days there we flew into houston (family) & made a big square from corpus to san antonio to austin then dallas.
    the funny part we were cruiseing down these 2 lane highways & when we were coming up on other vehicles in front of us, they would just merge over to the shoulder & slow down abit to let you pass them.
    my wife could'nt get over that because everybody up here drives like total dip*****s, when we get snow all hell breaks loose... :rofl:

    Yup. Anything above 60k or so blows. Other than that it's a great place. We have everything but real mountains.

    I would have said anything over 15K blows, but almost everything north of US 10 is pretty decent. The Porkies aren't _real_ mountains, but they're doggone nice.

    I got a kick out of the clown from Ohio dissing MI--all summer long the most common out of state plates are OH. I doubt many MI people vacation in OH.

    I said over 60 cause Midland, Alpena, Gaylord, AA, TC are all pretty nice.

    And Ohio sucks. I've driven north to south and east to west. It's more expensive to live in than MI and sucks worse. Their are only 2 good things in Ohio. Great Lakes brewing and the USAF museum.

    I live in Houston. We travel a lot by SUV - seems like we always have to go through Oklahoma on our way to wherever.

    From my house to Oklahoma is about a 5 hour drive.

    Texas has horrible rest stops - I always stop at the first rest stop across the TX - OK border and take a dump.

    It has become a family tradition. :upeyes:

    If we are not including people in our judgement, California is my favorite state I have worked in. People included, it is at the bottom of the list.
