    SC probably is my least favorite state.

    The roads are terrible, every windshield is cracked, Myrtle Beach is full of broken glass, and it smells bad.

    Maryland, especially Baltimore. Polluted, corrupt, socialist, and the women are ugly. No wonder Poe was boning his cousin.

    Illinois...lived there a good long while "back in the day".

    I would say Iowa, but I don't remember seeing anything in that state.

    You can see that from every place not affected by light pollution. I saw the same on Mauna Kea Big Island HI and from some village in Ukraine I do not remember the name of. If you are not blinded by light of large city you can see Milky Way.

    I would say it is a different world. It is the wild west....only....east. Only law enforcement is on Rt 1 and Rt 9. and there are 3 game wardens for all that area. You can just do whatever you want, as long as nobody gets hurt, it is fine. Even the state doesn't care, they thing Maine ends at Bangor.:supergrin:

    I agree, truly boring as hell when I went through there in 93. My wife and I had just married and went to Yellowstone and came back through Iowa. Just boring is all we could say.

    I have been to about 40 of the 50 states and found good and bad in each. And I preface this with I have never had a ticket in VA or even pulled over and haven't a speeding ticket in 25 yrs. I have to say Virginia is purely anal when it comes to anyone going 1 mph over the speed limit. Upon entering the state and each county there are signs everywhere giving your the riot act about any thoughts of speeding and hidden behind them are tiny welcome to xyz county, the friendly county. Makes me feel really welcome.

    My sister lives in the Galax area of VA and has watched leo's get out with metal detectors to sweep their known hiding spots because people throw out bags of nails in the areas.

    Omaha, NE is one of the finest places I have ever lived. I was stationed there from 1982 until 1988. The weather is awful, but the people make up for it. A great community!

    A blind man would know when he's in Gary. Smells like ass there.


    I hate everything about Chicago, except for the ticket prices to watch the Tigers whoop up on the Sox. :)

    gotta disagree with you on this one. all baltimorons (not just the women) are ugly. wish someone would flush the whole pile into the chesapeake.

    I have to add eating fresh-shocked oysters on the Inner Harbor to that list.

    Been to far worse places.

    My vote is Indiana. None of my five senses have found the first redeeming quality in that God-forsaken land.

    Yeah NJ is #1 on my list. Spent a lot of time there as a kid. Haven't been back since '95 or so. Don't plan on ever going there again.

    Every state has geography that will appeal to just about everyone. Every state also has people that need burried in a pit under said geography.

    Guess my accent sounded similar so they did not pay me much attention. It's too bad you had a bad experience there. I have a lot of great memories there.
