Definition of redneck from Wikipedia:

For other uses, see Redneck (disambiguation).
Originally used in reference to poor, white farmers, Redneck is historically a derogatory slang term to refer to working class Southerners in the United States.[1] It is similar in meaning to "cracker" (especially regarding Georgia and Florida), "hillbilly" (especially regarding Appalachia and the Ozarks)[2] and "white trash".[3][4] The most common American usage, referring to the poor rural white Southerner, is probably derived from individuals having a red neck caused by working outdoors in the sun. A citation from 1893 provides a definition as "poorer inhabitants of the rural districts...men who work in the field, as a matter of course, generally have their skin burned red by the sun, and especially is this true of the back of their necks".[5] In recent decades the term expanded its meaning to mean bigoted, loutish, and opposed to modern ways, and has often been used to attack Southern conservatives and segregationists. At the same time, many members of the U.S. Southern community have set out to reclaim the word, using it as a self-identifier, and the term has also been claimed by individuals outside of the United States.

Thank you.
Do you like outdoor activities? The area you are moving to is home to lakes,mountains,rivers and country roads that will take you beautiful places. I dont picture Saudi arabia as a fishing hotspot, but fishing may be something you consider learning. It is a great way to relax and leave your worries behind for a few hours. And the entire state of Arkansas is an outdoors lovers paradise.

At the UofA, I highly doubt it. She's already said she doesn't wear hijab, but even if she did, there are quite a few others on campus that already do. It isn't as if she'd be the only one.

Living in Fayetteville she still probably won't. Only time I ever smelled one was driving east out of Fayetteville (or Springdale) and then in the Huntsville area there was an odor. That's when you roll up the windows and turn on the AC! But just living in Fayetteville (or most of the actual cities in NWA) I doubt you'd ever smell one. A poorly maintained farm will smell bad and that smell will travel, but not that far.

trainedloser's advice is spot on- I don't know what your weather is traditionally like, but northwest Arkansas has a lot of variation from season to season. Summers are pretty hot and humid (if you're used to a dry heat, humidity will be unpleasant), winters can be cold and wet, but normally not too long. Spring and fall are just about as perfect as weather can get in my book though.

Temperature in Saudi Arabia could reach 56 degrees in the afternoon. So your summer is like our spring!

Sure, but what's the humidity like? Dry heat doesn't stick to you like the humid Arkansas weather can, so it might even out.
