no problem - I understand,,, fwiw, that is why I had the and the at the end of the post...

In any case, surely even a mad mann would even know that of those four states, Tejas for sure would not be one to (a) degrade, and/or (b) peeve off...

Anyhow, its all

San Antonio, btw, that is a very nice town. Love what little time I got to be there.

Midstate Illinois and Iowa are fine. I'll take them over the I-81 Hick Corridor. Heck, I'd take West Virginia over that.

Ohio isn't boring. It leads the Midwest in high taxes, teenage pregnancy, and the dumpiest malls, car dealers, Burger Kings, and excuses for police patrols. Ohio is TOO exciting ... except for the area around Findlay and Lima, which is really boring, although Lima apparently has a high crime rate. I'm not allowed to bash it on the deck though ... my parents' neighbors in Michigan are from Findlay. They have a really "cool" accent though. Once again: Ohio isn't boring, it's exciting ... but so is getting thrown off an unmaintained ride at Six Flags.

It's hard to hate on Ohio. Ohio is all things to all people. You've got the Dennis Kucinich, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, Mentor/Painesville Northeast, the Findlay and Toledotucky Northwest, the All-Buckeye All-County Cow-Tipping Center, the Hocking Hills Hicks of the Southeast, and the Bob Taft & Procter n' a' Gamble Cincy. You can't hate on all of that ALL the time!

Texas wasn't very boring last March when we came across I-40 in a storm wondering when the next lightning strike would be or how close we were to the tornado when we heard the warning on our car radio. It was also rather interesting to see the trucks after the tornado hit. One was on its side and the other looked like it had tried to climb a tree.

It was also not boring when we finally found a place to stay for the night and the storm found us again and the motel parking lot started filling up with water.

I will agree with the person who said North Carolina is boring. Sometimes boring is good. I think my blood pressure went down 30 points when we drove across the North Carolina line. Oh, those nice boring mountains!

Never been to Texas, but I think it would be rather dull, like Oklahoma.

North Carolina was rather interesting. Mountains, piedmont, and ocean.

Really? What's their last name. There's a good chance I know them or who they are.

BTW, I really couldn't care less what you think of my hometown. That's your opinion, and if it keeps you out of the city that's even a bigger plus for me! XD

Completely different state from Oklahoma. The immediate areas bordering Oklahoma may look the same. But the more you get away from Oklahoma, the more different it is.

I have to say Pennsylvania is just pretty depressing all around . Lots of jerk water towns. Not much beauty.

Every time I cross that line from Maryland into PA, I get a sick feeling.

Not only that- you're pretty much within a day's drive to everything. Close enough to the deeper South- yet close enough to New York and the large northern cities.

The natural beauty of Virginia is only rivaled by North Carolina or Tennessee.
