Default hillbilly towns

I happen to live in Wisconsin, close to Milwaukee. I have never been to a hillbilly town anywhere in this state or surrounding states. I have seen some in the appalachian area. Really the only thing you could say is hillbilly around here is the farms, but honestly I rarely see farms in my area of Wisconsin, I think they're closer to Canada. If you really want to go to a hillbilly area you should just go to Hildale, Utah, Colorado City, Arizona, Green River, Utah, or the Appalachian area.

There are a few southern transplants and people from West Virginia in western PA and northeastern Ohio. WJTN AM radio in Jamestown, NY has a guy from the south hosting the Hall Closet show every weekday afternoon.

Yesterday my wife and daughter and myself were hiking back to our car from a hike along the river enjoying the weather and my daughter enjoying the passing trains. Our daughter had played in the rocks and mud, and when I carried her the dirt rubbed off on me. It was approximately 80 degrees and humid, and we were sweating. I thought of how so many of you lame suburbanites on here would have found us terrifying, walking among the mountains with our sweat and dirt. Never mind that we are all well educated middle class people, and were all cleaned up as soon as we got home. To you narrow minded posters, who are scared of your own shadow, we were scary hillbillies. I thought City Data Forum was supposed to be informative to others wishing to learn about another locale, but then the moderators allow a thread full of inane misformation posted by 15 year olds who think they are knowledgeable because they once "heard something" about a place or "drove through it once", allow this thread to persist. Is that all of the information you guys can come up with on rural people?

I think most people can tell the difference between local hillbillies and yuppie tourists.
