In all honesty, I don't understand the hyper-obsession with race and other "identity" categorizations here on C-D. As long as you're a good person and not a jerk, what does it matter what race someone is or what the racial makeup of an area is? I mean, hello??? lol

This post pretty much mirrors my own sentiments, having lived mostly in Pennsylvania, but in a 98% white, rural community. When I was younger, and vacation time from my job accumulated, I would pack one bag and just go "exploring" for two or three weeks, with Greyhound/Trailways providing most of the transportation -- just to remind myself that my home base was a lot different from the real America.

Utah.

Love the location, the topography and the proximity to the likes of Nevada, Arizona and California on driving trips.

Also, I've grown quite fond of SLC in my visits.

The intellectual banters with proselytizing Mormons is quite humorous.

Real America? So only what ever city you went to is "real America" and any rural area isn't "real America"
