You just said don't be judgmental, but then you grouped South Florida people as one of the worst lol.

This is just a personal preference. From my experience having lived areas heavily weights in one or the either, I definitely prefer the other. I love trying new foods and trying new things. From my experience, areas that are heavily redneck, while most are friendly, they aren't open to trying new things. They choose to stay ignorant about other cultures and countries. They would rather go on a fishing trip then travel to Tokyo or Dubai. They would rather eat a burger they've eaten a million times then try bbq Kama (the jaw of the fish) etc.

Quite a few of them come from south of the border, too.

Whatever floats your boat...not my cup of tea, I would hang more with the sweater over the shoulder wine sipping luxury car driving types, just suits my business model. If those places draw the bumpkins away from civilization, then more the merrier...

Most already left. Mission accomplished.

You must be wealthy, what is it that you do? I'm more of the fishing, no-luxury leasing type. You must make more money than I do, surely. Right?

One video is in Louisiana and the other is in SW Fla. The one in SW Fla is very popular and has a big presence there.

Not the same location, plenty of Youtube videos on this place. I don't get it, but I'm not a country boy, the girls well look, a little slutty and rough. Not something I would bring home to Mom, but that's just me...

Closest one to PB County is Okeechobee Mudfest

Along the coast yes, but I see these jacked up trucks and the mentality that goes along with them often in Wellington even saw a couple in Boca...the "Soot Life" truck was in Boca and it also had a "Florida Born" sticker or "Born N Bred" over the state online something like that, see a lot of this and I rarely see this in other states, people are so bent on letting complete strangers know the fact they are a Native.

I work in mix of Finance, Mergers and Acquisitions, Wealth Management. I work with a lot of HNW clients and also companies both large and small. "Wealthy"? Well I do not own a G650 or fly around in one, do not own a Lambo or Ferrari or a yacht or even a boat, but I do like nice cars and motorcycles, suppose I like to invest in things that give more of a return on investment, real estate and etc.

besides, who cares if lifted trucks look out of place? maybe they're not trying to impress? i have a truck. i could buy/lease a BMW or Lexus to try to impress like many others do in S FL.
My clients do...and beyond that. Many fly out of Boca Executive and PBIA in their business jets that cost upwards of $60M and they often own them, or charter them and it's not cheap.

Lifted trucks are stupid, dangerous and most of the people who drive them are very aggressive. Try hard to tell me it's not intentional to slam down the gas so that you intentionally leave a huge cloud of toxic diesel soot into the faces of the cars behind you. I see this all the time, and often it's not required but done because they are total douches. Also they are often illegal, illegal lights or light bars blinding people or lighting up the back of people's heads in the car in front of them.

I have a BMW M5 and a couple of other cars too, but I could go out tomorrow and buy a truck with a Cummins Turbo Diesel and get it jacked up and add big tires and all the fixins and try to impress like many others do in S. FL...
