Ought to be good if everyone there has a good sense of humor like you. We went to Smuggler's Notch and drove over to Maine. Maine intrigues me. The air was so crisp and clean. Why do the police officers from your area follow cars around that has N. C. plates? It made me very uncomfortable. Don't you like tourist up there?

Been on Highway 3 a lot. I have family there--like grandchildren! And it is Civil War Heaven. Not to mention all the presidential homes.

CA or NY I think - lots of land, lots of options.

When you said NY, I thought your reasoning would be diffirent, besides its size. There are plenty of states larger than NY in land area, and more varied than NY also.

In terms of land, it is 30th in size, but for its size, it does have great variation.

None have the variety of NY, from the biggest metro in the country to the lakes/forests/mountains upstate, ocean, etc. It is large for a northeastern coastal state - I find the south uninteresting and no state without one of the top few metros would be able to rank #1 as "the most interesting state to live in" for me. What were your choices again?

Iowa:

The Iowa Caucasus are very influential (due to media coverage) to political candidates and where people talk about who they want to support and vote with everyone in the group knowing and trying to convince everyone else. So political candidates want to get to know Iowans and gain their personal support.

I wish a better state would be first with the choices in candidates. I may visit Iowa but it would never be because I want to have anything to do with their politics. When it comes to voting, I think people do a better job from inside a voting booth. Iowa needs to do some adjusting or let someone else be first. When these voting rules started we did not have a national media. I would prefer that all states vote the same day. That way maybe one of these days we may end up with a better president.
