I would never live anywhere in the rural Great Plains ever again.
I would not live in the Southwest or the Deep South.

I would not, could not,
in the rain.
Not in the dark. Not on a train.
Not in a car. Not in a tree.
I do not like them, Sam, you see.
Not in a house. Not in a box.
Not with a mouse. Not with a fox.
I will not eat them here or there.
I do not like them anywhere!

You do not like
green eggs and ham?

I do not
like them,
Sam-I-am

It wasnt limited just to the midwest I was listing areas that are stereotyped to have a lot of redneck types, also with tornadoes and things. Also i live in NE Ohio, and most people think that it has a lot more in common with PA or the NE/Eastcoast then the midwest or south. To see rednecks in Ohio you have to go in the rural areas in the west, middle and southern part of the state.

The same thing applies to the south, when you're in big towns/cities you wont see many "rednecks". It tends to be this way anywhere, from Ohio to Idaho, anywhere you look. It is just sterotyped with the south/parts of the midwest. I would say Ohio has just as many as Arkansas, which is where I am originally from, and am proud to say so!! And yes, i would definatly not consider Arkansas part of the midwest it is definatly part of the south culturally. Also, Oklahoma doesn't have a midwest feel either, more of a southern/southwestern feel.

I always thought southeast Ohio was the most "rednecky" area

SE Ohio is Appalachian and redneck.
SW Ohio has a good amount of the same.

But any rural areas in any state may fit a description of "redneck".

Everett, WA (25 minutes north of Seattle)

- gloomy/rainy.....old mill town that thinks they have "cleaned up".
- Patchy. Can't figure it out. One street OK.....another street not???......Fine if you stay in your house on your street, but what if you kid bikes into the "wrong" area??
-A State Prision located right in the downtown....next to the Kids' Ice Rink....the schools...and the residential homes?? Bail Bonds everywhere....and when the fellas get out of prision....there are many housing developments taking them in right next to your children's school......
-Naval Port in city

NOT my cup of tea.......

Good news is.........drive south........for about 10 minutes and you enter really nice areas like Mill Creek, Mukilteo and further......Seattle.
Beautiful places!! (When the SUN is out!!......which is hardly EVER!

Northern Alaska. Far too cold and isolated from the rest of the world. If I had to go there, I'd go to Barrow.
