I lived in Western MD/WV for a year and holy crap, those people are seriously still fighting the civil war down there! If I said I was from PA, you'd swear I was from a third world country...Needless to say I didn't make too many friends, so after my year of school, I was outta that place!
Everyone sported rebel flags...oh yea, and those ugly brass balls off their hitches!
I am a northern girl but I'm not a yankee. The western part of the US doesn't really fit into the whole Mason/Dixon division. We are Westerners, we get along with just about everyone. Except some of those crazy Californians. (I'm kidding, Cali folks, I'm kidding)
Good girls go to Heaven. Jeep girls go where ever they want.
I've lived in NJ, NY, CT, MD, DE, FL, & GA; the majority of it was Florida though.
Is "Southern" a state of mind? Does it involve bigotry still or just an outdoorsy lifestyle?
I own a firearm but I'm not in the NRA, I don't vote along any particular party line, and I don't belong to any organized religion; I don't think I can legally claim "Southern", despite my address...
Eastern Washington, we're a suburb of Texas but we had nothing to with y'alls little squabble.

Arguing with a truck driver is like wrestling with a pig in mud, eventually you realize the pig enjoys it.
I'm originally from Puyallup, Washington. Roughly ten mins from te Canadian border and I've lived in the south most of my life... Don't like it so much down here though. Went from woodsy to cement within Ten years. And alotnof assholes moved to Charlotte as well.
Make Sure Everyone is Dead within hearing and sight range. Only then, you can say any area is cleared.
Born in south Georgia. Family is still all there. Live in Oklahoma which where I leave actually sided with the confederates(Cherokees actually had slaves too) so yes. Not a racist. Not a bigot. But I have some rebel pride. Southern girl here.
Born just south of the line, but spent almost 20 years around Chicago. I finally escaped back to civilization 5 years ago. That has to be the worst example of government in the country. San Fran might come close, but I doubt it.
Born and raised in Maine...pretty hard to get more Yankee than that.....

"The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius"-P.J.O'rourke
