Boiled P-Nutz are a regular sight when traveling. Grits. BBQ takes all day. Soda is fine, as long as it's a Coke

There's a FL culture; You've just got to make your way far off the beaten path to find it. My uncle, who owns a cattle ranch outside of Bradenton, is a perfect example.

We've headed over to their place every Fathers' Day for the past few years for a family get-together. This year, we had turtle, frog legs, gator, venison, fresh-caught fish, chicken, pork, etc, etc, etc... everything EXCEPT Beef; can't eat into company profits, ya know
Here's my JK posing next to his old CJ (his Farm Jeep which still sees daily use!):
From Arkansas. Retired and moved to Colorado four years ago. I'm still trying to get used to these Colorado accents here. I miss my Razorbacks, BBQ, fried catfish, and crawfish boils. I do not miss tornadoes, humidity, or ice storms.
Right now im in scenic Lawrenceburg, Indiana. Which nobody has ever heard of but it's only about 15 minutes from Cincinnati, Ohio so there's that. Our main attraction here is corn and soybeans but there's still some pretty good places to go off-roading at if you know where to find them.
I'm originally from the Chicago area, and actually that's where most of my family still is. Don't know where I'll end up when I get older but I'm thinking of moving out west eventually
