    Eh, the first couple were funny (i'm from boston, have driven in NY and LA, and can attest to how true all those are. Lost me with the texas stuff though. Prob. bc I have never driven there. And do people from colorado really hate texans that much? I thought this is where they came to vacation? :confused: An I thouhgt Boulder is the only place in CO with all the eco-nazis, the rest of the state seems very conservative.

    That's OK, we can tell by looking at the rig whether you moved here, or are just on vacation. If you are not towing 2 trailers at 35 in a 55 zone, you obviously belong here. I hate summers here, cause all the tourists and second home owners just flood this town with stupid. Hunting seasopn is a little better cause they come into town to load up the coolers and then head for the hills.

    #1 and 2 can go for residents of Boone. #6 and 8 would represent the Floridiots that come to Boone to see the leaves........

    ....and that about sums it up.
