    I like Washington State.

    We have a little bit of everything here. Fields and plains, a gorge and large river (the Columbia), a big Dam (Grand Coulee), a big Mountain (Mt Rainier), a volcano that has been active in the last 30 years (Mt. St. Helens), many mountain ranges (the Cascades and all the other smaller ones), a sound (Puget Sound), a coastline, even some nearly rainforest-like areas on the Olympic Peninsula.

    We have mud, we have rocks, we have hills, we have sand dunes, we have swamps, and we have trails.

    Dry places, wet places, flat places, snowy places, rugged places, smooth places, rolling hills, streams, rivers, valleys, orchards, farms, urban areas, rural areas... And of course, inbred people in my corner of the state.

    What about YOUR state?

    Washington sounds nice... I oughta visit someday /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    My state is flat and has weed everywhere... a few hills... Unless you go up around Yellowstone, then there are some big mountain type things... Medicine Bow National Forest is kinda nice, pretty much the only place in the state with TREES...

    I don't like mine. Why I'm hoping to get out of it ASAP. Laws here are made by big-dollar bussiness that buy political offices /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif, and screws it's taxpayers /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Good point, but anywhere's gotta be better than here. Indiana's state laws are what suck.

    i cant remember who it was, but i once saw a stand-up comedian who said something along the lines of:

    "you ever notice how every place has an attitude? like brooklyn, for example, everyone there is 'tough.' the people are like 'yo, we're from brooklyn and we're tough.' same with texas. down theyre, theyre like 'hey, we're from texas and we like things big.' then theres indiana, where im from. we're like, 'hi, we're from indiana and we're......gonna move.'"

    NC is nice. lotta mud, lotta beach ( /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif ), lotta mountains, and a little bit of sand to play in. wouldnt move anywhere else. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    My state? Massachusetts has too many laws, liberals, traffic and tons of stupid people driving mini-vans.

    Wheeling areas are becoming almost non existent here.
