Just out of curiosity, wondering what states members are all from? Wherever you consider yourself from, anyway... where you were born, where you live now. :)

I was born in Racine, Wisconsin...lived there til I was 10ish. Then the folks moved us down here #1 because of the crime...we were right between Chicago and Milwaukee. I went to the most prestigious Catholic school in the area and there were days we couldn't go outside because of so much gang activity and drive-by's...if that tells you anything about the area. 2nd reason we came down was because there was huge potential for the manufacturing industry back in the early-mid 90's. My dad opened his own shop, got as big as 10 man shop netting 4-5 mil a year...then free trade hit and endedup losing everything by '07.

Overall, I love the south waaaaaaaaaaay more. I could do without the month long 90+* stretches though. Most my friends joke about me getting kicked out of the north because I was infiltrating for the south and tried to start a revolution. So I've always been a sothern boy at heart, was simply misplaced for a while.


I bet that's more information than any of you cared to know about me...haha.

Bethlehem, PA here.

I hate it down here, but my family is here now so I'm stuck.

And I like pork barbecue.

Not really though. I hate the weather, and the taxes, but I enjoy the towns here. Wish I could have the PA weather with everything else NC.
