    I was noticing how many are from "the South" in the USA. I thought I'd submit a simple poll. Now don't get picky and edit in another location. Close is close enough!

    I'm currently residing in Missouri, which I assume is North Central since it wasn't aligned with the CSA during the War Between The States.

    My heart tells me I'm from South Central, since most of my life has been in Arkansas and Oklahoma.

    Central Alabama, where everybody else wishes they lived.
    :laugh:

    And of course the board is heavily Southern. In my town, there's a Baptist church almost on every corner.

    Utah does not really consider itself SouthWest. How about a Rocky Mountain choice. OR Mountain West.
