I like IL except for the weather. . South IL is really nice to cruise through but I don't much care for Chicago to be honest. It's a nice place to be a tourist but living here isn't that great. I think I just dislike the North in general though.

High five to Jen for giving props to her state. I know people have moved to IL from nicer places and hate it and that's understandable but really, it bugs me when people insult Illinois without ever having come here. There really is some wonderful stuff here.


Thanks dear.

There are non-Illinois people who talk shit about Illinois? I always figured Illinois to be one of those states that are kind of exempt from the shit-talking...I mean you have places like Idado and Kansas and Nebraska and Texas and Alabama that get pooped on all the time, but...yeah.

Anyway...I think Michigan itself is a nice state. There are some rural towns there that I love (like Shelby), but I don't think I'd like Detroit itself because I don't really like big cities. Like Cletus, I don't really like Chicago, either...it's a nice place to visit if you have the time to do all the touristy museum things, but I don't like actually living here.

My boyfriend's grandmother lives in the UP. I got to visit there. She lives nearest to Sault St Marie. However, in her home out in the woods she is really and truly in the middle of nowhere. She has a nice home right on a river which is pretty cool. There is no civilization for miles and really as soon as you enter the UP you might as well say goodbye to civilization for awhile. There are no malls, walmarts, or grocery stores in most towns. Hell, you're lucky if you find a gas station. I got see all of the great lakes under ice at the time I was visiting which was pretty cool. I might post some pictures later.

Yeah I forgot to post a link to the 'Soo Locks'. Those are pretty neat too.

Growing up military and having lived in close to twenty states I have no complaints with Illinois. It has a nice blend of the Midwest affordability and solid job market. It's a very liberal state (I believe Bush lost by the greatest margin of any state and second only to the D.C. district) and is for the most part lacking in fundie religious freaks which some other Midwest states can't say. I even like the bitter winter for the most part. My main issue is the lack of ocean. Lake Michigan is just not a viable substitute. Maybe I should look into Oregon, Washington, or Maine.

Iced Over Waterfall

Some of my very own pictures from my trip. I was there in April which still equals winter.

I spoonered that when I first read it. I was thinking it got so cold up there, they had special socks for going to the loo at night.

I don't see what's wrong with Texas other than the political spectrum. The beaches are nice to vacation at, and the food (in southern texas) is simply wonderful, and the people aren't really hateful at all. Unless you're gay, then you're screwed. Michigan is nice too during the winter. Smile

I see your point. You tend to see alot of people still in the closet. It's rather sad.
