Where Yall From?

Oct 2, 1998
Well now that the "community" feel is right. I thought it would be neat to know where everyone is from. Many friends have been made here and it just might be the person you made friends with does not live to far down the road. So Where Yall From?

Me, I am from Jacksonville Florida, Grew up in Tallahassee and was born in Weisbaden West Germany (when there was a West Germany).

Best Regards,
Mike Turber
Born in Chicago, raised in the Philippines, joined the US Army after college, now a civilian working in New York City.

Born in Folsom CA. (right ACROSS from the prison), moved to Salem OR. (age 10), currently reside in San Diego CA.

I do consider myself an Oregonian. I am simply staying in Cali. for a short period of time.

Hopefully, in the not too distant future, I will call my self an Arizonan (Arizonian?? Zonie??)

I was born in Michigan 34 years ago,have lived in Arizona for the past 5 years,, nice state to live in ,but I do miss the awsome deer hunting we had back home!
Born and raised in Oklahoma.


Born in Brooklyn (ya gotta friggin' problem wit dat?

Been living in South FL for 11 years or so, due to work.

In five years I hope to be living in a state with mountainous terrain (AZ, NC, ID, MT or somesuch) where my motorcycle won't hate me for living in a flat environment.

Born,raised, and still here....Southern California. Can't seem to get outa here!
I was born, raised, and still live in SOUTH CAROLINA, the home of the longest deer season in the US, General Wade Hampton[ who carried a double edged BROAD SWORD into battle in the War of Northern Aggression] , and some of the best Sporting Clay courses in the Country.

Well, I have lived in about 30 of the 50 states, air force brat. But currently I live In Greenville North Carolina. Unfortunately My wife got transfered here so i have to live somewhere where it is flat and lifeless..

I've been living in Utah since I was 10 days old. Lived in Provo for about 7 years and then mover up to Salt Lake City and I've lived here for the last 8 years.

Blues: I remember this one joke about Brooklyn. Brooklyn is so mean even that a blind guy can say "Hey, What are you loookin' at!"
I was born in Winston-Salem, NC.

I lived in Johnson City, TN for a few years when I was about 10 years old.

I've lived in Charlotte, NC for 27 of my 30 years.
