I was wondering where is the highest concentration of high roaders lived, so I put up a poll.

It's within walking distance... only been there once. Too expensive. The Victory brewery is down the road a ways in the other direction... college kids tend to be a rather intellectually dull lot, at least in the pub.

The ultimate irony: my favorite pub is in another state (where I work frequently). Good home-brewed beer. Inexpensive. Good conversation.

I agree with the posters who said Minnesota and Michigan are Midwest. There is a big difference between Montana and either one, except far northeastern Montana. Actually there is a kind of common cultural/ political area along the northern and central Rockies, and adjacent areas, supplanted or modified in some areas by urban migrants.

I'm trying to sort this all out. You've got the Northeast and Southeast, but the Middle East is on the other side of the world. To get to the Far East you have to go far west. You have the Mid South, the Mid West which is the center of the country, but no Mid North. There is the Southwest, and the Pacific Northwest, but no regular Northwest. So, if you live along the Mason-Dixon line, you would either live in the Northsouth or the Southnorth. This is all so confusing...AHHHHHHHHHH... :banghead:

I am sure that they were just having fun...right? :)

I have also heard pleny of times anyone from Pensylvania north called Yankees.Funny to me, as that is 700 miles to the SOUTH of where I am from.

I love that Texas was listed separately in this poll. That's how it should be!! Texas is a state unto itself, unlike any other, and we tend to think a little differently from the rest of the country. Of course, I was born here and have lived here all my life. The only other state I would even consider moving to would be Montana, primarily because of the beautiful countryside, and of course their intelligent gun laws that are extremely similar to this greatest state in this great nation.
