WOW! Recently we've had an influx of new members form some exotic places, such as Tasmania and Serbia, then there's Celtica in Brittany and the list goes on...

So... I was just wondering where are YOU from? I understand some of our ladies might not want to pinpoint where they live for safety's sake, so how about a country and a state or region?

I will get the ball rolling...

I live in Wytheville, which is in the southwestern area of the state of Virginia in the U.S. It's a very rural area with a lot of Civil War history. Its beautiful here and surrounded by mountains on all sides which are ESPECIALLY lovely when covered in fall colors and winter's snow! The temperatures here are fairly mild. It doesn't get REALLY hot summer, but the winters rarely get super cold. We only average two or three major snows each year, and a major snow is typically no more than 5 or 6 inches.

Well, I guess that's about it. So how about it? Where do you live?

Obviously, I live in North Carolina, just outside a small town, Broadway. I'm sort of on the border between the peidmont, the coastal plain and the sand hills. It gets hot in the summer (and humid), can get fairly cold in winter (record is -9 F). I'm in the Cape Fear Valley region where Highland Scots settled in large numbers in the 1700s. I grew up closer to the mountains and miss that area.

Wiz, my younger son and his wife are in Richmond; so, for now anyway, they are Virginians. (My older son is just a few miles out from San Francisco.)

I am from Michigan. I live about 45 minutes north of Detroit in a city called Port Huron. Even though I've lived here all my life and am now getting antsy to move on, I think Port Huron is a great town to grow up in. It is not huge but then again it isn't small. Sarnia, Ontario is five minutes over the river (that is on a good day without any traffic on the Bluewater Bridge). Speaking of the bridge, it was the sight for a few movies, have you ever seen Bless the Child? If you haven't you really should. The scene where she is in the car falling off the bridge is suppose to look like it is in New York, but obviously it is much too crowded there to shoot that scene, so they came here and drove a car off the bridge (don't worry she does not die in the movie wink.gif). It was the highlight of most people's day to go watch a car flying off the bridge, I wonder if they ever retrieved the car from the river? I can't remember.
But anyways, the winters can get to -10 -doesn't very often but it can- and the summers can get up to the high 90s although it feels like it is in the hundreds. We have the beautiful Lake Huron and tons of beaches. I think I was spoiled having such a large body of fresh water so close because I am not a fan of salt water unsure.gif I get a bit nervous... I have met people on here that are from Michigan too so that's cool, I'll stop now so they have something to talk about...

I live in NJ about an hour south of Philly, PA. The people around here like to call it "God's country". It is nice if you like farmland.

Like emerald-eyedwanderer I am also from Michigan. I'm about 50 minutes north-northwest of Detroit and about 45 west of Port Huron. bye1.gif hey neighbor!! I live in the small town of Flushing, which is just north of Flint. I've been here since 1980......my daughter was the Homecoming Queen here the year she graduated (2000). I work at the Post Office in the neighboring town of Clio. As em said there's Lake Huron near where she lives, but Michigan is surrounded by water. Lake Michigan, Lake Eire and my favorite Lake Superior also form our borders. That's why we are the Great Lakes State.

If you like the cold the Lake Superior shoreline in the winter is a good place to be. The last two years I have gone with my brother for a winter adventure. Temps. can get as low as -25*F with easily 4 feet of snow on the ground. Very beautiful!!

I'm from Germany and I'm living in a town with around 30.000 inhabitants, right in the middle between Frankfurt and Koeln (Cologne).
My town has a beautiful old town originating from the Middle Ages with half-timbered houses, an old cathedral and narrow lanes with very old pavement stones and old bridges crossing the river.
On the other side there are also many shops and department stores in the more modern part of the town. The flair still is a bit ancient and this is what I love about my town. smile.gif

It sounds beautiful, Gabby. My mother's family came from Germany (family name of Ultsch) so I've always planned on visiting. I've always wanted to learn to speak German too,
bye1.gif Hi neighbor. I've been through Flusing, a nice town. I haven't been to Lake Superior though. The furtherest north I have been is Newberry in the U.P. I heard it was beautiful though, I mean it is the largest one, it's has to be special.

I live in Chapel Hill North Carolina "The Southern Part of Heaven". Chapell Hill is the home of the University of North Carolina, the oldest state university in the United States. It has all the amenities of a college town with great weather. I worked in the Research Triangle Park just east of town until I retired and have stayed to retire here.

I grew up and went to college in Michigan, so reading about the Michiganders here brings back memories. I lived on Lake Michigan in Traverse City and Lake Huron in Alpena, as well as in Detroit, Saginaw, East Lansing and Ann Arbor. The winters are better here in North Carolina.

Hi,

I'm from Gainesville, Georgia, USA - it's a small southern town near a large lake, in the foot hills of the Appalachian mountains, about 140 miles northeast of Atlanta, Ga. It was once known as the chicken capital of the world, but no more. It is starting to turn into an Urban town - no longer the small country water hole but a loud, fast-paced, noisy town. Lived there all my life, but now I spend part of the year in Rome, GA. going to school at Berry. I think it's really awesome to have people from all around the world writing in and talking together. Guess that sounds kind of lame, but I am still getting used to chat rooms and forums - not very internet-user-friendly to tell the truth.

Realm: northern Canada - somewhere between the treeline and civilisation

male





I live in a sub-arctic region of northern Canada called the Northwest Territories. It is a vast expanse of land, close to the treeline. My town is called Yellowknife. The nearest town is 4 hours drive and the nearest city is 18 hours of driving from here (Edmonton). We have lots of deep water lakes with the best fishing for Northern Pike and Lake Trout in North America. We see the Northern Lights nightly, that is when it gets dark - because we are so far north we have 24 hr sunlight in June and July. Although remote, it is a great place to get away from the materialism and rat race of the southern cities, and to get back in touch with nature.

Anyway, if anyone wants to learn more about the northern parts of North America, I'd be happy to field your questions.

Yellowknife......one of my dream destinations. I am so jealous wink.gif . Maybe someday I will get there. A couple years ago I tried to transfer to Kodiak Island Alaska. Hard to believe I missed out sad.gif . Didn't think anyone else would want to go unsure.gif .

Wow! MacA, sounds like you live in Wonderland, sounds nice! biggrin.gif As for myself I live in the beautiful Appalachia Mountains of WV. We have the best fishing, white water rafting, boating, rock climbing, hiking, trails and trails to ride your ATV and the list goes on. All four season are great. In the spring the mountains come alive with so many different wildflowers and the fragrances smell so good a person could get rich if they could bottle it up and sell it! Summer time it's cool in the mountains and as green as Ireland. biggrin.gif Fall of the year the trees are ablaze with yellows, oranges and reds, and then winter time in the mountains are awesome. Some winters are a little harsher than others. We get a few bad snow storms ever now and then. That's ok, the cold just makes you snuggle a little closer to your hunny! biggrin.gif I'm probably about an hour and a half from WizardofOwls, I guess you could call us neighbors! Hi neighbor! bye1.gif
