just wait 'til you get old and creaky and need all that sunshine to warm your bones.  Just take a life-jacket with you 'cause it might be under water down there by then.

Good, because that's how I fucking roll.

Ohio is also tied for being the home of the most presidents. It's a state that thrives on achieving great goals.

As for where I would go if I won the lottery - I'd probably buy a good plot of land in Ohio or Kentucky and build a car guy's dream garage. I'd also have a vacation home in LA and the Caribbean.

Isn't Kentucky and most of Ohio flat? Where is there to drive? :huh:

If I win the lottery I'm fucking off to the hillside and buying a remote piece of land connected to the twisties and building a giant garage there.

The eastern portion of both states are on the west end of the Appalachians (mountains and foothills).  Probably accounts for about 20-25% of Kentucky and 25-30% of Ohio.  Hocking Hills in Ohio is where some of the car mags based in the midwest (like C&D) go to do road testing because you get winding, hilly roads and it's fairly scenic for photo shoots.

If you turn left out of my neighborhood, you are on a twisty road.

The variety of amateur racing/autox events within driving distance is also higher here than most anywhere else. I love the LA car scene but you have to deal with traffic and other than San Diego, it's a pretty long drive to go to an event in another city. That's why I'd only have a vacation home there - go to some of the big events each year but have a home base further east where land is cheap and I can hit some of the other awesome events.

Yea I would avoid LA at all costs. You can't get the PCH anywhere else, but there are equally great roads elsewhere in the country. Anywhere there are mountains there will be good roads.

I see. I was asking because I'm pretty ignorant of places outside my small bubble. :lol:

I do know that northern GA, South Carolina, etc have some amazing roads as well. I'd love to do a cross country motorcycle trip at some point.

New York has more, if you count Grover Cleveland twice, as both the 22nd and 24th presidents of the United States. 

Still, Ohio has inspired those six men to do anything they could to get out of there, even if it meant going to DC, a city built on a swamp.

Dude, Ohio is where most of the car mags go for winding drives if they have a comparison test. Hocking hills is like the tail of the dragon but more woods.

Naw, I live in Charlotte. Lol @ the rest, and more importantly lol @ winning the lotto and staying in Ohio. I still can't believe you passed on a chance to move to Germany to stay there. W/e though man you have it all figured out :lol:

So Charlotte metro area is 2.3 million in population. Cincinnati is 2.1 million.

So proud of you for going to such a bigger pond than me.

Sorry you can't make friends outside the state of Ohio :cry:

I'd rather have no friends than be trapped there :lol:
Unless you're from NYC (I know that's your home and people from that over packed island think the world revolves around it) , LA or one of the other few HUGE cities Cle, Col and Cincy are plenty big and offer more than enough to do!

Generally speaking, people who move from one place to somewhere else do so because they didn't like living where they left from.  Doesn't make where they left from a bad place, just not the right place for them.  My dad, after spending his entire life in upstate NY, moved to Florida a few years back and loves it.  All I hear is how great his little town down there is and how all of his friends down there are people who moved from the Rust belt like him and they also love it and would never go back.  You couldn't pay me to live in Florida.  Not that upstate NY is the greatest place on the planet, or that I'd stick around if I landed a big jackpot, but I'd absolutely live up here over Florida if those were my two choices.  Different strokes for different folks.

Yeah I could go down to Florida and live for free but fuck that place.  I cannot ever imagine living there.

Ohio can also claim the two presidents with the shortest terms and, I'm fairly certain, the most to die in office.

If I won the lottery, I'd move to different parts of the world every few years. Not necessarily because I don't like where I am, but rather because life is short and I'd like to experience the world. Not just go see the sites for a couple of weeks, I'd like to experience what it really feels like to live there.

Some places I'd like to try:

- Kalifornia
- Boston
- London
- Paris
- Spain
- Somewhere in the Mediterranean
- Japan
- South American (although I dunno about that...I want to live for a while with my money instead of getting murdered)
- Somewhere nice in India, if that's even a thing
- Australia
- New Zealand
- Somewhere in Africa although I'm not sure where

Once I exhaust the places I want to try, I'll probably be at the age where I want to have a more permanent home location. Then I'll settle down there.
