Wow! We're active again.
Zebra, come on down.
I'm originally an east coaster. New England and Maryland in particular.
I've been here for almost 5 years and am pleasantly surprised at my acceptance.
Of course you will always be "that Yankee" and get a fair amount of razzing but as long as you leave that northern liberal b.s. in Maryland, you'll be welcomed here.
Also, know what grits and country ham are (I recommend My Cousin Vinny for a grit tutorial), and take the grape jelly when you order a sausage biscuit.
Of course you'll be giving up things like eggs Benedict and corned beef hash unless you move to a city but then you can buy house here and shoot of of your front porch.
You can't do that in Marylandistand.
Ive lived all over the US, and the people here in Tennessee are some of the friendliest most accepting I've ever met.
Come on down, well go shoot something.
