Mississippi is one of the best kept secrets and I hope it stays that way!
When I first read that, I thoguht it said that the homies were so exquisite... I was thinking: WTF?

Never been to MS, good weather?
The weather is EXCELLENT practically year round. We see snow about once per year and it only lasts for a day or two. I never hardly have to wear a jacket. The scenery is magnificent with rolling hills.
Wow, that does sound nice. Do you do a lot of outdoor activities? I think enjoying the outdoors is a dying thing among a lot of the youth today. There is so much to explore and adventures to experience, yet so many just want to hang around inside and get out of shape. At least around me it seems that way.

I have a camper and love to fish & camp. There are festivals, flea markets, etc. I go camping as often as I can. There is nothing like getting away from the daily grind and taking in nature.

two places

Hawaii - Yes its expensive but only rediculous when you live in Waikiki, I love the beach bum atmosphere and the weather and the bays and oceans adn surfing MAN! I miss Hawaii

San Diego - My favorite city in the world (I have been to a few so I can make comparisons) Great military bases to tour, awesome beaches and I love the SoCal atmosphere and attitude

I totally agree with what you guys are saying about the outdoors, its a dying passion (I personally love camping)

Exactly, I know where your coming from.... those NE Ohioans...

I try to be as active as possible, in reality and unfortunatly, I don't get as much sleep as I should and have little time to myself. I like to workout, run, go fishing on lake erie with my grandpa, camp, work on the car, hang out with friends, go to sporting events, browns games... etc.

I like it where I am in Colorado, about 50 miles north of Denver. Rocky Mountain National Park is only 25 miles away. There are always plenty of outdoor activities to do. Lots of skiing in the winter, hiking, biking and camping in the summer. It'* usually not too cold in the winter, snow doesn't last very long at the lower elevations. In the spring you can ski in the morning and play golf in the afternoon. I grew up in Wisconsin, north of Milwaukee. I always found outdoor activities to do up there too. I'll probably take a little trip up there this summer, I miss the lake and biking on the rail trails, but I don't miss the long winters.

Ahh, yes, Colorado....

After my tour in Germany in the Army I was transfered to Ft. Carson. I loved the mountains. I could see Pikes Peak from my barracks window. We used to go hiking at the garden of the gods park and shooting up at st. peter'* dome. We used to hang out and walk around in Manitou Springs. Also we used to show off and race our cars along the ave. That is Academy Boulevard in Colorado Springs.

I even went to the TNT Monster truck challenge in the Pueblo state fairgrounds. Funny thing was that it was sponsored by Freedom Ford, yet a Chevy took first(USA 1) and second (Master of Disaster).
