Since there was a topic for Texas, I was curious how many people are from PA, and from what part?

I am originally from Bear Creek (outside of Wilkes-Barre). Where my parent's property line ended, it was all game land going on and on and on...

Now I'm in the western suburbs of Philly. Trust me, I miss the woods and try to get out camping / hiking whenever possible...

I have family ( a couple I'll even admit to, and a bunch I won't) in PA and my paternal grandparents were from Wellsboro.

My wife and I lived next to the Chaddsford Winery for ten years, about two miles east of Longwood Gardens. The Brandywine Valley is a beautiful area to live in, and we still have some very close friends living there.

I moved to the Dallas, Pennsylvania (outside Scranton/Wilkes-Barre) area almost a year ago (eek Time flies!). Big change from the Riverside/Moreno Valley, Southern California environment… lot more trees, lot less people.

I live in a small town south of Erie, Pennsylvania, its one of those blink and your through it, only one light and everything shuts down after 12. It used to be ok but some of the neighbors are getting a little to weird for my liking. I'm thinking it might be time to look for a cabin in the woods and scale back operations. We have a lot of wineries located around here, North East is the most famous as well as Conneaut Lake and Willhelm.

Of course I started that thread because we seemed to have many members from Texas and, more specifically, the Metroplex. I wanted to confirm that.
