Count me in on two states.  NJ from 1965 to 1990, and FL from 1990 to present.

There are many from FL on this forum and a couple I know from post observations that are from New Jersey.

I'm originally from Arkansas and lived there most of my life, so you could also put me in the Arkansas list if you so desire.  I currently live about 85 miles from the Arkansas line and I'm one of the "go to" guys when it comes to Arkansas roads, along with US 71.

Almost all of the states have at least one active member; many of the missing ones have several. My biggest question here is to what state do we assign corco.

I feel like saying Idaho. :P

Also, we're looking at from which state (i.e. home state), not in which state, so Kurumi counts for CT, and roadman65 for FL probably.

Connecticut native here, representing Hard Hittin' New Britain, the home of The Stanley Works (a.k.a. the tool people) and the New Britain Rock Cats baseball club (AA-level Minnesota Twins). I've lived in southern Maine twice, but will always consider the Constitution State home, like it or not. :(

I do live in Montana, but I'm an Idahoan through and through, so whatever. If you're counting Kurumi for Connecticut, corco is probably Idaho. Though, oddly I've driven every mile of state highway in Washington, Wyoming, and Arizona but not Idaho, so whatever that means.

Bitmapped (Brian Powell) represents West Virginia.
Codyg(numbers I can't recall offhand) is Cody Goodman from Alabama.
Several from Michigan (AJ, Sam, Brian, and others).
Several also from North Carolina.
Billy Riddle is in South Carolina now, and Jason Ilyes in Tennessee.
Froggie might as well count as Vermont, although I think we have others.

I can think of at least 3 for Louisiana: Sanctimoniously, bassoon1986, and cjk374. There was also mcdonaat but he hasn't been active in months.

There are a couple for Iowa and Indiana but I can't remember their names.

Roadfro for Nevada and SD Mapman for South Dakota.

That's funny, because mine is yours but reversed: 1994-2002 Florida, then 2002-present in New Jersey.  :)  For New Jersey, I know that Steve is a definite for that, and jeffandnicole is a maybe.

For Indiana, I would suspect Indyroads as being from there.

I know I'm not the only one in Delaware.
I'm not currently living in Delaware but have a great deal of interest in all things Delaware especially Kent county. I lived in Kent county 1959-1965 & 1970-1980 and have alot of history there. I still consider Kent county home even after living in Florida 33 yrs. I read the Delaware State News online daily and I expect to move home once my family issue is resolved. I'm more of a lurker than an active poster tho I do visit this forum daily

Doesn't matter. We're just looking for one from each state. Not "representing", but "from." Oscar or I could represent Hawaii, but neither of us are from there.

I dabble in Missouri, mostly in the KC-Springfield-Branson region.

Rich Piehl is a good St Louis source.  GR Van and Power of 7 would be good for Missouri if we could recruit them.

Anyone want to go on a recruitment drive?

While I'm a frequent visitor to Hawaii, and Alaska too (six visits to Hawaii beginning in 1999, five to Alaska beginning in 1994), that's not the same as being there more or less full-time.

I think Sonic99 is from Arizona. I've driven the entire state highway system and lived there for two years, but I'm probably not "from" there.  Same applies with Wyoming, which we're also missing.

If we're not so stringent on our definition of active, you could switch Billy F 1988 to Wyoming, me to Montana, and SpudMuffin to Idaho. I think there's one other Boise area infrequent poster- not sure who though.

Michigan's been well-represented since the forum was founded. Even if there isn't anyone here who lives in a specific region, the knowledge base is certainly high enough that we have them all covered.

Rome to Lebanon.  You seem to typically reside in towns that are named after foreign cities or countries.  Is/Was that intentional?   :)

Apparently, despite never having lived there, I apparently represent the Eastern Hemisphere thanks to the absurd assumption that the divide is somewhere just off Newfoundland, rather than just east of Central London.  :no:
In the Eastern Hemisphere, Liverpool, Rome, and Lebanon are almost on the same line, but not quite.
I hardly think this is "almost" - Lebanon is about 1000 miles south http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?P=ROM-SYD (Liverpool in the eastern hemisphere is a suburb of Sydney. There might be others, though this is the best for that line) - the line barely clips the northern tip of Iraq.

Or was this (http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?P=BEY-ROM-LPL-BEY) the kind of thing you were thinking of. Note that this Liverpool is about 3 degrees into the Western Hemisphere and it is still not right!

I don't think we scared him off.  I suspect something may have surfaced in real life that has diverted his attention elsewhere.  His account profile shows a last logged-in date in early November, while his last post was on September 6, and was part of a five-day, 45-post burst (September 2-6).  Before that (no posts at all in August), there were a solid 22 posts made in the four days following the Wichita meet (July 20).  I have received text messages from him intermittently over the past few months, all on road-related topics, the last being on December 23, so he is still in the hobby.

In two years in Tucson I saw more Sinaloas and Jaliscos than I can count (in addition to the border states), but I don't recall ever seeing a Nayarit- and believe me, I was on the lookout for them. I figured if I was seeing a Jalisco plate at least once every day, I'd be bound to eventually see a Nayarit plate. No luck.

In a similar vein, I'm going to create a list of which states the top 100 posters are from. This may help us fill in some of the blanks and get a better idea of which states are over/under represented. I'll post it when it's complete.

Iím from California but I think that I was in Florida for a brief bit when I signed up for the forum?  I use a movie reference for my location rather than where I live.

I think we can tell that from what people write about each state.

Yeah, but you know how much I love statistics. Or, at least you should know, anyways  :-D

But thatís the implied point I was making about my location signature, your statistics wonít be correct.  A lot of users donít list where they live and others do weird references.  So basically itís a frivolous effort to spend time making a chart on.  Besides you can get a gist of where people are by how popular certain states are in conversation.

Regarding the still empty spots on the collective list:

Regarding Delaware, I believe that is where Alex (our very own Webmaster here at AARoads) is from, if I recall correctly. Also, there is Alex4897, who is in Delaware.

Regarding Mississippi, there's golden eagle (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1150).

I think ColossalBlocks (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=13686) has some kind of association with Missouri, whether it be the place he is from, currently resides, or something else.

This thread (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=21681.0) in the Welcome board is actually specifically about forum users in or from Ohio, so in that thread you can see a few different people on here who are from that state.

I think wriddle082 (https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1143) has some kind of association with South Carolina.





While it would probably be incredibly hard to create, as has been noted, it would indeed be extremely cool to have a forum member general map, if it ever was feasible.

That must be where he resides now, but I want to think that he was born and/or raised in Delaware. I feel like I read that somewhere in the "About" section of the AARoads site, where it talked about people like Alex and Andy (among the founders of AARoads).

Roadfan had a roadgeek locator back in the day. It would be completely useless now but it was the bee's tits in 2000.

I don't think there's any bias... it could have even been alphabetical by username. For the purposes of the thread, as long as we have at least one, that's all that matters. Now, I could make a more detailed list that gives priority to your status, when you joined, etc.  :pan:

I too kind of do that but I would not post promotion in a typical post. Instead, I do an update on my fictional plans page on heavy posts (500, 1000, 1500, 3000)

I would suggest that with the volume of information currently on the Web, physical location is less important than it was in the late nineties/early noughties.  I am based in Kansas but since my chief road-related interest is signing plans, my "beat" is anywhere these plans are available electronically, including about 40 US states and 12 foreign countries.

Both have been active on this site within the last week.
So that would narrow it down to HI, AK, and ND.
