Hello from Northern Illinois!
« on: June 22, 2020, 11:43:20 PM »

I have always been a roadgeek as long as I can remember. This website seems like the logical choice for a roadgeek.

Welcome from the southern Missouri Ozarks!  :wave:

Yes, this is THE SITE for roadgeeking, as far as I'm aware. I can only think of one other somewhat active roadgeek site off the top of my head.

Hello from southern Wisconsin! All of you Chicagolanders are somewhat responsible for all the new road projects in WI recently.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

He said northern Illinois, and if you're from northern Illinois, there's a 95% chance you're a Chicagolander.

But, having lived in Chicagoland, I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone living there refer to the area as "northern Illinois".  They tend to say "Chicago", "Chicagoland", "the Chicago area", or even which end of the suburbs such as "north suburbs of Chicago".

Hearing the phrase "northern Illinois" without further context, I'm more likely to assume somewhere like Rockford, Sterling, Peru, or even Kankakee.

I mean I consider that to be Chicagoland, but I guess most people on this forum don't. Anyways, welcome.

Welcome from the state of Georgia!  :wave:

This site is certainly a logical choice, with plenty of roadgeekery to get involved in.

And with that said, Iím looking forward to seeing you around!  :nod:
