Nothing wrong with all that.  Coincidentally, you're not our first forum member from Blacksburg...

Thanks! I also didn't expect people from my town to be on this forum (but then it is a decent size college town)

Welcome from a VT Alumni!!
Thanks! :)  Something I notice here is every few years I see a lot of plates from a particular state or two and this year it's PA and NY.
Also is the state flower of PA the "Road work ahead sign"?

I can see why you would ask the second question.

In regard to PA, apparently it is about the same to attend VT out-of-state as Penn State in-state (at least ten years ago).  That was my understanding of why many PA students went to VT.
