There are beaches on lakes in North Jersey, none for the ocean though.  None of the lake beaches are nude though.

I've had an odd idea on this subject: when a state is split between boards, how about we try to make an "official" boundary that follows DOT district boundaries? I should hope the reason is obvious here. So for Ohio, maybe we could have 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 12 in Midwest / Great Lakes, while 5, 8, 9, 10, 11 are in Ohio Valley, for example.  (Or maybe throw 5 and 11 on M/GL, or throw 6 and 7 in OV, but in any case pick a plan and try to make it official.)

…Do you think they're trying to decide which one to use?

Using vtk's suggestion, I would place Mississippi DOT's Districts 2 and 3 in the Mid-South, and the rest in the Southeast.



As for Tennessee, I would put Region 4 in the Mid-South, and the remainder in the Southeast.

If I were posting something about eastern West Virginia, it would go in Mid-Atlantic. Something about central WV would go in Ohio Valley. Something about western WV-I guess I'd just keep it to myself...

Since northern Mississippi has been moved to Mid-South, it would be nice to have a Mississippi Message Icon as an option for posts relating to northern Mississippi.

Official documents usually split the U.S. and A. into 9 regions:

If we have to redistrict the regional boards, that might be a good way to do it.

That name sounds like some kind of sit-com.

Looks like somebody hasn't seen Da Ali G Show or the Borat movie.
