I am trying hard not to feel slighted by not being the official New York representative.  ;-)
Well, I'm going to be applying for a job in Lebanon, NH, so I might not be representing NY much longer.
Rome to Lebanon.  You seem to typically reside in towns that are named after foreign cities or countries.  Is/Was that intentional?   :)

If you didn't mention the states after those towns; some would think you're a world traveler.  :)

In the United States, Liverpool NY, Rome NY, and Lebanon NH are on the same line.

In the Eastern Hemisphere, Liverpool, Rome, and Lebanon are almost on the same line, but not quite.

You can add me for Wyoming, my birth state.

if so, I can represent Hungary. 

I think kphoger and I can unofficially represent Mexico since it seems we are the two who go there the most regularly.

unless someone else has been, I will take it upon myself to represent Patagonia.

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 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!

Oh, if I come off as grumpy, the 2014 fireworks haven't stopped yet and its been January 1 for over 45 minutes.  :angry:

You can take Baja and Kphoger (whom I have not seen online in a while) can take Coahuila--I'm calling dibs on Chihuahua.

I guess I'm possibly the only representative of Australia in this forum - haven't heard of any other Australian roadgeeks who are members of this forum.

Hoger seems to be in a habit of logging in once a month and making 30-40 posts in that occasional day, so I'd say he still counts as active, just not reliably so.

There's Brad, but I'm not sure if he's a member or not.

The timing of his inactivity indicates we scared him away at the Wichita meet, though he seemed to have a good time

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.

I chat with him on occasion.  mainly on the topic of Mexican license plate spottings.

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.

Inspired by this thread I considered making a new topic asking this question, but then realized we already have this one. So do we officially have an active member from every state? Has the list changed much?

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.

I’m 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.
