    Maybe only transplants like me (moved here around 12 years old; although I still have family in TX and CA) will get some of this thread but you people in the PNW have some strange (to a southerner) ways.

    This is meant to be a lighthearted thread mostly, so try not to get to nasty - after all, it's not their fault they were raised here;):D:p!

    So in the "You may be a Redneck" format I give to you for everyone's enjoyment "You just may be from OR & WA if you:"


    You just may be from OR & WA if you:
    Take a "beep" from my horn as a "HONK!!!!"

    You just may be from OR & WA if you:
    Can not make it to freeway speeds on some of the longest on ramps in the country in a modern automobile.

    You just may be from OR & WA if you:
    Hog the fast lane and pace the middle lane.

    You just may be from OR & WA if you:
    Tailgate me, so I move over to let you pass and move in behind you; then you drive 5 miles an hour slower then I had been driving.

    I have a slew more but thought I'd give some others a chance to chime in first...:rolleyes:

    ****Also, let me know if you think this is a PNW thing or just a Portland and Seattle type city issue in the PNW****

    You may be from OR/WA if when you meet someone with a tan, you're first reaction is to ask them if they speak English, or what country they're from....
    ....in July!

    You must be from Oregon or Washington if we complain about the abundance of rain, only to later complain that its "too" hot when we only hit 90° in the summer.

    You must be from Oregon or Washington if you bubblegum about EVERY weather pattern we get.

    You must be from Oregon or Washington if you slow down in a heavy rain as if it was a blizzard though visibility and drivability conditions are still superb.

    You must be from Portland or Seattle if you say you love hiking and homesteading yet live within the city, cant lift 50lbs, have baby soft hands, don't own a vehicle, and wear skinny jeans year round.. But you've been in the forest once.

    You know that the summer really begins after the 4th of July.

    You wonder who’s Idea it was to put the Rose Festival in early June.

    Wonder why people in Portland worry about conserving water.:cool:

    You laugh to yourself every time someone mentions “exploding whale”:p

    You know that neither the moss nor the tree care which direction is north.

    Laugh when on the hunting shows some guy talks about how hard it is to kill a white tail because you hunted all season and never even saw a black tail.o_O

    You know there’s more than one kind of Salmon.

    You may never remember your state having a republican governor.

    Bi-Mart (nuff said):D

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Sorry, to any ladies here but coming from TX where makeup is required to go to leave your bedroom and CA where a tan and a nice body is the norm not the exception - it's a bit different.

    I was born at Wilamette Falls hospital in Oregon City, so.... you may be NATIVE Oregonian if you want to break your foot off in an "out of stater" transplant's arse, just because.

    Try this again.

    I don't know about the younger folks, I'm 68, but I was taught to be up to speed before I merged.
