The only other comparable aviation exhibit in the United States is the multi-sited Air and Space Museum run by the Smithsonian. For me spending a day there and then driving down to Cincinnati to catch a Reds game in their new stadium that night will be as close to heaven as I am ever going to get
I have been to the USAF Museum a couple times, and I loved it. I am a BIG military aircraft nut.

Panama City is AWESOME. Much better on the gulf side of Fla. than the Atlantic. Plus they have Tyndall Air Force Base nearby. Lots of fighter jets going in and out doing live fire training.

Hi,
I kind of felt the need to clarify my vote, even though it's been a few days since anyone's written anything. That, and I'm not really doing anything else at the moment. I put yes, but the only trip I actually have planned is the 2500km trek from Chatham, Ontario, back home to Wolfville, Nova Scotia, at the end of the summer. Thankfully, she has enough cargo space to fit all my stuff with room to spare, even more than my 1990 Grand Prix did. By the way, 'she' refers to my 2003 ION3 sedan, Rogue.

Hey, believe it or not, the very northern part of SE Ohio has some very fun driving roads, with probably more further to the south, I haven't tried yet.

Thanx, Andrew. Route 7 down to the river, perhaps?
While Ohio may not be the greatest place to live, (and what place is) you seem to have a firm grip on reality.
Don't you just love it when people stereotype just about anything & think they are an expert in just about everything?

I'm far from an expert, but I've been to Ohio. The best part was the bridge back to Kentucky.

Stereotyping is fun as long as it is just for fun. Heck, I'm from South Jersey and if I had a dime for every moron who asked "What exit?", I'd be rich. Little to these geographically challenged individuals know, but you don't get on the NJ Turnpike to get to the woods where I'm from.

So then what exit on the Garden State? Sorry, I really couldn't resist! I have relatives in Vernona and Randolph, and to get to where they live, you don't just get off the Turnpike and turn left or right. That does sound aggrevating, Piney, especially because New Jersey is so much more than just the Turnpike. I've never been to Ohio, though, so I can't say anything about that. However, it really aggrevates me that because I live in New York, I am automatically assumed to be either a criminal or an "urban hipster." Believe me, I am not in any way, shape, or form either one of those, and neither is anybody I know.

Maybe I should take you to some of the roads around Carrollton, Lisbon, Steubenville, or E. Liverpool and see if you think its a boring place to drive! Or what about some bar-hopping in Cleveland, or a trip to Put-in-Bay or a day at Cedar Point? Ohio is not the world's most exciting place, thats for sure. But there's plenty of fun if you know where to look for it.

Apparently you didn't stop long enough to meet any of the people. While the geography & climate may not be to your liking, try looking at the big picture. Many of your fellow members of this forum are from Ohio. (OhioVueBoy, Mydnight Myst, Rossao, SW2 Muck, Bennett9000, csdiabiase, zboregerd, fly on by, to name a few). People are a state or regionís most important asset. Like Andrew said, Ohio may not be the most exciting place, (we donít have Epcot Center, Disneyworld, Daytona Beach, etc.), but Ohio is made up of itís PEOPLE. To make statements like you have, you are basically insulting your fellow members. I have been to Florida (not Jersey, yet) & I have found many things to my liking, & disliking. Fortunately, those distasteful things about Florida Iíll keep to myself.
EVERYPLACE has its good & bad points. Stereotyping people for fun? Some of us didn't take it that way. If you donít have something nice to say about someplace or somebody, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF! I'll get off my soapbox, now. Nuff said.

Perhaps you are still reeling from the thrashing the Buckeyes gave the HurricanesÖ

Actually I have a few friends in the same field of work who work for the great state of Ohio, Columbus, Hamilton County and so on - they are great guys, if a bit hooked on cornbread. I just like to poke fun, sort of playing with the stereotypes and stuff.

Sarcasm is one of my stronger personality traits, again I'm playing with y'all.

There are two Floridas, one is largely a redneck pit full of trailers and auto repair facilities and the other is a tourist trap mecca. I don't really care for either but I want my pension. They pay me pretty decent and my house went up 13% last year, so I'll stay till I can get the heck out of here and retire to Kentucky. (Where I love to poke fun at the inbreeding that is so common there...)

Can't we just have a little fun poking fun? All work and no play makes for a good Lutheran but not for one that is fun to be around. I'd never intentionally insult someone - it is just playing around. Perhaps decaf would help a bit?

Outside of the Superbowl, I've spent a total of about 8 hours in the past 5 years watching sports - that said, if you grew up eating corn and working on a farm all day, you'd be good at football too

Piney, I have to tell you, I was watching "Food 911" on the Food Network last night, and the cook guy on the show, Tyler Florence, was going some place in New Jersey. The opening of the show started in Manhattan, and the guy got into a cab and said "Going to Jersey, Boss." Then the cabbie said, "oh, OK, what exit?" *Just for the heck of it, he said "ha, ha, funny. Forty Five.* Score a dime for Piney!!
