      No, no, no. As someone who originally came from Baton Rouge, who bleeds purple and gold, longs for a crawfish boil, Miller Lite, and scantitily clad female neighbors, I declare YOU start sending pretty white girls this way.


      I would ask for some of their brew too.

      Okay, that's it. Load up a bus full of the LSU Golden Girls, some Abita Turbo Dog / Dixie Blackened Voodoo, 100lbs of Crawfish (Hell and send Emeril while we're at it to cook for me), some beignets, Peirre and Boudreux for some redneck laughs and that should suffice

      In exchange, I'll send down some Pyramid/Widmer/Deschutes/Rogue Beer, some smelly, self-hating trustafarians from the Evergreen State College, "I Don't Shop at Walmart" bumper stickers for the handful of Subarus in Louisiana, some curbside all-in-one recycling bins, free range chicken and some ash from Mt. St. Helens.

      Ah my hometown Portland. Where it doesn't rain nearly as much as Seattle and, yes, people definitely drive slow. Whats the rush? Enjoy all the green scenery. Also home to the best fresh food in the country. When you first buy a car it is required to be a Subaru or VW, Once you make enough money you are required to buy an Audi from one of one dealer in the greater Portland area. I always wanted to make some money and open a Subie/Audi dealership and give Sunset Audi a little competition. BTW if the rain gets you down just skip over to Central Oregon for a few days. Best kept secret in Oregon.

      I can be downtown, and onto any of three ski areas within 30 minutes. I can be at the best mountain on earth in just over another hour.

      And our beaches aren't chump change either. And we have a gazillion lakes.

      You have the year round weather, I'll give you that. And believe it or not LA real estate is cheaper than Van, which is mental.

      Each picture here, the red circle is approximately where the other picture was taken from. I love this place.

      Try being a Toyota owner. Do you know how many times I find myself constantly being surrounded by other toyotas whenever I'm on the road?

      Excuse me while I walk down the street to the farmer's market in 70 degree sunny weather. I do have to take the compost out while I'm at it. There is a smug advisory out though. At least I sold the Prius.

      Ha! PO ME is just a bunch of hipster transplants from Baahsthan. No VW's there except beat to **** mK3's.


      Further north (Lewiston) there is a pretty large VW scene.
      The whole rest of the state is dented up pickups, and Subarus.
      Stretched, poke, rubbed......sounds like a porn stars butt hole.
