State stereotypes - love this conversation! My sister lives in Georgia & we live in Oregon, so it comes up a lot :)

My favorite thing about Oregon - all the trees, mountains, lakes, farmland, ocean, rivers, waterfalls and high desert. I think it's the absolute most gorgeous place ever. If you like doing anything outdoors, Oregon is paradise!

As far as stereotypes - When I went to work in Albany, NY for a summer, whenever anyone heard I was from Oregon, they always brought up one of two things - Oh, you're a hippy/pothead or Oh, you're a farmer. No, I'm not, but actually, yes, there are a lot of hippies/pot smokers and a lot of farmers here. In fact, most of the my closest friends and family fall into one of those categories, so it's definitely a stereotype for a reason.

This is a lovely tribute to New Jersey. I have never been there and actually know nothing about the state, except for the most important thing ever - BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN!!!!!!!!!!! How could you not include that? I'm going to go listen to Thunder Road and give you time to update your post...


Although I make my home in Pennsylvania now, I am originally from Westfield, NJ. I love Princeton and Spring Lake. The only thing I don't like about NJ is the property taxes!!

LOL, Janna, I thought of Bruce, but to tell you the truth, my hubby is the Springsteen fan in this house! I'm more of an alternative music girl. Very funny about Portland stereotypes--I didn't know about the hippies/pot smokers, but I do know it is absolutely gorgeous (even though I've never been there). If you don't already know about it, there is a lovely Portland blog called Posie Gets Cozy (not just about Portland, but she often features outdoor photos of Portland and vicinity). It's one of my faves!

I'm with you, Kate. They are STEEP!


I love the south Jersey shore towns;however,the drivers are much more anxious to mow down pedestrians there than anywhere else I've been, with the exception of Boston.

They must be the people driving down from New York, right, Donna? ;)
