This has been done in the past, but I thought it'd be interesting to do after having recently roadtripped through the state. Let's see where our message board's fan base is scattered. Feel free to elaborate in your post!!

EDIT: Can't edit the poll, but I didn't mean to put "IL:" in front of Chicago, LOL.

Quite often it feels like Massachusetts is outside the United States, but I went ahead and clicked somewhere else in the US.

We lived there for a while when I was a kid. My dad always jokingly called it Taxachusetts. Of course my dad was a notorious cheapskate too.

Used to live in the northwest suburbs of the state, then I spent some time in Columbia, Mizzery :hurl:. Now I live in Houston, Texas.

Southern Illinois
8 months out of the year I'm in Chandler, AZ. About 3 months is in SoIL. The missing month generally includes Texas, Cali, Nevada, Florida, Mexico, or possibly some other part of the world.;) I'm hoping Jordan makes it onto my itinerary this year. I've already got a week in Vegas and a week in Hawaii scheduled this month and next. I'd really like to win the lottery so that I can have some 5 star resorts as part of my travels rather then friends/families sofas, air mattresses, tent, etc.... :D

I am from Hong Kong, usually watching the Illini games on the internet in the wee hours now. Watched EJ's shot in the Hall in 79.

This poll is very obviously going to end up with a dominant chunk of "Somewhere else in the US". Next time it would probably be better to at least break up the "rest of the US" category into a few categories like "California", Southwest, Southeast, Pacific Northwest, etc. It would be a more interesting result, IMO.

Tucson, AZ, here.

Grew up in Moline, Quad Cities, Illinois side, in case anyone isn't familiar. I've been living in Maryland for about 25 years now, but when we are away from home, whenever anyone asks me where I'm from, I still say I'm from Illinois.

no longer in OK! Centralia, IL
I'm from the Danville area, went to school at EIU, worked out in Oklahoma for 3 years (which is when I signed up here, obviously) and now living in Centralia, IL

Grew up in Coal City. Went to Illinois 73-Dec 79. Watched EJ's shot in a bar in Ft Madison as I didn't have anything set up in my apartment yet. Bounced around with work all over the place and now retired in Minnesota. B1G country at least!
