Are you from UA? I’m class of ’97
I was born/raised here, in upper Arlington, bleh. I graduated highschool feeling kinda jaded (is that the right word?) I was thoroughly fed up with close-mindedness, Midwestern-ness, and I just wanted to see if there was more out there. So as soon as I graduated I hopped on a greyhound and headed for the left coast, traveling from southern Washington down the 101 highway through Oregon and California. It was all I hoped it would be and more. I found what I was looking for and more. Open-minded liberal-types everywhere, making new friends everyday, a plethora of greenery of all varieties (lol), breathtaking scenery, crazy outdoor festivals/shows, farmers markets, perfect weather….and on and on….
I came back in the fall, but returned to CA the following 2 summers…
I always wanted to be a permanent transplant out there, but I couldn’t stay out of trouble when I came back here, so for legal reasons I was stuck here, then I met more Trouble and we have 2 boys together :-P…my SO is from Albuquerque, NM and he constantly pines to be back out west. For a while, I let his severe disdain for all things Midwest & Ohio affect me, I thought I hated it too.. I was the person who, if you told me you were from somewhere east/west coast, I’d say “why would you come here?!?! Blehhhh” lol
Then I realized that I was hating it for the wrong reasons. For no reason. Other than I HATE HATE HATE winter!!!!
So me and Ohio made nice. I don’t mind Columbus, I probably won’t leave for a long time since I have kids now and the fam is here. I really really like my boss, my job, my house, my little life here….
I grew up sledding at the spot on the Scioto river @ fishinger/riverside dr in Arlington
They put bails of hay up so you don’t Sunny Bono on a tree or sled into the river lol
Kids build snow ramps too, nothing like catching air on a plastic saucer :-D

I tried Oyo at work and I have to say, as a non-liquor drinker who can’t sip w/o a chaser (ever), I was extremely surprised by it’s smoothness. I sipped with no chaser, it was awesome. :thumbup:
