Default How About "Midwest USA" for a Riding Region

Any chance we can get a dedicated region for the Midwest riders. I'm assuming that would include Michigan, part of Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota at least ...

Thanks for the consideration.

Steve

Wouldn't that be "Central"?

Sorry - haven't had time to look at the existing forums to see how it should be sliced and diced. Busy with my "real job".

If you can take a look and tell me how the other u.s. region forums should be changed to accommodate this new one and exactly how the new one should be titled and a description - then I will make the change.

Thanks,
jeff

Default How about this layout?

I had a look at the map and tried to figure out the logical grouping of states for the Midwest region. I think you could say the Midwest is bounded by the Canadian border up top, the Mississippi on the west, the Ohio on the south and the Allegheny on the east, so ...

The states would include Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.

The other regions could remain essentially the same. I think the Nor'Easterners will recognize this as a logical break.

Thanks for having a look at this.

Steve

Default The Great Midwest

If you're from the Midwest you know it, and unfortunately we don't really fit in any of the other regions (beyond the obvious geographic boundaries spelled out).

So how about it?

Gee, you guy's made me learn something today.
Geographically, WV is in the south.
There are four main regions in the United States. West, Mid-West, North East and South. Then you have the sub-regions, Too many to list and I think they have a few new ones since I was in school, so for what it's worth look here: http://rs6.loc.gov/ammem/gmdhtml/rrhtml/regdef.html
There were quite a few web sites on this subject and they all differ a little bit as I think there were over twenty sub-regions all together. I guess you can cut it up anyway you like.

Me, I'm from the Mid-West living right in the center of the US so I don't care

that's the problem with wv, geographically, parts are in the east (eastern panhandle is kinda near dc..) the south (all of southern wv), the north (i'm 1 hour south of pittsburgh and actually north of dc and baltimore. - and part of the state -the northernmost tip - is actually north of pittsburgh))

KY is the same way. A lot of folks lump us with midwest, but down where I live in SE KY we feel much more like southern boys and girls than midwest. I guess the fact that both Lincoln and Jefferson Davis were both born here doesn't help.
