      Surprised it didn't last with the number of NY snowbirds in Florida.

      On a related note, the guy who runs Mother Marian's Hostel in Wolf Laurel near Sams Gap NC refers to many of his neighbors as halfbacks. They retired from New York to Florida then moved halfway back to get out of the summer heat.

      Nary a Reuben to be found in Sams Gap.
      Trudgin' along the AT since 2003. Completed Sections: Springer Mountain to Winding Stair Gap NC, Max Patch to Franconia Notch NH and the Gale River Trail to Crawford Notch NH.

      In Franklin, NC a good portion of the summer crowd and even permanent residents are from FL. They call them Floridiots.
      The road to glory cannot be followed with much baggage.

      And when folk from California go up to Oregon, I hear they call it Californication.
      Nothing but Baltimorons up here in southcentral PA. If there's a car doing the speed limit in the left lane with 10 cars backed up behind it, you can bet that it has a Maryland tag.

      Maybe it's time to re-define the 12 Tribes:

      Floridiots
      Halfbacks
      Massholes
      EZPAssholes (crawl through the automated toll lanes at 5 mph)
      Baltimorons
      Califoricators
      ...

      now hold on, the term Baltimorons runs much deeper than just traffic idiocy. I lived in Baltimore for 4 years, their dumbassary knows no bounds.

      All the cars with Maryland plates that I see on I95 here in VA are driving like they just robbed a bank and have the cops on their tail, 15 to 20 mph over the speed limit.
      I learned to drive in MD, but it was the DC area, not "Balmer". For fun we would play "Beltway Bumpercars"
      Reminds me of driving in Brazil. Was like go cart racing. Get in, push the pedal to the floor, and try to avoid hitting anyone (or being hit). :)
