    Hood did command a Division of Texans under Robert E. Lee. However, Texas has both mountains and prairie. Such a delimma![/QUOTE]

    Why don't we set up a boundary. South of the Mason/Dixon and east of the "Big Muddy".

    And Hugh excuse me for saying so but; Hood, although one of the bravest, was one of the south's worst generals - he almost lost his entire army somewhere up in Tennesse/Kentucky.

    I'll bet he would have rode a Gold Wing too. It would have had to be a trike though because they widdled him down to one arm and one leg. Sort of like that Monty Python movie.

    And that is how we will keep it for now, OK?

    By the way, I think the Texas boys need a Lonestar flag smiley.

    TexSux doesn't fit either the southeast or the southwest...it's just one big-ass prairie separating the two, and neither region claims it. Kinda like Virginia; northerners think it's southern and southerners think it's northern.

    And just because a southeasterner wouldn't BBQ a cow doesn't mean that it's not tasty. There are few things as tasty as a very slowly-smoked and OH-so-tender brisket, kissed by just enough sauce to notice (or less, if your personal taste says so).

    AR and KY are not the south either. They are more midwest type of states with a few southern characteristics.
    Arkansas definitely ain't the midwest. It's not flat enough.

    Oh, we'll eat the hell out of a cow in the south, but we call it grilling steaks. If we want BBQ, we kill a hog, build a fire under the wash pot, and start digging a great big pit.

    The GS was invented as a possible way to drag dead hogs out of woods and swamps. Note that the BMW training center is located in SC. Sadly, the optional rifle mount was discontinued early on.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see a "The South" group. Thanks for the efforts to make the listings correct.

    But, y'all can not add us to the south. We are the south!

    Thanks again!
