Are we in the South?

I haven’t been posting, because there really isn’t anything to post about. Our stay at the Sundance RV Village was certainly not planned. The good news is, this is our last RV park for the next 6 weeks.

There are a couple confederate flags in this RV park.

I googled “is Texas considered the south or the midwest?” and it seems like many of the people identify with the south though wikipedia calls it south central. What do you think?

    I am not claiming anything with a Confederate flag as Midwestern. Texas is an amalgamation of many cultures from Mexican, western ranching and southern. I would venture to say Texas is neither Southern or Midwestern.

      Good point. For some reason I just thought since it was in the middle…I thought wrong!

    Having lived there for three years, I can say in no uncertain terms that Texas is an entity unto itself.

    Austin, San Antonio and parts of the Dallas area are nice…does that count?

    Not one to overly-generalize however I think the flags should give a clue…

    East Texas is part of the South; the panhandle is more Great Plains, and most of Texas is part of the West. “The Nine Nations of North America” is an old work, but still accurate as far as Texas goes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Nine_Nations_of_North_America

    The best part of Texas is that you by-pass it.

    Is Texas part of anything at all?

  • Reply Jackie March 8, 2016 at 4:59 pm

    It depends on which side of I35 you’re on. East Texas certainly identifies with the south while West Texas identifies more with the west. If you look at a map, I35 pretty much divides the country in half anyway. Of course, Texas was part of the Confederacy during the unCivil War so there’s that.

    When I visited Austin for the first time 40 years ago, there was a monument on the State House grounds commemorating Texans who fought for the confederacy. Don’t remember the exact words, but I came away with the feeling they were mad the Confederacy lost. That’s when I figured out Texas considers themselves Southern.
