It's Official, I Grew Up in Redneckistan, IA

It's Official, I Grew Up in Redneckistan, IA
Dayum.....

While I moved around a LOT as a kid, I manged to spend 7th grade through my senior year in one place (with summers visiting another). That place was Davis County, Iowa. There are like 8 or 9 tiny communities in the county and I lived in the 2nd largest of 200-300 people. High School and pretty much everything "civilized" worth a damn in the county was located in the county seat of Bloomfield.

Bloomfield had maybe 6K residents and the county as a while 9K, so you can see how rural the place was. What I found surprising was that Bloomfield was ranked #4 in the 10 most redneck cities in Iowa.

Wow.....

...glad I got out I guess. I do still miss parts of the county though...
