I drove by there earlier this week while traveling to a location for work. Here are the things I hate about OH:

1) Everyone is content with the speed limit. In VA we like to go 10-15mph over.
2) Because of #1 people hold up the passing lane and you get stuck going ******* 45mph.
3) Omish people should have to get all the way over for cars to pass on back roads. Technology built my car and the ******* roads they are driving their ******* buggies on. Either they should make their own ******* roads with their hands, or let me use my ******* lane.
4) There is too much farmland and no interstate that goes diagonally through the state. This means that it takes forever to get anywhere when coupled with #1, #2, and #3.

The things I liked about OH:
1) The hotels are all really cheap even for the nice ones.
2) Gas was like $3.50 for regular.

1. I speed regularly so do most people in urban areas.
2. true, so true
3. "Amish", the largest concentration in the country is in Kidron OH, nothing like washing horse **** off your car. Amish kids party hard though.
4. we do have 1 interstate that does go diagonally across the state, 71.

Hoping to be somewhere warmer (Austin or Phoenix?) in a year or two.

I can't stand the city, Dayton and Columbus both would make me cringe. I saw people in D.C. work on their cars on the road which was quite funny.
