If you have ever run into someone out of Idaho you have probably heard some really terrible things said about Idaho. I don't want to live anywhere else. Idaho is the home I didn't know I needed. But when I travel and say I am from Idaho, some people have some terrible things to say.
It is fun to play around with stereotypes and I think we should be able to laugh at ourselves. I have been almost every single one of these "types" of Idahoan before and I think it is fun to admit that. Which one do you fall under the most?
I would like to consider myself an Idahoan but I know many people would still consider me an outsider. I came here from Nevada but Idaho is my home and in my heart. However, I won't say that when I moved here there wasn't some serious culture shock. Not bad things just different, things to get used to.
Ok maybe not a Californian, but here are some ways to determine whether or not someone is a tourist, just moved here or is not native to Idaho. I am guilty of a lot of these ones. I am not from California, but I do qualify as an :out of stater" who moved here because I love it.
Idahoans are some of the nicest people on the planet, but they are also some of the most stubborn or set in their ways. If they believe it is the right thing they are going to do it no matter what. Here are a few examples of things Idahoans will always do when given the chance.
People in Idaho are very proud of their state and where they are from. Even though I am not a native, I feel like I should have grown up here. If you recently moved here or are visiting, there are things no one should say to an Idahoan.
