It is. I grew up in Arizona my whole life and had never been to Kansas, but McPherson College offered a B.S. in the restoration of classic cars that nobody else did, so I moved there sight unseen to become a student and get that degree. I dreaded the move because everybody in Arizona told me that Kansas is a miserable place. I HATED the weather and scenery there my first two years, but I fell in love with it my last two years. Kansas is a beautidul state filled with beautiful land, beautiful little towns, and kind folks who help and look out for each other. Hardworking people who take pride in what they do even though they know they will never be rich. Life there has not changed much in 50 years. There is a lot to admire.
Then I graduated and like a fool I moved back west and it's been all downhill from there. I've wanted to go back since the day I graduated. That was over a year ago.
I'm working on moving back. Just saving my money and biding my time for a job opening there or to have enough saved up for a down payment on my own restoration shop.
The Midwest is something you either understand and like, or something you don't understand and hate. Not much in between.
