Huh, I never would have thought there were so many steampunx right in my backyard.  I'm in Pensacola, FL just a stones throw from a lot of ya'll.

I spend half the year in San Francisco, but I'm from Knoxville, TN.
Any other Tennessians here?

I also love in GA. I live in Atlanta.

I barely dress up here anymore because of people bothering me. It seems like most people in GA are extremely against different styles of dress and manner.  Undecided

La Bricoleuse: I myself am in the N.C. Foothills. Who knew fellow Steampunks resided so near?

I'm an Englisman in Eastern North Carolina, here.  Coincidentally, my good wife and I were planning to spend a few days in Asheville in September.
Asheville, NC here.
  My man lives near Asheville! I wonder if ever your paths crossed, though both quite unawares?

On another note: I've been to almost all the states aforementioned in the thread, as I am also a Civil War reenactor Grin.

Dothan, Alabama here. I will be a Dragon*Con this year, albeit more than likely in t-shirts and jeans.

Hello, Somewhat Savvy, I'm the wife of the good Fortescue and we're on the coast of NC. We'll be visiting Asheville with mum (Karl's mum) in a few weeks' time. I'm looking forward to seeing Malaprops again--it's one of my favourite bookshops.

Speaking of the coast, we were just there actually! In Sea Level!  Grin I loved every minute of it.

My residence constantly flip flops between eastern NC and VA. But I always live somewhere near the ocean. Needless to say, I do more sailing in a sea ship then an air ship. Grin

I wish I lived near the water. I used to spend summers up in New York and Maine and I really miss just staring out at the waves.

I never got a chance to explor Knoxville much! I drove through there on a big college football day, and of course thought all the humans on the street were insane. *grins* Otherwise, I've met a few nice people from Knoxville's Goth scene, who frequent the Ashville club. Cheesy

And I know what you mean Insanity. There is something so cool and lovely about the New England Coast. I loved Portsmouth when I lived there.

Tampa, Florida here.  Apparently there are a scant few of us in the Sunshine State.

Though last year there was a man who used to walk around the USF campus in Victorian dress carrying a glass ball.. I wonder if he's around these digital parts?  I never got the chance to talk to him in person.

'Nother Tampa man here.  I went antique hunting this weekend only to find that nearly all of the establishments listed in the local directory were out of business and replaced with houses of ill repute.

Very disappointing to say thing least as I was interested in finding myself a pocket watch.

In college at UTK, lo these many [NOYB] years ago, i had the extreme misfortune of getting caught driving up the strip in an old orange-and-white VW van just as a (winning) game ended and the hordes of screaming face-painted orange-overalls-sporting Vol fans came streaming up the middle of the pike.

I seriously thought they were going to flip my vehicle.

This is not to say that anyone is more sensible about football here where i currently reside, in Tarheel country, but at least people painting themselves blue and going crazy somehow makes a bit more sense, in an odd way.

Well, let me edit that... I've SEEN some of those people... Miss Spite (takes the third person) As some on the Forums will now now, is not always the most outgoing or sosial of people... She often will not be the one to start conversations... But I have seen them, and have been frequently to the A-ville club. Cheesy

Hello local buddy!

I like this directory, I've never been to any of the Tampa shops, but I use it when I'm visiting my parents in Daytona.

I'm new to this thread.  I'm from Gulfport Fl, which is near Tampa Town.  There are a lot of antique shops in St Pete for anyone collecting Victorian items
