3. My experience in Illinois as well

I lived there for a decade and all but one or two friends I made were from other places. Other people I knew had the same experience. The Illinois natives always seemed to be afraid you were going to rip them off and bwere suspicious of outsiders. I lived downstate but wondered if it was a Chicago influence or something.

As far as Cali ex-pats that is happening in many places, including here in AZ.They are really driving up housing costs.
