    I've heard of the term East coast thrown around.. which I understand to mean the east edge of the country. Something I wonder though is what states/places is considered the east coast?

    So, I'm guessing that means kentucky and Illinois are technically the east coast?

    Technically... but I call it Midwest.

    I consider East Coast the states that border the Atlantic ocean.

    Usually it implies from Washington DC to Boston Mass. All the cities with tight non truck type roads

    Ah, I am at Maryland right now.. I've heard a lot of drivers complaining about driving in the east coast.. but right now I don't think it's too horrible.. downtown Chicago was certainly worse. (I'm at Baltimore, MD.)
     
    Vic Firth Thanks this.

    Thats funny, I don't care who you are. Guess that means beyond the Mississippi, it'd be "Chanel West Coast"?
