Hey guys, I'm just curious to know where everyone is at across the globe? Get as specific as you want. I definitely understand if you don't want to share too much on the interwebs.

It would just be really cool to find out that some of us are practically neighbors!

I'm originally from Kankakee county in IL. I am currently staying in Mahomet, IL near Champaign/Urbana home of the Fighting Illini! (not a sports fan, but they are here and I figured someone will know who they are). Also of note in Champaign, IL; Hobbico and Horizon Hobby have head quarters here and for those of you who watch That 70's Show Hyde frequently wears a shirt that says "Slot and Wing" on it, that is a hobby shop here!

Yeah. Once I saw a new mobile armor getting ready to take off from Anaheim. It was piloted by some girl. She looked cute, so asked her if she could for some cafe coffee. She declined and said that the new SUIT was her boyfriend who was supposed to be returning to space. I later realized that what I saw was the Zeta Gundam.

Ypsilanti, MI. Nobody from out of state knows how to say that, or at least telemarketers/phone service people don't. Always a good time listening to people try to say that, or spell it when they ask for your city.

There are a lot of cities in Wisconsin and Michigan have names like that. I forget if they are Native American names or not, but there's a reason they are spelled "strangely" and pronounced differently than they appear.

I was born in Trier , Germany and I've been living here ever since .

This place is fairly awfully boring . By the time I was born , the church had taken control over this place and it has not changed at all although people have been becoming less religous . I have not had (and I will probably never) have any issues with telling one where I live . Nobody has ever come here and nobody will . And this stupid event called "heilig rock tage" (engl : "holy rock days") are going on . This place has been filled up with tourists all around . It would not be a problem if this place were big . And the people themselves are retards . The majority here does not have any brains .

I know there is a hobby shop, but I don’t know if they carry anything Gundam related, I don’t build any models, think I’m the only one who doesn’t on this forum. (Not that I don’t want to I’m thinking of starting this summer provided I have the money for it)

Hello people who are mostly American! (and one German post I see too!). Any Canadians here? (I saw one post from Vancouver.)
I was born in Japan. When I was young, my family moved from Japan to China (I'm part Chinese too). Then after staying there for only a couple of months, we moved straight to Niagara Falls, Canada. And haha, no, not IN the FALLS, but in the city surrounding the Falls.

Anyways, we moved several times, to Hamilton, and eventually to Kitchener-Waterloo. To get Gundam kits here, we usually just wait until we travel back to our family in Asia (where there's tons of anime shops), or we could just visit Toronto (with its huge Asian population, there's always shops selling gundam model kits here).
