Default Putting your right hand on your heart, who thinks that ...

choosing California state of USA for Rig'n'Roll was a great idea

I put my hand on my heart and say I do. So, I voted YES. This is my opinion and I don't afraid to voice it.

I personally think it really is. There are many reasons and I personally think that patriotism should not be the primary reason to say "No". And for the record, I was born in USSR and my native language is Russian which I speak every day.

So, long story short, my reasons:
- California is not Russia and for some reason, I like to explore "other worlds" more than those which I live in - more interesting if you wish (as a consequence I like to travel);
- There is sun in California 350 days a year and I like sunny countries, I like sun in general. The countries and cities look far more appealing with a blue sky and bright sun;
- California has far better roads than Russia. The roads are also versatile. Highways and viaducts and simply more developed road infrastructure.
- California (and USA in general) have far better, more nice looking and longer rigs than Russia makes (and cars in general), even despite the fact Kamaz may win Paris-Dakar rally.
- California is a beautiful state, palms, sun, mountains, deserts, etc.. . Russia has mountains and beautiful nature too, but it's different and this will never change because of the moderate climate. All you will be able to see are plain trees, and trees again driving on russian roads. California's nature is verstatile, not just trees..... ;
- Californian local police is not trying to receive bribes when they stop you, so you respect them more;
- California has very advanced trucking infrastructure;

Well, these are main ones.

What do you think?

I think it was a wonderful idea. Half the reason I want this game so much is that I never been to California, and always wanted to go there, and since the developers made the California in the game so realistic, it will be almost like going there.

California is one of the most interesting states in America without doubt. Where else can you find mountains, desert, ocean, world's biggest trees, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Hollywood, and many other things?

Of course I would love to see my home state of Pennsylvania, which is also a beautiful state, but California is the best.

I am going to vote yes, as a Canadian I would have rather seen British Columbia, lots of hills and amazing scenery. But never having been to California (outside of LA and San Diego) I think it will be neat to see. Traffic wise, I would go with California, just because there is so much more, in BC you don't hit much traffic at all, especially up North. In a driving simulator traffic makes it difficult and interesting.

California is perfect. I would sure not wanna drive in Russia, or other Europe. Though Italy or Greece would be cool. Oh, and think about Honshu! Tokyo, Kioto, and such.. But California is cool to me.
I wonder if there's ever going to be a trucking game positioned in Finland
Or in Russia and Finland, cause there's A LOT of trucks from Russia driving in here. Hauling cars from here to Russia, and such.

I would have to say no. California should not have been chosen, it's not very interesting. I'm from calgary alberta canada and I've been through all over the states, and to tell you the truth, california was the most boring state to drive through (besides north of say.....weed.....) and it was the most disguisting place I've ever been. I thought I've seen bad before, but not till I went to california. Sitting in 35+ heat with the seat sticking to your ass, traffic backed up for miles without a car moving in site, people yelling at eachother having road rage....etc etc etc. It was especially nerveracking trying to find a spot to sleep with hoodlums, bums, ghettos surrounding you. I drove around for 2 hours trying to find a spot that looked somewhat safe. Even the guys in the truckstops were weirdos, not to mention the lot lizards. You haven't experienced a real truck drive till you drove the narrow, sometimes scary, but beautiful roads of british columbia. Or even ontario is a interesting drive, longest province to drive through EVER, but there's lots of animals and lots of scenery. Hell, even alaska would be beautiful to drive through. Haven't been there yet but it's next on my list and bound to be 10X more interesting and pretty. Certainly more than california has to offer anyways. I don't know how people can stand living in that hole, or why they'd even want to go there. When that major fault line gives out on the west coast, I'll say good riddance, sink that entire part of the continent. Take vancouver while you're at it.
