Im in Yakima, Washington for now. Had to come here for College. Notice I said HAD to come here . I was born and raised in Pendleton, Oregon and thats where I'll be eventually moving back to, in that area. The reason there is more iron collectors east of the mississippi is because there is more people, and more iron. I dont think Engines and tractors really got hot and heavy in the northwest until the early 1900-1910's. Dont see to many before 1900 engines out here.

One of those few west of the rockies. In the way south section of california (less that 60 miles from the border), and, just by sheer luck, just minutes away from a great museum and show.

A very enlightening map is the one provided with the 2007 farm show guide. Everyone here should have the show guide. This USA map has a dot for every show. Granted the shows are only advertisers in the guide; but, you see a high concentation of shows in the mid west and north east. Very little on the west coast. The 'dot' distribution is the answer you seek.

Buy a show guide. look at the map. Your answer awaits.

Edit:
If you really need to know, you can go threw the stack "member list" and see where every registered member comes from. A lot more work, but more accurate than reviewing the meger few answers to this post.

Just Barely east of the Mississippi, But WAY down south in Southern Mississippi.(Katrina land) ...
Fairbanks Morse, Economy, (Sears Roebuck catalog stuff), and just a spattering of everything else is mostly all you find down here..LOTS of big ole' Fairbanks Morse cotton gin engines scattered around from when cotton was king...But we manage to find a rare one now and then...Kewannee, IH, Schmidt's, aeromotor, etc.
Shore is fun lookin' for 'em!...More fun to find 'em.
