Is anyone else having problems viewing recent posts in this and other threads?  The most recent one I can see is from CCinNJ from 1 day and 13 hours ago but I know there have been a few more and the most recent one listed in Today's Posts under the Forum Menu is from Sundancer about 21 minutes ago.

It's the software glitch from the latest update. Try deleting all of your contacts/friends in your user panel...and adding them back. That should fix it.

As sad as this sounds, where is the User Panel?
 
Found it!

WJ, between coneys in Detroit, smoothies in L.A., fish tacos in San Diego, cheesesteaks in Philly, cod cakes, baked beans & brown bread in Boston, meat & threes in the South and countless other regionally inspired travels you are definitely an inspiration to myself and many others to seek out the best specialties that so many cities and regions have to offer!

It seems as though there might be 2 kinds of chasers here.
 
1. Those who look for a specific dish regardless of where they are.
2. Those who look for regional specialties based on where they happen to be.
 
I'm a little of both, I guess.  I'm always on the lookout for barbecue regardless of where I am, even if it's not considered representative, and at the same time if there's a regional specialty that sounds interesting I'll try to give it a try as well.
 
As far as traveling great distances solely for food...I don't mind 30-40 miles each way (especially if it's a nice day for a drive) but hundreds of miles would be a bit much for me.
 
Awhile back Taco Bell ran a commercial about some 20-somethings that piled into a car and drove 900 miles each way just to get tacos made with those Doritos-based shells.  I wasn't exactly impressed.

I am solidly in this second category, those few times when I am actually travelling
 
Our top recent favorite was the rock shrimp at Dixie Crossroads.  If that place was in our neck of the woods, we'd eat there at least once a week

Ours is fish sandwiches.  We drive 250 miles round-trip to Port Clinton, OH for a walleye and a perch sandwich.  We often take a detour on the way home from PA to go to Wholey's in Pittsburgh.

In a related incident, I once traveled 500 miles rt in one day to ride the Coney Island Cyclone, and in the process ate at Nathan's and brought home several more pounds of them in a cooler.

2. Those who look for regional specialties based on where they happen to be.

I'd be both. I've covered close to 120,000 miles these past 8 years in our Camper Van RV and sometimes automobile (winter) mostly on the back roads or 90% off the freeways. This spring we spent two months traveling around Texas and I did have one destination in mind (planned for years) for a breaded pork tenderloin sandwich right on the Rio Grande border. Then along the Texas coast from Galveston to South Padre Island it was mostly seafood. Since we had time we did make a side trip into Louisiana, mostly Cajun country to tackle every variety of Cajun we could find including the marriage of a breaded pork tenderloin sandwich with fried crawfish and oysters at Prejeans in Lafayette, LA. That wasn't on the menu. I had to ask for it to be made up special.
 

 
I will also prioritize and seek out any brew pubs or microbreweries.

Brad - I would be in both categories, that is why I answered "YES"
