While I grew up in Pennsylvania on the Allegheny Plateau, I've always considered myself a child of Appalachia. As a kid, the Great Smoky Mountains was our only vacation spot, and it remains something of a second home to me. Now I live in Tennessee, and my brother lives in Virginia. Between his place and mine is paradise. From Maine to Georgia, the mountains are calling and I must go!
