Join the West Virginia Forum posting poll. We need an identity. For sale posting contacts have shown a number of WV GT'ers. Let's get this going. Some of us, especially Eastern Panhandlers, are very far away from other local GT members. We may be able to get group buys or shoots together.

I'm in. #1

Don't leave a brother hanging.

I'm in but you need to edit that. Don't be an apologist. West Virginia is a great state. Montani Semper Liberi, by God.....and Glocks!

Cool with that. I'm really not knocking the state. I enjoy living here. I choose to live here, and that's the proof in the pudding.

When I was younger I used to think this state was the pits. Then as I grew older and have graduated college I have come to realize that it truly is one of the most beautiful areas in the country. Yeah sure there is a certain amount of barefoot redneck that you have to put up with, but it's a small price to pay for the majority of people here who would give you the shirt off their back. Not to mention, there isn't a prettier drive than Charleston to Morgantown on I-79 IMHO. I haven't really gotten a chance to explore the eastern part of the state much, so maybe I am missing out. ;c ;c ;c

I grew up in Richwood surrounded my the Monongahela National Forest. In the mountains, by east coast standards. Didn't mean nothing then. It's just where I lived. Like Goosteady says, you go off to college, off to work in other places and now when I get back to see mom I'm always amazed at how beautiful the area is. There's a drive, The Highland Scenic Highway, that is as stunning a drive as there is. Shame so much of the state is economically depressed. Richwood very much included.

You're not missing much, havinig not traveled to the Eastern Panhandle. We're wedged in up here between VA and MD (gasp) and not really like the rest of the state at all. Martinsburg is a nice little town. Harpers Ferry NHP is interesting. If you're into Civil War history, there's lots of that here. The upside is that it's really the only part of the state experiencing growth. We're now offically part of the Greater D.C/Baltimore Metro area. Of course there's good and bad to that. I can be in D.C. from my house (and am more than I'd like) in 1.5 hrs, conversely, I can be way in the sticks in about 15 mins.

If you ever do come visit, any of you dang hillbillies, I'll take you to my range and buy at least the first beer. Todd

Milsurp Keep beating the bushes. Thanks for the edit on your original post. Much better.

I have lived in this great state all of my twenty two years and wouldn't give it up for anything. Almost heaven is an understatement when you look at the rest of the country. Untamed wilderness as far as the eye can see. I do love the great state of West Virginia.:)

By the way, count my vote:)

That's a world away from the EPan. I could be, from here, in DC, Balt. Philly, Pittsburgh even NYC in the time it would take to get to Parkersburg.

So you're #7

I'm about to see some of the Northern Panhandle on a business trip. Leaving today, and returning on Friday. Bush beating will need to be picked up by someone else ;) We could use some more threads spread out.

Glad to have you aboard, macjoc. Any WV'ers interested in milsurp rifles? Gotta sell to help the baby fund.
