redtressed, thank you so much for your so interesting and so informative response. Really enjoyed reading everything. Over the years I’ve known a few folks from West Virginia – Logan, Parkersburg, and the extreme southwestern area. All were fine folks and seems here with you West Virginians are continuing in that tradition. My only time in West Virginia was years ago passing thru that extreme northern narrow tip. Seems the state was only about 30 miles wide at that point. Also enjoyed hearing performances by several West Virginia performers/instructors who in the past usually attended the annual Dulcimer Festival in Memphis (which unfortunately no longer exists). Remember folks there talking about the summer music and crafts programs offered by, is it, Elkins College? Know the materials they had re that looked like it would be a great adventure to attend. The state run "The Tamarack" really sounds fascinating; a great place to begin a West Virginia visit if one is unfamiliar wtih the state. Don’t believe I’ve run across anything quite that extensive/comprehensive in any states I’ve visited. Do tell more about your pepperoini roll. That sounds good but is totally foreign to me. Thanks again for your great post. Have always heard how beautiful your mountains are. Would love to get up your way to tour around one of these days.
