Who Would Have Known?

I moved to Northern Virginia from Los Angeles about five years ago and fell in love with the lifestyle and people. Two years ago, we bought twenty acres on a mountain directly on the boarder of Virginia and West Virginia. I had always thought that West Virginia was a poor land full of rednecks but guess what? I was wrong!! The land in West Virginia (I go about every other weekend) is beyond beautiful and the people are the nicest people that I have ever been around. I have traveled all over this world and no place makes me feel more at home and more proud of America than when I am in West Virginia. If you have never been.... you simply must give it a taste. You will not regret it.

Welcome to Greenbrier Valley Airport - Google Maps
Wow!!! That was a great video!!!! Thank you for sharing it and for the nice response. I meant what I said about West Virginia and Virginia for that matter. I retired from the LAPD and never thought I would ever leave Los Angeles.... ever! But God works in mysterious ways and now I am here and I have the cabin up on the mountain.... on the boarder of West Virginia and I will say this. When my time comes.... I want to be buried up on that mountain. Those folks up there are real old timers. They have been up there for generations and they live life in a different.... more meaningful way than what I am used to. The thing is.... I never thought that they would accept a city guy like me and my family... I thought we would be considered intruders. Man... was I wrong!! The folks up on that mountain welcomed us with open arms and have always been so nice and friendly. Like family! I know that you understand... its where you are from. But trust me.... lots of people will never know the feeling of a gravel road, a loud creek, smoke from the chimney, and outhouse for a bathroom and honest to goodness real... authentic people for neighbors. I love it! Thanks again friend and stay safe!

Explore wild, wonderful West Virginia from an entirely new perspective — aboard any one of our four unique trains! From April to December, the surrounding mountains and valleys come alive with the welcoming wail of whistles from beautifully refurbished and historic locomotives that depart both Elkins and Durbin depots. The Durbin & Greenbrier Valley Railroad offers Five Mountain Rail Adventures, each with its own unique journey, into some of the best scenery this side of the Rockies! Our unique collection of trains roll through a potpourri of West Virginia mountain wilderness areas! Choose to chug alongside a clean, mountain river, and take in the sights of rolling meadows of wildflowers and the sounds of a genuine steam locomotive. Or… climb to over 4,000 feet in elevation in a powerful diesel, burrow under the mighty Cheat Mountain (via an 1,800 foot tunnel featuring an “S” curve of the track inside), and negotiate the two sharpest mainline railroad curves in the U.S.!
