I enjoy researching West Virginia Coal Towns. Please note that for those people who dispute the veracity of the existence of a town, I am the guy who has crawled through wires, hornet nests, pepper sprayed wild animals, killed snakes, crawled in abandoned facilities and churches and houses, hacked through briars and thorns,dodged the fury of meth addicts, and driven hundreds of miles just to say, I was there. I watched my unincorporated community die on the vine, it is my hope to document these places to the best of my ability.

Oh the places we could go
