Does have a coal country look to it but that would be a loooong haul on a short trip, even for a young, dedicated trout fisherman.

Plenty of squalor in TN. And other closer places - lots to go around, even.

I see plenty of older gentlemen in waders getting out of cars with Gwinnett plates when I skirt the Davidson on the way to greener (or at least less crowded) pastures, and that run isn't really any farther than it is from Asheville parts of WV and KY, and the drive rather less of a white knuckler. There are a lot of drives I make to fish that are longer than this one, this is just the longest drive I'll make for trout.

There's certainly squalor enough to go around, and that's god's own truth. I found some straight pipes in the upper part of a drainage I consider "home waters" just last fall. What most of Southern Appalachia can't match Coal Country for is squalor in the ruins of wealth long vanished. Most of the region never had any glory days. Some of those coal camps used to be something.

Cool Dang NC Highway PDs!

Looks like local LE is getting slack about enforcing the road blocks again ...
