I suspect you were attempting to be humorous, but I must say my experience
with the folks in the South was extremely positive while on the trail, in
particular in Erwin which was one of the nicest trail towns on the whole AT.
We had people offering us rides there when we weren't even asking.  Erwin
has been given a bad rap in the past and it is undeserved today for sure.
