Appalachian Patria

Appalachian Intellectual. To me that means plain thinking. I am A Non Commissioned Officer in the Army Reserves. Let me say...My views expressed here are mine and not those of The U.S. Army, Army Reserve or my fellow brethren in The National Guard. This is entirely Sua Sponte. This is My Thinking. I'm single and in my mid 30's. Politicaly, I'm a Libertarian. (Again, Sua Sponte.I do not represent the Libertarian Party.)I love my native Appalachia, Rock n Roll and...I love God.

Location: Brevard, North Caroilina

I started blogging for two reasons. I was concerned about the changes to the area I live in, Southern Appalachia and I was about to go to the war. I was in Iraq in 06 and 07 and now Kuwait in 11 and 12. Blogging was a means of documenting my experiences and hoping it would help gain clarity. I don't feel that way about it any more. It's said people write blogs because they are frustrated, that's why people read them too. That makes us sound apocalyptic. Are we? Let it be said, what I say here is of my own thinking. This is entirely Sua Sponte and not an official representation of the U.S. Military or the U.S. Government as a whole.

This New Blogger

This new Blogger thing is weird. I don't know if I can get into this. The Blog ain't the same.  In an inside joke, I started calling myself the Appalachianist. Now, I'm Hill Billy Rave...The original name of the blog from another inside joke. Inside jokes catch up to you sooner or later. But, what would life be without them?And that old picture of me, the about me...Gone. So, I have to decide, am I going to do this or not? I made a great deal of friends through this. Great people, salt of the earth folks. But, blogging is an awkward affair.

There ain't no place I'd rather be than home right now. I miss the place. It won't be much longer. I intend for this to be the last trip to the desert. I've got allot of mixed feelings about the whole thing. Right now, I look forward to green grass and hearing the leaves rustle in the wind. I look forward to seeing little kids play and looking into the eyes of dogs. I long to hear the katydids.

It says that I have 15 followers. A good part of which I've never seen before. If that's you, thanks.

Time for another inside joke...
The Appalachianist.
