Kentucky is a place I have always wanted to visit. Now I understand why this is your favorite state dad. After I watched the series Justified, I really wanted to go to taste the bourbon, eat fried chicken, try “Apple Pie”, travel up a holler, see the beautiful fall, and go to harlan. We did all that. For years I have read people’s tellings of living in the hollers up in the appalations and of the coal wars. Infact, I am now reading “Hillbilly Elegy”. His life story, the Hillbilly Hwy and a culture in crisis, all started about 20 miles from where we stayed.
