Ugh I know where that is too! Yes it is really great to have it down here! I just wish that there was more ppl on here from West TN I think (so far) I'm the olny one from here! Cara wants to find out how many are here in TN and see if we can get together at sometime and do something! I belive there are some others here from VA. You might think about setting up a group for them like that!
