    West Virginia is my home, and I doubt I would be able to call any other state that word. I live in the tri-state area, so there's always places to go if you don't want to eat or shop in the same place. There is a new strip mall beginning to be built along what is a very popular commute road, Route 60, which will definitely bring more attraction to the personal area. I think it's beginning to shape up here.

    I feel very safe 90% of the time. There is not much crime to worry about.
