Default Plenty of people over the years have asked about my username, so here ya go...

This video will explain it better than any words. The only thing not included in that video is Linville Falls which created the gorge and continues to carve it out:

That small town you can see down in the valley in the night shots is Morganton, NC. That's where I'm from. It's where my family has lived since prior to the existence of this country. My many times great grandfather was William Cuthbertson and he fought in the Battle of King's Mountain in the Revolutionary War that pretty much brought an end to the war in the south. He's buried near his homestead which is about 4 miles as the crow flies from where my grandparents live and where my Dad grew up. He was born in Tyrone Country, Ireland in 1740 and died at the ripe old age of 98.

So, there you have it. That's the story behind the username.

...all this time I've been reading that as "LinvilleGEORGE!"
So I guess your name probably isn't George then, eh??
