Blue Ridge Country - January/February 2020 - 5

LETTERS

BACK ISSUES LEAD
TO NEW EXPERIENCES

I wrote to you three years ago, when I moved
to the beautiful Shenandoah Valley from Baton
Rouge, Louisiana, after losing everything in
a flood, including all my issues of Blue Ridge
Country. A couple of years ago on Craigslist,
someone had multiple years of back issues of
your magazine, back to 2004. I jumped at the
offer, and now reading them, they have a whole
new meaning. Before, I dreamed of this area,
through your stories, articles, even the ads. Now
I am living them.
Thank you for igniting those dreams, and
now helping fuel them and experience them.

BEST ISSUE YET?

-Bobby Cox, Broadway, Virginia

I have subscribed for many years, since moving
to Polk County, North Carolina, from New
England, and I enjoy your magazine thoroughly.
It is passed on after a new one comes and it has
been very helpful when I have visitors who may
be looking for a special place to visit while here.
The November/December issue is just
wonderful . . . as far as I'm concerned the best
you have ever produced. I have copied several
articles to send to friends as I know they will
speak to those people as they speak to me. This
issue I will keep and not pass on!
To be truthful, I don't read every article in
every edition, but this one piqued my interest
with every page.
Thank you for a great edition.

-Katharine Taft, Columbus, North Carolina
