I get a few press releases. None have turned into posts until now. Today I received a email about
Dear Mr. Gardner,

I'm working with the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) to get the word out about a new website devoted to travel in Appalachia,, and I think readers of "Oncee@Blogger" would appreciate a chance to see what this site has to offer.

Not only does provide information about the 13 states that make up Appalachia, it also includes access to the recently released Appalachian Driving Tours Map. Commissioned by the ARC, the map features 28 driving trails throughout the Appalachian region, each of which leads to a broad array of historical, archaeological, cultural, and scenic sites.

Autumn is the best time of the year to visit Appalachia, and taking one of the tours found on is a great way to catch the foliage and to learn more about the multitude of sights the region has to offer; the website is as useful whether you're journeying across the tree-lined roads of West Virginia or down along the river in Mississippi. What's more, visitors can search for drives by state as well as by theme. As a result, can just as easily help you plan a trip through Tennessee as through Pennsylvania, while pointing out sights of interest whether you love music or history.

In addition, has a Google maps feature to help travelers plan their next driving vacation to Appalachia, as well as links to the 13 Appalachian state tourism offices for additional information.

I noticed that your blog speaks about Appalachia so I thought your readers would be interested in As such, I was wondering if you would be kind enough to post a link to the site. I can provide you with a button or banner to use for your link.

The Appalachian Region possesses a wealth of scenery and culture and the driving maps featured on are a great way to discover both. I hope you'll look around the site and pass the information along to your readers.

All the best,
