Are there people who live near places like this where it's best not to get too deep into the woods because of the people who live there? Anybody have some good stories to tell? Has my mind been warped by movies such as Deliverance and Wrong Turn?

Just wondering.
Defined redneck and hillbilly.

I have come across many people you so called hillbilly lots of guns they hunt and fish ,don't look after house , really messy and dirty their house , hate city and dress in cowboy boots and country look.
This what I call hillbilly most them live in woods or country.

The underclass is more your criminal type normally may fight ,steal ,DUI and do drugs so on don't look after house , really messy and dirty their house and really poor .

The redneck is more your racist and hardcore conservative and love the way things where in old days they can be lower or middle income.

The ghetto type would be more your city type wannabe thugs and urban type.

To me this guy more underclass than hillbilly.

I'd say anywhere in Appalachia. Not only are they in the middle of nowhere but they're in the mountains too. The whole area of S West Virginia, E Kentucky, SW Virginia, E Tennessee and W North Carolina have some really isolated small villages in the mountains that are almost impossible to find. There are some abandon towns there too like Thurmond, West Virginia.

There was a little town I went through once with my parents and my brother eight years in Tennessee up in the Appalachian mountains that was really spooky. I remember the road to this town was real long, it was also real dark and there weren't any lamps. It scared the bejesus out of me. Still sends shivers down my spine to think about it.

I hate to say this, but I couldn't wait to get out of Gettysburg PA. The battlefield was cool, but the town was so depressing. Not creepy, but depressing.

Creepiest town I ever went to was some place near Beckley, West Virginia (which isn't so great either). It was full of those run down old row houses that I've seen a lot of in West Virginia. Some of the buildings looked like businesses but the only one that appeared open had "XXX" on the sign. Every vehicle was an old pick up truck. Everybody had a mullet, except for some neo nazis I saw at a convenience store. And yes, they were neo nazis. It was a father and his kids with shaved heads, white power t shirts, and a truck with a nazi flag. The whole town was horrible.

Georgia has plenty of creepy little towns, but none as bad as that s far as I can remember.

Countryfisher - I'm curious what town you are refering to - I don't know of any small towns way up inthe smoky mountains - they are mostly in the valleys. Do you remember where you started your dirve? There are some towns up in the Cumberland plateau towards the center of the state, could that have been it?

Workaholics, you prbably encountered an old coal camp.
