We live at 1700 feet elevation, usually cool enough that you dont need AC.
We actually live in the Pisgah National Forest.
It is a little place called Mortimer, NC. (N35 59.885 W81 44.699)
There is a US forest campground just one mile away called Mortimer Campground.
We have to drive 8 miles of dirt winding road #1328 by the famous Wilson Creek to get in here.
When it gets too hot here, we can move up the up the mountain to the Parkway with an elevation of 3400 feet and its always cool there.
