Abingdon, yes I've been there. I worked in Lebanon and actually met a beekeeper down around Carbo that I got a swarm from. I got two supers of honey from that swarm that year. (still have the queen
) It was around the first of April and I drive out to his house every day for lunch. I caught another swarm there also but it had plans on going somewhere other than WV so it it left the hive I put it in. There are some real nice people down there in Washington County. I used to go to a bar called "The Old Mill". I think that was its name. It was and old mill on the river close to Abingdon. I had a lot of fun there. I hope you get your bees going good and get some honey from them.
