[NAFEX] feral apples

While not addressing apples per se., In Search of Lost Roses by Thomas
Christopher covers finding Old Roses, many techniques of which can be
directly or indirectly applied to hunting any type of cultivated plant.
And it's a fun read.

Subject: [NAFEX] feral apples


	Part of the lore I have picked up about NAFEX is that, in the
old days 
at least, members were oftentimes literal "fruit explorers", seeking out

rare specimens in the wilderness areas and trekking through the 
backwoods to find abandoned orchards for those heirloom varieties.

	My question relates to the latter activity:  where does one look
for 
stands of old apple trees?  Did y'all compile a guidebook or list?  I'd 
love to make some day trips this fall seeking out old Southern apples in

the Blue Ridge or Southern Appalachians.  How would I begin to locate 
such places?

	Many thanks,

Thomas
