Amanda Carey takes GC at Trans-Sylvania MTB "7 Days Tough"

I grew up in Brevard,Transylvania County, a place of great woods,and trails, located in beautiful Western North Carolina and is called the "Land of Waterfalls" 

For most people, Transylvania is a stereotype,
a fictional place to air dark attitudes, an alleged place of

Dracula Castle in Romania!

Just as Pennsylvania means "Penn's Woods" 
and Sylvania means a kind of lightbulb that burns out fairly quickly,
Transylvania means literally "through the woods" or "beyond the woods."

Amanda Carey 

know's her way through both!

Both in Penn 2011-13 and my a neck-of-the woods in NC!
