Audio is important to mapping. When you hike for hours and then pour over maps, you need music and interviews that compliment the geography.

Cumberland Gap switched hands four times during the Civil War. A old tune called "Cumberland Gap" relates the tale of a soldier stranded at the Gap after the war. He bemoans how the waters can't clean his face and not a dollar could be made. His only way home was to walk.
