Turtleman and Adams said they’re happy to help bring a smile to the people of West Virginia.

“Yeah, I can’t thank West Virginia enough. They’ve been so great to us, and I absolutely love being here,” said Adams.

“I mean, peoples need to be cheered up every now and then. We do this for cheering up. We do it for helping little kids. You know, raise them up right, teach them how to be a hillbilly, and how to survive off the land. We ain’t doing nothing wrong but having fun,” said Turtleman.

The event helped raise money for the Marion County Discovery Center.
