Welcome aboard OCDO Chris - lots of good people and information here.
First familiarize yourself with the laws of your state, get all of the training you can and carry a digital recorder. Personally, I do not look for a list of "friendlies" - I presume everyone to be friendly until proven otherwise. The references to anti freedom loving establishments is regularly reported here. Look for signs, but don't ask ahead of time - that may initiate negative thinking/response.
Also look into the West Virginia Citizens Defense League (http://www.wvcdl.org/) and give serious consideration to joining.
