Only now that I think about it do I realize he probably knew all of those backwoods crap-holes because he was railfanning there.
I do that all the time to people. They mention that they are going/went to some part of a state and I'll ask "what town?" More than likely, I'll have heard of the town or one nearby, which usually causes strange looks. I attribute it to railfan trips and my love of maps.
