Wow I'm so glad I discovered this forum! Lots of great stories here.
Today is Friday and I am psyched because we are leaving tomorrow morning enroute for the TN / NC / VA / W.VA / KY mountainous region with no particular idea where we will end up! Since we went to TN & KY last year I am leaning a little more towards NC and WVA areas but it is not yet written in stone. We had a great time spending most of our time in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Smokey Mountains last year mid December. Cumberland Falls in KY was absolutely BREATHTAKING; I say that, and I am known to be tough to entertain, lol.
Being from Florida, my wife wants to see snow on this trip so I imagine we will have to bounce around the mountainous areas, and hope for a low pressure system, in order to accomplish that.
To start our trip, we will be leaving 6am tomorrow (Sat) morning here in SW Florida and will be taking I75 north. Then I am unsure if we will continue on I75 or jump over and take I95. It all depends what fun is out there waiting for us that we have not discovered yet.
Does anyone have any suggestions as far as scenic routes, or interesting stop-offs???? THANKS!
We will have the laptop in the car with wireless national access so I will be checking this thread and chiming in from time to time!
WOO HOO WE'RE GOIN' ON A ROADDDDD TRIP!
