Phew, I've finished a very rough plan of my trip (hard when you don't know half of where you want to go!). I've not researched many places to visit in GA/ SC/NC yet, so have left these blank and just guessed how much time I'll need/ left room for padding. I want to spend a good week in the Keys at least. I've never been anywhere like that before so really want to take some time to get a feel for it. I also want to spend a lot of time in and around the Smokies, because I get the feeling I'll love it there too, visiting all the craft workshops etc. I might compact everything and push it back a couple of days to give me more time in the Keys. This is just a very rough outline because I would love some input and suggestions on places to visit etc.
