I'm turning 30 in August. I want to plan a solo roadtrip for that same time frame. I have from August 8th through August 12th free. I'm starting at Winston Salem NC. I have never been further north than WV. I grew up in TN and KY so that's not in my plan. I have been through SC extensively, and GA, FL, and the deep south are out due to it being so hot this time of year. I have been looking into WV, OH, etc. but I'm open to anything that's not TOO far away.
I'd love to see some of the wonders of this area - the mountains, the forests, the national parks. I'm jealous of the scenery in the west, but we have to have some great stuff in the East as well.
Where would you go? I'd like to do only up to 350 miles a day or so. I drive 625 miles home one way so i'm pretty used to driving, but I wouldn't want to be too far away from home on the drive back.
