My fiance, two friends, and I are starting to plan a weekend traveling through the backcountry of the east.
We are starting from Lansdale, PA and we want to head south by south west. We are looking to go through the back country. No interstates is a necessity. We have approximately 11 hours of daylight in that time of the year and we want to use all of it on the road.
We were thinking of going west to the Francis Scott Key Highway down to the Frederick area. From that area to go west to Harpers Ferry area. We would take US 340 through WV and VA to Waynesboro and possibly Staunton for the first day.
On the way back home we would go on US 250 west to WV to US 220. We would take 220 to WV 55 near Petersburg. We would head from Wardensville north on 259. 259 meets up with US 522 to Berkely Springs. From there we would go 9 east followed by US 11 north to US 30 east.
Is this possible? Adding 3 hours to each day for stoppage time it would be 10 and 12 respectively. What can we expect to see along the way?
