Shane's Roadtrip 2010

Must be the season for roadtrips. I have one of my own coming up and this one was a bit unplanned. I have to be in Salem, VA for 3 weeks on business with free weekends. That is a beautiful area. Also just a few hours from DC, Charlotte or Raliegh, NC. So basically, I am driving up 7/25 , leaving early in the morning from Jackson, TN. This may not be the route I take, but basically, here is where I am going:



Maybe I will try this stretch of highway out:

Looking for suggestions of roads to try in the area or even within a 4-5 hour drive of Salem. Also, would be fun to meet some Pelicans on the trip. My routes are fairly open at this point and I have a couple of weeks left to plan this out. I will be there from 7/25 through 8/13. So driving home on 8/13 and 8/14. But like I said, I have my weekends free and could drive to DC, Raliegh or Charlotte areas. I will see if one of my daughters will allow dad to use one of their cameras for the trip instead of my crappy cell phone cam.

Haha! I thought you might appreciate that. I just wouldn't want you to be without your car for that long again. I can't imagine going through what you had to deal with out there. Enjoy your trip!

here's some

Smoky mt natives hate the invasive brown trout. Stop at any bait & tackle and they will give you all the love finding and catching them. Sometimes even how to contact a property owner so you can fish out his brown trout.

if you're into makin flies i have some info on what locals use in the Fontana region
