After leaving Roanoke, VA we decided to bypass the next section of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Parkway Drive was amazing, but the winding roads, 35mph speed limit, asian tourist drivers, groups of motorcycle riders and endless push bike riders meant that we were only covering about 100 miles in a whole day of driving.   So we jumped on the I-81 and drove 200mi towards Bristol, VA and then drove down through the Cherokee National Forest passing through Tennessee briefly and ...
