John, it was great to see you and share the road this past weekend.
That little piece of the blue ridge parkway we rode set the hook, I need to see more of it. My wife and her sister are taking the girls on a long weekend trip in a couple of weeks, I might have to skip work that Friday and take my own long weekend trip!

The only problem is how much of it do you want to ride? It's more than a day trip in length. But nearly all of it is like what you saw.

In 2015, I started at the northern end of Skyline Drive and rode the length of that and all of the Blue Ridge as well. It took me three days at speeds just a little above the speed limit.

it was at a campground on Skyline Drive that a doe tried to go into my tent while I was sitting at the picnic table ten feet away.

The one Parkway that I'd really like to ride the entire length of is the Natchez Trace Parkway. I rode a good sized piece of it, but not the entire length. It's another really good ride.

Oh, I know I won't be able to ride all of it in a three day weekend, but I'll take what I can get.
Still doing research and looking at maps, I've got a couple weeks to figure it out.
