Smoky Mountains/BRP Recommendations?
Next week Mrs. Mono and I are headed to the Tennessee Tandem Rally (June5, 6, 7) in Maryville, TN.
We have no real schedule other than the rally, and might be there for a week to ten days.
I plan to take at least one day on the return trip to visit the Chickamauga National battlefield area, as it is the last of the large Civil War sites that I've not visited.
We were also thinking of taking one or two days for an out and back on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We don't mind driving a few extra hours for a some pleasant riding. For an out and back with touring gear we would prefer motel/hotel rather than camping out.
We'd like to keep daily mileage at 35-50 miles or so.
Any recommendations regarding a possible two day trip on the BRP would be appreciated.
