I did 800 miles for work this past weekend and took a couple of days on the way back to do some camping. I was in Lebanon and Abingdon Virginia for work but from there I took Route 58 from Abingdon over to Collinsville and from Collinsville turned north on a bunch of back roads up to Floyd Virginia. Floyd has a really nice art, hippie, and folk music scene. It also has really great food and coffee. Its worth a trip to visit just by itself. From there after stocking up for dinner and breakfast I headed for the Blue Ridge Parkway which is about 8 miles from Floyd. The Parkway unlike the Skyline Drive is 45 mph and less traffic even with the Fall Foliage craziness. I stay away from the Skyline Drive because its 35 mph and bumper to bumper. Also speed traps every few miles. Anyway that area of South West Virginia especially route 58 from Abingdon to Collinsville is prefect for touring and camping. Best trip of the year. Photo is at Otter Creek Campground on the BRP.
