A friend and I are planning a Blue Ridge Parkway tour in early August. We'll rendezvous in Asheville (he's coming down from the north, I'm coming up from Florida). We have looked at the maps, etc. But I would appreciate any tips, pointers, etc., about what to avoid and what not to miss. We have about three days free to just cruise once we arrive in Asheville and before we have to turn around and head for home.
And if anyone has a good suggestion for the Atlanta area to Asheville leg of the trip, I'd appreciate any advice on that too!!
