We'll stay Wed night in Williamsburg at the Super 8. Thursday we'll have about 167 miles on into Lebanon by back roads and US highways. There are some great 2 lane options for getting to where we're going, but we may sacrifice fun for time that first leg to Abingdon.

    We are considering the option of heading west on US 460, pick up Eggleston Road to route 100, and get on route 42 and take it all the way thru Saltville. Then we'd get on US 19/58A to Big Stone Gap. This route is nice, not terribly curvy but still fun. I figure it'd take about 4 hours or so to get to Big Stone Gap that way. Then we'd hope to get to Williamsburg by 4 pm.

    Taking US 460 to a bit west of Tazewell and get on US 19 south to US 58-A and 58-A to Big Stone Gap would work well also. I may propose that to my group as a way to stay off I-81 and still make good time.

    At the rally look for Twin Valley Riders in the Chartered Club Camping area, that'll be us.

    Did you mean to say 19 south or should it have been 91 south

    Never mind...I see what you mean. How will you get from Williamsburg to Lebanon? I'm interested in this route.

    Ragman, I'm not for sure how we will go from Williamsburg to Lebanon. May take 92 west to US 27 South, to Elgin and west on 52 thru Livingston, then onto 85 west thru Gainsboro and onto Lebanon. It looked pretty interesting on Google Maps, especially 52.
