From the album: Miscellaneous RoadtripsStanding on the Appalachian Trail, just off the parking lot on US-441 at Newfound Gap. And no, I'm not going to hike the trail...I'm on a roadtrip. The Appalachian Trail is part of my discussion on National Forests and National Parks to be found along US-2.

Well, 2013 has started out with a lot of road tripping for the wife and I. So far we have made the 400 mile round trip up to Washington D.C, A 700 mile round trip to Myrtle Beach through North and South Carolina, and an almost 1200 mile through Va., Md, WV and Pa. to the northwest cornwer of PA. Puttin on a lot of miles on my Jeep Wranger. Last weekend we drove home from SC with the top down, and then this weekend it was 19 degrees and snowing like crazy as we left NW Pa. But gotta say the scenery through the backwoods of West Virginia and Maryland is incredible. Even had deer running out across the road in front of us. But my poor jeep took a stone and now I have to replace the window. Bad thing is, I just replaced it in November for the same reason. Also took lots of pictures for "South of the Border" in S.C. a kitchy rest stop, tourist atraction that's been on the NC/SC border since 1950 where it started as a beer stand. I will post pictures later. They have some very catchy and colorful billboards with witty sllogans like "Pedro's Weather Forecast: Chili today, Hot Tomale", and "You never Sausage a place (You're Always a Wiener at Pedro's!)". So, has anyone else started of the new year with lots of miles? And what interesting places have you seen?
OK folks, I am in Virginia Beach area of Virginia. Who can recommend some good day trips in the SE Virginia/NE North Carolina area? Also any recommendation for good Mom and Pop eateries and motels would be appreciated.
