We are planning on attending the FMCA rally in Asheville, NC in a few weeks. We will start our trip from Gettysburg National Park area, traveling mostly US Route 81 and switching to US Rt. 26 near Kingsport, TN.
Our concern is Rt. 26 as it is not even mentioned in our "Mountain Directory East". Wonder if it is because our copy was published in 2004!
Years ago, we attended this rally in Asheville and are not looking forward to the grades around Back Mountain on Rt. 40 that we will travel over after the rally on our way to attend the Barbecue Festival in Lexington, NC on the 29th of October.
Has anyone traveled these roads recently?
We would appreciate any feedback, tips, cautions that you may have.
Thanks in advance
