Quebec City to Charleston SC

We are heading out on a 3 1/2 month "circle the continent" RV excursion in our Itasca Sunova 29R with Saturn Vue toad, leaving British Columbia mid August, travelling across Canada as far east as Quebec City, then south to Charleston SC, Georgia, paossibly northern Florida, west to New Orleans, San Antonio, Palm Desert CA, and north to home.

On the Quebec City to Charleston route, which we'll be doing in late September to mid October, we definitely want to take in as much of Route 100 in Vermont as we can and the Skyline Drive portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Beyond that, we need ideas. We try to avoid big cities whenever possible, so Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, and Washington DC are not priorities for us.

Any suggestions of highways to favour or avoid, particularly in the Vermont to Virginia stretch, "don't miss" sites, or good enroute RV parks would be greatly appreciated.

No suggestions for you, however, I'm planning on doing basically the same route ...... hopefully starting early October.

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread for any suggestions others have.

You can do I-81 down to New Market and pick up the Skyline Drive there. It turns into the blue Ridge Parkway at I-64. Stay on it to I-77 and south on I-77 from there. That's 200 miles or so at 45 MPH speed limit and lots of twists and turns. Beautiful drive with lots of nice overlooks. Watch your speed as it is strictly enforced.

Stay at the Peaks of Otter Campground and drop down to Bedford in your car to see the D-Day Memorial. Spectacular. Bedford lost 23 soldiers on D-Day, biggest loss percentage wise of any city in the US. Well worth a visit.

If you'll be in the area at fall colors time stop early in order to get a campsite all along the Skyline or BRP.

Actually, you can take 81 then a very short distance on 66 to FrontRoyal and jump on the north end beginning of the Skyline Drive and drive the whole thing down south. Slow drive but great views and has campgrounds is you want to stay over a nite. The Big Meadows and Skyland campgrounds have logging and a restaurant w. great views and a pub with live entertainment. You will miss them if you get on Skyline Drive at New Market/Rt 33.

Re the D Day thing: They we National Guard troops and were all on one landing craft. After that members of Guard units from small towns were dispersed among many different units to avoid a repeat, IIRC.
