Ya. I agree on the paint cans We make sure to pick up some on our way out. We've been there several times too. We always walk out there as part of tradition

As to the paint artist. In 2011 the DW & I went there & painted our names there--two full cans of bright orange paint. One of our kids was there 3 days later and had our pictures were we painted our names. They could not find ANY of our orange paint. Lot of paint goes on these cars every day Lol.

As to going there to see a big time landmark I guess one might not want to go too far out of your way.

In Virginia check out Pamplin Park, a museum and park dedicated to the Civil War Soldier on both sides.

Just to clarify, that is the entire idea of the Ranch.

The Kentucky Horse Park is a worthwhile stop. Has a great campground too.

The big Texan will allow you to stay the night in their lot too.

Some suggestions, depending on your timeline and what you like to do/see:

1. If you head to St. Louis, the arch, Grant's Farm, and the Brewery Tour.

2. If you like rivers and seeing river traffic, stay at least one night at Tom Sawyer's RV Park in West Memphis, AR. You will be right on the Mississippi.

3. Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Smoky Mountains (it is the ultimate tourist trap).

4. Mount Rogers (highest mountain in Virginia).

Travel safe.

We just dis the Dragons Spine: route 16 in Marion, VA. what a beautiful twisty windy road with spectacular views. Definitely not a road for a motor coach, but the Jeep Wrangler ate it up and went back for more [ we enjoyed the 25 mikes so much that we turned around and drove it back to our starting point. Thanks everybody for your suggestions. We will head for PA on Saturday and back to Burlington VT on Sunday.

If you are looking for a place to stay on your way north, I can recommend the KOA in Gettysburg, or farther North, overnight <free> at the Mohegian Sun Casino in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Lot C is about the levelest, while Lot E is farthest out and quietest.
