Good Sam Trip Planning is giving me directions to travel from Black Mountain, North Carolina via route 9 to US 64 and then east on US 64 to Lake Lure where I will again pick up route 9 to Mill Spring which is a junction at route 108 which will connect to US 74 and then a few miles west to I-26.

I suspect that routes 9 and 108 will be an interesting drive I am just wondering if our Journey 36G with toad will be compatible with these roads? Any one driven this route?

Unless you're just interested in seeing the rural areas of NC via country roads, I'd suggest just taking I-40 west to I-26 at Asheville and then south on I-26 from there. The mileage is 38 miles via Rt 9 and is 62 miles via I40/I-26.

Hi: i concur with Hitchhiker about staying on I40 and on to I26. i can save 45 miles by staying on a nc route from greeneville,tn to ashville,nc. i prefer a 4 lane interstate to a narrow state road,farther but a lot safer. last time i used the two lane i got blown over by an 18 whlr. into a guard rail. bark marks are better than a ripped off mirror and coach side.
safest on travels.

I don't know the beginning of the trip or the destination, but..........if you want a slow trip and narrow roads, go with the trip planner. I was born an raised in the area. I would go back from I-40 W of Asheville and take I-26 south to whatever you're distination is. Even thou I live in AR now, I always go home to the Smokies............
