Holey crapola . . . beautiful views and gain 10 pounds while consuming fine adult beverages! What a combination.

I'm not too familiar with the area. Is this a south to north drive that I might catch on my way to NASSM?

Rusty, it is north to south. End up about an hour south of Roanoke, Va. Interstate 81 will take you back north to Pa. to the nationals.
About a 95 mile ride.

This last summer, we got together with some other Kappa folks and traveled the Blue Ridge Parkway from end to end.

I was fairly familiar with the NC portion but had not experienced the northern sections in VA. I must say those were some of the most impressive views of the most picturesque valleys I could imagine. I highly recommend taking this trip!

I would love to tag along if I can work it out. Some depends on work schedule and some depends on when an annual pool tourney I recently qualified for is going to be (it's either that weekend are the previous one).

At this point, I'm going to say we will be joining you.....and that will actually be with 2 Solstices.

Yup. I'm aware of that, but I was planning to be in NJ several days before nationals. I'll have to think about this.
