Couldn't find one of these threads here so I am starting one. Loaded up the family and took the Blue Ridge Parkway from Asheville to the Heintooga Ridge Road loop, then through Great Smokey Mountain National Park and into Gatlinburg. I don't think the kids know how spoiled they were traveling through this landscape. Saw a few elk which is a big deal for this southern flat lander, and got to use the CDL when I pulled off the road to let a horse trailer go by and felt the rear passenger wheel slip into a deep rut. No drama, the front wheels pulled the rear right out.
