    That's a pretty twisty road up in the mountains. Honestly, I think you might lose your mind. That said, you could plan it around some of the other state highways and local byways in the NC/VA area, so you're not always stuck behind a line of other RVs. That way you get to hit some of the Blue Ridge Parkway, but not feel locked into doing the whole thing.

    You can ride the Parkway for a total of 469 miles as it rolls from Virginia in the north to North Carolina in the south. It combines Shenandoah's snaking Skyline Drive and ends just outside of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

    It appears though you may use campfires while staying in the Parkway, though the National Park Service is prohibiting firewood brought in from other states, including: Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Ohio, Ontario, Pennsylvania, Quebec, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. This is to prevent the spread of destructive insects known to be in wood from those areas.
