    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.

    That's a long trip, no doubt, and taking the "scenic" route will certainly add some time to your journey. Instead of following the I-95 corridor via Washington and Richmond, you might want to take I-66 from DC over toward I-81. One option, from there, would be to head up to Shenandoah National Park and drive part or all if its Skyline Drive (some nice lodges and campgrounds up there, too). This precedes the start of the Blue Ridge Parkway and is an equally pretty drive (depending on when you're going, it can also get a bit slow with traffic!). Another option might be to cut over to Asheville from Greensboro, NC, and spend a night or two there. This will put you close to the Smoky Mountains and within easy range of some nice day hikes and drives (such as Linn Cove Viaduct on Grandfather Mountain). From Asheville, it's not too far to get back on I-85 and truck it down to the Panhandle via Atlanta.
