hello there! new to the board and new to the Roo this year
we're from nyc but will be flying to Atlanta and renting an RV from there. Then we have almost 3 full days to do some serious RV roadtripping in the south before making our way up to Bonnaroo - can't wait!
Anyone have any recommendations along the way? Looking to be blown away by some beautiful, serene outdoorsy landscapes.. but any recommendations will do! thank you bunches!
We come from Fort Valley, Virginia. No, it is not a military installation. It is a mountain valley in the Massanutten Mountain of Virginia. Geologically it is ringed by high mountain ridges, and thus called a "fort" by early settlers. The mountain is thick oak-hickory forest and is in the George Washington National Forest, Lee District.
A ten hour drive from this idyllic and spiritual landscape will put us in line to wait several hours before entering another spiritual dimension; a tribal gathering that reeks of humanity in close quarters.
