I want to thank everyone for all the help you've supplied me thus far! I have another question: we'll be driving from Columbus (Ohio) and want to stop and spend the night somewhere about halfway (or a little more than halfway) down to HHI. Any suggestions? What's this "Blue Ridge Parkway"...we love driving through the mountains but I wasn't sure if the Blue Ridge Parkway was part of the trip down or if it would be too out of the way.
I was kind of looking at Mt. Airy, NC perhaps. Or Asheville (but it seems more out of the way).
