Subject: BS: Traveling to KY, SC
I'm leaving on Friday, Oct 10, for Kentucky. I have a motel room reserved for Fri thru Sun. night in the town of London. I'll take in the mountain crafts show in Berea on Sat., and the Renfro Valley Barn Dance that night. That leaves Sunday open. Does anyone have any suggestions for what I can do or see in Eastern Kentucky in the vicinity of I-75 between Lexington and the KY/TN border?
On Monday, I'm heading to Asheville, NC to visit friends. I'll have plenty to do there.
Then on Thurs. I'll be visiting my younger brother and Mom in Clover, SC, in the northern part of the state near Charlotte, NC. I need some hints: what can I do for fun there? My mom is 80 and can't walk much without resting. I've seen the King's Mt. battlefield and the restored plantation that served as Mel Gibson's home in "The Patriot",
and the AAA guidebook doesn't have a lot of hints, so if anyone lives in the NW corner of the state, or has been there, what can I do for sightseeing? Thanks for your help.
On my way back, I'm taking the interstate as far as Parkersburg, WV, then I thought I'd follow the Ohio River up to Pa before returning to NJ. My map shows roads in OH and WV that follow the river. Which route is better?
Don't bother answering this after Thurs. evening, Oct 9, 'cause I'll be on the road.
