Any good recommendations for routes westward from VA or NC to the National? Yeah, I know that I could take I-77, but what fun is that? I am thinking about taking VA 43 out of Altavista VA to US 60 out of Clifton Forge VA, thru the mountains to Charleston. Any comments or warnings about that route? I see a lot of little WVa towns along the way--charming or frustrating way-to-go?

Any suggestions are welcomed-I will be rolling out of Piedmont NC,:cool:
