Maybe ask a third person
No need. As you say - you're still confused. It's quite OK - and a regular thing for you.
Much the same confusion happens in many of your other posts regularly.
If you have a mental cap - as you say you do, we all understand and take pity.
Yeah I know, I am confused about this reaction as well. Says it all basically. I know enough about you, your past here, your changing names, your insults via PM through other names etc. It's very obvious and the fun thing is that you seem to be bothered with things that I don't understand. Obviously you know you are wrong about the Charleston thing here, and you are not man enough to admit you just give shitty advice. Best to take pity for yourself, as pretending to be a person which you are not is the worst that a selfrespecting middle aged man can do in my humble opinion

I think the Smoky Mountains and/or Blue Ridge Parkway are not recommended in winter, but maybe people who actually drove that part in winter might now better.
Its closed during that period. Or at least the full length of it is. You can get to Ashville at the start and Ashville is a really nice place in winter with snow. Baltimore house has big Christmas lights that people from all over the south drive to look at.
Yes, I'm on about Charleston - West Virginia, but left out the bit that I've done both and the one in SC is on the beach - a pretty shoddy
beach at that, with some smelly factories close-by too.
It's the Charleston in WV that I'm on about - with the interesting 'Old' bits.
There are a lot better choices in the Appalachians than Charleston WV and thats quite a ways off his route.
Saying Charleston SC beaches are pretty shoddy is like saying Londons beaches are pretty shoddy. Its an estuary! but go to many of the little gems dotted along that coast and you'll find beautiful beaches, you just have to know where to look. Amelia Island, Cumberland Island, Jekyll Island, Hilton head, Myrtle beach, there's dozens of them. In winter time though my favorite is anywhere along Long Island NY. Its deserted and really pretty with snow on the beach!
Utrecht and flyingbob - just a gentle reminder... You don't have to agree with each other. But, the original poster came here for advice and not bickering. Please keep that in mind. Thank you.
Isa now returns this thread to it's originally scheduled topic.
Sorry that I can't be helpful as I've not done the Florida to New York (or vise versa) route. Enjoy the planning and the trip - it sound like fun!
