I've got place in Topton/Nantahala (South of MV) and in Grant/Valkaria (south of CB)
I like to take 441 south thru Clayton Ga to the Ga route 17 bypass at Toccoa, take 17 south to Wrens Ga. At Wrens, Go south on US 1 to Baxley Ga.
At Baxley, take Ga 15 south till it runs back into US 1. (By using 15, you avoid all the traffic lights and congestion of Waycross). Continue south on US 1 to 295 at Jacksonville. From there I just use I 95, but you can figure out other options.
From Topton/Nantahala to the Florida line is about 400 mi. I've ridden it on bikes and car/pickup. It's my favorite way to go, assuming there's no unusual problems on the way.
