Parking and info for Waynesboro, VA area

Can any fellow inmates help a Yankee out? I am headed to March Moto Madness in 2 weeks...trucking the old 640 from New England to Waynesboro, VA (or someplace thereabouts), and then hoping to unload and ride the bike south on or along the Blue Ridge Parkway to Tellico Plains, TN for the rally, then do it in reverse.

Any recommendations on someplace to park the truck for a week? Any inmates in the area who could let me park at their place for a week? Any recommendations on roads/routes I should hit? I see on the real time road closures site for BRP that quite a bit (south of Waynesboro, and the last 70 miles to Cherokee for sure) of the Parkway is closed right now...is this snow and ice? Does it usually clear up and reopen by the end of March?

Any help and advice greatly appreciated

Last year at MMM it snowed on us on the way out and even one day of the event at elevation. On the way down, we had planned on picking up the Trans Eastern Trail in Hot Springs, but had to slab around for about 75 miles to get out of the snow pack.

Let's hope for none of that this year...I'm doing this for a chance to ride my bike away from the 3ft of snow we have up here

The BRP around Pisgah (south of Asheville and what I argue is the most beautiful part of the whole parkway) can be real hit or miss until mid April. There are lots of alternate routes that are amazing as well. I'll PM you with some ideas shortly.
