I thought about skipping this year due to starting a new job last winter etc, but I need a trip and the 1200 needs broken in correctly.

The good thing about this trip is that, if you have to, you can camp the whole way along the parkway for around 15- 16 a night.

I made the trip last year for pretty cheap , I will definitely be doing it again next year . I have been many places all around the world and my favorite place to be is the Smokey Mountains

I enjoyed reading your RR. Its nice to hear about guys from my/our area going down there and listening to their experiences. So if you skipped the parkway on your way down and just rode it home how many days do you think it would take? I was thinking about running highway to the dragon and then hitting the parkway on the way home. Can it be done in 3 days?
My furthest trip ever was to Kentucky and back via the mountain roads of WV. 2 days total. Your inspiring me to venture further from my little circle in PA.
