Hello all.. new member first post. Ive done some 1 to 2 night trips locally but now i want to do 2 or 3 weeks on the road. I bought some maps and put together a loop but it ended up being 2100 250-300 miles per week thats a long time, not so sure im willing to solo  all that.
So im looking for 700 or so mile loop starting and ending in or around the Charleston wv area.
Plenty of back roads around and i have a preliminary rout to do a section of the blue ridge (north to south) im just worried about logging and coal trucks, those guys and girls like to carry their speed on hills, and alot of roads have crumbling or no sholders at all.
Since im not willing to drive the rout first id love to here any suggestions or see what ya'll have to say.
I have lived here in central wv all my life, something like 45 years. Have been road biking for the last 10 at around 1000 to 2000 miles per year and  the only touring folks i know are the LBS owner and his daughter.
Thanks and stay safe, jim
