Staying away from interstates is sure paying off with scenery and roads made for a NASCAR racer. Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia and West Virginia all have great roads, made for bikes and sporty cars, intense Spring smells, scenery and since it’s before Memorial Day peaceful driving.

I feel like I am living the 2002 philosophical travel memoir by Neil Peart, Ghost Rider. I get why he kept going out for his rides.
Everyday the roads I travel are stunning and beautiful. Perfect for a bike or car. However, this day despite what I was seeing my drive felt labored. I knew at some point on this trip my head would give in to what I have left behind.

I actually felt like I was on a vacation of sorts and just had fun riding through the Cascades in my car. Beautiful mountainous roads, ones that a biker would die for really. One area I wanted to go was blocked by snow but I did get some altitude at this time of year.
