Virginia usually gets a lot of rain in April.

What about May, like on the Memorial Day weekend?
Holiday weekends are especially tough for me. I can do any day during the week (the roads are likely less crowded at that time too).

Agree with bypassing April....maybe late April, but that place will be packed Memorial day weekend, so we need to avoid it. We had to pull off on our last trip and wait 10 min just to get a good enough distance from other drivers on the way back to make it fun......minivans going the speed limit should be outlawed on that road. just sayin

I vote middle of the week and we all just take a day off

I'm thinking of hitting it up the last week of April. I think the holiday week would be a shit show to be honest and I'd rather have less crowds. If I'm going I'm staying overnight possibly for a couple days due to the distance. It's almost a 12 hour drive for me....

I'm considering taking the family down the day before and getting a cabin near the lake...it's a state park, so pretty cool area.

Trust me, weekdays are the best days for driving the more known/publicized roads (like botd). I did over 5000 miles last season driving the mountain roads in VA/WV/KY/NC/SC/TN. .
man, must have been awesome with fewer people on the road due to COVID

We can always send two separate groups if we end up with a lot of cars. The lot at the brewery/food truck has plenty of space for a group photo.

Spreading out and making a running order worked out great last time so everyone could safely run their own pace.

I’ll have to sit down with my wife and see when will work for me. She’s the one who stays on top of family events and appointments.
