    Hello
    I am on a 3 month, cross country road trip, starting August 1st, '20
    Starting southeast, going North, then cross country to see the Westside.
    I am set up to live in my vehicle.
    Stay off the interstate and out of big cities.
    I'll take the road less traveled, scenic, back and dirt roads !!
    I'll have my Mtn bike and backpack.
    Hoping others will be in touch to let me know about your favorite hike or bike, and hopefully join along !!
    Meet for a bite and beverage.
    Please do be in touch.
    Thank You.

    Not only avoid the big cities but also avoid all the sprawling suburbs as well. This will help you avoid the Coronavirus hot spots entirely along with other bugaboos like heavy traffic and road construction. Although rural back roads and two laned state and US routes might also have their road construction issues but without the heavy traffic. I would be careful about how far north you want to venture. I wouldn’t go any further north than the Ohio River if I were you.

    Be sure to travel through McDowell County West Virginia which is in the southern most part of the state. From what I have seen in numerous videos, it is very mountainous with little level land heavily forested with numerous fast flowing streams going through that county. US Highway Route 52 is the primary road for McDowell County. Other neighboring counties have similar rugged topography. Southern West Virginia is very poor economically but it’s scenery is very beautiful.

    Very exciting. Looking forward to your posts.
    I'm not too familiar with southeast but once you get to Nebraska and points west I could have some ideas.
