I’ve not done that road. I’ll hit it this weekend when I take my daughter for a run up to the snake/shady valley TNThe high point of the Blue Ridge Parkway is just over 6000' (Richland Balsam at mile post 431). I believe the best road up and over a tall mountain in the Smokies is NC261/TN143 over Roan Mt. The high point of this route is "only" 5500' at Carver's Gap and the Appalachian Trail but the views are awesome and the road is in great shape and very twisty. It also does not get that much traffic compared to US441 over the mountains in the Smokey Mt. NP (Clingman's Dome) which is very busy and very slow going.
I got rossacia (SP) on my face, comes and goes. I have a harder time tanning than before, of course, my dermatologist says any tan is bad. I used to have two good nerves, now just one (and it's easily stepped on ).Not kidding, it took years before it stopped itching on the original patch. Once in awhile it will still itch, and it's been 22 years now. It permanently damages the nerve endings. While most who get it get it once and done, it can re-occur. Any age. It can be brought on by exposure to someone contagious with chicken pox or shingles, and can be self-induced by extreme stress. In my case, I was also working a couple days in an elementary school that had a chicken pox outbreak, the work was very stressful, and my wife had a death in her immediate family. Triple whammy.

I have and continue to if I'm not careful. Hit me at 3am while stationed at RAF Chicksands in England. Couldn't even stand for a bed sheet to lay on top of the big toe of my right foot. Got my butt over to see a doctor ASAP around 7:30 am. Couple of pills and it was gone.You should try gout
Altoona Pa. is another outlet for Norfolk Southern shops. I have a friend Dan who has worked there maybe 20 years, locomotive electrician. Damn good job. But they cut a couple hundred jobs a year or 2 ago, and I don't know if he had to transfer, took retirement, or what?That's a Norfolk Southern train. Those car trains pass through Roanoke all the time (without incident). Too bad Roanoke didn't seem to care about keeping NS here --they're moving out of state. This railroad built Roanoke
Another notch in the belt of liberal local governments
