My wife and I are driving from Ringgold, GA (15 minutes from Chattanooga) to Mt. Airy, NC. We'll be leaving sometime on Friday morning. We live 5 miles off I-75 (if we want a meeting point). I-75 is the major north to south route through the state of Georgia.
The route we'll be taking is north out of Ringgold, GA on I-75 to Chattanooga, TN, continuing on I-75 to Knoxville, TN, taking I-81 to the Bristol, VA/Tri-Cities area, and then I-77 south toward Charlotte, NC.
If anyone sees an opportunity to caravan this route...we'll try to work it out.
This will be about a 6 hour drive.
