I am planning to head north from New Orleans to Natchez, take the Natchez Trace, peel off just before Nashville and head east to Asheville (NC) and then up NE from there to DC area.
Anybody have experience with cycling that part of the US? Roads that should be avoided or sought after in those general areas? Going to be tent camping, but travelling very light (no side paniers).
