we are planning to leave here around 5 am. I think it's something like a 4-4.5 hour drive from here so hopefully get there 9:30-10:00

How are ya'll coming?

I assume 64 to x 119 (29) then south on 29?

You could always go I-64 to x99 (va 250), then take the blueridge pkway down to 56 at Montebello (27.2 miles), then down 56 to 151 to Perkins Mill... It'd give ya a little extra ride, but it's a shame to come so far and not. Or, you could go home via 56 - brpkwy. Incase y'all didn't think of it or realize.

Well we do shoe creek in one day. Never been to potts. Potts is a little more for the bigger rigs as shoe creek is more or less just a little rocky trail.

Shoe creek is a good place to camp if you're camping. Other than that its about 20-30 mins from civilization and its still a little hick town.

Potts they say if you have a decent rig you should be fine. I've never been there only heard stories and I wont be going there anytime soon because im not up for it

And that was done on the main trail not on a bypass, we did skip a little bypass spot cuz we didn't wanna try to go down it with how it looked, woulda been better going up than down so we just passed it.

It was a little cold but it was fun, and for it being only a 7 mile trail it was pretty challenging, took us almost 4 hrs from start to finish

I am a local to that area. It is a really sweet spot to ride and since there is no longer a camp jeep in lovingston it would be alot of fun. I will get a good crowd going for the trip as for as locals. The trail is as difficult as you make it, but stock vehicles are def. capable. Camping is apparently pretty nice up there as well.
