Maps Loops and Landmarks

I didn't want to clutter the other thread, so Rob and I can discuss some map routes for his trip next year.
Rob,
Concerning the trip from Lake George to Tellico Plains, lets discuss some points of interest you want to hit on your trip. This will help me place a route with purpose since there are hundreds of roads you could take to get you from A to B.

I have been riding down that way for a few years now, a couple of stretches that I like are:
The crows nest, NY, (route 97 from Hancock to Port Jervis.
The Delaware Water Gap, boarder of NY and NJ along the Delaware River. (route 209)
From that point I open, I tend to follow 209 to 147 cross the river and then head toward Carlisle, PA and call it a day.
I would like to investigate a better route from the Delaware Water Gap to somewhere near Carlisle. I picked Carlisle because there a lot of hotels (cheap) and places to grab some food, gas and anything else you need.

From there the choice of roads gets much better. My general direction is south and west, but try to get myself close to Princeton, WV for the night again plenty of hotels and food choices.
I like the mountain roads just east of there US route 52, the 61 614 ..... and head toward Back of the Dragon (rt. 16 Tazewell to Marion, VA. There are so many roads in this area I would stay in the general area again for a second night.... There is US rt 421, parts of 91, 133 really to many to list. Then from there head south to Maggie Valley via 352, 212 209 then on US 19. I would then stay a night in Maggie Valley. That is about 50 miles of so from Deal's Gap.... so a couple days there and then head north again....... there is Little Switzerland off the BRP.
I also just scratch the surface of some roads in eastern Kentucky ........ so some investigation is needed for the return loop.

3 files attached in a zip
KML you can drop in google earth
GPX and GDB would need software from Garmin or something along those lines.

Rob,
This was just a first pass, need to refine some areas, i used the Blue Ridge Parkway to save time since I had the route from a previous trip, but if you tell me where you want to be i can get you there.
The start of the route is as you suggested, then I deviated slightly from 147.

Looks like one hell of a road trip, can but only dream from this side of the pond. I suppose I do have the delights, and diversity, of Europe at my disposal as compensation.

Google Maps version of your route, might make it easier for others to view.

Bumpkin,
Thank you the link, but might I ask how you did that? I was trying last night, and could figure out how to get it published to Google Maps. I'd rather just show a link for Rob to comment on.
OR I can keep posting the zip file as I change it, and you can provide the link to Google....hahaha.
Thank you
RB

EDIT: Scratch that, I realize the route you posted only used the Waypoints, and doesn't actually stick to the route. Thanks for the help, I bet there is a way for me to publish using G-Maps.

I think it would be better for more people to comment, especially if they are familiar with certain areas.
I would love to see this route become and actual motorcyclist bucket list route.

For me, one of the goals is to keep it as all, or mostly surface roads. Trying to touch as many twisties and/or scenic routes as possible. Realistically this will be somewhat of a 2500 to 3000 mile road trip, and for many a week to complete, with great stopping points along the way.
