You will enjoy that Skyline Drive ride, although time consuming. Even at the slow speed, watch out for the deer and bear. I've even came upon Timber Rattlers coiled up in the road, soaking up the sun.
I remember going there as a young child and years and years later, my wife, kids and myself were going through the state and went up there. After that it became a vacation spot. Now we live close enough so we can go up to Big Meadows in an hour and my daughter has introduced her hubby to the Drive. He grew up here in the Shenandoah Valley, and had never been there. My grandaughter is 4 and she is in love with going up there to watch the deer and see the sights from the overlooks too.
And, of course, enjoy your new toys!
