NY to Pensacola & back 3/11-3/18. Route suggestions appreciated.

Hello all,

I was going to start a thread in Trip Planning, but was hoping to get some more local knowledge by posting here in regionals.

I Will be riding my 990 Adv from NY to Pensacola and back, leaving NY on 3/11/15. My intention is to take I-81 out of Scranton, PA. For the first leg of the trip, I plan to stay on 81 until the temps warm up, I'm hoping somewhere near the MD/VA border. After that, I would not mind getting off the highway and taking some more interesting local roads, preferably remaining somewhat parallel to I-81. My thought process is that that way, I can jump back on the interstate if the weather turns bad on me, make some progress southward, and hopefully get ahead of it a bit.

Any roads, routes, or tracks you folks local to the area/ areas may be able to suggest or supply, would be greatly appreciated.

I will have pavement oriented tires on the bike, so I am not really interested in any unmaintained roads at this time. Mainly pavement, paved back roads, and maintained dirt roads would be the preference.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated. TIA.

This is a partial route through the Smokey Mtns. that I put together just from looking at google maps.
