Travel to Virginia/West Virginia

I am thinking of going to Blacksburg, VA the week of August 10 to see my nephew that is a grad student at VT. I would think the riding in the region is fantastic, but my concern is if there is crazy much traffic. Is the traffic there a legitimate concern? How about weather and temps? I have been in Appalachia region further south, but never in August.

Re: Travel to Virginia/West Virginia

Fair amount of truck traffic on I81. Other than that you are in the country. Blue Ridge Parkway is just over through beautiful Floyd county. Can be warm in the days but generally cool, low 60's high 50's at night.
