safety and other questions

Elmhurst, NY

#1 May 4, 2011
Hi all, we're from NYC and will be taking a tour of some the cities in the VA/SC/NC area with a view to possibly moving later on.

Next week we'll be driving from NYC to Front Royal VA, then taking a day on the Skyline Drive to Charlottsville. We then figure a day to Galax and another to Asheville. We plan to stay there a few days and then move on to some other cities/towns.

Since I'm a paranoid New Yorker (lol) we're wondering what the car safety situation is on the BRP. Because we'll be on a two week trip and will have a lot of stuff with us, I'm more worried than usual about car breakins, especially with out of state plates. Is it safe to leave the car to do some trail walking along the way?

And what is the traffic like this time of year?
