Red face Trips from Western North Carolina

Got about a week this summer and want to take a 6 - 7 day camping trip on my 2011 V Strom 650. Had considered thee Natchez Trace but having second thoughts about the heat in July. Maybe s destination North or east, travel 300 - 400 miles a day with flexibilty. Will just be me and the. Strom. Suggestions or ideas would ideally be appreciated.

Thanks and others aew welcome to join. Will be laid back and hopefully fun. I pretty to hear from some of you folks. Have gotten great advice here so far so counting on it again!

It will definitely be hot. The Trace has lots of shade trees, but camping in July will be miserable IMO.

So did you make the trip on the Natchez Trace? I did it in early June was lots of fun, but didn't make it all the way to the end. We ended up going to Vicksburg and never returned to the Trace. I was just curious how the weather was in July.
