Sorry for no reply, but the sh*t hit the fan at my household. I'll have to make this brief, take the parkway back north. Get off at Rt. 60 west to Beuna Vista and keep heading west on 60. Pass over top of I-81 and you'll come to a shopping district in Lexington with a Taco Bell on the right. You'll pick up the signs for Rt 11 north right after Taco Bell. Keep on Rt 11 north and on the outskirts of Lexington you'll pass over I-64. Take a left on Rt. 39 which is the next light. Rt 39 is a hoot and will take you into WVa. From there it's your pick on which route to head north (220, 92 etc.) Not as familiar with the WVa. section.
I'm assuming you know how to get back to the parkway from Hotel Roanoke.
Rt 60 will be about 35-40 mi up the parkway and is a hoot coming off the parkway. Look out for radar on the parkway anytime the speed limit drops to 35mph especially around Peaks of Otter (MM 185). Seems there is a full time radar trap on the north end of that 35 mph zone. I'll pm my cell.
