I`m seeing a not so great weather forecast for the Robbinsville area this weekend!
90% chance of rain Saturday
80% chance on Sunday
Can anyone confirm this?

Accuweather indicates 61% for Saturday looking to be more PM than AM. Sunday 35% AM. Just cloudy for PM.

I have only come here seeking knowledge
Things they would not teach me of in college...

Called Two Wheel Inn and also looked on the National weather service website and both are saying only 30% chance of rain on Sat & Sun...the 90/80% forecast was from the Weather Channel. Think I will stop relying on the Weather Channel for my weather forecasts! Not the first time they have been way off base on their weather predictions!

I have used every weather program over the decades and Weather Underground is the best. Unlike Weather Channel and the rest they have Independent stations in every little town, often multiple stations do you alwars get accurate weather wherever you are. Their Doppler is spot on also, can't say that about NOAA and company.
Also if for whatever reason the current conditions are incorrect you can report it on the current page.
Its one of few apps that I pay to get ad free.

Basically, expect delays and pack the patience.


Easy straight shot today. Left at 6:20 AM, lunch and gas stops, arrived at 4:30 in Robbinsville. Typical speed about 75-80.

A friend left this afternoon and reports cruising through Florida at about 90 most of the way.

See you all in the next few days!

We are about 100 miles west of Memphis tonight. We were hoping to get further today but it took us 90 minutes to get 40 miles through the Dallas area this morning, then we had some route difficulty that took us the long way around via a tollway in Choctaw country.. We then strafed the Talimena Scenic Byway, virtually had the place to ourselfes for 50 miles. The only thing we had to pass was a small group of 3 Can-Am Spiders. Seen maybe a half dozen other cars on the road. It was great!

I will still arrive tomorrow but it's going to be late afternoon. Charlie Fogg is staying in Robbinsville tomorrow before coming in Thursday morning.

See you all soon!

Freedom is the miles I'm rollin' on!
