    Early April ?

    Friends are going to NC (Boone) for a week early April and my wife and I are considering joining them. Thought occured to ride the RT leading them in their car.
    Wonder if someone could point me to a forecasting service for my route - it is probably a bit dicey for the northern part of the route and perhaps the mountain sections.

    Anxious to get riding !! Long Winter

    Weather Underground

    Go to Weather Underground: http://www.wunderground.com/

    Click on trip planner and then put in waypoints along the route and the date.

    This is a very useful feature for planning.

    April

    Thanks, that is excellent resource.
    I think I can conclude that the chances are good it would be unwise ....

    Probably unwise

    Nice to dream about riding in early April, even if the chances are it won't happen. I was threatening to ride to Gimli Manitoba at the end of April and just about everyone has told me I'm an idiot. Finally caved and booked on Air Canada. Sigh.

    How about end of April

    Hi ya Jim, Neil Here
    If your really chomping at the bitt to get out and tour, why don't you join me and ride along to Georgia. May 1-3 is the BMW Owners of Georgia Rally. I'm turning it into a two week scoot as I want to play in the Mountains around Tenn and NC like I was a teenager again. All of my Fave roads are down there. Georgia has a lot of neat twisties too in the Northern part and, thats were the rally is. There is a great Bikers Camp in Suches Georgia. Two Wheels Only is it's name. It's right in the middle of the great rides of Georgia.
    Give it some thought and we can talk about it at the meet and greet in MArch.

    Careful in the Mountains

    From the Route 77 interchange to Boone, the Blue Ridge is constantly rising oin elevation. I high sided in a snow storm up there the first weekend in May about 10 years ago. I was near Blowing Rock.
