Rain on Saturday

I just checked the 10-day weather forecast and they are saying that there is a 60% chance of showers in Blairsville for next Saturday. Make sure you bring rain gear. Riding wet sucks.

my weather channel link on my iphone 10 day out says 50% chance, and yes riding wet sucks, and you know how those 10 day foracasts can be... so lets all hope that the nice weather they are projecting carries through to sunday

Mike the owner said the local foracast is saying decent weather for the next week comeing up one can only hope

Around here, the only things you can be sure of are:
- The forecast will change.
- Whatever they forecast that far out is the one thing you will NOT see on that day.

Any forcast that's over 48 hours is a SWAG....

Maybe it will snow, that will teach you for going without me.

I wish everyone a safe and fun trip, just kidding about the snow.

Now the long term weather forcast calls for rain on Friday night in Blairsville!

Don't hold your breath, the forcast willl change again!

Let's see, where did I put that rain gear?

Should I wear my 1/2 helmet or full face?

Do I take a fleece jacket in case it gets cold or relay on the bikes heaters?

Tennis shoes or black boots?

Too many questions!

I packed the bike up this morning because I am leaving right from work. I think I took all of those things you mentioned plus more then I will ever need. This will be a good test for me. I have never been on a trip this long, either in time or miles. Dave and Denise are taking me to the Dragon on the way to Blairsville as well. Do you know how much work is going to get done today? NONE!!!
