    Default Anyone know about the roads from ATL?

    I am planning to bring the family, but now it is 7 and we have a Chrysler minivan - not a 4WD. We are likely to leave after 5PM. Black ice is a huge problem already tonight locally. I really don't want to risk problems, even if I'm bringing Saturday breakfast.

    So, any locals up there knowing anything about road conditions in NoGa and between Blue Ridge and Murphy?

    OB

    Why dont you go up 985 when it then turns into US23 and on to 441. its all main roads that way. I talked to a woman in bryson city and she said the roads were fine. I'm leaving around noon tomorrow and don't expect any problems.

    OB, I drove through Atlanta during rush hour Thursday night (also in a minivan) and hit a little patchy ice in the far left hand lane of I-85. The right hand lanes were clear. Once I got on I-985 and 441 the road was clear to Franklin. Since it supposed to warm up today, I don't anticipate any problems from here to NOC. Just take care on rt 74 from near Bryson City to NOC and you should be fine.

    Oops, I see you're coming from the the side. Stay to the right on the main highways and keep it slow on 74 and you should be fine

    Gwiz, I didn't see your name so you won't have a printed name tag however, I will have some blanks and a marker. You're welcome to have one. Otherwise there is no formal registration. Come on down and check it out.

    Waiting on the Lady Bug and will be there with 5 kids this year. We are leaving a bit reluctantly - just learned one of her cats has cancer and isn't likely to be with us very much longer. Bringing the usual blueberry and pancake fare, tangerines, snacks and sodas.

    I had an absolutely wonderful time. Such a great bunch of people. Having only been once before in 2009 and not really knowing anyone except Cuffs and who doesn't know Cuffs, I was made to feel very welcome and a part of the group. I enjoyed meeting and talking with so many. Thanks everyone.
    I am not young enough to know everything.

    I hate to say it, but that was better than Doc's hat last year.

    Good to meet you, Sierra Echo!
