I stopped in Roxboro to check the weather on my phone and it didnt show any rain or clouds but heading west on 158 and the skies were getting darker by the mile my phone's weather app sucks...

Learned that years ago when they screwed up my dirt riding plans at least half the time.
Was going to go meet an old high school friend up in Galax, VA today, but he called from Statesville, NC and said it was pouring the whole way. Didn't see any rain here other than a few sprinkles around 6:30, but we did bail out of our ride up on the north side of Range Road earlier than I was wanting to. The sky didn't look good for a ride to Apex from there.

I've got several different weather apps on my phone: NOAA, WRAL, TWN, Accuweather and at least one other. They ALWAYS disagree with each other and none is more accurate than any of the others. It's a pure coin flip most of the time.

sorry about the inverted image. Phone had a mind of it's own. And I hope the new tag isn't outside the map, I really don't know how to get back there myself

Hi all, soon as I get my bike back from the shop I think I'll join in. But even if I were to, I can't get to the new tag's location any time soon (it is kinda out of the triangle range). That is going to be a full day for me and my weekends right now are restricted to betweeners - between tasks that Mrs. Drummer wants done.
