RE: 441

Most years there is no problem, but the typical weather for the area is highly variable. Just watch the conditions the week of your trip. It is extremely rare for an extended forecast to be useful to make that drive. This year has been much warmer and much dryer than normal. If the current pattern does not change, you are just as likely to get road closures due to fire and smoke as weather. The US Forest Service has already moved a 'Sky Crane' fire fighting helicopter into the Macon County NC airport in anticipation of a bad fire season. 2016 was the year that Gatlinburg came very close to being being totally lost, and this years fire conditions for the area are just as bad or worse in the area.

RE: I-26 and I-40 Asheville questions.

A landslide has 74W closed. They are saying Wednesday to re-open...but that has changed from Monday and so on. Better check that it's open when you go, if you decide on that way. I am heading that way Friday to the Tail of the Dragon. I know that's not the route you asked about, just a heads up. thank you for that heads up. approx what area is that? i checked on nc dot for closures and couldn't find it. The slides were in Swain County through the Nantahala Gorge. The Nantahala Outdoor Center was unreachable and cancelled all Nantahala River excursions earlier this week, but now have re-opened partial hours. The NCDOT is still working the slide areas restoring guard rails and other repairs so there will be some some delay through the gorge. Since this is Labor Day weekend, the NCDOT made a MAJOR effort to re-open the road for all the river outfitters in the gorge. This is the area that was hit by very large wildfires in November 2016.

RE: New GPS needed

if we used a dedicated tablet, would the gps function use gps data directly or cell phone signals? MAYBE -- it will depend on the tablet - not all tablet GPS capabilities are the same. Look very closely at the specs before you select a tablet. I have successfully used a Asus and a Samsung tablet (both WiFi only) as gps. As long as I kept the maps updated, it worked very well.

RE: What is your favorite COE CG in Georgia

It is not a COE Campground but a Hart State Park on Lake Hartwell has always been on our best liked -- but we only go in the off season.

RE: "How did we do" ...everybody wants a survey

Hear a guy on the radio... He was a tourist in Tokyo and randomly picked a restaurant for a quick bite. Five minutes after he left he got a text asking for a review. Never researched the restaurant and payed cash so how did they know he was there. Now days, a lot of people have their wifi on all the time so his phone may have talked with the wifi network at the restaurant. Just a thought. Does not matter if WiFi was turned on or not. If your phone was on, you will be tracked by Google, Apple, Facebook or someone else and your location will be sold by them. Just about every app that is installed will have a 'use location' prompt. Even if you disallow use of location when you install the app, it can get enabled on an update. Updates to operating system files are very good at hiding the 'you approve us to ...' text in the installation/update process.
