And, he's off! Al Roker has officially kicked off Rokerthon 2 — and the 2015 edition is rather ambitious with the Today weatherman set to touch down in all 50 states over the course of one week. After boarding a flight for Hawaii on Thursday (Nov. 5), Al will attempt to forecast the weather all across our great land. "In order to pull this off, I'll need to take advantage of many modes of transportation — planes, trains, automobiles, boats ... maybe even a horse?" he said. He'll travel around the country and touch down back in NYC next Friday, Nov. 13. Before he goes, he has Bravo's own on his side — including Southern Charm pals Cameran Eubanks and Shep Rose, Manzod with Children's Caroline and Albie Manzo, and Top Chef's Richard Blais — as he attempts to make some history. They even offer some advice. "I mean Al, be careful — pack a toothbrush, an extra pair of running shoes, and some magazines," Richard said. "And please, Al, bring some snacks."
