Take it to a truck stop and weigh it.

Yep. Most truck stops have scales. It's about 10 or 15 bucks to weigh. But it could be useful info.

The last time I used a CAT scale they were 9.00 (that was in late 2013), probably gone up a dollar or two since then.

I prefer a CAT scale, their accuracy is guaranteed.

Any Pilot/Flying J/TA/Petro/Love's will have one (look for the big yellow overhead sign).

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.
