We plan to view in our backyard. We are projected to be at 95%.

We are going to a Farmers Market in Anderson, SC, but we probably won't have the HC with us. We will be just back from a 9-day trip, then 1 day home, then headed to SC to stay at HoJo

Salem, Oregon. The capitol of Oregon, close to middle of total path. We are in wine country. Some wineries are have eclipse parties. I'm not sure I would like wine that early in the morning.

Eclipse? I don't remember a camper by that name....

We will be watching from Salem Oregon. Our local baseball team (Hillsboro Hops) is playing the Salem Volcanos that is hosting the game during the eclipse (Eclipsefest).

Cool Eclipse camping in Missouri

For those planning a last minute trip to MO, the state parks in the path of totality are requiring a 3 night reservation (unless you managed to get yours in last winter!). The St Joseph area is projecting an extra 500,000 visitors and many farmers are renting out space for campers. We made reservations last winter to stop on the way to Wyoming, and are hoping to get there before traffic is "totally" insane.

St Joseph area is the closest intercept for me. 5 hour drive. Hmmmmm.

I assume you mean five hours under normal conditions. Even though I am arriving at my site (in the totality) the day before, and leaving the day after, I am starting to become rather concerned about the mania and the borderline lunacy that seems to be developing. Your five-hour drive might take eight or nine hours.

While it would be super cool to see in person, too much hassle for us. Pretty sure there will be lots of photos.

The closest point for us would be southern Illinois - 930 miles away. Oh well, there's always April of 2024, and it will go right over our house!

There are also plenty of photos of super-models, but its not the same as dating one (which I hear can also be too much hassle)

I have been told that being in a total solar eclipse is a quasi-religious experience for many (and that a partial eclipse is nothing special). This is the best opportunity in my lifetime to find out.
