The parks in the Land between the Lakes of western Kentucky have been filling up with reservations since the path was first publicized.

Turn around... 1983 is calling -- feathered hair, backlighting and lots of wind...

Id love to see a total eclipse but this one is too far away.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

You should probably be putting prices on camp spots.

I started looking this fall after hearing about it. Being from CA, we looked all over Oregon for camp spots. The RV parks are completely booked, as are the public sites.

Motel rooms aren't cheap either. The last I looked, one of the last rooms at a Days Inn in Bend was going for something like $900 per night during that week.

I'm more interested in finding some place DARK during the actual event. Around me that's going to be a maximum peak of ~3-5 minutes and a couple hours on each side, so between 3-7PM. Not sure it justifies a campout so much as a day trip for Monday, August 21st, 2017.

And there's another one rolling through the midwest in 2019 or 2021, I don't remember which. Then none for 30-40 years. :-(

Total eclipse will be about 20 miles from my house. I'll bet you it will be raining that afternoon.

August, so the odds are a little better for visibility. If it were anything but high summer where I live, forget it.

Next totals for U.S. looks to be Oct 14, 2023 and April 8, 2024. That April one will track right smack over Cleveland. We can all go to cbelt's house. (There's a Browns joke in there, too, but I can't see through the tears.)

I remember the eclipse of 1995 (or so). The entire engineering group was out in the parking lot with various devices to watch the eclipse.

A true geek fest.

Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017 and I'd like to see a total, the closest for me would be the Southern tip of Illinois or Western Kentucky about 100 to 125 mile drive. Probably settle for a partial. Here's a link to the path: [eclipse2017.org] -Or- [www.eclipse2017.org] I'm sure there are better sites. Oh well...
