RE: Solar Eclipse 2017
Personally I think it's worth the drive to see a total eclipse considering their rarity. We seldom see them where I live at the bottom of Australia... sulk...

Although I did see one here in 1976, so all is not lost I guess. Cool

13 hours in the car with small children and you might witness another rare phenomenon...

No small children in my case, but did I mention that my friend is a smoker? Not quite a chain smoker, but still, he smokes a lot. So imagine you're a non-smoker, with a limited amount of vacation time, and to see this eclipse you have to burn a vacation day and spend 12 hours in a car with a smoker? I want to see it, but I'm not sure I want to see it that badly.

RE: Solar Eclipse 2017
That would be a deal breaker for me. I don't have asthma, but cigarette smoke triggers a reaction in my body that makes it harder to breathe. Then I can 'smell' the cigarette smoke for a good week after being around it. It's almost like it sits in my lungs.

I hope you can find another solution. Perhaps a gas mask? lol

Yes. I plan to sacrifice a goat and three chickens at totality, to propitiate the shadow demons, and make the sun come back.

Shocking

Nope. In fact with all the people coming here, I sorta hope it rains.

Yeah bitchy mom.

Anyway..it happens in the morning here...98 percent, I gather.

I'm going to bet dollars to donuts that we all forget and sleep late.

Won't work unless you add in dancing nekkid around an inverted cross. While chanting "Make America Great Again!!!"

My sister and her friend have made plans to drive down to Carbondale, Illinois to see it.

I'm planning to get all of the neighbors together to beat pots and pans vigorously with wooden spoons. It worked for the people in the Middle Ages, and saves on goats. Yes

RE: Solar Eclipse 2017
I just double-checked my hotel reservations in Nashville Sunday the 20th to make sure we all still have a room.

Nashville is the largest city in the path of totality, so I'm sure traffic is going to be a bit nuts that day.

Can't wait. Have my tripod and DSLR ready.Thumbsup
