We'll be on the ground, cursing the passing jet that ruined our pictures!

Just kidding - sounds like an amazing and memorable plan.

Oconee State Park (upstate SC) is at ground zero, Dreher Island State Park (near Columbia SC) is just a mile or two off of the centerline. We'll probably be on a pontoon on Lake Murray.

We have a campsite in the Grand Tetons for the eclipse. Anyone else? It would be fun to gather together for support and merrymaking.

Let me know if you are going to be the area,
Sandy

We're a little slow here in Western Washington (in the sticks)... Just learned about this eclipse. Last night we attempted to get a reservation at Champoeg State Park in Oregon... full up for Sunday the 20th. We did get reservations there for a few days later in the week though. We will be imposing on relatives in Silverton, OR to park out trailer for the big event which should be right on the path! Looking forward to seeing this sight!

I started looking for places last November in Oregon, all the State parks in the path are full along with camp grounds close to the center of totality. Coming from CA, I did find a couple in the path but way off Center to be open. I decided to stay in Corvallis and drive a half hour north to be at the center of the path. This makes a difference of almost a minute of totality.

As affiliates of the Oregon Unit, we signed up for this rally about 1 year ago. WBCCI'ers like to plan ahead.

Yep, we're planning to stop somewhere along the highway in the central U.S. Depending on weather conditions we'll drive NW or SE from somewhere near Nashville - hoping to find a suitable viewing area.

We'll be with my husband's family in Dubois, WY to watch the eclipse together. We'll be in Yellowstone the week before. I imagine they'll have a full house for the event

I was unable to sign up for this rally last year, but some openings became available and I got a spot just this week, so I guess I will be seeing the eclipse too!
