I hope to have the new 26' by then, and friends have a home near Greenville, SC. with a vacant lot next door. They promise me power and I'm going!

have a great time on your trip and take pictures. It will be quite a change from the tent trailer. We are hoping to stay at some friends field near Salem Oregon.

I found a small CG on Barkley Lake in western KY. It had 3 sites available. I walked up to talk to the wife and son about going, they weren't interested. (drive all that way for 2.5 minutes?) I checked with my brother and he jumped at the chance. I went back to the reservation site (like 5 minutes later) all 3 sites were gone.

I checked a lot of other places and finally found 1 site on the Cumberland river in TN, west of Nashville, south of Centerville. they had 1 site left. Makes me wonder what's wrong with it. But it was only $22 for 2 nights with my Senior Pass, so what's to lose?)

Everyplace else that I could find was booked for that Monday. I used Reserve America so there might be some small CGs available. Our site is a short walk to the Cumberland river, we might be able to do some bank fishing.

We had a partial eclipse in Louisville a number of years ago, back in the 90s. I've never experienced a full eclipse, this should be interesting.

The NASA interactive map has been moved to the following web site:

https://eclipse2017.nasa.gov/sites/d...map/index.html

It's surprising how much of the eclipse will be viewable across the entire United States and parts of Canada. Yes, you'll see a total eclipse if you are within the band shown on the map. To varying degrees you'll likely see a partial eclipse no matter where you are in North America.

I want to "see" as much of the eclipse as possible. Be sure to watch the eclipse through proper glasses. If you're a welder you may already have #14 lenses and apparently that's suitable for viewing. For others you can purchase inexpensive "glasses" online or in local education shops and bookstores. Be sure to look for ISO certified products - there are a limited number of brands that are ISO certified for viewing.

Is this the type?

"Independently tested CE Certified Green Athermal Shade 14 Glass Welding Lenses Eliminates 100% of harmful UV and IR light. Meets the transmittance requirements for ISO 12312-2:2015"

What I found in past eclipses; is that if you do not have access to the filters to look directly, look instead away. If you find pinhole lights, such as the sun shining through a trees boughs, you see thousands of tiny eclipse shadows through the full series.

So I have my reservations at the KOA at Mt Pleasant; Charleston SC. Ping me anyone who may be at the "final stop" of the eclipse path in the Continental USA, and let's mini-rally! (Or at least toast the eclipse)

We'll be on Casper Mountain just outside Casper, WY. Made our reservations in December 2016.

Made reservations at Trail of Tears State Park outside of Cape Girardeau MO. Called back when the 6 month window opened for advance reservations, and barely got in. Anyone else there?
Viewing glasses from Eclipse2017.org - inexpensive, made in USA, said to meet ISO standards.

We will be camping at Indian creek campground in Cherokee NC for the eclipse.
We thought we'd try to see it from Clingmans dome but that is serviced by bus only that day and sold out a long time ago.

Should be fun.
