Eclipse Skoolie style

So who's driving their Skoolie to see the eclipse on Aug 21? I'll be driving from Winnemucca NV to near John Day OR. Probably up, spend the night and back but maybe an extra day. Traffic on my route shouldn't be bad; some of you might remember the traffic as much as the eclipse! Good Viewing!!

Sounds like a great trip! I am doing an eclipse party at my place so no traveling in my bus but it will be my office for all the guests that are coming to stay the weekend. If anybody wants a nice place to park in southeast Idaho to view the eclipse, give me a hollar!

The whole reason I bought my bus back in April was to see the eclipse from Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Leaving Monday!

Saint Clair Missouri about an hour south of St. Louis is where me and mine are going! In the path of totality.
It's a festival called Darkening of the Sun. It takes place on Cherokee Nation land. A HUGE Native American showing with ceremonies and live music!
It's going to be incredible.

tango, y'all get one in a about 6 years or so. it'll be close to you too.

i'm about an hour south of the totality band, so i'm planning on packing up saturday night and heading north to find a free paring spot for a day or 2. i made reservations at a campground but they are charging $200/night in Alliance, NE. thats not even hookups, just a dry parking spot.

i called the highway patrol this morning to see how ong i can be on the side of the road before its an issue. they didnt care, they think they will be busy with crazys. i've heard estimates of 500,000 people showing up in these little towns with no facilities. its gonna be fun.
oh, and i got my viewing glasses last week

I just took a test shot to make sure my camera equipment is doing what I want it to.
