    re: Are you near the path? 2017 Solar Eclipse - Totality

    We went to see the Leonid meteor showers in, I think 2002. the rate was 3000 meteors per hour. A pretty intense experience. I recommend this experience to everyone. When there is a chance you can go experience a sky event do it. If you have friends and family take them...

    Pretty cool experience!
    Moon shadows, chill in the air, darkness upon the valley, cresents and rings... People gasping and yelling. Good stuff!

    Lights went out for 58 seconds at our location... the ambiance during #totality was pretty awesome! Clear skies and a great ride instead of work! Can't beat that!

    Hopefully others can post up some great pictures.... the moon shadows waving on the ground was amazing. It just grew silent in the woods at 5000ft.

    Re: Are you near the path? 2017 Solar Eclipse - Totality

    I took the day off to photograph a salt marsh between Brigham City and Thiokol, I always thought it looked like Mordor and thought it'd look cool dark, yet lit from above. Even though it was in the 95% coverage band, the light was extremely disappointing (the darkness was enough to bring out the mosquitoes, however!)

    Don't throw away your eclipse sunglasses, though! They're excellent multi-taskers, in case Kim Jong Un presses the button.

    I think Randy was singing this song today.

    Haha! A couple there had a radio tuned in that played them all in proper sequence...
    Even our beloved Dark Side of the Moon!

    If you have to drive to see totality, drive or ride! Needless to say the bike was a great choice today. And we met miles of fresh asphalt on one of my favorite roads... Fast sweeper, free of cracks, pot holes, and tar snakes... A win!

    Are you near the path? 2017 Solar Eclipse - Totality

    On our way to Columbia, SC for the Eclipse we hit all the great named roads... "The Back of the Dragon" VA-16, 421 "The Snake", NC-209 "The Rattler", The Tail of the Dragon of course, and the Cherohala Skyway. We were on the skyway on the 20th before aiming for SC and found every single scenic pulloff already occupied by eclipse chasers, some had set up the day before.
    Look at this guy's car-camping setup!


    Weather forecasts said that SE Tennessee would be clear and Columbia would be cloudy. We contemplated just staying where we were but our friend in SC woulda been pissed. Glad we continued! Turned out that we had the clearest skies possible, right in my buddies backyard with cold beer, clean bathrooms and A/C if needed!

    Not too many pictures were taken, chose to leave that to the pros and just enjoy the eclipse moment. Managed to snag one blurry iPhone shot of the eclipse and of the eclipse-like shadows.



    What a trip. Lifetime of memories packed into 7 days. Ended up camping 4 nights at primitive Blue Ridge Parkway sites- the only way to go!
