August road trip to look at darkness?
This August there's going to be a total eclipse of the sun that will be visible in the United States.
As you can see from the map, it looks like the best viewing will be around the area of western Kentucky. You will also notice that the track of the eclipse goes nowhere near my home in New Hampshire.
However, a very good friend of mine, lives in western Kentucky. He's invited a bunch of friends and family to join him for the viewing. It's very tempting to take him up on the offer. He has a first come first served offer. The first ones there can snag the bed in the guest room. After that it's tents in the yard. Actually, my lovely wife and I might just prefer the tent. That's how we roll.
At least we've time to think about it. I'm going to keep my schedule open just in case we decide to go on a road trip.
