Just incase anyone was wondering, there's a solar eclipse that's going to be visible across the U.S. in August 2017. 

There's an entire website dedicated to what times and days it may be visible in certain areas. 

The website is called "eclipse2017".

 

below is a picture of the areas where the eclipse will be visible.

Fortunately for me I have less than 50 miles to go to catch it :D already have camping plans.

Thanks for sharing! After reading up on it, I'm already beginning to make plans for August to go down to Oregon and check it out!

My hometown is getting a lot of tourism from this eclipse. All hotels booked, all campgrounds, all B&Bs, everything. I'm actually conflicted about the fact I don't live there anymore and can't be there for this. They're getting a front row seat. But, at the same time.....I do NOT want to fight the influx of people to the area.

I'm five hours away, and there is very little that will stop me from seeing this. Of course, once I was finally approved for time off it was too late to book any accommodations, so I'm doing a 2:00am road trip to make it down. Anyone else have crazy plans to go see it?

In February I was making plans to go camping with a group, but all of the nearby campsites that accept reservations filled up within hours of the calendar opening  :blink: they chose a spot way too far for me to justify, so I'm planning on driving my car north into the path of totality (it's only 15 minutes from my apartment) until I find the right, secluded county road to park off of. There's half of a million people expected to descend into the parts of my metro where it's happening, I figure some random county road in the area not being advertised as heavily might make logistics easier on me.

Where will you be going to see it?

 

I will be driving down to Salem, or some where close by, hopefully finding some place to park, and nabbing a coffee until the eclipse.

Whew! It wasn't easy doing it this late in the game, but I was able to find a hotel room in Newport, Oregon for the night before the eclipse. I'm going to go down with my wife and daughter to watch the eclipse on the beach, and I'm planning on charging some lunisolar water that I've been steeping with gold and silver.
