    Quoted from jar155:

    No joke, we're already planning how to get to the 2024 eclipse.
    People...you REALLY need to get into the path of totality next time. 99.9% isn't good enough. You miss everything that is spectacular by not being in the totality path. Whatever it takes to get there next time, do it. Go. Go. Go. Go.
    I would sell any pinball machine I owned to get there if I came to it. It's not just a "neat" experience. It's overwhelmingly powerful and truly awesome in every meaning of the word. Days later, I can't stop thinking about it.

    Part of the reason I didn't bust my balls is because 2024 isn't too far away, and neither is Buffalo. I'll deal with it then.

    Quoted from wyopin:

    I'm in the path...considered renting out either rooms or some of my acreage, but then decided against dealing with the influx. However, I'm still skeptical with how many folks will come into the middle of WY

    I wouldn't imagine too many! Grandpa taught in Pinedale so I know how remote you are.

    My hometown in Nebraska was directly in the path but the death of a grandparent scuttled my plans to be there. Last one on either side trumped it but just barely.

    jar155 totally agree with your comments. This is a must see bucket list item.

    One of the things that is not emphasized enough is: When the sun is eclipsed at 50%, the sun looks like it normally does when full and you have to view with glasses.
    At 90% the sun looks the same, at 99% the sun still looks like it does at high noon. And then, in an "instant", the sky goes dark and you see a big black hole in the sky with white shimmering all around as you view without glasses. Truly spectacular. I can understand why some people travel around the globe to see totality.
    I've been reading about 2024. They say cloud coverage during early April is more than likely 50%, and snow could happen at that time of the year in upstate NY,VT, NH,MA. Looks like Texas is the place to go.
