Total Eclipse of the Sun

Postby Car94 » Wed Jul 26, 2017 2:57 pm

Anyone Interested in coming tô Missouri for the Eclipse on 8/21/17. I have plenty of Camping space available and fishing in a well stocked lake. The morning of the Eclipse I will be riding over to my Daughters house near Booneville, Mo because that is dead center of the eclipse. It's a fun ride over there from my place and it should be a pretty good time.

I would love to be there!

But there's the small problem of 8,962 miles to overcome :wall

Plus my bike would need a really long snorkel to get through the water crossing :lol8

That would be neat to go see, but I have seen eclipse before so, meh... :lol8

Seems this eclipse is suppose to be a big deal tho. I have a friend who is taking her family up there from here (Arkansas) and I informed her that the traffic up there in central MO is gonna be somethin to behold...she says its too late to back out now with all the planning she put in. :ImaPoser

All the hotels in Columbia and surrounding area are either sold out or are jacking the prices way up. Luckily I know the back roads, so traffic should not be an issue.

It's our turn in 2028.

Everyone is welcome - we could camp in the outback away from the crowds. Seriously some of this path will be 500km away from sealed roads or towns.

Everyone is welcome!

If you save up for your flights over the next 11 years, it works out to about $2.50 - $3 per week per person.
