With my parents living in rural OR right in the path of the eclipse, it would have made a great trip. Instead, signed up for a MTB stage race for the same time and will miss the eclipse unless we can see it on the drive home. Which will be in the transit.

Heh... They showed the track of totality this morning on the local news - and looks like Matt Ford could be a good spot for it! Maybe we should have a "family reunion" for those who bought Transits from them?

We might have to camp out on their back lot... The reporter doing the story just recently came here from Nebraska and said all the hotels in Nebraska near the track have been booked solid for months!

The way my luck goes, wouldn't matter where I tried to see it there would be a storm system in the area with solid overcast...!

Hmmm..the track of totality basically goes right through my area in western NC . You have me thinking.. May have rent our house out that week, and stay in our partly finished van.

If mine is confirmed, built, and delivered to NE Oregon by the eclipse I may be taking it down the road to watch. Presumably I won't have done any work on it yet, but I can throw a couple sleeping bags and pads in the back if we want to camp out the night before.
