Made it to Ashland last night. Staying with friends in Medford tonight and Corvallis monday morning. My Medford friends got us a spot on a friends farm.
As for professional photo lens, yes a ND100000 is the best option. Amazon has them from $60 to over $200. Get one for next time ;-)

I don't feel like getting into a traffic jam to drive to and from the path of totality, so I'll be experiencing the 96% event at the Kentucky State Fairgrounds, here in Louisville. I have a nice DSLR, but won't be taking any pictures because I didn't buy one of those expensive solar filters.


You mean one of these?
About $26 at Amazon.

But there are other chances.
You just need to stick around.


Looks like I'll have to hang around for that 2099 pass overhead.
I can't wait..........


Can I come to your house to watch?
It's never too early to ask.

Well it is just about time for me to leave work and start packing my car up for the trip up north. So it’s time to pick a winner. It always seems that cute kitty pictures manage to get some pretty good captions. Thank you all for your thoughts and captions. More than three were winners. But here are the top three, IMHO.

Third Place:
KWSN THE Holy Hand Grenade!
Help! My claws are tangled in this dog's fur!


Second Place:
Rob Smith:
I hope the cat isn't molting again - it takes hours to get the ginger bits out....


First Place:
Grant Nelson:
my own puuuuuurfect rug


Post your best Grant!
PM sent. (well not actually sent but will be right after I hit Post reply.)

So what are you doing?
I am planning to leave Saturday early and drive 10 hours to Mt Shasta where I have a campground reserved. The drive about 4 hours on Sunday to Eugene. I have a friend there who is an astronomer who has offered me her living room for the night. Early Monday we will head up to Corvallis where we have some prime space reserved to watch and photograph. I have 2 DLSR with heavy tripods and solar filter. My Canon D5 will have a 300 mm lens and my Nikon P900 has a 2,000 mm lens.
Anyone else going to Oregon?

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go...

I only have a 200 mi drive for totality, I've heard I5 will be gridlocked, I"ll leave Sunday morning and hope I make it to Salem in time.

I am worried about the traffic too. My plan is to go to Shasta Sat nite (camp ground reserved), Eugene Sunday (at friends house) and Corvallis Monday. PMing you with my cell phone. Let's try to meet up. I might try to come up to Salem. I have friends that live there too.

My favorite was the Ferrari 308. You had to drop the engine and lift the body off to change the spark plugs. That is why the 30,000 mile service cost $8,000.
