    Eclipse 2017

    Anyone got plans? I'm heading to Nashville with the family. Going to see what my best opportunities are there vs Hopkinsville KY. Catching a plane in a few hours. I'll get back online with the farm after I settle in the hotel with a cold one.

    We had a great view, 2 min 25 seconds of totality in SC, but were not successful in photographing the experience. The most amazing thing I've ever witnessed.

    Yeah, those two minutes were breathtaking. No pictures could do it justice. If you see people get emotional on the news, don't be surprised one bit.

    Had one here a few years back, wasn't particularly interested. What caught me out was the "feeling" the ambiance and looking around at ground level was as good as looking directly. Now I would be interested if not too far to travel
