    I loved them. Hated to have to return them to Smokey the Bear when I retired :).

    2.5 hours...??? What does this reference? From what I read, the difference in experiencing full totality and 95% is something like the difference between looking at a Playboy centerfold when you are 15 years old, and having full loving sex with your best friend and life partner after being away from each other for a couple of weeks. (My comparison, not something the astronomers offered :))

    Don't get snippy, now. :) I never ever said it was no problem. I have just said that when people think I don't understand what it's like to work in hot and humid conditions, that they are mistaken. And that it can be done while still using proper PPE. Working outdoors in a physically demanding job in that sort of weather takes a special skill set, and you better know how or you can get bad sick, or worse.

    Rough working in that, for sure. Take a break, Brian.

    I hope y'all are right. Make life much easier if it were so. But I'm not holding my breath for it...forecast 1 million visitors to a state with a total population of well under 4 million, all concentrated in a 70 mile wide by 350 mile long strip. That could get ugly.

    Little prick was right...state law :). We the public are deemed too stupid to safely pump our own :). Funny thing is, prices for gas are not higher, and often are lower than in WA, ID, CA and western states farther away as well.

    Might be a blessing, considering how the public safety officials here are talking doom and gloom over how many visitors are coming to Oregon, and how difficult it is going to be to supply gas, groceries, emergency medical services, etc. Especially in the face of the extreme wildfire hazard level. Highways and most secondary roads in the path and outward at least a hundred miles are expected to be parking lots.

    M and I and another couple, great friends, are going to travel south a couple of hours to camp in a pretty remote part of the MHNF, then hike to an abandoned fire lookout tower site for the eclipse. At this point, might well be smoky from several big fires close by and afar, but even if views of the sun are hampered, it will still be totality darkness. Charged up, gonna be fun.

    I've had to do that a couple of times too, Stig. Sure makes you appreciate the real climbing gear afterwards, doesn't it ? :D

    Those big, strong, and fearless of taking the challenge of a gut busting back breaking load will sooner or later...usually sooner, be gut busted and back broken. And if they are on your books as a legitimate employee, may well cost you and the rest of us untold dollars in workman's comp. Just an idle observation. ;)

    Smoke here too, but not nearly so bad as y'all are having, Justin and Stephen. But it has been a few times over the years, and it is tough going for us outdoors types. Take care of yourselves.
