    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.

    The smoke just means you won't need welding glasses.
    Through a glass darkly and all that.
    You'll love it.
    Hope you get to see a bunch of crows or ravens go home to roost.

    One of the big news programs showed a map of the eclipse path and left out Idaho. My wife sent me this new updated map today.

    I was visiting with a fellow from Idaho that was not looking forward to the influx of people.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    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.

    Hope everything turns out for you guys.

    Did they have to draft thousands more people to.pump gas in Oregon for the festivities?

    First time I went to Oregon I bout got in a fist fight. Little prick said I could not pump my own gas.

    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.

    Never going to happen, imo. Maybe I'm wrong though, maybe I just don't get it.
