fbhjr: (Experience)
This morning we got up at 5:30 local time. (A comfortable 8:30 our normal time that we're still more or less on.)
We were on the road just after 6.

For all the reasons of hotels, cars and chaos already mention, we gave up on seeing the eclipse in Idaho. I'm a bit sad as I've never been to Idaho and wanted to see it. But, we're still flying out of there, so not too bad.

We've settled on Baker City Oregon for where to watch it. 1 minute 36 seconds of total eclipse. Not the best, but not too bad either.
Google said it was about 5 1/2 hours from Seattle to here. We did it in 6, but stopped for gas and lunch, so not too bad.
There was hardly any traffic. So, the whole "traffic apocalypse" thing isn't happening here.

We got here just after noon, and walked around for a bit. They were having an eclipse festival. We stopped there and a the local historical museum next to it.

Then, we came back to the hotel. No where near as nice a room as I'd normally get for the money, but in the path.

We'll go off for dinner soon and then wait for the eclipse.

I'm a bit worrried it was getting cloudy, but the weather says clear tomorrow. Hope it's right!

I really liked the Maori cultural performance at the Auckland museum.
Here is the video of the different parts.
