Cool Solar Eclipse this August

Cheers everyone! I am truly looking forward to enjoying an extended road-trip in our SLK250 to the lovely city of Charleston, SC this coming August!!! The US will be perfectly positioned for a total solar eclipse on August 21, and Charleston, SC is close enough that we should be able to kill two birds with one stone:
  1. Visit the historic port city of Charleston, SC
  2. Experience a full and complete solar eclipse
If anyone is unaware but curious as to the path of the totality, take a look at the following site which plots the entire observable totality from coast to coast:

Total Eclipse 2017

Still looking for more road-trip ideas.... Any suggestions?


Cheers!
~ JC

I'll have to give this some thought. From the Northern Virginia area, that's got to be at least 14 hours of driving! ... However, Clermont is also only 3 ~ 4 hours from other family in Fort Lauderdale... Hmmmmm... (pensive!)
