Total Eclipse of the Heart

I have known about the total solar eclipse that will cross the US in August for some time now. Initially I was going to drive to my old stomping grounds of Carbondale IL since the peak of the eclipse was supposed to happen right around Giant City State Park. I then realized that the difference in time of maximum eclipse between Illinois and someplace like Wyoming was about 2 seconds. Sure. I would gladly give up 2 seconds of eclipse to save several hours of driving. Besides, Kitty and I have been wanting to take a little vacation to the Black Hills for some time now. This would provide a perfect opportunity. Since I was booking hotels for Europe, I thought I might as well book a hotel for the eclipse. Oops. Too late. Every hotel in Casper, Douglas, Cheyenne, North Platte, Scottsbluff, Grand Island, and every other town along the path of totality has been booked. I found a vacancy at a Super 8 in a little Interstate-exit-town in Nebraska that was close to the path, but it was going for $500! *LOL* So it looks like we'll be staying in Ft Collins, CO and driving the 2 hours up into Wyoming. It's doable since the eclipse doesn't happen until 9 or 10 in the morning. I'm thinking about fursuiting it. I bet that hasn't been done before!
