They are delaying school here in SC so that the kids can see the eclipse.  My kids all have their viewing glasses already and they were learning about it the last week of school.

Will take a mess of photos and post one.  We are staying at the golf course driving range and I here there still are sites at the school.  NASA will be onsite.

I'll be near Boise, which is close as I dare to get.  It'll be 99.5% eclipsed here.  I'm only 14 miles from the totality zone, but I don't want to mess with traffic with the estimated 500,000 visitors that are expected in Idaho.  I'd hate to be stuck on the road for hours with young children and no access to a bathroom.  Several of the cities and counties near here have already declared disasters or states of emergency in anticipation of the crowds.

I'm glad you're getting an early start.  Please let us know how traffic and crowds are, especially as Monday morning approaches.

 

Good luck and have fun!

Area around me is nuts.  Gas stations ran out of gas over the weekend.  News is telling locals to stay off roads.  Thankfully I can watch it through totality in my backyard!  

 

Neighbor has 10 acres and his family friends are flying in soon on their private helicopter (they live up in VA).  I think my kids are more excited to see that vs. the eclipse.  They have 10 or so families coming over to watch.  

 

Had blue bird skies all morning but clouds have been slowly building as the heat rises.  We have a lot of big puffy clouds now so hopefully we get a good view in a couple hours.

Great pictures, ASD Dad!

 

I checked the traffic here in Idaho this morning, and all the roads were flowing smoothly.  So, we drove to Idaho City and got a great view of totality for 40 seconds.  Traffic was perfect both ways!

Traffic here is backed up for over 40 miles on the main highways getting out of town.  It is even worse south of us.  Live news shots make it look like a parking lot as far as they can see.  I have to run out later and I am not looking forward to it!  

 

Added a few more shots.  All these were shot handheld with a simple Canon SX50 HS Superzoom at max zoom (1200 equivalent focal length!).  For the sun photos I held cheap $1 eclipse glasses over the center of the lens.  Crude but it worked!  I have two older Sony DSLR's but I dont have the filters needed for those lenses so took a chance with my wife's camera and am super happy how they turned out.

ASD Dad, you should consider contributing your pictures of totality to the Eclipse Megamovie project.  https://eclipsemega.movie/

Ended up going 20 miles north of Weiser to DNR camp. $3.00 a night. The CEO of Carl Zeiss Optics was camped next to us. Made the trip from Germany. Got to play with very cool stuff he brought. He is going to send me all his shots and video! Here are the solar flares.
