Just a heads up - there's still a spot available if anyone's up for an adventure ;D.

Looks like you are struggling for people. Do I see a 90% discount coming?  :D

The bigger question is if he's inviting people to his plans for the solar eclipse.
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals

I may be going for work, but we're not sure at this point.

If it turns out that I'm not going, I'd love to arrange something here if there's enough interest.

Just curious, going where? I though the whole US will get a nice view...

The whole US will see a partial eclipse; only a narrow band across the county will experience totality.

Within this band many things come into play, primarily weather and proximity to a good east-west highway for last-minute repositioning. Photographically, the sun's position in the sky and its altitude are important, as are foreground elements and local geography.

Taking all that into account, the area I'm focusing on is eastern Oregon, between the Cascades and the Idaho border.

Knew you would have a good explanation... Thanks!

Is the eclipse a photography event or a HTBT event? Google will be filled with pictures of the eclipse.

One unique place to capture the eclipse would be off the Pacific coast of Oregon - you'd be able to see an eclipsed sun rise.
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

True, which is why I haven't planned something yet. If my work sends me, awesome. If there's enough interest here, awesome again. But I don't think I would go otherwise.

Except that the sun rises in the east :D. And that the eclipse over the Oregon coast happens around 4 hours after sunrise...

ETA: Just noticed that you wrote "OFF the coast". But my second point still stands ;).

As predicted by the astronomers decades in advance, the shadow arrives with perfect accuracy, and touches down in the north Pacific Ocean at 16:48:33 UT*, at local sunrise. (At that spot, the Sun will actually rise while totally eclipsed. This is a sight few people - even veteran eclipse chasers - have seen, and from what we hear, it is quite uncanny.)

I didn't pay enough attention to how far off the coast that would be when I read it last year! It was never something I considered going to see so I just thought that would be cool and moved on. My original plan was to book campsite in Teton but when I couldn't get reservations (despite calling on the first day) I picked a different spot based on where the maximum eclipse will be. I figured out later that it had the additional advantage of east west road. Though I still would not be disappointed to be immobile in Teton. That would be a risk I would take and there is plenty of consolation in just being there.

I don't even plan to bring a camera. My pictures won't compare to others, and I'd miss out on the event by having tbat distraction.
