We'll have extra at the DO ;)

At this rate you're going to have a bigger crowd than I will
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

LOL. A crowd of friends is fine by me; strangers, not so much.

XNA has space. What time is it supposed to be there

We're driving up to the KS/MO/NE border area.

Any chance I'm back in ORD same day?

Is there any good collection of flights expected to be in path of totality at the right time? AA 1972 looks like a candidate to me, any thoughts?

It passes through about 20 minutes early. The pilot will slow down to catch it....right?

What traffic predictions do you guys have for driving up on Sunday from NYC to either Chattanooga, Columbia, SC or Smokey Mountains? Usually it is roughly 12 hours, you think it will be heavy traffic driving up on Sunday?!!

. Even the ones who do buy them are doing it for ideology or status.



range anxiety is and will remain a huge roadblock to widespread success. Rapid charging is just not rapid enough, and having fill stations that swap out batteries is pretty impractical (so far).
In CA both of those statements are outdated. The status is the same status as buying a Beemer, it any luxury car. I know plenty of people who drive electric cars with no practical or technical difficulties.
The rest of the country will catch up.
