Default Total Solar Eclipse 2017

As some of you already know, I have been waiting for August 21, 2017 for a very long time. On that day there is going to be a total solar eclipse at the Overlook. If, after reading this you thought to yourself "What Overlook?", then you can probably disregard the rest of this post.

I made reservations at the Gap a long time ago for this, probably 7 or 8 years ago. So many things have changed since I made those reservations - some of the change has been good and some has been bad. The Gap is a very different place today than it was then, and many of us are very different people than we were then. Hard to believe things can change so much in such a short time.

Anyway, I thought it would be awesome to try to make that kind of like a reunion week and get together some folks who have not seen each other in a while and just have a darn good time. The time period we will be there is 08/19 - 08/27.

Even if you have never been part of any of the trips to the mountains feel free to make a showing that week. One of the best parts of a week in the mountains is seeing old friends, but making new friends is a big part of the reason why those trips have been so awesome.

Anyway, I have started a Facebook group to kind of let people talk back and forth and share information. I know a lot of folks on here do not do Facebook, but there are more people on Facebook than there are on here so that is going to be the main place information is shared. It is a private, hidden group so if you want to be in on it let me know and I will add you if you are not already in. For those who do not Facebook I will repost anything important over here to keep you up to date.

Have not been to the Smokys past 2 summers and need to get there. We also need arrange another midnight "photo session" at the overlook.

I'll check the calendar .....

I'm ready! Santa brought me a new camera for Christmas, and not only does it have a monster flash, but it also has a slave flash so I can hit you with a flash in each eye. Might do permanent damage, but it will be hella funny so I am willing to take the chance.

I just realized that this is the perfect opportunity for that. This is the one day that us old farts do not need to stay up until midnight to do that! We can do it at 2:30 in the afternoon!
