You should've joined us. We had the awning on the camper out so we had a little shade, cool drinks, and a bathroom on the camper. About ten minutes before C2 the skies above us cleared.
The eclipse was spectacular. Shortly after it was done my oldest started packing everything up. I was hoping to stay awhile but when my son pointed out the traffic on NB I 57 I changed my mind. In seconds the highway went from no traffic to a parking lot. We bugged out immediately. With his help navigating we headed east out of Marion on 13 to 45. We made good time until we hit construction in Eldorado. We moved a mere 26 miles in 90 minutes. Eventually got rolling again. Every highway and byway north was packed. Made it home around 4:00 AM. I was going to try to make it to the club meeting last night but was too wiped out.
Overall it it was a great experience. I'd do it again in a second. Already looking forward to 2024.
