Total darkness during the day

Path of solar eclipse.

It's less than a week before the 2017 Solar Eclipse.

We'll be driving 3 hours that morning to arrive at the path of Totality.

We've been looking forward to this all Summer.

Last time I had the opportunity to go see a total eclipse I had to drive through Belgium and into France (about five hours). Going there wasn't too bad; lots of people went there in the days before.

But after the event, everybody wanted to go home. The road home was one big traffic jam.

So you might want to consider staying a day.

Did you think it was worth the drive?

Got any photos to share?
