I saw the 1979 total eclipse from the bluff above the Columbia River Gorge near Goldendale WA. Close to the Stonehenge Replica. It was truly awe-inspiring. I'm looking forward to seeing my 2nd one.

Good thing it is early in the day, as you will see it so much more clearly. :beer: :beer: :beer:

The eclipse will be postponed until it clears up.

We came home from the Sunsets & Crabs Gathering this past Tuesday to Smoky skies, as there were more than 200 wild fires burning in B.C. :cry:
But, things seem to be clearing up now.
I am sure those who attend the Gathering in Shaniko will have a pretty clear view of the eclipse. ;)

I'd suppose everyone in Wyoming would be disappointed to miss the eclipse because of wildfire smoke. :(

Doubly disappointed, if they have to watch their backside at the same time. :R

Perhaps we can have a few photos of our 'drops camped and shaded by the moon? :thinking: :thumbsup: :pictures:

Hey Tony, wife and I dragged our TD through your town last weekend on our way home from Banff and Glacier.
Parked on Main and had dinner Saturday evening at Fiesta al... something.

Was wishing I could have looked you up to thank you for all the advice a couple years ago while building our drop.
She's been amazing and gets a lot of use!

The PNW TearJerkers 3rd annual Fall Crawl will be coming to your neck of the woods in September.
Hope you can join us for a few nights while in the Hells Canyon area. :thumbsup:

ARRRGH!!!

Damn, I think I saw it... Two that day, tespassin' in MY town. A Little Guy and a snazzy-looking red one!

You two musta had a fine trip. We're just back from a two-nighter. It was still hot at 8500'.

Yessir, the red one was me! And yes, it was still very toasty that evening.
We were going to find a place along the river to camp for the night, but decided to just head home.

We may try to make it back up that way for the eclipse, but I'm guessing your town is going to be overrun that weekend!
