"Dead" is not a good word for me in that context.

Me & ZonieTaco are in, assuming we remember next year. And assuming my work gives me a month off to do it right. I already asked and apparently it's "too early" to request time off for then. Pfft.

10 days is a good do it right estimate, 5 days would be the minimum

Two days up, one day eclipsing, two days back

But not hitting Yellowstone while up there is just nuts

Just a reminder that the lodgings for the eclipse are rapidly dwindling. 1Louder and I are staying in the Grant's Campground in Yellowstone (Which is about 40mi from totality, well worth seeing Yellowstone while up there.

It won't look like this when we are there, but this photo is really cool none the less:

Is Yellowstone back to it's former glory? It was awesome when I was a kid, but the last time I was there about 14 years ago, it was half burned down, and the water works were only half working.

I went to Yellowstone back in June. It was one of the coolest places i've been. I've been up and down both coast and all over the middle of this country. I'd highly recommend visiting Yellowstone if you plan on going up for this eclipse. You'll be glad you did.

Most of the burned down lodgepole pine in 1988 is 20' tall plus now (Grown back). The park service did -0- reseeding, which is truely amazing once you see how extensive the pine stand is.

I was there in 2010 and 2015. I can assure you, this is as magnificent now as it has been. Well worth the visit. The last time I was there I was aware of the caldera walls (Because I camped near one). It was incredible.

It's been 99 years since a total solar eclipse was so accessible to Americans from coast to coast, eclipse expert Jay Pasachoff, an astronomer at Williams College in Massachusetts, told Space.com last year. In addition, the Aug. 21 event will be the first-ever solar eclipse whose path of totality hits no country other than the United States. (The last one to meet this geographical standard occurred before the nation gained its independence in 1776.)

Just down from the Falls, there is a spot in the river that locals know about where a few hot pots drain. Who knows maybe everyone knows now, but there is a great place to sit and soak in the mix of hot and cold water. We used to hang there a lot when I was in College. If people want to go hot tubbing... it is about a 3/4 mile hike back into the river.

Also, just north of the park, there is some world class fly fishing. If you have seen "A River Runs Through It" parts of it were filmed on the upper Madison and Gallatin rivers.

Plenty of hiking in the park and the Beartooth Mountains. One of the most scenic drives you can make is going through Cooke City over to Red Lodge on the Beartooth Highway.

I may have extra rooms avail in Island Park depending on if my Brother will be there with his kids.
