Solar Eclipse GTG
« on: 08/08/17 09:09 PM »

I just wanted to see if anyone wants to do a GTG for the First total solar eclipse visible to the USA since 1979. I personally have taken vacation time for that Mon and Tues, to return home. But plan to stay until the Eclipse has ended.

I will be staying in Rock Hill SC.

Funny you should mention S. Carolina meet for the eclipse. Someone we are buying a house from said we could close August 9th. He came back a few days later and said we can't close until the 25th because the house he is buying in S. Carolina isn't available until AFTER the people living there have their solar eclipse party  :beating:.


Damn it, I'm homeless and they are having a solar eclipse party?!?!?! Bastards.  :laugh:

What days??  It looks like it will be only a few hours from me, and you will likely be driving pretty close to the house..

Yep people are going crazy over this eclipse. I work in a welding store and we get 4 to 5 ppl a day asking for a shade 14 welding glass lens so they can stare directly at it. They are only $3 to $5, but seen some on ebay for $48, Yikes! Just hope it don't rain.  :o

From what I've been reading on the net, every major city in the total eclipse path are preparing for massive crowds. They say people from all over the world are coming to the Us just to view the eclipse. Crazy stuff

It really was a once in a lifetime thing :thumbsup:. Very cool, love the total darkness, the moon blocking the sun, like a black hole with this intense white ring of light surrounding it. It really was amazing how quickly it got cooler and less light, very noticeable.
I also was surprised how well my welders mask did, it actually worked very well
