Good MORNING campers!
Well it is eclipse day!
Pay attention to situational awareness! Watch out for traffic. Especially in the dry west areas watch out for fires caused by parking hot vehicles in tall dry grass.
In our area last week started with reports of people squatting on private property preping for this eclipse.
One radio report that we heard this AM a normal commute of 9 minutes is taking 27 minutes….
We would be very interested in hearing your reports of how the eclipse experience went for you.
How were the crowds and traffic?
Did the food places have enough on had?
How about fuel? One station we heard about had run out of gas [all grades] Sunday night and wont get resupplied till Tuesday. They still have diesel fuel.
Did you have reservations over the eclipse that they canceled or charged more for than planned?
How did communications go? How did your radios work? Was there issues with your cell phone – over the weekend there were a few times that our phones would not connect because ‘all circuts were busy”… I suspect that the large amount of traffic did that…. I bet during the eclipse there will be a lot of dropped calls.
BTW kxl.com reportedly will have Clyde Lewis live this AM to help report on the eclipse.
