I did a scouting trip to WY last weekend. I may do another. I have some family and a bunch of non LC friends I have been talking to. My plan includes buying a bunch of the viewing glasses, a fun route to get there, a day with local exploring and then the eclipse day. For now just PM me if interested. I may post something here/ RSers always make it more fun!

This link brought up a huge area. Can you clarify area?

I was thinking in this patch of National Forest, there are a bunch of roads around in it.. I like Dave's spot, but this is a tad closer to Denver.

I don't know what they are saying in the Front Range, but in Oregon, they are expecting up to 1.5 Million people will travel to the state to view the event. They are predicting all major roads will be total gridlock for a day or two on either side of August 21st as everyone tries to get to and from their viewing spot. I think it is safe to assume the same thing will occur on all major roads between Denver and Wyoming.

Subscribing - wife and I were talking about this months ago and now that we're almost here, we don't have plans yet but would love to take our kids (and us!) up to see this. If a number of us are going to try to make this happen, would love to participate!

Hulk: Interested to hear what you ultimately decide to do as I'll also have kids I'll need to pull out of school.

Up around the word "Box elder" could be decent. The rest is too far south for best effect.

I have a friend whose parents live in Lander. They have some land there that they might let us use.

Matt, the road concerns are valid. We may want to map out a back road return path.

We've been trying to figure this out as well. Count me in. Also going to bring the kids. I'm good for the whole weekend if it becomes a little longer trip.
