I'm taking the day off and heading to Kearney or Grand Island. Either way, the totality is gonna go right over my head.

That's funny.  He doesn't look Druish.

If you're a druid, can you first please explain who you are and what you're doin'?

Boring and commercial.

I'd head to the Maze. Ya know, if I believed in superstition.

I wish I was at my dad's place in Montana - I'd go to Jerusalem Rocks, up near the Canadian border crossing at Sunburst.

Less than 8 hours between the fake and the real.

Practice what you preach, Druid.

Stonehenge was an amazing time keeping device. It's too bad the Druids lost the key and stopped winding it.

Dammit, NPR! I was secretly going to Alliance while everyone else from Denver was slogging their way up I25  to Wyoming. Now we're screwed!

I'm just going to furiously masturbate until I find God during the eclipse.

No matter how many times you roll the dice, that will never happen.

Amtrak has an early train to Cairo IL from Chicago.

They sent mean email saying "see the eclipse, round trip, you get home at 10PM"

No surprise that sold out before I could get in on it.

I have to work that day but hope to dip out for a bit when its at maximum.  87% aint bad I guess.

Before reading the article, I was half-expecting the Carhenge would be the one out by Amarillo, TX. I stand corrected: that one is called Cadillac Ranch.

CSB:
Was in Amarillo, visiting friends. On my way out, stopped at the Ranch. It was early in the morning and there was a photography session involving a nude late 20s couple. I've wondered a few times what the project was for. Engagement announcement?

Why on earth would you go all the way to Cairo when Carbondale is a lot closer to Chicago and the eclipse will last far longer?

Not to mention that Carbondale still has signs of life to it still compared to Cairo.

I'd tell you how awful that show was, but if I'm truly honest with myself, 27 years ago, when I was 14 and reading those books, I probably would have thought it was the coolest thing ever.  As mediocre as it was, I still watched the whole thing.

Also, Carhenge represents why being an American is so awesome.

The Amtrak train probably was to Carbondale if that's a better spot.

FTFY

At the British lodges and meetings of the Ancient Order of Druids, discussions of religion and politics aren't allowed.  Their essence is pursuit of the "main principles attributed to the early Druids, particularly those of justice, benevolence and friendship."

The UK home page is down right now but the US home page is here:

I got to take a few pictures this April while taking my best friend's nephew to Job Corps at Chadron State Park. It was a nice road trip, but I think I'm just going to drive to Grand Island or Central City and hang out with my Aunt and Uncle.
