Flying out to Nashville! Probably a lousy choice weather-wise, but at least there should be a fun atmosphere in Music City.

My wife & I are flying to Kansas City the night before, plan to stay in a hotel about 15 minutes south of the line of totality, then drive to the line for the show. Aiming for a really small town to avoid the crowds.

For my part, I have a possible conflict, and if worst comes to worst I'll miss the best of it up here in Canada. Perhaps the 2024 one is another opportunity...
