8/18/17 Update re camping: Todd Kramer is now allowing people to camp at his ranch beginning on Saturday!
8/17/17 Update re Eclipse Road Trip Music: Please see the bottom of this note for a listing of the 20 songs we've compiled (with links to YouTube videos), and maybe most importantly a link to a folder you can download containing all the mp3s so you can listen to them or burn a CD from them. Hopefully you'll enjoy that the song order is something like a story of someone leaving Denver, experiencing the eclipse, and returning home.
8/15/17 UPDATE: Todd Kramer will allow a modest number of folks to camp on his ranch on Sunday night. If you want to camp, call Mr. Kramer to make arrangements:

On August 21st, assuming their Internet connection is good enough, we're going to broadcast the show (ending a bit more than an hour before the eclipse) from the North Shore Lodge on the north side of Lake McConaughy just north of Ogallala, NE. See below for picture of where we expect to broadcast from!
