Yeah - normally we'd be knee-deep in TDIFest by now. Womp womp.

It's too bad info to generate interest can't be posted as a sticky in other forums. I know there are a lot more people who would have interest, but don't necessarily check this sub-forum. Would be a shame to go two years in a row with no Fest...

I took the pop-up as the hotels and motels in the area were sold out and still got 38+ mpg on B99 bio (refilled in Asheville for the trip back).

So I got my traditional annual long drive out of the way, burned a few use-it-or-lose-it vacation days, and got to see an amazing spectacle to boot.

Now, ... about next late summer.....

I flew to Chicago, then rented a car to see the eclipse. Drove to Marion, IL about 15 miles east of Carbondale. Carbondale was a zoo. Marion was much better. About 10 minutes before totality the sun was behind a dark cloud. But 3 minutes later, the cloud move on and we got a clear view of totality. Crossed of 1 thing on the bucket list.

Dave, it's a good location, for sure.......but, the reason Fests have not been held in major Texas cities in past years had to do with the potential for hot weather in August/September. And, the vast majority of club members are in the northern states.

I'd love to help you organize one, but someone needs to put together a Fest Team and get a location and proposal together.

Are you going to put together a proposal for a Cleveland Fest?

I like the idea. What's the weather like around Memorial Day (May 26-28)? Columbus Day (October 6-8)? The latter would give you a little bit of extra planning time. You'd be surprised how quickly May comes.

If the two of you could team up, I'm pretty sure more Texas folks will join in.
