The full and rare solar eclipse of 8/21/17 is a must see.
We will be gathering at Longhorn Ranch and RV in Dubois, Wyoming. This will be one of many ground zero locations for the total black out. As of this posting there are already about a dozen of us LOA'ers confirmed.
The park is not officially taking reservations on their website yet as it is too far out. They said they would start 5/1/16 with the online signup. By this time it maybe too late and already booked. They said they are getting full now. To reserve your spot in advance email them firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them your intended arrival and departure. They will email/call you back towards 5/16 asking for CC info to pay.
The rally dates are 8/19/17 - 8/23/17. Folks are going onto other Yellow Stone and Glacier excursions after and before the rally as that part of the country is a goldmine of scenic places. This is a "mini-rally" as they do not have a group area and the park could fill up kinda quick.
Here is an interactive map of the eclipse:

Go to the info and discussion page to learn more and see what your fellow LOA'ers are saying about the eclipse and their plans.
Happy sun staring.
** Update: As of 2/17/16 Longhorn is full. So I've started a waiting list for any cancellations. The park will let me know if anything opens up.
