Donald, the whole setup sounds as if someone could get "kilt" on it. At least promise that you'll wear the official harness underneath. I've heard terrible stories ...

That's not far enough away - I think Petoskey is the near boundary.

Picture of official harness is at post 1375, it has been approved by Zip Line engineers, hat is of course optional.

So, after spending several hours creating a new countdown thread and transferring all the "countdown bloat" to it, now I see there are more Zipline posts than countdown posts.

Our way of entertaining ourselves until the itinerary comes out...

There have been a couple of complaints about lack of the itinerary for the Solar Eclipse rally - which is two weeks after Goshen.

FYI - The itinerary, I am pretty sure, for the Solar Eclipse is, well, the eclipse.

At Sweetwater KOA, TN on August 21st, lunar transit starts at 1:03:59PM at the 1:30 position on the sun's disk.

Totality occurs at 2:32:35 and lasts for 2 minutes 37 seconds

Pot Luck drinking occurs whenever you arrive, until whenever you leave.
