Our vacation trip officially begins on August 23. We wanted to stay home in Tennessee for the solar eclipse on August 21 as we are in the direct path of the complete eclipse, a once in a life-time event.
August 22, the pets go to sitters and we pick up a rental car. My sister from St. Louis will join us on the first leg of the trip as she will be visiting to see the eclipse and take in a few activities in our area. Early on August 23, the car will be packed and we will head north to start our adventure.
