This is not an official Chasing Sunrise event.
There is no help or guidance provided by Chasing Sunrise Inc. on this trip.
You're totally cool getting to and from Oregon on your own and sorting out all the details required to do so!
Sometimes, something so rare happens that we have no choice but to send it.
This is one of those times.
On August 21st, a total eclipse that hasn't happened in 4 decades is happening... right in our back yard.
The details are pretty simple.
The spot to be for the eclipse is Salem OR, so we'll be exploring our way through North Oregon, Mt. Hood and Crater Lake, before making our to Salem to catch something that hasn't happen in decades.
If you want in, take a read through the details below and put your name down.
We'll be dropping more details next week.
PS. For a whole bunch of legal reasons, this isn't an official CS event.
Think of it more as an open roadtrip with a whole bunch of us all committing (loosely) to the same game plan.
We've detailed our whole plan below. Feel free to follow closely to it, creating a convoy the whole time or make your own and meet us down there.
