The Great Eclipse Trip

Experience this once in a lifetime event to view a total solar eclipse lasting 2 minutes and 37 seconds!  The closest viewing location for us is eastern Nebraska and the eclipse takes place on Monday, August 21 just after 1 p.m.  We’ll depart the Twin Cities on Saturday headed to western Iowa. There we’ll stay overnight in Sioux City along the Missouri River and the next day enjoy a drive through the Loess Hills National Scenic Byway (visitloesshills.org). Sunday night we’ll stay in Lincoln, Nebraska, a vibrant university town.  Monday morning we’ll head south to position ourselves directly beneath the solar eclipse path for maximum viewing time. It will be a trip you won’t soon forget.  Read more about the eclipse at GreatAmericanEclipse.com

When:  Saturday, August 19 thru Tuesday, August 22 (could arrive back in the Twin Cities late Monday, August 21, if desired)

Where:  Departs from a South Metro location to be determined later

Various lodging options have been arranged for the trip.  After you book your general registration on MotorsportReg, you also need to make your hotel reservations.
