Driving to the Eclipse!

Meagan and I drove down to the eclipse!  Then we took a road trip, Sunday we were in traffic the whole way from Minneapolis to Omaha, but we found our way to our secret sleeping location and we had a great meal and a wonderful place to sleep with some old friends.

There are not a lot of pictures because I had not shown Meagan how to use my funky cameras (I brought two).  The 60d is pretty easy to operate, and the 55-250 lens is a utilitarian zoom.  The other camera seems to have had some focus issues, but it popped up some gems as I am starting to go through all of them now.  It is an 8mp Rebel XT that I had plopped a 10-18 fisheye on.  The upside is you get incredible zooms, the bad side is when you are shooting out the windshield you see a lot of windshield.
 This is our travel companion, the dinosaur, he will pop up a lot in these albums....
Leaving Minnesota...
Welcome to Iowa...


Welcome to Omaha...

There was not a lot shot that first day, it was a lot of windshield time.  Alas, it is what it is...
