    You know traffic is going to be at a standstill on all highways during the eclipse. It's probably going to be a good day to take your ten during daylight and run night.

    We are starting early and than quitting at 11AM........get in a half day.....
    I have been wondering though? won't traffic be heavy all day? people going
    from their motels to their "watching stations".

    I guess we will have to wait and see....if traffic gets to bad we may
    have to quit completely......I can run back roads to get home if I have to.

    Missouri Hick BBQ is supposed to be pretty decent in Cuba. I've never been there but I hear good things. It was always crowded whenever I drove by and I either didn't have time to stop or some yahoo was parked across all the truck parking spots.

    My route takes me within a couple miles of the KC airport......I 435N and than
    I 29N to ST Joe MO. I bet that I 29 will be pretty bad from the airport north. I hear
    ST Joe is supposed to be the center in this area.
     
    motocross25 Thanks this.

    I spent the last few days in KC looking at housing. Everyone I made small talk with said "oh yea we're going to St. Joe to watch it. It's supposed to last like a 1/2 a minute longer there." So I'm afraid yes I think you did hear correctly
