1425 Silas Creek Pkwy, Winston Salem, NC
Take a ride to Hopkinsville KY to observe the August 21 Total eclipse of the sun (Hopkinsville is directly in the center of the path with a full 2min and 20 seconds of totality.) 505 miles each way for a nice total trip of 1010 miles. We'll be traveling part of the trip both directions in partial darkness as the moon is eclipsing the sun.
Thanks to Thom for the info on the eclipse and the Hopkinsville destination idea.
