Default Eclipse travel

Anyone travel a distance this weekend to see the total eclipse?
My son and I drove from NJ to Tennessee and are having a blast. And the weather report tomorrow is really good. (I can't imagine having done this to get rained out. That would have sucked so bad.)

It is supposed to be best here at 1pm with 90% coverage, also supposed to be cloudy.

According to Google, I won't have to drive far since I live in Ohio.

The eclipse will be 100% where I live ( outside STL). The trajectory goes directly over my house. With that being said, I'll be at work but hope to step outside with my fancy glasses

I am in the path of 100% coverage. Motels in the area are almost all full. I just checked hotels.com. The only motel that shows a vacancy is Holiday Inn Express at $999 per night. Eclipse glasses have been sold out at most places for a week or more. My local Chamber of Commerce had sponsored a car show today and handed out the glasses. There were 40 to 50 people in line for the glasses before the show started. I'm not sure how many pair they had but it didn't take long before they ran out.
