The Great American Eclipse 2017

I know that there are quite a few fellow amateur astronomers on this forum. It seems a bit early yet, but there there will be a solar eclipse on August 21, 2017 visible along a path all across the United States ( Since this may be the last total eclipse, within easy range, in my remaining lifetime, I decided to go and see it together with my wife and son.

Airline and hotel prices have already reacted to the event. For example no hotel room in Casper, Wyoming - who has ever heard of this town before? - from August 20 to 21 can be found for less then 1,500$. Casper is ideally located in the middle of the path of totality in a region with predictably good weather, that's why. So we just booked our flights, rental cars and hotels along a route that will take us through some national parks an scenic places in the west of the United States during the two weeks following the event.

So I am just curious if other forum members will also go see the eclipse and if so, where, and if - maybe - some kind of meeting along the road can be arranged?
