My wife and I were in Indy for Gencon the weekend BEFORE the eclipse
and were driving home the day of. Yes, we did that on purpose, since
our 'driving home path' crossed the line of totality. We left in
plenty of time and got to a good spot several minutes before totality
and boy it was a sight!!! To see a total eclipse has been on my
bucket list since before I knew what a bucket list was. :-)
