First welcome to our beautiful land.
Second I completly understand that you come out of a love of science and natural wonder.
Thirdly I am well aware that ALL of the inns, hotels, motels, campsites, bed and breakfasts, and air B&B are full and that RVs are wonderful options.
Fourthly I am grateful that those several dozen RVs on the looooooooooooooong road I drove today chose to drive at safe speeds up the mountain passes.
But please understand that today you were all minions of the traffic gremlins who for the past five years have prevented me from making a very specific scientific delivery on time.
Previous years culprits have included Google maps fails, nails in tires, changes in housing inspection regulations, and keys left in pants.
The gremlins are clever, very clever.
Oh, and Fifth, remember to get properly certified eclipse glasses.
