SO.

I downloaded the Wolfram Alpha iPhone app onto my iPod Touch, because they dropped the price from $50 to $2, and hooray portable nerdery! And I was playing with it, as you do, and typed in "next solar eclipse" as it suggested. Well, there's one this summer, on July 11, visible to the Southern Atlantic ocean. Then I typed in "Next solar eclipse after July 12".

Oh hey! May 20, 2012! That's 5 days after my birthday!

Oh heeeyyy! It's visible from the Western United States!

Oh hheeeeeyyyyyyy! The path travels over northern California, actually!

What I'm saying here is that May of 2012 will feature me traveling to northern California, visiting a town called Eureka, and then viewing an Annular Solar Eclipse with my very own (properly filtered) eyes.

There's lots of pretty National Forests around there, so I hope to also pay them some visits. I love forests. Whatever my final plan ends up being, it will include forest time, somewhere.

So yeah. I'm going to add this to one of the blank spots on my Mission 101 list.
