Morning weather lady said it was 50/50 whether cloud cover would interfere with eclipse in Western Oregon. The day will be warm sunny - it's morning cloud cover you have to be worried about.

OK, found a place near Madras and the SolarFest. Win-Win!
Thank you all for your suggestions/help.

Just be aware that some gas stations in Bend were turning away customers today because of no fuel. They said it would be at least 12 hours until tanker trucks would get to town. This could/will only get worse as the weekend approaches. Costco was running short of essentials (milk, bread, meats), and it is expected others will follow (especially Wal-mart and others that are along 97). 2-lane highways in and out of Madras for 100,000+ people. Please plan accordingly.

This is an interactive map in which you can zoom to street level to pick your spot.

I'm really not wanting to haul 500 lbs of water 500 miles. autorot8 (or others in the know), do you have any suggestion where to fill up on water near Madras?
