You'd never find a place to stay this late in the season if you did.

All the state parks in the path are already booked (most were booked a year in advance) and hotels/motels/etc. have been gouging customers.

I think Ding has shirttail relatives in the Bend/Redmond area. But then, they may have sold out their spare floor space and back yard already, too.
I have places I can stay, that isn't the problem. It is the time and expense of getting there. The land area affected by a total eclipse is massive, so finding a spot to be in the umbra isn't a problem. We can just pull off a highway or side road somewhere.
