Seeing the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse

I traveled to Beatrice, Nebraska to see a total solar eclipse on August 21st, 2017. It was difficult to film due to mother nature being difficult. Fortunately the clouds cleared a bit and stopped drowning out the moon’s silhouette.

Originally, I was going to see this in Pawnee City, Nebraska but they looked even worse on weather radar so I decided to stay put. I was gonna film this at a parking lot in Beatrice however when the eclipse was about 20 minutes away another small storm cloud formed right west of us. It appeared as if the storm cloud would be right on top of us during eclipse time. Judging by the looks on ppl’s faces, everyone had the exact same thought. So basically half the crowd (me included) decided to drive a few miles south, barely missing the storm. This is the first total solar eclipse in the United States in almost a 100 years and something I’ve always wanted to witness.

Uhh… craigslist sellers

“I turned down a few people already”

I can’t stand craigslist sellers who steadfastly¬†refuse to sell to out-of-state buyers. Especially when it is painstakingly obvious that the item in question has been listed for weeks and they aren’t getting any local pickups. If that happens perhaps u ought to change your strategy and give distant buyers more consideration? To outright reject ppl like that is fucking stupid, especially when offering to cover ALL shipping charges.

I found an extremely good deal, haven’t been able to find anywhere else and pretty frustrating when you’ve been searching around for days.

I really wish sellers like this would just go away.¬†All they’re doing is wasting they’re time and everyone elses. I sell a lot on craiglist and I’d say about a third of all my buyers are out-of-state.
