Me, if I'm still around.  I'll be 78.  (I hope to get to ND or MT for the 2044, too.)

If I’m able, of course! But I might try to see one or more before then, just in case I don’t make it to 2045 (that’s a long way off).

What about the 2033 eclipse  in Alaska? LOL..

 

For 2045 , I'll be 77, and hopefully retired somewhere close to Tampa so I can see it from my backyard.

That is going to be one hot ticket. The way Disney's pricing is now it will be part of the genie pass and they'll charge extra. The longest total solar eclipse in the contiguous US this century brought to you by the mouse house.

 

But yes it is going directly over Orlando and the central part of the state.

I'll be 76 and living in SE Asia by then, but plan to come back if I'm still around.

Got 2017 and 2024 (from the same exact place), so why not? Just put it in Google Calendar with a 4 week reminder.

Why wait so long?  There is another total eclipse in Alaska in 2033.  I'm planning on going to that one.

Doubt if I'll make it to 2045 but I'm seriously thinking Australia in 2028. Over 5 min totality in the northwest region where (I'm assuming) the chance of favorable viewing conditions will be very good. Totality path goes through Sydney as well.

I personally plan to make every total eclipse from here on out! Especially 2026 and 2027 seem very doable.

If I haven't reached my expiration date, I'll probably be kicking around somewhere in the plains of CO-KS-OK. The top of Pike's Peak may be too much to pass up, though,
