Solar Eclipse

Total Eclipse 2024 Rally in Lampasas, Texas

Saturday, April 6th through Tuesday, April 9th, 2024

Hosts: Leon and Janet H.

Co-Hosts: Cathy and Randy F.

Co-Hosts: Barbara & Jeff E.

Please join the 4CU for the last chance (in most) of our lifetimes to experience a total eclipse of the sun in Lampasas, Texas.  As of now, 100 rigs have registered. There will be a total of 170 spaces for this rally.

The total eclipse will occur on Monday, April 8th, 2024.  At a length of 4 minutes 26 seconds, eclipse totality will be almost double the duration of the 2017 eclipse, and Lampasas is in an optimal area of the path offering almost the maximum possible time of totality.  The next total solar eclipse visible in the United States will occur in 2044.

The venue we have chosen is Texas Legato Winery in Lampasas, Texas, which is about 60 miles northwest of Austin.  There is a three-night minimum stay and it is dry camping.  Some flush toilets are available, porta-potties will be on site, and we are working on having a honey wagon service available for a fee. 

Anticipate eclipse traffic conditions but enjoy the adventure! Travel with stocked pantry and cooler and arrive with full water tanks for dry camping.  Information forthcoming to facilitate communication among attendees who wish to organize caravans or pre- and post-event excursions.


Venue Fees:  $500 total paid directly to the venue - $100 deposit due at time of signup.
