RVers Experience the Eclipse

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

During the August 21 solar eclipse, frequent Trailer Life contributors and full-time RVers Emily and Mark Fagan were boondocking in the South Dakota Badlands where the eclipse was 95.7 percent of the maximum obscuration. To document this once-in-a-lifetime experience, they focused a time-lapse camera on their fifth-wheel trailer and captured the two-and-a-half-hour progression from daylight to darkness and back in a 33-second video. To read the full story, visit the Fagans’ blog, Roads Less Traveled.
