+1 but leaving the day before to the best wx forecast area and will spend the night about 100nm from the path.

In the air for me..
 
We live close to the path, so WX permitting( Typical T storm season), I will be heading into the center of the path , hopefully around the 10K altitude mark. My BIB will be camera equipped and hope to get some good images..I have already seen one from the ground, so airborne is a must!
