I would prioritize duration of totality, clear skies and low light pollution over wind for this celestial event. I'll be in Casper WY.

Also, you should make travel plans sooner than later. Friends who are into astronomy had their airfare and lodging sorted months ago.

I'm keen to do a kite trip down from Kelowna, BC to Hood River for a week or so around the eclipse. I've been debating whether to try be on the water for the eclipse itself though. Hood River isn't directly in the path of the full eclipse so you'd need to be on the coast so I'll probably just find a good view south inland as it's only 2 minutes and I wouldn't want to miss it on the water.
