2024 Path of Totality is right over my place in Fort Worth, but the best part is it is right over my cabin in northern Arkansas. Barring unforseen lack of breath I will be in Arkansas and rent my house in Fort Worth for a gazillion dollars a night, three night minimum.

My family owns a few acres on the path in northern Arkansas. PM me in 6 years, I am sure we can accommodate a few sprinters on the property.

It's actually about as valuable as any fiat currency. I'm going to have to hold onto these because I'm sure I'm going to need them.

Not sure about bitcoin. What happens if the entire electrical grid is hacked or destroyed by EMP?

Gold Will always be supreme.
