The Turkey Eclipse trip was dedicated to the memory of Ken Willcox, who led us on so many successful eclipse adventures. Our Turkish Adventure pages are in memory of all the people in Turkey who lost their lives in the earthquake following the eclipse. While we experienced 45 seconds of the earthquake, at our location it had lessoned to a 3.5. Thousands of others to our north were not so lucky.

A Limited number of Special Eclipse Souvenirs are now Available from both Romania & Turkey.
Plus, we have Eclipse T-shirts and prints available for everyone!
