The next one is April 2024. Hopefully we will be around to see that one. It will run from Texas to Maine.

I left Richmond at 11:30 PM Sunday night and drove to Madisonville, TN, south of Knoxville. I watched the eclipse from a park there. I left the park around 4:00 PM Monday and drove back to Richmond. I got home this morning just before 6:00 AM, really tired. Here are a couple of links to videos I posted on YouTube.
