After arriving in Denver around 2 AM Saturday, we discovered the rental car company overbooked our two SUVs; we escaped to our first Airbnb and dealt with it in the morning. A 15 passenger rental bus named Gus ended up saving the day. After picking some Gus up, we left Denver, grabbed some groceries, alcohol, and ventured towards our second Airbnb in Black Hawk.
Less than 24 hours after arriving, we packed Gus up with everything comfortable we could find (blankets, pillows, bean bag chair, etc.) and left for Mount Evans and, eventually, Wyoming.
From here, we drove for some time before reaching a dinner resting spot. After a few driver shifts, we arrived at our exit in Wyoming. Since the rest stop was filled (12 hours before the eclipse would start), we carried on to a gas station down the road, got comfortable, and slept for a few hours.
