I think you would be hard pressed to find darker skies than West Virginia, I could not see my car from 10 feet away. I guess the ocean would beat that (it does) but you have to enlist for 4 years and the accommodations are worse than Federal Prison. Chiefland is about a 13 hour haul from here if I recall. I lived south of there and it is one long BORING drive. I have heard good things about Staunton River but if the weather is bad I have heard it described as being like a civil way reenactment of Andersonville.

is there still a Chiefland Star Party? I went to one many years ago (2002) and enjoyed it very much. As you say, it is a long haul from Virginia.
