Great call, Dan! The one issue with Eagleman is lack of housing options. Because of this, the local hotels and B&B’s end up requiring a minimum number of nights, which can really get add up when you are only a few hours from home. I would not wait on booking accommodations as there is likely very few options remaining. One option that you could consider (but probably not recommended), is camping. My understanding is that you can camp near the race site. Not sure you want to sleep on the ground before your HIM but for those late comers to booking accommodations, it could be your only option.
Do others have accommodations booked?
