We have lift off. I am safely aboard the California Zephyr bound for Chicago. Looking forward to crossing the Sierra today and dropping down through Reno. I’m glad all the planning and preparation is over. Let the games begin 🙂
Many thanks to Mike “Captain Chem” Carroll for getting up at 4:00 this morning and driving me to San Jose to catch the commuter train!
I have two books, three magazines and my Smartyphone to keep me entertained in my lower level coach seat for the next two and a half days. Then it’s a transfer and another day to Washington D.C.
Goodbye, sweet sunny coastal California, I love you.
Peace, Love, and Adventure,
