    Connecting the Zephyr to Des Moines and the Empire Builder

    Exploring some alternatives to driving down to Osceola, IA to catch the Zephyr (just in case my primary plan falls through,) I noticed that while the timing of the Jefferson Lines buses would make taking them down to Osceola possible, the stops are nearly two miles apart, with no sidewalks for a...

    Giving Away Lounge Passes

    I grabbed a few lounge passes online with points early this year, thinking I'd use them on a few trips. Turns out I used less than I thought I would, so I have two left.
