Hi all. Some of you may remember me from years past, some may wish to not remember me but that’s fine! Anyway, I’m glad to see the site is still up and running and current and productive, after a few years away, myself. These days, I still mostly dream about taking Amtrak again - it won’t be a reality for me until things calm down considerably, aka vaccine well in place, etc. But oh how I’ve dreamed of taking those LD trains again as I did a few years back. I have to admit that some of the most peaceful, meditative moments of my life occurred in a roomette somewhere in the great expanse of either the SWC, EB, or CZ routes. Nature and me, alone through a large picture window. I was scheduled to take SWC to CA in late March 2020 but had to cancel it due to the virus, so I’d just about made it back to trains in time before the world fell apart. But I still am hopeful for the day when I can feel safe booking this again. I miss the train so much! Hoping my friends from before, here, are well, and that Amtrak will benefit from the new administration coming up. For now, remembering those awesome trips is about the best I’m going to get. Peace to all.
