seeking knowledge and laughter, putting a bullseye on inaccuracy

On to Lynden

Vacation is upon me...departed Tuesday night from St Paul on the amtrak and arrived in Seattle Thursday morning. Second time on the Empire Builder route - I still like it. Saw a little black bear wandering the tracks by Glacier National Park - looking for a freight to hop perhaps.

In Seattle I realized that all Greyhound stations are built to hold 1/3 as many people as will be inside during non-rush hours. Seriously - I have yet to have a bad experience on a greyhound bus. All bad experiences occur waiting to board.

Met some cool folks aboard, one from my little corner of St Paul and who had a lake house just south of Andrea's (my girl-friend) hometown. He helped us figure out what bus was right for us.

Then on to Lynden - just south of Canada border near Bellingham Washington. Nice place, good ice cream. Time for some sleep soon after nearly 48 hours of travel.
