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.

First Post!

Shadoweyes Blog is off and running. For those who are used to seeing a different, I've been meaning to set up this blog for a long time and I finally got it off the ground.

My photo galleries will be back, in late August I hope after I take some time to vacation and celebrate Russ and Lisa's wedding.

In the meantime, I plan on updating this blog from the road with my thoughts from Seattle and Hawaii. We'll see how that goes.

As for now, I'm thrilled that the Tour de France is finally over because I'll now have an extra 3 hours in each day I don't spend glued to the TV. Well done Lance - you are amazing, but my heart goes out to Voeckler who demonstrated the power of the yellow. Voeckler captured the yellow early and defied everyone by holding it for 10 days -- 3 days longer than anyone thought possible. Lance was expected, Voeckler was a pleasant surprise.
