Tonight we are taking the California Zephyr from Salt Lake City to San Francisco. Â Some of our airline employee friends ask “why when you can fly free?” Â We said.. for Thomas (age 11). Â Well…. I was with them in their thinking and dreading a long 16 hours on a train when I could be there in an hour… a few days after making the reservation and getting closer to the time.. we leave in an hour… I have to say I am more excited than Thomas…Â
We procured (sounds Orient Express like) a room on the bottom in yellow, the family bedroom. Â We get two windows. Â We will be dark until about Winnemucca, Nevada but we are looking forward to the scenery going through the Sierras. Â We will keep you posted.
Pray for us as we venture on this train trip. Â Oh yea, we are flying home.
