Tuesday morning I started out on my grand adventure. Flew to Chicago via St. Louis to an announcement that my flight was cancelled, without so much as a sorry. Got crammed into a middle sit on a later flight. Made it to the train with 7 minutes to spare after a wild taxi ride through downtown. Got settled on the train and the conductor brought us champagne. Ah, how nice. The next morning I tried to fire up my laptop and it was a dead brick.
Flooding on the tracks in North Dakota delayed us in the middle of nowhere for 5 hours. No cell reception, not even text. When we got to Spokane, they announced that the train was so hopelessly behind schedule that they were turning around to return to Chicago. Well! On the bus we go for a 4 hour ride to Seattle.
We made it alive and Seattle is fabulous. Travel is certainly an adventure. I started out retirement by going cold turkey with technology.
This post is from the Cyber Dog Cafe. A great little place with good coffee, lots of old rock posters and knick knacks. I’ll get into details when I get the technology sorted out.
