Nancy the Amtrak Lady or Smarter than a Computer|
Why, I'll be flying to Portland in late September for a garden writer's conference (in case Pete does not keep you up to date, I did finish my first booklet!). I'll then be heading to Seattle (briefly) and Victoria and Vancouver. I'm thinking of taking the Empire Builder back from Seattle (scenic! fun! trains good!). Mayhaps you and Peter can report back on your experiences to help me decide what kind of sleeping accommodation to get. (Because summer will be over by then, I'm not too worried about booking as radically early as I normally tend to!)
Since I will be testing two different kinds of sleeping accommodations, I will keep detailed notes. I can tell you right now that a ticket without sleeping accommodations is a whole lot cheaper.
