Today I picked up tickets for Pond Filk. I'm not quite sure why I am going except it makes for a good excuse to take a cross country train trip in a sleeper car. I will be riding the Empire Builder on the way out and Peter will come with me on the way back. A two day trip each way.
Oh, and you are allowed to make high-jacking jokes at a train depot without security guards jumping you. I commented that I hoped my train wouldn't get high-jacked to Cuba. The ticket agent instantly replied that she would rather be high-jacked to Hawaii. I think I will enjoy this trip.
By the way, what ever happen to the high speed trains of tomorrow?
