Well, we’re on our way on our 2 wk vacation. To the northwest. Nick and I (jack r) left last nite from Rochester ny, while gmom Rieger and jack mertzy left early this morn from Cincinnati. We met in Chicago, no problems finding each other, Amtrak agents very helpful. Spent a few hours in and around union station, and now on our way to Essex MT. Train left 215 sharp. We boarded early which was nice.
