Re: Bumpity-bumpity

Yesterday spent hours in Powell's in Portland, Oregon. But Greg wanted me to get a Ben Graham book they didn't have. The mystery section was inhabited by plump middle aged and elderly women. The sci-fi section by skinny young men in grungy clothes. Stereotypes ruled.

Thanks Brat so much for the walking directions--worked perfect and the walk was nice. Only was drizzeling a little. Portland is a wonderful place.

Approaching West Glacier right now. Not as much snow here as there was in the Cascades. But clearly colder. Home tomorrow. Miss my honey and my doggies.

Re: Bumpity-bumpity

Sunrise in North Dakota, outside Fargo, a few minutes ago. Running 6 hours late. A foreign student from South Korea on the train is highly amused that we can't run trains on time in this country.

Re: Bumpity-bumpity

The daytime Powell's customers are folks who are free during the day... The evening customers tend to be professionals and students.

The path to Powells I described brought you through Portland's "Pearl District", once a rough warehousing area now under re-development with condos.* It is a part of Portland's plan to make the city center vital.* Streetcars, light rail, bike lanes and pedistrian plazas.* The city needed to replace the combined storm/sewer lines so this has been the perfect time for major re-development from an engineering and financial standpoint.* The going price/sq foot for those condos is stunning!

Every time the Amtrac budget is up I fear that they will pull your route.* In most areas of the world passenger trains are a vital part of the transportation network.* Not in the US * I wish they were important enough to run on time.* Have you ever taken the route from Calgery to Vancouver?* It was suspended for a time.* The ride through the Rockies is stunning!
