Updates will be sporadic for the next week or so, I'm concluding.

We did make it to Minneapolis, spent every minute we could with [personal profile] scrottie's family, got almost all the mats out of his mom's cat's fur, and then got back on the train.

I feel like I really struck out, this time, on being able to sleep in coach. The train from Minneapolis to Seattle was much quieter than the train across New York, but my body decided it was tired of those seats and there weren't many workable alternatives.

Ah well.

One of the sponsors for this year's Seattle to Portland is the Washington State Potato Council. I am an enthusiastic supporter of this idea. Potatoes are a perfect ride food. Even better, they had potato schwag at a boot when [personal profile] sytharin and I went to pick up our ride packets. So I am now the proud owner of a potato fanny pack and potato neck scarf thing.

It is good to be here. Hard to be at home and getting ready for a big ride without Dad, but I know he would approve.
