Wouldn't it have been easier to fly to Canada, rent a car to tour the country, and then fly home?
Nah, never. It's a grand adventure to pile 8 of us in a Toyota Sienna, and drive.
Tonight we are staying in Bradford, PA in a brand new Holiday Inn Express. Lovely hotel built adjacent to a supply yard and railroad tracks!
9pm: Engine comes down the tracks and links to several cars -- took about 20 min. Great fun for all the guests who were undoubtedly staring out the window. I come to this conclusion for two reasons: my children were all plastered to the window as the linking occurred; the Engineer turned on the light and waved to everyone.
Perhaps we will be spared any further locomotion commotion until tomorrow -- because that is when we are checking out!
Saying an Act of Contrition for my bad attitude -- really, everyone else thought it was a great show!
