Train Hopping

So in the Summer of 1991 we ticked one of those all American pastimes off our list of things to do, Train Hopping! We rode a freight train from Vancouver Washington through the night to Pasco in Eastern Washington. Once there we jumped off waited a few hours for a train running in the opposite direction then jumped on & headed back to Vancouver! All told about a 20 hour trip with very little sleep but a great adventure.

The Tree is up!

So we got the Christmas tree up & decorated today. All those lovely traditional customs of dragging a tree that's far to wide through a door frame that's way too narrow. Spending what seems like an eternity getting it to stand up straight and not lean in one direction or the other. Then Finally painstakingly checking mini light after mini light looking in vain for the one that is causing half the light string not to light up before finally giving up & going to the store to buy new lights! I love it really :^)...

September 1986 my friend Phil & I took a month long 6000 mile trip around all the Western states of America in a 1974 Toyota Corona. Finally got around to scanning those 25 year old plus slides into the pc!
