Ive been on this train since yesterday at 10am. So about 22 hours. Its been pretty shitty.Last night sleep was crap. Train food is expensive. I spent $10 yesterday and a turkey sandwhich and a pepsi. Another $3 on a orange juice this morning. Bummed me out so i decided to make it a screwdriver heheheh

Overall the scenery has been somewhat dull. But thats because it got dark and i couldnt see anything. But when i woke up to this norcal landscape. I kinda changed my mind.

If i do decide to do amtrak again. Ill definitely be bringing food and alcohol. I thought id be able to hit a vending machine but unfortunately the stops have been too brief.

Ive got another 12 hours to go and two more states.

Thats rough bud. get off in washington and take city buses
The city buses in WA are actually really great. In Seattle, they use a color-coded ticket system that repeats itself after a few weeks, so save your tickets and find out what the "color of the day" is!

When I lived there, I only bought like, 20 bus fares in the course of about 9 - 10 months.

i did the same thing when i lived in federal way. that was a few years ago though. i think they might have have switched to just the orca card though.

Yeahhhh, never buy the Amtrak food, its just a over priced convince store. Pro tip I just brought my own rammen bowls and beef jerky for the trip and they filled my bowl with hot water no questions asked. Also just fill a water bottle with vodka and or a gatorrade bottle with half vodka half gatorade drink and repeat.

Back on the grind of commercial fishing despite several years while being on a hiatus, pretending it was retirement. [everything is relevant, nothing is absolute.]

The recent post looking for a road dog in NYC, reminded me of the time I tried to convince @croc that hopping a turnstile in the subway constituted catching out of Manhattan....He didn't buy it....
