Re: Train Party to Reno

Well, I was hoping to avoid the extra distance to California, since that adds extra time to an already long trip. It is about 2,000 miles from here to Gerlach by road and a couple days or so. I don't know what those would be for negotiating from here to California to Reno. (I got fed up with AmTrak'...

Re: School Bus 101, long technical post

Well, I have, instead of finding a place to store and work on a bus: opposition from my dad for wanting to make a "poor investment" which is a "stupid idea." Even though he is my payee for Social Security I am trying to do it all on my own money, from other sources, so, in theory...

Re: AMTRAKATHON 2016 Is Almost Here!

Well, I thought about taking a train to Reno and renting, but AmTrak doesn't seem to go from Wisconsin to Reno, Nevada. It seems to be they expect you to be on the West Coast if you want to go to Nevada. What the----!? (Sorry about griping. I'm starting planning for 2016 in order to get these frustr...

Okay, so-- AmTrak doesn't do Wisconsin to Nevada? So rail isn't an option from the Great Lakes to anywhere near the Black Rock Desert unless you are a freight train. :?

Re: Train Party to Reno

I'm planning on looking into rail travel for 2016, only I am coming from Wisconsin. Wisconsin to Reno, NV might be doable, if I can stand AmTrak's online system and arrange for a ride from Reno and back. And the train is more or less on time. We really need actual railroad passenger service in this ...

The local radio station's Sunday morning sermons from various churches in the area. The churches seem to be doing a lot of Christmas carols this time of year, not surprisingly. Oh, and the sound of the fan in my air purifier and the ticking of the clock in my bathroom.

Close-- that was one of the reasons I decided yesterday to come back on here after more than months-- more like a year or five. This time of year up here in the Great Lakes area of the Snow Belt hot, dusty, desert sounds pretty good.

TPBM does not live in the Snow Belt and is happy about it.

Looks like things went great. Sorry I missed this (and the last 9) year(s). After spending the last 5 or so days really sick, I've decided to attend in 2016. Just in case nice time things are worse!

Now to go find the school bus conversion thread, and a place to store and work on a conversion.

Tequila is associated with the worst hangover of my life (in the summer of 1985) and I still avoid it. (Unless it really was a hangover I had New Year's Day-- I only had a couple shots, so I think it was something else. Stress release and/or migraine. It had some delirium along with the vomiting, sh...
