AMTRAKathon is no longer

The final ride was January 2020. It was a great run, but it's over now. There will not be an AMTRAKathon 2021.

Trust me Sham, I know, I know. But if people want to (on their own dime and effort) go to Reno for a party, dial me in. I'm actually considering taking the train out of Colfax (that way I can return via Greyhound) and enjoy the scenery. Oh, and the liquor. And leave my tuxedo at home.

I enjoyed my first Amtrakathon last year. Thanks, Doc, for the Reno mid-Winter regional!

I wish I’d had the free time to do that.
I didn’t use to have nearly the available time off I do now.
I’m sure there will be future adventures.

I remember last winter thinking to myself "that sure looks like a lot of fun I'll definitely have to do that in 2021". :cry:

Sad to see the end of Amtrakathon. :(
I had some good times in Reno with you folks!

Ratty gave me a mutated stuffed lion (at my last Amtrakathon), whom I call Road Kill, who has been to at least 2 Burns and loves going camping all over AZ with me. Just seeing him reminds me of the fun of Amtrakathon and of my dear friend, Ratty.
