Interesting story about this train. Back in the 40's it was used up in Skagway, Alaska when the Alaskan Highway was being built. At the same time and place my Dad was working on the Alaskan Highway construction. Made the ride much more meaningful for me. 95 miles
Day 6. Sadly it's time to head home already. We left early and finally got to our destination in suburban Chicago around 6:30. Took longer than expected because 3 semi trucks crashed into each other and really screwed up traffic in Indiana. 595 miles
First I want to apologize to all my blogging friends. I haven’t been doing much commenting or blogging lately. I’ve been in some kind of funk and I’m trying to get out of it and back into visiting with all of you again. Thanks to all who continue to visit my blog, even though I haven’t been updating very often. But like the title of this blog, I have some news.
First the bad news. Yesterday I went up to take another picture of the view from my blind. From the back everything looked just fine, but then I noticed on one side the zippers were unzipped. Hmmm, that’s strange. Then I could see the front was ripped and my chair sticking out of it. We’ve had lots of wind lately and it must have caused all hell to break loose in my little blind. I may be able to repair it with duct tape, but it did sit out in the sun, wind and rain all spring and summer, I think the elements got the best of it. I’ll be adding a new blind to my Christmas list. I know, in the big scope of things, this is hardly bad news, sad would be a better word for it.
