You have to start packing sometime. So what if it's the day you leave. Our train was scheduled to leave at 4:45 PM so we had plenty of time. Fortunatly for us we are getting pretty expirenced at packing. This year's trip had so many parts we are lucky we don't have any restrictions on luggage. By the time we finished we had 6 bags plus a personal item each. Good thing Michelle is getting old enough to wheel her own bag. We were all ready to go by 3 PM. A quick stop for some frozen yogurt and we were on our way.

We kept an eye on the train status all day since it can be late. Up until we left the house it was still on time. By the time we got to the station it was an hour late. Fortunatly the good folks at Anglim Winery took us in and gave us wine.

We finally boarded the train at 6PM and started our journey. Over the next 18 days we will travel by train, taxi, bus, monorail, ferry, cruise ship, canoe, bus, and plane. It will be quite

All aboard the Coast Starlight. A great way to get somewhere if you have lots of time.
