Already Making Travel Plans for Portland

How sick is this? We haven't even been to Rosemont in 2014 yet and I'm doing my research on getting to and from Portland next March. One part of my trip is set - going home. Using my Amtrak Guest Rewards points for the train excursion of a lifetime after the Portland NMS closes. I'm taking the Coast Starlight from Portland to Sacramento, and then the California Zephyr from Sacramento to Chicago. It gets me to Chicago on a monthly meeting date for the Chicago Coin Club, and then Southwest Airlines can whisk me  home.


The Rockies in March! How sweet it is!

 As someone who lives in the Rockies all year round, there really is never a bad time to be in the Rockies. :)

I've been to enough of these now that I just reserve hotel space a week or two in advance and that's all I do to prep.  But yeah, when I was getting started (Coincidentally, that was Portland 1998) I wargamed the heck out of it.

 Really? Try living in a place where you have to go to bed at halftime of Sunday Night Football, so your Drass doesn't Ag on Monday!

Okay Portland is under way as I type this, I have booked my hotel and  plane reservations into Chicago.  Looking forward to doing more than just walking the bourse.
