Sounds like a fun trip. Hope you enjoy yourself.
You totally forgot Cush's house XD

Breakfasts, and lunches (and Amtrak coffee) are good too, well above what we expected from Amtrak prior to our first sojourn.



Oh yeah, some of it is simply horrendous. I've been using Amtrak up and down California and the west coast for ten years. First time to the east though...

Despite my numerous times there, it remains a fascinating place for me. As a history lover, I always found something new to learn or discover.

If you've not done so, contact your Senators' offices to request admission tickets for access to venues such as Congressional visitors areas and White House tour. The Senators will also have tickets for other free but ticket required events, such as the evening parade at Marine Barracks. Simply ask what they have available during your stay and be sure to contact both Senators' offices.

Enjoy your time there.

Cheers,

Thanks for the reminder Charles, did that first thing this AM.

You make a good point, Dave. When we were in DC, we had to come up with our own agenda, but in Abq, we had friends who took us everywhere. Got a little carried away with my enthusiasm. Just enjoy!

Joser and I will put some miles on Superdave's agenda - places seldom seen by most New Mexicans . . . or old Mexicans for that matter.
