Much Better Trip Than Driving Would Have Been

Looking at the weather as I rode the California Zephyr from Reno to Emeryville yesterday, I was even more glad that I wasn't trying to wrestle the Rolling Stone over the pass. Just outside of Reno near Verdi, a long line of stopped vehicles indicated a road closure near the state line for an accident. Based on my normal timing, I would have been caught in that closure had I been driving. Or maybe part of the accident.

We've been working on the logistics of how I can leave the RV in the Bay Area more often as a regular thing and "commute" back and forth by train. The RV does have to come "home" periodically so we can clean and resupply it, including dumping the waste tanks and refilling the water tank, but we might manage to make it only one trip in three or four that this has to happen. I'll also have to make sure that I can leave the RV parked at the Centerville train station for extended periods, which I've done before with my minvan when taking train trips from there. I wouldn't want to step off the train and find that my RV had been towed away!
