Day Eight: This Blog's Caboose

Last night the Empire Builder dropped us and two other Idaho souls off just before midnight at the Sandpoint station. We walked about 100 yards back to the faithful Best Western Edgewater Hotel, which we left in the middle of the night a couple of days ago.  Despite the strange hours we kept at this accommodation, I don't think they thought we were shady Mr. and Mrs. Smith types.  Indeed, they where most gracious.

Day Seven: West to Idaho

Pancakes were served in the dining car this morning at 8:00am as the Empire Builder approached Minot, ND.  There are 34 stops between Chicago and Sandpoint. A handful of these are slightly extended stops where you can hop off the train take a short walk, or try and find a newspaper box.  Minot is one such stop.  I scored three newspapers today at each of our hop offs: The Minot daily, The Williston Daily, and The Great Falls Daily, which I picked up in Havre, MT.  A different high school sports story headlined all three papers today, which I thought was cool.

Day Six: On The railRoad Again

We appreciated our time on terra firma, and Chicago is always a great town to visit, even if it's just for a day and a half.  This morning we had breakfast at the Palmer House and stocked up on famous Garrett's Popcorn for the long trip home. Popcorn, in various fatty flavors, seems to be one of the four major food groups here in Chicago along with pizza, hot dogs and beer.
