I threw in the towel today on my next Amtrak expedition and booked an airline ticket home. Faced with delayed inbound trains and recurring mudslides on the Hi Line, I've opted to scratch my pending Empire Builder trek and instead fly back to Milwaukee. Trains Magazine correspondent Justin Franz is sticking with the train, though, to return to Montana. I just wasn't thrilled with the prospect of a possible bus bridge en route, a many-hours-late arrival in the Cream City, or both. (I am, however, thrilled with my hotel in Portland tonight. A great view looking down at the MAX light rail!) Which one of us made the "right" call? Stay tuned...
