I'm Busting... Busting I Tell You

I'll be making a pilgrimage to the liberal/bike mecca of Portland, OR. Actually I'll be visiting my fiance, Ashley, in Portland where she is doing her last clinical internship for physical therapy school.

Unfortunately I will be flying. I originally said said I would only fly for a family emergency. Well... this kinda is, since we haven't seen each other in a month and a half. I wanted to take a combo of bus and rail, but given the fact that we only have a weekend together, I'm flying instead. At least I can feel a little less guilty because I'm not producing as much CO2 as if I were driving to Portland.


I highly doubt I will be posting anything for the next several days, but expect something come Monday on my experience/thoughts on Portland.

Yeah but the emissions at altitude have some sort of profound exponential effect on the atmosphere, compared to ground-level co2 emissions.

I'll drive you to Whitefish (Amtrak), after MAST, if you can dump that airline ticket.

Hey man, go ahead and bust, and you know, I would be surprised if previous commenters hadn't flown anywhere in the past year. Just sayin'

Lewis, how many trees will you need to plant to offset your ride?
I know a place that needs trees if you are interested.

I tried to take the Empire Builder once(between Chicago and Minneapolis), and it was sold out. It should run twice and day, and it should run faster.

The fact that I have to take a bus one of two directions to catch the train makes for an inconvenient situation. But, you now what, we're working on getting that fixed.
