Before I continue my posts from my train trip across the US, I wanted to take the opportunity to dedicate a post to apologizing to my readers for the three week (or so) hiatus in postings.
When I last left you, I was experiencing Seattle for the first time. Since then, I traveled back through Oregon, down to Sacramento, across Nevada, spent almost a week in Utah, went back to Chicago, and eventually made my way back to Massachusetts.
Unfortunately, during this time, outside of occasional (limited) access on my phone, I did not have access to the Internet. After coming back to Massachusetts on Aug. 7, I was at a conference in Williamstown, MA (with limited Internet and cell coverage), and away for a few days, and did not regain full access to the Internet until yesterday.
Although I was able to write most of my thoughts as they happen and save them on Microsoft Word, I did not have time to put them together in blog form until now. I hope that you can pick up where we last left off, and continue with me on my fascinating trip across the USA. Also, maybe my experiences will inspire a few of us to write to Amtrak and ask them to consider putting wireless on more of their train routes!
