    Lol oh no it is 4 lanes in most places but has as many as 5 when you hit stretches like San Jose to San Francisco where there is a commuter lane.

    I'll be in Nashville Nov 6-8 watching my Gators pound the life out of lowly Vandy. We should have an official WA meeting then, since I am already springing for gas money and hotel rooms. :)

    Yeah yeah, the Bay Area isn't some little region with cherry orchards :D lol. It used to be that way 40 years ago but then it grew.

    It's a great feeling to be in that last week of college, no more classes and soon it's time to pack and finally move to where one belongs :D.

    Thanks. I thought about doing that so I could start on a different degree, but figured I should get a job instead.

    It still is very rural and pretty up here in Mendocino County Shores :) In fact, much of the North Coast is still like this, starting in Marin County and going north, getting more rural and open and you go north. Lots of Redwoods, Vineyards, Oaks, pine, Madrone, Manzanita, wildlife(deer, elk, squirrels, a few Buffalo, tons of types of birds, frogs, toads, bear, lots more!), rivers (Russian and Eel Rivers start here, the Russian only a few miles from my house in fact), creeks, gorgeous coastline, the works! Gamer, Hwy.101 is 4 lane and 2 lane, depending on location, here in Mendocino County it is 4 lane from the Sonoma County line until just before Hopland, then it turns into 2 lane, then just south of Ukiah it goes back to 4 lane, it stays 4 lane through Calpella, Redwood Valley and Ridgewood Summit, until just a couple of miles outside Willits where it turns to 2 lane again, then north of Willits a ways it goes to 4 lane for a bit, then back to 2 lane just a couple of miles south of Laytonville and stays 2 lane through Leggett and Piercy, near the Humboldt County border it goes back to 4 lane. It is 2 and 4 lane in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties also depending on location. This would be an awesome place to have a meet, especially in the summer and fall, summers can be a little warm inland, but the coast is always cool, and the fall is just gorgeous up here, with all the trees and vineyards turning colors, and the smell of crushed grapes in the later summer/early fall when crushing season comes on. They call us Napa Valley without the crowds :)

    Or you can just make everyone travel to a place where there is next to nothing going on. This is the place! :rolleyes:

    I don't know of anyone nearby this place. ;)

    I bet there's more going there than in Redwood Valley, heck, we're not even an incorporated town lol Speaking of which, most of Mendocino County's residents live in rural, unincorporated areas (us included), 60,000 out of a total 85,000 population. Oh, here's a shot of 101, taken about 1/8th of a mile north of my house, it's the West Road overcrossing of 101, those large mountains in the background (north) are part of the Laughlin Ridge, and Ridgewood Ranch is on that hill, where Seabiscuit came from and is buried. That shot is from the CalTrans Road Conditions web site too, pretty cool.

    [​IMG]

    About Minot, great train watching there, it's on BSNF's main transcon between the NW and Chicago, sees about 100 trains a day, in addition to Amtrak's Empire Builder between Portland and Seattle (the two sections join/split (depending on direction of course :) ) in Spokane) and Chicago. I've been on it from Portland to Chicago, GORGEOUS trip, a must take! Oh yeah, and there are a bunch of Nuclear ICBM's at the Air Base near there, Minuteman III types, and a large squadron of B-52's, the other squardron of B-52's is at Barksdale AFB in Louisiana. A little FYI about the Buffs (the nick for the B-52's), there are appx.90 in active service, 10 more in reserve, they just completed a major overhaul of the planes (they are constantly being upgraded and updated to handle new weapons and their related systems) and many will serve until the year 2045, some will be over 80 years old when they finally retire, now that's what I call a plane! (The B-52, along with the B-17 are two of my favorite planes :) ).

    I'd be up for a west coast meet, never been out there. Furthest west I've been is Colorado and Utah.

    How about a meet in Vegas?

    I think it is a great feeling not to have anymore classes until this fall, but after I finally graduate, I am going to go and earn my masters degree. :)

    Good luck with your graduation and your move, ShoresGuy.

    Thanks ILUVSOCAL for the description of Hwy. 101.

    I heard that parts of it were still 2 lanes.

    The only thing wrong with the Empire Builder, is that a lot the deluxe sleepers are almost completely booked during July, when most families go on vacation.

    There must only be 1 pullman, I guess? :confused:

    Thanks. My last class is tomorrow and that's basically just turning some stuff in.

    I bet it's fun to take a train someplace. I've only ridden on one train, the Durango to Silverton train, which didn't go all that far.

    That's called "The Bush Administration is too busy sending money to Iraq and oil companies to give Amtrak all the money they need", I would urge you to write your congressman and the White House and let them know about it!

    There are a ton of Pullman's, more are needed though, the reasons they aren't getting them are in my previous post. As for locations, Reno would be much better for me, I can hop on Amtrak in Martinez and be there pretty in a few hours, Vegas is a whole day's trip either driving or taking Amtrak, I love taking the California Zephyr over Donner! :thumb:

    By that you must mean, "The Bush Administration is too busy spending money providing for our troops who are liberating tens of millions of people." Or you could just be a Kerry supporter and think that our troops don't deserve body armor or air support from F-14s, F-15s, or F-16s or Trident missile technology or Bradley fighting or Patriot missiles or Tomahawk missiles...the list goes on.

    I didn't say anything about defense of our nation, I'm talking about the billions of dollars and lives being wasted in Iraq, you put words in my mouth that I never said, not cool. You are in a minority that support the war in Iraq, most Americans are AGAINST it, and they can see through the lies. We have plenty of money in this nation to provide for Amtrak, there is no need to rob Peter to pay Paul, but that is exactly what the Bush Administration is doing, robbing our nations homeland defense, Amtrak, education and our future for a "mess of pottage" by pouring dollars into wasted wars and by giving money to those who don't need it, and none to those that do. Now, back to the discussion at hand :)

    We don't have a government run airline, why do we have a government run train?

    (I actually know the answer to this question, I just like having debates)

    It's a neccessity, that's all I will say :) Now, I think we need to get back to Larry's original idea, and come up with some more ideas on a WA meet :) Speaking of colleges though, my dad and I (along with several relatives) are proud Almuni of Idaho State University in Pocatello :highclap:
