  • A Good Friday Day-Trip to Kalamazoo (by Car)

    Louise and I have formed a little tradition of trying to go and work somewhere like a coffee shop together when I have a holiday off from work for a long weekend when we have no other plans. Good Friday (March 30, 2018) was one of these days and we decided to take a day […]

  • Update: 2 Winnetka and 2 Evanston Metra UP North Stations

  • Driving back from Thanksgiving in Syracuse via Rochester and Erie

    This past Thanksgiving Louise and I drove (for the second straight year) to and from my grandmother’s house in Syracuse. Taking the Lake Shore Limited we’ve considered but in order to get a Roomette would be over $900 total and even going round-trip coach I was seeing prices of $400 to $500. With the price […]

  • Update: Crystal Lake and Pingree Road

    I’m trying to clear everything Chicago and Metra related out of my vast archive from previous trips. One main reason is that it makes writing up more recent adventures so much easier when I have the framework of stations I’ve already visited. This update is two stops I visited back on October 30, 2011: Crystal […]

  • The Manhattan and the New Lenox Metra Stations

    My first South Shore Line bike trip after I moved to South Bend back in June of 2016 consisted of me taking (with someone who had a gas powered bicycle that stank and shouldn’t have been allowed in the bike car) the weekend Inbound Express train at Hammond (still need up to write that station), […]

  • Pace Bus 802 to a Snowy ride on the UP West Line back to Chicago

    This is final section (part 3 or 3) of February 17th, 2018’s adventures on the the BNSF Railway and UP West Line. After getting on Pace Bus 802 at the Aurora Transportation Center, we leave on time but it’s a slow ride. It’s snowing fairly hard at this point and the driver is definitely focused […]

  • Getting 9 out of 21 Stations on the 5-10 Minutes late Metra BNSF Railway from Berwyn to Aurora

    This is the part 2 (of 3) of February 17th, 2018’s adventures. After getting off Pace Bus 307 I get my photo essay of Harlem Avenue–(19 Photos). I then start walking briskly down Windsor Avenue to Berwyn–(30 Photos). There I get my pictures and head to the shelter on the outbound platform. A man is sitting […]

  • Riding the Green Line out to Oak Park to start a Metra Adventure

    This is part 1 of what will be a 3 part series on my February 17th Metra adventures. This past weekend, Louise and I spent in Chicago so Louise could go to a one-day conference on Saturday. I decided to spend the day doing another Metra Weekend Pass adventure. Looking at schedules I realized that […]

  • A Drive through the Desert with a stop in Yuma

    Christmas I spent with Louise’s family in the Mountains outside of San Diego. After consulting flights the Mesa non-stop made the most sense for me to fly out midday on Friday. Louise and her Dad flew to Phoenix the weekend before (I drove them and made some Metra stops), driving through the desert we made […]
