My Train Trip

July 28th, 2022 at 07:46 pm

Oh dear. This hasn't happened for a long time. I lost a pretty wordy entry about my train trip and the visit to my son's home in Oregon. I didn't select and save it, so it's gone. So I will give you a really short version.

The vacation, while too short, was super fun. I spent only $100 on food altogether. I couldn't sleep on the train seats, so I'll never try that again. I would consider doing another train trip in a roomette.

When I got home, the electrician arrived shortly to complete the repairs. Total cost was just under $2400. I learned that the roof replacement is going to cost $3800. So I'm going to be really cutting corners now to replace my emergency fund.

I'm really tired, and glad to be home, but also glad I did it!

    Welcome home from your trip. May I ask why you are replacing your roof? Is your condo association not responsible for the roof?

  2. CB in the City Says:

    The condo association is replacing the roof, but condo owners are paying a special assessment fee to get it done.

    Oh, gotcha. Sorry to hear that. But a new roof will be nice. Smile

    Awww, I'm sorry you lost the long entry but I'm glad you had a great time on your trip!
