Bego has Landed!

Well its official as of 2:22 EST. The Bego boys have made it safely into Rochester with all of our gear. We cant say thank you enough to these guys for the trip that they make, just to haul our equipment.

Last night the Heckmanns had a little time off, a mile high in the sky. Unlike last years trip, the guys got to Denver so early, that they had a few hours to get off the train, and explore downtown Denver. I never did hear back from them after they were supposed to be back on-board, so lets hope they didnt decide to hit up the Rockies game instead!

As for the rest of the corps… its seems like a LOT of people are traveling out today, including myself. I actually have a suprise in store, but I wont fill you in on that just yet.

Safe travels everyone, we’ll see ya on the other side!

Rockin the Rail

Finally the sleeping beauties have woken up, and blessed us with an update! Heres Matt:
“Update #2, We are currently passing through the heart of Troopers country, Wyoming. Went through Laramie and are on our way to a little town called spear. From there we’ll hit Denver, and it looks like we’ll have a couple hours to explore downtown. Ill try to post some pictures of Denver later tonight. Until then, this is the the California Zephyr signing off…”

Meanwhile, while the bego is getting some work done, the boys are enjoying a mid-west fav.
