Headed to KC by train

I am headed out to KC as I write this. I am to meet up with Zach and to try to lay the groundwork for the fights. I picked up the train in Kirkwood and the train was promptly an hour late. Now we have been sitting on the tracks for over an hour. Charming. Eh, 25 bucks and I can get work done on the train. They got outlets on it now. Not really all that bad for my productivity increases exponentially when I move. I got my to do list made up and I am pulling things off at a rapid clip.

The scenery is beautiful. We roll along the side of the Missouri river. Looking at it make me think of a time when these trains first arrived and even before they were here. Must have been amazing to see these lands for the first time as a settler.

Funny how things change. I sit here on the train now trying to hijack a wi-fi connection at each stop. Different breed on the trains these days. Back then it was full of speculators, prospectors, those wanting to put down new roots and those who have been kicked out of their towns. Now it is the elderly, cheap, small town folk. I guess I am seeking my fortune though. Now I just need to shoot some buffalo from the window.

I think I am going to try the "fresh" Caesar salad at the snack bar now. Er.
