    Piglet had a great weekend and qualified for the National Championships! Only 12 teams from across the country make it that far :) :) :)

    I'm trying to convince husband to let us take Amtrack (Chicago to Rochester, NY!) because I think it would be much easier. Does anyone know how to get a good discount? Right now it's a little out of our price range.

    If you are AAA member there is a discount. Usually kids are free, or 1/2 off for sure.

    I check weekly, sometimes they have some really good specials.

    When I've traveled Amtrak I rec'd a discount for my disability. Additionally, I traveled first class at a much lower rate because of my issues. Something to consider as kt & I didn't need to wander about the train ~ meals were served. We were waited on hand & foot to be honest & there was a bed that could be pulled out for rest.

    Congrats to Piglet.

    Thanks all! She is still smiling from ear-to-ear! husband has refused to let us take Amtrack to this tournament but agreed to let me take the kids to see my cousin on the train this summer -- he just hates the train :)
