travelling to see David, a sadness.

We live on the great plains of our country.  Northern Great Plains.  we are about 550 miles from the residential facility where David lives.

I wish we had train service between here and there.  The nearest depot to his residence is like 5 hours.

the last Amtrak went into Billings, MT in 1979.  With the cost of fuel the way it is, I wonder if they would reestablish it… probably not.

for those who recommend bus travel, my body wouldn’t do well sitting in one place for that length of time.

ah well, car it is.

the kids are putting every coin they can find into the piggy bank for us to go see him.  even offered their birthday money.

makes my heart sad that I can’t do better.  But my disability check only goes so far.
