Being in a (for now) cool, quiet, WiFi-equipped Amtrak lobby! We got to the MKE station early, checked our bags through to San Diego, and are just kickin' back and waiting for the train (with Quiet Car!) to take us to CHI. Then a quick lunch with a cousin, followed by a two-night trip on the Southwest Chief's Roomette. This will be the relaxing part of our trip. I'm also looking forward to getting out of this 100°F heat and back home to where it's in the 70°s!
(...at least 'til the Santa Anas kick in...)
