Hi Jacy               Any size frome 24 to 36 are fine and they wont say no to any size someone would take the time and love to make for the babies. My grandaughters have learned so much by making quilts for babies that we are still doing them this year we usually change our service project each year but not this year. Well that is not totaly true we are saving coupons for dog and cat food that we can get for under $1 and then when we go shopping we get pet food for WAIF. Well need to read the rest of the posts and lay down for a while again. Look forward to seeing you and everyone again soon.       Lisa

would spend Saturday night in Seattle and arrive in Wenatchee Sunday night.  

maggie,

If you get off the train in Wenachee you will have gone too far. The train stops at Leavenworth first. at 8:00 P.M.

What kind of baggage restrictions do they have in Maine?

Nana,

no checked bag service and I'm only allowed two bags total. 50lbs or less. 

There is a stop in chicago and it would be cool if we could ride together. My only trouble would be the time off from work issue as I would need more than a week off for the travel time.

I don't have checked bag service either.  And 2 bag limit but I can do that.   Look at all I managed to pack into one suitcase coming by plane.  It would be awesome to travel together from Chicago.

Wendy,  I would be going from AZ to California, Oregon, and then into Washington on the way there (I think) and then coming back I wouldtake the northern route (party train with Nana and Kris)  to Chicago then back to Flagstaff.     I would be making one big circle aroud the U.S.   Doesn't look like the 15 day rail pass has a senior discount or I would consider that.

What Wendy wants you to know is that when coming to Leavenworth from Seattle the Leavenworth stop is before you get to Wenatchee.   If you go all the way to Wenatchee you have went too far.

Ooooooooooooooooooooh.  For some reason I thought the train didn't stop in Leavenworth on the Northbound/eastbound leg.    Thank you both for letting me know, I woulda been in deep  u-no-what.    Good thing I'll have my smart phone with me -- the GPS will help to find me when I get lost.  

When I went to Missouri by myself I got off the train in Kansas City and rented a car to get to Lee's Summit (was cheaper than a cab or shuttle) only problem was they had no maps so one of the employees gave me written directions.   Somehow I made it with only one wrong turn. 

How long is your layover in Chicago on the way home?  Looks likethe train gets in about 4 p.m. but my train to Flagstaff leaves at 3:00 so will spend the night in Chicago.

Nana, that's great.  I have one each way.   Can't see spending 20+ hours in a train station, although it would make it a lot easier to sleep the rest of the trip LOL

Wendy, I don't know if I said thanks for the info before, but thank you (again if I didn't)  

  If I remember right last year you stayed overnight in Seattle within walking distance of  the Amtrak Station -- do you remember which hotel it was?    I'm going to make all my reservations in the next couple of weeks.

I stayed at the red roof inn outside the airport. and road the light rail into the city. I got off the light rail  right across the street from the the station.  I do not know of any hotels right there. I do not know the area well enough. Maybe some of the other gals who live there can help you with a hotel. sorry.

Thanks Wendy and Gini.    I thought Wendy had stayed near the train station.  Since I'll be coming in on Amtrak and going back out the next day I'd want to be close there.  Does anyone know the part of town where Amtrak is?  

On my way home I'll be going through Chicago and have an overnight layover there too but I think I found a Holiday Inn that is less than half a mile from Union Station.
