Busiest Travel Day

Thanksgiving was a success. Many of the people who attended the feast are now on the road or are on rails. I had a fun time visiting the Salt Lake Train Station in the wee hours of the morning to put a travel on an East Bound California Zephyr.

The current Amtrak station is a cramped little box. Apparently, taxpayers are busily constructing a new multimillion dollar intermodal hub that will do the train justice. Hopefully, we will soon get commuter rail to Ogden and Provo.

In many ways, I think Salt would have been much better if UTA ran the new light rail along the corridor of the old light right which went past the old train station. The light rail could then turn into the city and go up to the U.

As it stands now, it looks like the light rail will have several slow turns to wind its way to the intermodal hub.

As for the shot at internet commerce. The busiest shopping day of the year netted my web empire $18.00 in commissions. Add that to other ads, and I made just about $30.00. Developing community directories does not pay enough to live indoors.
