The Little Engine That Could?

I suppose the biggest story in this post is about the old engine that is travelling (at HIGH volume) to Alaska perched between Liz and Myself. There are some pretty impressive grades, that we have to tackle in First Gear at 10-15 MPH. But, we are making it!!! Sometimes leading a procession of so-far understanding
