  1. Thanks for a great share and a great idea. I love the observation that time stands still. Every year for the past 6 years my two youngest boys and I take a “guy trip,” the past few years being joined by my brother. It’s a very special time for us, and one of the few opportunities I make sure to unplug. I figure it’s making memories for them – which is what you did with your son. It’s been over 40 years since I was on the Zephyr, but I think maybe it’s time again.

  2. Brian Baker says:

    Great reminder to prioritize seizing these opportunities with our children whenever we can. Beyond the countless history lessons, these undoubtedly are the outstanding memories they’ll treasure long after we’re gone.
