stretch our legs down the main ave. - State Street - of Chicago. We had a half hour stop at Omaha, Neb. but I was fast asleep then since the train didn't pull in there until way after 11 p.m.

Riding Pullman, tourist style, is pretty good - we're certainly lucky to have such accomodations. The seats are not too comfortable during the day but at night we can stretch out & sleep. I've slept well both nights so far. Two more nights to go; two {m}days of travelling. We probably will arrive at Shoemaker around noon on Friday.

Meals on the diner have been adequate. There's a large draft of sailors on this train
