From Libby on, the thought was in my head. Don't miss your stop. We're in steep mountains now, the turns we make are slowing us, I bounce back and forth.

Get up and shower now. A really funny thing. Good thing the bathroom is so tiny after all. I can't stand up for all the motion of the train, I use the hand-held shower piece to squirt a little water here and there, and laugh. And now the floor is slick.

Dressing in the dark, I hear voices in the next compartment there, they're stirring too. But Andrew hasn't heard a thing.

Get up Andrew! Let's gather all our things together now. He rubs his eyes, it isn't daylight yet. We cannot miss our stop! So come on down the ladder now. He stumbles down, there is no room to walk, the bed's against the sink, sit here and wash your face. The bed blocks the doorway too.

We manage though, we stuff our stuff into our bags and stack them in the hall. Daylight shows us mountains now, a lake, the trees in autumn gold, this is a heaven spot for sure.

Pull into Whitefish just on time. Goodbye train. We wheel our luggage past the smokers who jumped off to grab a puff or two. The smoke is choking thick, we gripe but love of nicotine stuffs up the ears and all the smokers ignore our pleas. Into the station now, I call the place where we will get our car. I'll be right there, he says.

It's a frosty morning here.
