Like the Rocky Mountaineer, the Transcontinental VIA Train has largely become a tourist train for those who want to travel really long distances & see the country. It is therefore priced that way now; however, judging from the way that the reservations fill up months in advance, they have no trouble selling out all of their sleeping accommodation services.

Our fare for 2 includes 4 nights/5 days in a 2-bed cabin with all meals included. If you have no discount plans, the fare is ~ $3800 CAN for our trip - a bargain if you have US Dollars.

Contrast that to the Grand Canyon Train that we did out of Williams, AZ to the South Rim a couple of years ago. It was ~ $1000 US for 2 that included 3 nights in their hotels (2 nights at Williams & 1 at the South Rim), & 4 meals each & about 6 hours train travel time. Well worth it IMO, but I like trains, ha!!

So as quickly as it came, it went away... The client office that we were supporting in Toronto that we started at on January 5th of this year just stopped needing our support this past Friday. Just barely over 3 months worth of support. The client had sold the business, so we knew it was short term, but I was hoping to at least go through the end of this year so that I could utilize work provided airfare for the big bash in September.

Flights are currently looking like they will be about $710 round trip, plus the weekend cost is just a bit too steep for me. The weekend cost was going to be subsidized by any birthday funds I might happen to scrounge up, but I won't have any airfare miles built up in September due to family trips this summer.

Sad times....

This is really unfortunate news. It was great having you come up to Axiom earlier this year and would have been awesome if you could have joined us all in September too.

Nick, PM me and I'll help you re-sort through your priorities. When their college tuition bills start rolling in, you'll wish you had made more selfish choices.

(Kidding, of course. Sorry you had to cancel your plans.)

I can't count myself among them, but I KNOW there were lots of people here looking forward to meeting you. Again, kidding. There aren't lots of people looking forward to meeting you.

I'm sorry, Nick. It was the only logical punch line and I had to go for it. You KNOW that whenever I say something that baaaad, it's for affect, AND a laugh.

I'm sorry it didn't make you laugh. Sometimes, I forget everyone isn't Cam.

Damn! I wish I had read that before I went looking for my moral compass. I did find it. It was in the same drawer as the magnets.
