You must add to your bucket list
I wanted to follow-up with you on the trip. It was really great. Everything went off without a hitch. The only part that I think we would want to avoid in the future are the rental vans. It actually worked really and is not very expensive; however it is stressful driving them in town. I'd like to try to figure out a better system.
The train to Seattle was fantastic. They gave us our own car at the front of the train, and it was a great trip. It was also an easy light rail/monorail trip to the hotel. I'd like to do the same thing next year.
The accommodations in both cities were great although with the flooding remediation going on at McMenamins, it didn't quite have the same atmosphere as in past years. All the floors were flooded so it was big problem for them. However, they did the best they could, and I think the accommodations for everyone were acceptable. I was actually going back through my emails from the trip yesterday and saw one that you had forwarded from McMenamins that said they were going to be refunding 20% of the room price as a result. I wanted to follow-up on that to see if it was indeed the case and if we should expect a refund check.
Thank you for all of your help on the trip. I think the students had a really great time and aside from some minor tweaks, I think this will be the trip we settle on for the near future.Dan Manley
