"OC" as in Ohio Central? In that case, I don't. I didn't go to the 'shindig' last year.

I've got a long trip planned out:

All of this is in sleepers and all on my own tab. Pretty good considering I'm only 16 and Im going alone for almost 13 nights. Almost 10 000 Kilometres or 6213 miles.

Me, I'll just jump around all of NJ and gather photos that is when I have time to. Who knows, if I am really feeling adventurous, I may even go up to Port Jervis.

This summer I took the Three Rivers from Fostoria, Oh to Chicago, Then the California Zephyr to Denver and the return trip. Some great times. I'll definately ride Amtrak again although my dad hated the lateness.

Well I guess Summer is over, so how was your summer? In one word, Great. I headed down to Railcamp in Scranton, PA and after went south to photograph CSX/NS/Strasburg and I was also able to get a little Metro-North and NJT as well.

All in All a good three months, lookin foward to next June.
