    I wanna go, I wanna go!!! I wish I could!!! It sucks sometimes being out here in Colorado. if you do go, look into taking the train, Amtrak stops outside of Great America.

    Did AmTrak have any rooms?

    I know it was around 300 bucks to Nevada, but dived it up between all of us... But I don't know all the details.
    Just a thought/suggestion

    Thanks for posting the date Jedhed1. As for me, with Operation Blue Harvest being confirmed for that month, I can't say yay, or nay at the moment, until Operation Blue Harvest has a set date.

    I am pretty much down for whatever. I am going to be out of state for one month during the summer ( not sure which month yet) in Alaska. And I will be out of the country for a week or two in Montreal. But I can plan around the Great America trip.

    Amtrak between Sac and SJ is all unreserved and usually sells at the lowest fare. (check because there are dates that run higher fares) There are no rooms on those trains as they are usually only 4 or 5 cars, basically glorified commuter trains. You do have a lounge that does sell alcohol and food. If you get enough people together you can make a group reservation and the conductors will, USUALLY, section off a section of the car for you.

    Is that $25 per person each way...so we would need $150 for the 3 of us?

    I use Amtrak almost regularly. So I would be willing to participate in a group ride to Great America. In fact, I used to get off nearby there when a good friend of mine had been living in San Jose.

    Just wondering if April 22 is a good day for you guys. For us, the week before is our meeting, and the week after, we'll be helping one member move to his new place (he gets discount tix for GA too!). Let me know so I can bring it up to our meeting this Saturday.

    that day is good for me (I'll be moving too, but I think a break would be good). Let's see what the other Rogues have to say.
