When I travel, I use the hotel computers to get into AU, and that is fine.
However, I used to be able to get into my Google email, too, from hotel computers, especially ones in places I've stayed before, but Google won't let you in now unless you post a number to your phone (and I do not have a smartphone) or answer a security question (and I certainly can't remember the answers that I came up with years ago, assuming I'd never need them). So I can't get into my email to have Amtrak send me a ticket, which I didn't think of before I left home, and the Amtrak conductor told me I couldn't buy one on the shuttle.
By the way, I finally arrived in the 20th century after a lot of kicking and screaming. And I am darned if I am going to go all smartphony and millennially and join the 21st! I also don't have a computer or Ipad or any of that stuff--just a lot of extra clutter to have to carry around--I travel very light. But it sure does lead to some inconvenience sometimes.
I'll probably just get the early CTrail up and then just ask them at the station in Springfield what to do for the way back.
A lot depends on the weather, too--it's supposed to rain, but not sure when. Didn't bring an umbrella, either, but that's easy enough to pick up at the CVS near the station if it's bad enough to need one.
Just as an aside, I'm glad to see the Student Prince is still there--my cousins took me to that about 40 years ago! It was good then--hope it still is and is doing a good business!
