    Just wanted to let those of you who are deaf or HoH know about this FB Group. We'd like to get more people to join and discuss our experiences riding Amtrak & discuss ways Amtrak could make our rides more convenient & enjoyable.

    Well, Ms. Blue, while you'll get some takers, but not this one, whose Amtrak riding is one ride a year (Auto Train NB).

    I actually was on Fakebook for three weeks during '11; "conscripted" a neighborhood teen aged kid to get me out of that morass - clean. She did.

    And why are you derailing my thread with your dislike of Facebook. There was no need to comment if you're not interested in joining the FB group. *smh*

    I’ve been on AU for some time, but thank you. Are you deaf or HoH?

    deaf/HoH. I'm late-deafened with progressive loss. I got a CI in January and still wear a HA in the other ear. I'm hearing much better now with the CI, but once I take these things off, I'm deaf as a doorknob.

    Edit: meant "still wear HA in the other ear".

    I was deafened in my teens from progressive loss.
