Big Beaver Skin

I ride the amtrak now to work. It is nice and roomy and they have power outlets at the seats, which is helpful.

One thing I do not like is their large ticket. It is unweildy and as large as an airline boarding pass. The only problem is that I have to carry it around every day. To solve this problem I keep the pass in the back pocket of my moleskine large journal.

The other day, after I sat down on the train and as the conductor was nearing, i pulled out my moleskine to get out my ticket. The gentleman next to me asked, "Hey, is that one o' them big beaver skins? I love those things."
