I have to say that I have the bestest friends EVER...I may have not met them personally, but been Twitter/Facebook friends for over 2 1/2 years & they have my back on getting transportation to Chicago if Amtrak continues to shut down after the 14th.
Not only was I freaking about the Amtrak situation, I was also (before train situation) freaking out about the flood going on at the "Mighty Mo" a.k.a. Missouri River. The river is getting so high that one day soon or later, it will breach the levees and get over the dikes, and then water will swarm to my neighborhood. When? Don't know...no body knows.
But back to Chicago. I looked into buses, planes, and my dad even said he would drive me, but I just hope it doesn't end up being one of those. I just pray that Amtrak will keep their word for the 15th. My trip is one week away as of this morning. I will get to Chicago and meet my WONDERFUL friends no matter what it takes. I love them dearly.

    I will not be taking the plane or the bus, my Dad insisted on taking me. He will hang out in the burbs where he grew up.

    Thanks! I did look into that. That is one of my options.
    1. Amtrak
    2. Megabus
    3. Greyhound
    4. my Dad
    5. Plane

    Do you know if there is a round trip? It only gave me the option of one way. Just in case I won't be able to get back to Omaha on Amtrak, the flood may get worse by then.

    If worse comes to worse there is the Megabus for cheap transportation Des Moines to Chicago if you could make it to Des Moines.
