William’s journey was a success! Not only did he get to Portland via public transit, he got as far as Salem, Oregon!

As mentioned in the last update, William took the Amtrak home. He said the train ride was fun, especially since the rail line weaves back and forth with the I5, so he passed a lot of familiar places – places he had passed on his ride down on the bus.

Here's a photo of the schedules and tickets I've amassed on this trip. My bag definitely got progressively heavier as I got closer to Portland. - William
