Basically, I it was a tough sell to get my Wife (would that be DW on this site?) to come in the fall. I used the promise of candlelight processional, our budget would allow one splurge on a CP dining package, and a chance at Runaway Railroad during its first year to get her to agree to do our once every 3-4 year trip now instead of waiting until next year. In the past few days I have lost both of those lures and it has caused me to get a little down about our plans. I guess my post is really about not understanding how to get the most out of this festival.
