Working for improved, seamless mobility in the new year

I know that you are aware of my advocacy for passenger trains. You might not know why I donate to this cause.

This is why I support the nonprofit organization All Aboard Northwest (AANW). Its 2023 efforts include:

  • The Second Annual Greater Northwest Passenger Rail Summit, to be held in Boise in July.
  • The 2023 Train Treks, where AANW travels to communities throughout the region to discuss the benefits of rail, and to hear the needs of local citizens.
  •, the Mastodon-based, ad-free social media channel to encourage thoughtful discussions of rail and related topics.

Can you please help with your personal donations and sponsorship, and with recommendations for other potential sponsors? Donations are gratefully received at

Thank you so much! I wish you the best of holiday seasons, good health, safe travels, and a wonderful new year.
