I was thinking about going, but was also wondering who else might be heading up that way? Would love to meet, have a cup of coffee, discuss some transit topics, etc.
I was planning to go.
Cool. I’ll keep an eye out for ya! 🙂

And FYI, you’ll only be able to look down from above. They won’t be letting anyone (other than the contractor) go down to the TBM.
ARG, I hope you guys can meetup. I’m a bum and totally slept in until just now! I think this last week has left me sleep deprived. Now I’m perturbed at myself. I’m going to go ride around on a bus until I feel better. 🙂 doh!
