The Greyhound trip from Montrose, CO to San Francisco, CA is 3 hours longer than it used to be, thanks to Greyhound’s cuts and schedule changes. There’s a two hour layover in Grand Junction now, and two hours in Salt Lake City.

I don’t mind in the slightest. In both cities, there’s a great eating place with wireless within two blocks of the bus terminal. With two hours, that’s enough time to eat, relax, check email, post on LJ and chat a bit and actually have time for a real conversation.

So I’m sitting in a vegan cafe and coffeehouse, up the street from a punk concert, in Salt Lake City. My bus leaves at 10:30, and I’m just chilling. Life is good.
