If we can squeeze out an extra vacation day and get a decent car rate, we may do Gardyloo's scenic driving route rather than having to be at the train station and 0 dark thirty. We would overnight in Vancouver Sunday (doing that either way, train or car), do the leisurely drive on Monday, overnighting somewhere (probably SeaTac, already avhe a room booked for Mon night), sightsee in Seattle Tuesday and then fly home Wed AM (would need to book a second night hotel).
However, I want to go ahead and reserve the train for Monday AM in case the car rates are outrageous and/or we can't get the extra day. I just want to make sure I can get my money back if we cancel the train. We do have cancel for any reason trip insurance, but I don't know if it would cover this.
