Regarding the Jalama... ride. I'm assuming it was meant to say that you could take the train to Lompoc-Surf (AMTRAK goes by Jalama Beach County Park, but they won't let you off there.)

Hi Terry -- You bring up an excellent point. If you click on the trip name, you will find a blue "Email" button where you can send a message directly to the trip organizer to get this clarified.
