I'm still going to Sault Ste. Marie. But I will be coming on the Ontario Northland bus and flying home.

Any idea where the yard where the tourist train is and how can I get there on transit. (I have ZERO intention on trespassing). 

That I don't know, but if you're still going up there and have time to explore around, you'll probably be able to find where the Agawa Canyon trains are stabled.

Last time I was in Sault Ste. Marie, it was for a football game at Rocky DiPietro field and I ended up with a concussion so I didn't do much the next day, just had breakfast at the hotel and rode back in the carpool so I didn't end up doing any of the other stuff I had planned.

The time when National Student Loans figures out how to address the issue regarding those that cannot remember their verification questions. To simply use a banking login and the info will be verified through there and to setup a new online account and password verification questions.

Except, the system locks me out once I complete the necessary steps saying "you will be unable to login for 24 hours. For assistance, call x number between 8:30 AM until 4:30 PM Monday to Friday." Of course being the Labour Day long weekend, if it doesn't resolve itself then I would have to wait until Tuesday morning. 

Really would like to stop requesting a form be mailed out to me every 6 months for repayment assistance. Considering that checking their Twitter account and there are already technical issues with logging in. When COVID-19 occurred last year and the end of the grace period, it took several weeks to get the form in the mail. Sending it back immediately and then asked for proof of income which somehow was given on such short notice. 

At least there is a resolution for those that don't remember or forgot to save the info for their personal verification questions. Two-step verification was needed a very long time ago which would have addressed the issue knowing that there are ways to crack that info. Hopefully the technical issue will end once I can finally authenticate.

After so much frustration trying to unlock my National Student Loans account, I finally was able to unlock it after getting my questions correct and then immediately shifted to two-step verification to avoid the situation with personal verification questions. Considering that if I was unable to access my account, I would have to phone in and get a paper application sent and mail it back within 30 days. Of course, if more information is required then they would request me to call and provide what is required.

Too much teeth pulling along with multiple calls to try and address the issue. Reminds me of the time when I got locked out of my online banking and being unable to verify over the phone since I don't have telephone banking setup, the only way is to visit a branch with photo ID to request a temporary password. Of course it is easier since it is a bank, but if it involves the government, it is a lot more difficult because they have a different process of handling certain matters.

At least I have my online access back.

It's Friday heading into the long weekend, there's nothing urgent or pressing happening, so the three of us in the maintenance shop were talking and laughing and enjoying a relaxed morning.  We were, until the manager stomps in and reams us out for the fact he can hear us in their meeting through someone else's microphone and tells us to keep it down.

The whole shop emptied out.  One of the guys disappeared somewhere, another went for a cigarette and I can tell it's going to be a long one, and I've gone and disappeared.  Way to torpedo shop morale.  Way to torpedo shop productivity.  People were happy and working until this happened and now the life's been sucked out of everyone and nobody's going to be doing anything except killing time until the long weekend starts.  Good work, Mr. Manager!
