Pony Express Station

For seven years I worked as a bike messenger.
So I feel a connection to the Pony Express.
The pay was about the same.

I stopped in at an original Pony Express station in Gothenburg, Nebraska.
Well, sorta original.
It had been moved a few times.

It was a small wooden cabin.
They probably did a lot of sorting.
And then they were off.
I guess it would be like visiting "the base" at my messenger company.
It's just a room where the dispatcher yelled.
The stories all happened outside of the office.
Which is the allure of that kind of work.

But if you want to visit it, it's at 449 N Union in Chicago.
Only it's not there anymore.
They moved.
