Check this out.. you can go to a lot of places on a train, and it's way cheaper than flying, so, why not?
I'm down with train rides. It isn't the fastest way to travel, but it is cheap and very easy. Plus, you get all the scenery of the landscape with out always thinking about the road. Pretty cool if you ask me.
I'm in DC right now. Just got back from a walk around the Capital and a few other monuments in the area. It's a neat place, to bad it's full of crooks and thieves.
Be back in MN soon.
