Trains, Planes and Automobiles
I love to fly, for some reason it just seems right that a “flightless waterfowl” has logged thousands of miles in the air. I also like to travel by car (a road trip to the Mississippi River is coming up later this week.) But I especially like to travel by train. There is just something special about the slow pace, the rhythmic sound of the train on the rails that I love. It is also nice to have lots of room to spread out. Why have airline seats gotten so narrow as the average American has gotten wider? On a train, the cheap seats have plenty of room. Here I am taking an excursion on the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railway last summer.
