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.

    oh man, Woodchuck is going to be so jealous all the woodland creatures got linked up by Manning and he was overlooked!

  4. I always get left behind.....It's always the flightless fowl and the cute woodland critters that get picked....

    I should look at the train for some trips.
