On the train to Georgia for a wedding. It's my first trip on US rail and I'm reminded of hitchhiking across South Africa for some reason.


  1. Expect to be late, Ryan. When I took the Amtrak to South Carolina, we were more than 9 hours late. It seems the train has to pull over from time to time to let the freight trains go by. Of course that was about 5 years ago. Maybe it's better now. Although it seems that once you get out of the Northeast corridor, time begins to resemble African time. Enjoy your vacation, B

  2. Actually, it went off without a hitch. We got in more than an hour early, in point of fact, though the train station in Atlanta is in a preposterous location.

    1. Great news. Maybe I'll try it again some day. B
