Yep, I'm on Sprint wireless posting from the Empire Builder #8 in the observation lounge heading from Spokane WA to Chicago IL, then Chicago to St Louis with business class accomodations. I'll share pics later when I have some decent bandwidth. I decided to stay up all night and wait for the sun to rise so I can catch some beautiful Montana scenery.

Its nice being able to travel without standing in a security line for two hours, getting "special" searched by some homo, and crowding into a flying aluminum tube with a bunch of screaming infants. My baggage? I brought it all on with me so there's no worrying about a sloppy unionized bag handler sending my stuff to Alaska.

Awesome! It's like 1929 all over again! :D

Just kidding, but yeah, train travel must be so nice.

If i could go everywhere on the train I would absolutely do it. Problem is once you start planning really long trips the price starts to go up unless its a discounted route. I think when I checked on Tampa to Wichita it was something like 400.00 withOUT the sleeping car. You can fly there for 100 bucks, or even take the bus for a little more than that.

TSA Homo: "Excuse me sir, what you you have under your shirt"

Jesda: "It's all me"

TSA Homo: "Do you mind if I feel them?"

Pretty easy to drop 50 bucks on beer on the train.I have taken the train from here to Albuquerque several times.Trains are nice,but I hate stopping to pick up 1 person in every little shit hole on the way.They should put them in a bag,and use some kind of hook to pick em up on the fly.That'll teach em

Danielle... if you want to take a really nice train trip... go east/west

the north south routes are nice and all but they are more for moving people as efficiently as possible... my favorite train ride ever was a vacation in and of itself... took the train from chicago to LA... it was ****ing amazing!!!!!!

I HATE MOTHER NATURE! My train had to deboard in Minneapolis because of upper midwest flooding. As a result, a bunch of us were crammed into a crappy charter bus for seven hours that smelled like feces.

Thankfully, I finally made it to Chicago and boarded the Lincoln 307 to St Louis. I'm in business class and the comfort and convenience cannot be matched by anything short of having a Bentley and a chauffeur. And of course, I'm on a high speed connection with Sprint wireless, so I can stream internet radio and goof around on Youtube at my leisure.

Oh that sounds like a bad idea. Now you get leaky air springs on all four wheels and a gutless, oil leaking engine.

LOL! When Tanner mentioned "stop and chat", I immediatly went onto youtube and tried to find a clip from that episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Couldn't find anything though.
