Home From Colorado: Greyhound to Denver to two Local Buses to SkyRide to a JetBlue Red-Eye to the Q10 to the A Train

I’m back in New York! I had thought about taking the train back cross-county but when I realized Amtrak would be double the price of flying I just couldn’t justify it so only about two weeks ago I decided to buy a plane ticket on JetBlue. The final day of my Tennessee to Texas trip […]

Back to C. Springs via a Full Southwest Chief through the night to La Junta, and BeeLine Express and Greyhound Buses

Hello from Colorado Springs where my trip of actual traveling has fully come to a close (I’m here for two weddings). Wednesday began with me sleeping in a bit until 9:00 and relaxing in my room, having a disgusting breakfast of donuts from the day before. At 10:00 I go downstairs to check out and […]

The On Time Missouri River Runner to a bus adventure to a K.C. Royals Game

Hello from Kansas City, these were the rest of my adventures yesterday: After my last post at about 8:30 I decided I need a half hour power walk, and debate leaving my luggage in the first class lounge (I know that’s the procedure in Club Acelas and Chicago‚Äôs Metropolitan Lounge) but go back to the […]

Greeting from the small (maybe sofas a few leather chairs a single bathroom and a computer with a printer) but modern First Class Lounge at the Gateway Transit Center in St. Louis, Missouri. I have been really bad this trip for some reason about posting and I have a bunch in the works that I […]

My One Full Day In Dallas: Riding the Other A-Train, Finishing DART and the Trinity Railway Express

Last night I realized that the only way I was going to get the Trinity Railway Express done was by waking up early and getting the final four intermediate stations I needed during the AM rush hour. I woke up (nearly on my own) after a terrible nights sleep due to a man snoring and […]

The Bus up to OKC, the Heartland Flyer Back and Finishing the DART Red and Blue Lines

The morning began with me waking up at 5:30, showering and going to the breakfast room of my hotel at 6:00. At 6:30 I walked out onto the relatively cool streets of Norman Oklahoma to walk about a mile to the nearest stop for the 6:50 Commuter Bus for Oklahoma City. I paid my $2.25 […]

3 Full Days of Museums (plus riding its light rail) in Houston

For my first day in Houston I had a small breakfast of toast and biscuits (an item I had never encountered at a hostel breakfast before). I next went walking and ended up finding the light rail. The Houston Light Rail is the only modern one in the country (Pittsburg is the other, I’ll end […]

A Friendly Sunset Limited to Houston, Running into a Previous Amtrak Dining Companion

I stopped for breakfast which I ate quickly and was worrying about being late. Had I already had a ticket I wouldn’t of worried so much but I didn’t see a Quick-Trak machine when it was in the station. I rushed over and arrived at 8:35. There was a long line to board but the […]

A Full (Stomach and Train) Ride on the City of New Orleans from Memphis to its namesake

My day leaving Memphis I knew would be early, the City of New Orleans leaves at 6:50am. MATA luckily has quite decent weekday service but I had to walk south a few blocks since the first trip on the 2 would arrive in downtown too late. I woke up a little after 5am and walked […]
