Amtrack, Schmamtrack

Charleston, South Carolina, USA

The good news is that we made it to Charleston yesterday. The driving portion of our trip is done. It was tiring, annoying, sweaty, long, expensive and stressful. But, I'm glad we did it. I got to see some cool parts of the country and say goodbye to people I won't be seeing in a while. Well, goodbye and hello. I got to meet Hana's new 3-week-old baby boy, and say hi to my old roommate Thornwell, who IO hadn't seen for almost 10 years.

Charleston is a nice place, and Mike's got a cool family. It's hard to not like a place that doles out hearty spoonfuls of kindness and BBQ. Poker has been played, food has been eaten, beer has been drunk, and money has been lost. Good times.

The bad news is that it looks like we won't be able to get our train tickets to DC, since we waited until the last minute, and they're all sold out. We'll probably end up buying $200 plane tickets. We'll still be able to take the Chicken to NYC, but I have a feeling that it won't be the same. Oh, well.
