Travel across US by train for under $500! You can explore some of the most beautiful parts of the U.S. without a car. We are lucky to have some of the most awe inspiring scenery in the world right in our backyard. My parents recently made the cross country road trip and drove across the country. Personally, that’s just too much time
Travel Cross Country by train in a sleeper car. My parents and I came back on the train from California during major airplane strike in 1967. It was cool. I played cards in the lounge car with a couple sailors for hours and drove my Dad crazy! Met Jim Bakkus in the observation car - he was grumpy! Had fun (and took a couple weeks to get over my crush on "Ed").
