What About a Train Trip?
Now that flying is such a PITA these days with long delays, super-long check-in lines, body cavity searches, no on-board amenities, seat restrictions, re-routing, etc. I got to thinking about taking the train. Sure, it takes longer but talk about relaxing - especially if one purchases a sleeper compartment. Nice views. You can walk around to observation cars, go to a dining car for scrumptious meals, there are bar cars and other activities. And you can bring your pets too (although they go into the baggage cars). You have access to your pets and can feed, water and walk them.
You can even charter and entire car! Talk about a fun time that would be. Get a bunch of friends together - charter a car and head out across this beautiful country.
