I really wish train travel in the US wasn't abjectly, stupendously lame.

Seattle to Vancouver: $40, fast as driving.

Seattle to Portland: $40, fast as driving.

Seattle to San Francisco: more than flying, TWO GODDAMN DAYS.

LA to San Diego: $35, fast as driving.

LA to Santa Barbara: $40, fast as driving.

LA to San Francisco: more than flying, TWO GODDAMN DAYS.

LA to Seattle: TWICE AS MUCH AS FLYING, THREE GODDAMN DAYS.
