Sounds wonderful. I remember checking the Golden Line or whatever the hell Amtrak has to get you from Seattle to Boston and it was at least a hundred dollars more than that. And frequently at least half a day late. Talk about a company dying for bankruptcy.

But there's something romantic about the idea -- Jack Kerouac did it -- so I'll probably take one at some point, for fun and adventure.
