So Lanna applied for the State of Now small towns event to be held in Hutchinson, Kansas even though we are 1700 miles away.
She got accepted.
Now we are thinking of taking Amtrak all the way cross country. Is this crazy? Are we nuts?
Although it does seem amazing to see the backyards of America and the beginnings of towns. Most 19th Century towns went around the train, around depots. I expect to see tons of corn, lots of wheat, lots of backyards, lot of town, lots of America.
Wondering if a sleeper car is a good idea or the seats will be fine on the 36 hour journey.
Longest train trip I took was from Chicago to Trenton, NJ which is still wicked far. Although the horseshoe curve is just awesome.
And I realized that Lanna hasn’t seen the corn belt at all, which should be obvious and massive on a trip from Chicago to central Kansas. There is nothing like a train to make you realize how truly massive America is.
To crazy ideas!
