There’s a lot I can do with a title like that . What I'm talking about is how much stuff I have lost since I started my trip.
Right Out Of The Gate
An hour or so before boarding the Lake Shore Limited from NYC to Chi I was waiting outside Penn Station when a homeless man started talking too me.
Leaving In One Hour
In sixty minutes I'll be leaving my home and will be gone for 18 days. That is the longest time I've ever been away from home since I was 17 in 1970.
But Will I Have WiFi On Amtrak?
That's the question which has spent a lot of time in my mind this last week. After all, I'm taking more electronics on this trip than clothes and what good is all of that if you don't have a connection.
One of the things I’m looking forward to on the trip is seeing old train stations. Most were built at the height of The Industrial Age and represent an era now long gone. As I start I have only seen Penn Station, NewarK Penn Station and Philadelphia’s station.
