About 6 years ago, I was in between jobs and decided to travel across the country via trains
I started in Seattle - went all the way to Washington DC - and then back to Seattle in 15 days
It was something I'll never forget. Simply Amazing.
If you've thought of doing something similar - now may be your chance
