Ive been on this train since yesterday at 10am. So about 22 hours. Its been pretty shitty.Last night sleep was crap. Train food is expensive. I spent $10 yesterday and a turkey sandwhich and a pepsi. Another $3 on a orange juice this morning. Bummed me out so i decided to make it a screwdriver heheheh

Overall the scenery has been somewhat dull. But thats because it got dark and i couldnt see anything. But when i woke up to this norcal landscape. I kinda changed my mind.

If i do decide to do amtrak again. Ill definitely be bringing food and alcohol. I thought id be able to hit a vending machine but unfortunately the stops have been too brief.

Ive got another 12 hours to go and two more states.

Thats rough bud. get off in washington and take city buses
The city buses in WA are actually really great. In Seattle, they use a color-coded ticket system that repeats itself after a few weeks, so save your tickets and find out what the "color of the day" is!

When I lived there, I only bought like, 20 bus fares in the course of about 9 - 10 months.

i did the same thing when i lived in federal way. that was a few years ago though. i think they might have have switched to just the orca card though.

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
