Dreaming of locomotives


If someone doesn't talk me out of it quickly, I think I just might book a train journey for this summer. Sam and I are going to California for my cousin's wedding in July (G has to work, the girls have camp, then afterwards we'll all meet in Utah for a family reunion) and my latest brightshinydistraction is the thought of taking the train across the country from Boston to LA.  Brilliant or delusional? I can't tell. 

We are leaving today for Utah to visit family and tour colleges over spring break.  Maybe as I fly over all of those cornfields and mountains, I'll rethink a three-day trip ch-ch-chugging all those miles.  But right now, I'm in love with the idea.
