  1. I just love your videos. I want so bad to take a week and see what I can see on Amtrak. You guys make me miss my ex wife as we traveled everywhere but never took the train. I do wish the had some sort of smoking car as I love to smoke even though it is not good for you. Well, thank you for your web page and your videos! Maybe I can catch an Amtrak from Houston sometime.

  2. This story brought me back a couple of years. I was turning 70 and had lost my job and the mortgage on my condo was way too high for me to handle on social security. I sold, gave away, donated almost everything I owned. I bought a ticket on Amtrak from Milwaukee to Portland. Drove south and spent time in Bend, OR. When I left I continued on to Whitefish, MT where I fell in love with the town and the people. I stayed there for awhile on continued on home.Two months later I Amtraked again on a round-trip to LA. It’s been a couple of years but I’m hoping I can do these trips again. I am totally enamoured with Glacier Park and would love to get back there while I’m still able. Thanks
