An open letter to Amtrak

Most likely NOT the train I rode on... it was not sunny or the day time.
Dear Amtrak,

I'm riding one of your trains home for Christmas. There are some things I don't like about it (inconvenient schedule, a lot of stops while on the train), but this has mostly been awesome.
  • First of all, I'm writing this blog while I'm still on the freakin' train! You could never do that on a plane. Ever.
  • Second of all, I'm drinking a beer. Which is Awesome, because I really needed one since I almost died about 47 times on the way to the train station. I know you can drink beer on planes, but this is a full size Sam Adams.
  • Ok, next- I can walk around wherever and whenever, no seat belt, no annoying flight attendants. My seat is big and I have tons of legroom and a leg rest!
  • I brought a whole bunch of stuff with me, too... Clothes, shoes, coats, Christmas presents, major appliances (you think I'm kidding...). No extra baggage fee or anything.
Oh!! Did I mention there OUTLETS at the seats?? Two of them. I could charge my laptop and my iPhone. Amazing. I may not get home until 2:30, but at least I can relax on my trip. You definitely can't do THAT on a plane.

Love, Megan
