I believe that this is only my fifth trip on Amtrack. Many years ago, I took the kids on the train from Orlando to Tampa where we rented a car and spent two days at Busch Gardens. I know I've taken the train from Boston to NYC on at least one business trip, and this is the second time I've taken the train from DC to Richmond.
What makes this trip so nice is that there is power at every seat and I can use my aircard to be online! It's so nice to be able to check my e-mail, read forum postings, and even chat/IM with friends. Wish I could travel by train for all my business trips.
