At last we've admitted openly to being self confessed travel junkies and wanted to have a last USA hurrah with an extended public transport journey around America. At least an extra 5000+ miles of this journey are due to pressure from AU members, I think you call it advice!
It doesn't really have much of a flow as ideas were plucked out of thin air, plus friends here and there thought we out to visit if we were within 500 miles.
Should start February 2018 and end in early April. We've robbed our savings to do this but already know they're better spent now than when we're immobile sometime in the future, so here's the plan...
London - San Francisco - Seattle (Coast Starlight) - Essex MT Isaak Walton (Empire Builder) - Minneapolis (Empire Builder) - Lawrence, KS (Greyhound) - Kansas City, MO (Greyhound) - Denver (Greyhound) - San Francisco (Californian Zephyr) - Salinas, CA (Amtrak Thruway Bus) - Monterey (Bus) - Salinas (Amtrak Thruway Bus) - San Luis Obispo (Amtrak Thruway Bus) - Van Nuys, CA (Pacific Surfliner) - Los Angeles (local transit) - San Diego (Pacific Surfliner) - Tucson, AZ (Greyhound) - Austin, TX (Texas Eagle) - Memphis, TN (Greyhound) - New Orleans (Greyhound) but may change to the CONO? - Jacksonville, FL (Greyhound) - Miami, FL (Silver Meteor) - London
We're already booked through to Salinas, but if anyone sees a dumb mistake anywhere within the rest of it I would appreciate if you can point it out. The plan is a plan with padding at intervals. If part way through we change it will be because we think it's a good idea at the time. We like the idea of an outline but don't always stick doggedly to it.
This forum has been very good to us, so to try give a little back I'll try hard to write up some form of trip report if possible.
