I did the SWC one way to CHI before, and then the LSL to ROC, so I've done some train travel. Just not this much at once.
I'm traveling solo this time, in a roomette the whole way.
So I'm either going to love it, which I think I will, or end up hating the train and never wanting to take it again. lol
