Excited for you.  Gotta love those long distance trips!  I'll probably be on a short little "hop" from the Detroit suburbs to Chicago in a few days.

And my 9357 journey just got even longer.

I got a call this AM that the TE is cancelled on the day I'm travelling. 

I was able to rebook on the CS/CZ combo, with a one night layover in EMY.

 

This will add to the mileage of this trip.

2438 on the CZ, 469 on the CS

 

2907 miles, 179 miles more than planned before. 

New total mileage is 9536.

Glad to hear. Can’t wait for your heavy duty report.

I was a commuter railroad employee in NJ for many years until 2002, and have since been a tour guide at Grand Canyon National Park and Ketchikan, Alaska. Also, have been a National Park Volunteer at Hawaii Volcanoes and now Sunset Crater Volcano near my home. If not on Amtrak, also like long road trips, camping some of the time.

Just did another two legs, for a weekend, adding more miles and meals. 

The trip is over.

 

The total mileage traveled was 10131 Miles. 16304 km. What an amazing adventure. 

 

Just to re-cap, the trip was NYP-MIA, Sanford to Lorton. STM-NYP-CHI-LAX-EMY-CHI-ROC-CHI-ROC

I had many meals aboard amtrak. 
24 in total,

8 Dinners

9 Breakfast

7 Lunches.

 

And yet, while now i'm done travelling, I can't wait to do it again.
