53 year old, been in the Coast Guard for 33 years retiring early summer 2019. Hoping to go to work for AMTRAK, but I figure at my age its probably a pipe dream. I've ridden the Silver Service trains about 6 or 8 times from FL when I was stationed down there to Fayetteville, NC. Just rode it up to NYC to visit my son and his family who were in NYC for my daughter in law's business. Also, rode the CZ from Emeryville to Reno during a trip out to see the same son. if I don't get on with AMTRAK I have a bucket list trip around the Country. I live in Wilmington, NC so my home station is Fayetteville, NC.
