OK, since I have no idea when my motorcycle will be back to normal, I have been checking out alternative modes of transportation.
Do I want to rent/buy a car? Not Really...
Would I go by train or bus? Yes sir!
Here is my potential itinerary for 3 weeks. It's WAY too heavy, I will have to cut some cities out... but this would be ideal anyhow:
With some preliminary research, this is the trip I could take with the 45 day/18 segment Amtrak rail pass for $749... The people I want to meet in each city so far are in brackets.
California (Kit, Seth, Vanae, Philip, Dawn) (can visit up to three cities in Cali)
If anyone is interested in this speak up! You can come for all or part of it, I think it would be great.
