So after the disappointment of renting a car (see last post), I started looking into other ways of getting to TN. My Aunt Leslie lives in Jacksonville and is driving up so I decided to take the Amtrak to JAX and hitch a ride with her. I’m pretty excited about my first American train trip. I’ll be sure to let you all know about it.
I’ve also decided that I’m going to use my Best Western rewards points to buy enough Delta Skymiles to fly up to DC in February. I hope I can get first class even. The DC trip overall is coming together nicely. I’ve got a private tour of the Capital lined up with my congressman’s staff and we have submitted our request for a White House tour (we won’t find out until two weeks before).
