I'm on a train!

I'm on the Pacific Surfliner at Van Nuys station as I write this. I'm on the first leg of my trip up to San Luis Obispo to watch a burlesque troop called SLO Tease put on a show. Why? Because one of the dancers, Crocodile Tears, is doing a sword dance to the tune of "Hey There Cthulhu"! :)

Taking the train is awesome. Free muffins! Free coffee! Free snacks!

FREE WINE! Holy smokes, who gives out free wine anymore? Seriously.

Anyway, I just felt like checking in. I'll be on periodically, so emails and LJ comments will still reach me in a reasonable time.

The train I was on was the Pacific Surfliner, which goes between San Diego and Santa Barbara (although one trip per day goes all the way to San Luis Obispo). What I really wanted to do was take the Surfliner to L.A., then switch to the Coast Starlight for the trip to SLO, but that would have gotten me there way too early.

Hearst Castle is closer to Paso Robles, which is one of the Coast Starlight stops.

Liked my trip from Antelope Valley [Metrolink] to SD via Union Station Amtrak [Surfliner] years ago. Had to pay for my snax tho' [incl. a nice stout]. Bonus @Old SD terminus, trolley to Hotel Circle.

When possible, I go anywhere by train. Going from LAX to SLO makes me extra happy, because that's how we did our 12th wedding anniversary (even though I was having major dental issues), and we received 3 bottles of champagne (2 from Amtrak!)... :D

I hope you have a great time! I love to ride the train. B and I have traveled up to Los Angeles that way a few times, and I really love the view of the surf you have while going through the costal areas of northern San Diego county and southern Orange county.

Oh, looking at the date, your trip is probably already over. Well, I hope you had a good trip. :D
