Shameless Amtrak plug ahead.
August 4, 2008
No, I don’t work for Amtrak. But, verily, I love el train for its (relative) energy efficiency.
So I’d like to share some Amtrak super-special deal news. Apparently, through August 8, Amtrak is running fare specials on several lines up and down the West coast. Get this: Seattle to Portland for $24 each way. Snap! I’m on it. You have to travel between September 2 and December 11 (no Labor Day or Xmas, peeps, and Thanksgiving is a blackout date), but there are plenty of days still up for grabs.
Check it out, trainheads.
