We headed down to Richmond a week or so ago for a college visit. Flying was not an option at $790 for 2 seats. Besides, who flies to Richmond from the Baltimore/Washington metro area?
So I checked out Amtrak. It would have been $192 and that seemed crazy. For a $40 tank of gas, we were all set.
Remind me next time to take the train.
PS: I had no idea that the speed limit on I-295 in DC was 50MPH. But trust me – I won’t forget.
