  1. I agree, but unfortunately it will not happen for some time as biodiesel is not a safe alternative, biofuel will starve the rest of the world as it already takes 600lbs of corn to fill up one tank in a Tahoe running biofuel. Have Mike get you a nice big screen HDTV and a PS3 for the Blu-Ray. Get Planet Earth, popcorn, and watch the world from the couch. I'm lazy that way.

  2. The train is less expensive than flying but takes a little more time than driving. Of course, you don't have to pull over to use the restroom, so that's a major plus. I've taken Amtrack to Utah before. It's a beautiful trip and the seats are comfy, but it took us 19 hours. I can drive it in 15. But I can't sleep while I drive, so the train is better. Of course, flying takes about an hour, with an hour at the airport in both directions. So it's a toss up.

  3. I used to ride the old GM+O in the sixties, and still love trains. But at this point I love driving more. I'd really love to drive cross country some time, and if airfares continue the way they're going, it just might happen.

  4. I love trains and driving. I had time for the train to Minnesota, just didn't think of it in time. I love driving and used to do it all the time, but these days, a companion is required on long trips—big limitation on spontaneity. Had I driven, I could've seen the Corn Palace in So. Dakota, and the world's largest ball of twine, etc. Yeah, I miss road trips!

  5. Do you know that I have BEEN to the Mitchell, S.D. corn palace? A while ago, and it was closed the day we went, but no matter, I've been there. I thought the largest ball of twine was just a joke from the Chevy Chase movie; maybe not.
