Thanks to the miracle of modern cell phone technology, I am able to blog from the Auto Train somewhere in northern Virginia. We frantically tried to get everything packed up last night, and we came very close. Our goal was to leave this morning at 7:30 am, and we pulled out at about 8:10 (which was my real goal!) We made excellent time and made it to the train station in Lorton at about 12:30. We easily checked in as there were very few people there and waited until about 3:00 when we boarded the train. So far so good!
More to come.
