Well, not quite.
Anyway, welcome to Balloons, Trains and Automobiles, a blog set up as a way to not only save memories from our upcoming Amtrak trip, but also to share it with the world. I, Patrick, will be joined by my brother Eric and we will be seeing the American West from the rails. The trip is still in the planning stages, but tickets have been purchased! Once a schedule gets more finalized, I may or may not post it.
You may be wondering about the name of the blog. It’s a play on the movie, Planes, Trains and Automobiles. We will be using trains and automobiles throughout our trip (and water taxis!), but instead of planes, we will be traveling (hopefully, weather permitting) by hot air balloon, since we are both avid balloonists.
Not much more to add right now, but as more details develop, we will be sure to share them.
All Aboard and Soft Landings!
