A week from today, I start my 30 hour train ride to Kansas City. Bizarre. I'm INSANE.
Why are you going to the middle of the US?
Isn't that where despair, boredom, and tornadoes are born?
Squid- knows nothing of these places
Doing presentations on historical clothing at a convention in Independence, the next city over. Yes, it's early tornado season, but they're still getting snow so we should be okay.
The first half of the ride is going to be filled with lovely scenery of the Appalachians, large Eastern cities, and a layover in Chicago.
...Then I cross the Mississippi and expect to see lots of corn.
