I'm en route to Chicago from San Francisco (well, really Emeryville) to visit my brother. I've got my iphone which I hacked last night to allow my laptop to use the Internet via ad hoc wireless. I've got 3 full batteries, so we'll see how long I can keep the trainblog going.
Hour 1: Left Emeryville. I could see the skyline, Berkeley marina, Carquinez straight and San Pablo bay. The ATM at the station qas broken so I had to rush out and find a gas station so I could eat for the next 55 hrs. We'll see how on time this train thing is.
