The Aboveground Railroad
We took the train from DC to New Orleans, which was quite a nice experience. We are now in New Orleans, prepping to start out tomorrow. I don't have much time to write, but I will upload some pictures to the picasa gallery momentarily.
I have recently been working on a bike route that is themed after early American Industry and travels the C and O Canal, the Great Allegheney Passage, up to the Erie Canal, down the Hudson river valley, and back to DC. I call it the NationBuilders Route (google maps link). Having ridden about 70% of it personally, I can say it would be a nice trip. See blog post for more.
