My 50th birthday was spent with family near Austin, Texas. My wife and I travel mostly by plane so this time we wanted to try something different... A train!!! We booked a "roomette" on Amtrak's Texas Eagle from Palm Springs, California to Austin, Texas. A roomette is nice because it's your own private room with a locking door, from the inside. But, it's 6' 6" by 3' 6". I'm 6' 4"! Sooo yea it was a little cramped to say the least, especially when the two beds were down. The whole trip was 60 hours total in the train. I'm kinda surprised my wife didn't divorce me after spending 60 hours in a "closet" together! LOL! She's a keeper!!! The train ride was a great experience but if we ever do a long trip like that again, we'll probably get the larger family room. These family rooms have a couch, beds and its own bathroom. To pass the time I used my new iPhone 11 to take a few videos during the train ride. This whole video thing is relatively new to me and I'm really enjoying the process. Here's a short video our our train ride, all shot on my iPhone. ALL ABOARD!!!
