friday five: planes, trains and automobiles

At RevGals Songbird writes: By the time you're reading this, I'll be en route to a Great Big City to see my son in a play. I'll go by car and bus and train and no doubt cab and maybe even subway. Thus, our Friday Five.

1) What was the mode of transit for your last trip?
That would be the ever-faithful car. I love road trips.

2) Have you ever traveled by train?
I used to take either the train or bus to visit my grandparents in NYC. And of course in the UK, the train is the way to go!

3) Do you live in a place with public transit, and if so, do you use it?
My little town is the terminus of the only public transit rail line to Nashville. I've taken it once. Said little town does not have any other public transportation.

4) What's the most unusual vehicle in which you've ever traveled?
At the time it was unusual, but not so much anymore: a stretch SUV-limo that seated 25 people. It was a Chamber of Commerce event to a celebrity car race at the old Nashville Speedway (Mark Collie, for you country music fans!). Somewhere I have a picture, I'll have to dig it out, scan and post one of these days!

5) What's the next trip you're planning to take?
I'm going on retreat in another week, but I don't really call that a trip. I suppose the next trip in the works will be for our son's wedding in April, to Augusta, GA. We'll combine that with our annual spring visit to Melrose, which is essentially in the metro Augusta area.

Have a wonderful trip, SB!

I keep forgetting that you're in TN. So is my mom, and it drives me nuts that Amtrak doesn't go to Nashville.

i always wonder who hires those limos. seem really huge--like driving a city block around.

i absolutely LOVE the goats picture header--makes me smile b/c for a number of years we raised nubians for milk and they followed us around like pups after being bottle fed!

speaking of stretch limos I used to take stretch buses in Chicago - think almost two bus lengths separated by an accordion connecter that allowed it to turn corners....
