I hopped on the train and rode it up to White River Junction, Vermont. Next to me was a guy named Matt. We had a good time rolling up north drinking a Black Box of wine. Matt has invited me to stop by his place and go gold panning.
The train ride was slower than expected. It’s a hot day for up here. Once the temps hit 90 degrees, the train has to slow down to 30mph due to potential track warpage.
