I'm going to go to San Francisco to visit my brother, his wife, and my nephew. I'm strongly considering taking Amtrak or Greyhound instead of flying. It'll be cheaper and more relaxing and I'll get more reading in. Primarily because both options will take about 20 hours each instead of 5 hours.
I'm thinking of continuing on Greyhound after that, stopping in small towns across America solving crimes and assisting locals against nefarious businessmen who run these towns.
