Great story about perseverance. It's awesome you stuck it out so long. I have a question about the auto train.

In the 00's I used to make the trip from Destin Florida -> Norfolk VA and back 2-3 times a year and I had no idea about the auto train until after I moved to the west coast. How is the service? Other than saving miles on the car and not having to drive would you use it again? I feel like I missed out on an experience.

Hey EL. Yeah I would use it again-been thinking of taking it Northbound and driving back thru the mountains coming back to FL. It only goes from Sanford FL to Lorton VA and back.. and the train runs overnight.
I took a regular seat going NB and a small private room coming back down to FL. The seat was maybe $200 and the room was close to $500.. a lot.
and the car is close to $250-ish.
Difference was that after I had the room and I woke up, I actually felt really rested. And it came with a good dinner too.
For sure there are cheaper ways to go.. but they took care of the car and didn’t hoon about in it or anything and folks on the train were chill.
Expensive, yes. Do it again, definately.
