    Good question. Why do you train? My goal is to improve the remaining assets that I possess and mitigate the growing deficiencies that occur with injury and aging. Life is all about the contingency plan even after the dirt nap.

    Strig is an undercover agent and wouldn't let us put him on camera.

    That statement could go downhill fast I think......


    I took a passenger train here in Maine with my parents once. I was hung over. Damn trains rock and wobble. It was horrible.

    Wendy and I are headed to Durango Colorado to ride a train this month. I'll let you know if I like trains after we get back.

    That's a long way for a train ride. Surely you two could just hop a freight train for a few miles to test it out.

    This one has a glass ceiling and winds through the Rockies. Also planning to climb a couple of 14ers while there so the foothills in Alabama don't have that.

    The view was spectacular as the tracks ran where roads do not go. The rythmic rocking sucked.

    Is it a narrow gauge train? I remember hearing someone talk about a narrow gauge that works up through the mountains in CO but can't remember where it was at.
