If I can work it out (time and logistics) always the train. I love trains. Otherwise planes. I hate driving long distances, especially as the driver. 90 minutes is my max before I need a break when in a car, but no one else wants that so I’m stuck for hours.
well what is long distance to a person? we take our dog with us so we use our car for trips. we just did florida so it was about 1250 miles one way. the very seldom trips without our dog are via plane.
It’s been about a month and a half since we left our sticks n bricks home and hit the road for a year or two (or more?) in an RV. There’s something to be said for having your bed and (some of) your stuff and your pets with you as you travel and thus far, that something is “WTF broke now?” I have been assured by old hands at this that it will get better.
@LinnE I did that about 20 years ago on a “New motorhome” and yes, there were an amazing number of items on the to-fix list. Luckily most were minor. Best way to get them fixed was to go to the factory which was 2000 miles away, which we did because it was a good excuse for a trip (and why else would anyone go to Alabama?..)
but over time you either fix the things or learn to live with how things work or how to make them work well enough to work for you, so it does get better.
being from rhode island, long distance is anything beyond twenty minutes. we still go by car. probably the longest drive is to see my family which can take up to two hours one way if there’s traffic. i hate every second of it but it’s worth it for the time i get to spend with them. (36 today and i’ve never not woken up at my parents house on christmas!)
longer than that? don’t know, wouldn’t be interested.
@PooltoyWolf One of my favorite train trips was Rome to Paris with a school group. All the kids had never been on a train before, much less on a sleeper. Since I spoke French the steward put my wife and I in a separate space and brought us a bottle of Champagne… Good times!
