I am going to Santa Fe without traveling in a car or an airplane. I will leave the house with a nice rolling luggage bag and walk to the bus stop (about a mile) then take the bus to downtown San Diego, catch the Surfliner to LA and catch the Amtrak Southwest Chief to Albuquerque and from there, the Rail Runner to Santa Fe. Pretty low carbon travel. My reading material for the trip is "Suburban Nation: The Rise of Sprawl and the Decline of the American Dream", plus I will have the Helmet Cam and will document some of the trip.
The train ride is overnight, I'll see how that is in a coach seat. I am really looking forward to traveling through the southwest in this manner.
