I spent some time this morning dreaming, as I am want to do, of how I could take a nice long trip across the country. But my fantasies were torn. Should I load up a car with jerky and my favorite classic rock hits, and take to the winding highways and byways, forging my own path across America’s wheated plains? Or should I book myself a sleeper berth on a train and cross the land by rail, patiently watching the country pass me by, reading, thinking, and taking in the joys and intrigues of train travel (which I’m aware, are not quite what they used to be).
It’s a tough call, so I put it to you, Atlas Obscura, which is the superior form of slow travel, road trip by car or a lengthy train ride? This is the final reckoning. The ultimate showdown.
