F5: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Songbird is on vacation, but left these questions for us over at the RevGals blog:
By the time you're reading this, I'll be en route to a Great Big City to see my son in a play. I'll go by car and bus and train and no doubt cab and maybe even subway. Thus, our Friday Five.

1) What was the mode of transit for your last trip?
Last trip was Greensboro, via car.
2) Have you ever traveled by train?
I took Amtrak to visit my sister's family last spring, and it was pretty great!
3) Do you live in a place with public transit, and if so, do you use it?
No. We're too small for it to be practical, I think. Not sure if I would use buses...subway and light rail would be great, though!
4) What's the most unusual vehicle in which you've ever traveled?
Duck boat? Chattanooga Choo-Choo? Double-decker bus? I don't know how unusual those are. Also frankly not sure if I rode on a Duck Boat or just watched them...
5) What's the next trip you're planning to take?
Unless I make a quick run to see my mom, I'm taking a short trip as soon as I finish the dissertation. I'm hoping that will be mid-March, but that's pretty ambitious. If I don't finish then, I'll take a longer trip around then to get all rejuvenated for whatever the new deadline will be.


  1. i used to live in greensboro when i first started teaching. really liked it and had thought of doing the MFA in writing...

    duck boats..that sounds like something my daughter would like.

  2. The most unusual mode of transportation that I ever used as a tractor, when I was sixteen and didn't know where the brakes were.
