Did you ever play the game of Leap Frog as a kid? I remember it from my early elementary years, but I have to be honest, that it wasn’t one of my favorite games.
The train from Boston won’t be the first one I take though. I’m going to catch Amtrak’s Southwest Chief in Hutchinson, Kansas when I head back out to the trail which will take me to Chicago. There I will change trains to the Capitol Limited in which I will have a sleeper car to catch some rest before arriving at the Harpers Ferry station which is practically on the trail. Now how convenient is that? And what an added bonus to this adventure!
