I am in Austin

I am in Austin for a few days. I took the Amtrak down. I do not really like to fly, and I put off registering for the conference I am attending, so I would have had to pay a lot. I decided to take the Amtrak since I think it might be cheaper than driving, and it would be less wear and tear on my car.

When I calculated the costs, I assumed gas would be $4/gallon. But I saw a few signs along the way, and it is $3.75/gallon at a lot of places. It is possible that driving may be cheaper, especially since I have to stay an extra day since the Amtrak leaves at 9:30 AM. But like I said, less wear and tear on my car is a huge bonus. If I do move, I will need it to run. If it broke down on the way down here or on the way back, I would really be up a creek.

I think the Amtrak came from Texarkana to Dallas a bit south of Interstate 30, and a bit west of Interstate 35 from Fort Worth to Austin. Texas looked a bit greener (especially from Texarkana to Dallas) than when I drove. Which is odd since there were all those fires last years.

There were a LOT of old trains at the Temple station. I took a lot of pictures.
