Railers Are Not Rail Passengers

A Railer is a rail passenger who maximizes rail passes for extensive, cheap traveling. While you can buy a Rail just for train traveling, a smarter Railer buys a pass for a necessary trip, e.g., business or funeral, in which a plane ticket would be as much or more. What does a last minute flight from the East Coast to the Midwest cost? For a lower price, you can leave the night or day before on a Rail and then have three or four weeks/weekends of free travel. If you Rail instead of fly for a funeral, be sure to toast the deceased each time you use the Rail for without their demise you would be at home.

One could do three or four weekend loops with a Rail purchased for other pressing needs. Imagine relaxing travel with wine, women and song without the hassle of gas gouging and road raging. If you have a friend or spouse, it would be a way to do new things as a chicken traveler--cheap, cheap, cheap. Depending on your annual vacation allotment, you could do one or two nine-vacations on a Rail.

There are numerous uses for Railes from the overnighter to the 28-day tours: Student, Writers North, Writers South, Around the World. Short trips are boomerangs. In between are the nine-day vacations. Before taking a nine-day rail vacation, you should first test yourself on a few weekenders. Remember bring your own food as if you were camping out and bring your motion sickness/sleeping medication.

A good Railer would do at least a nine-day vacation on the Rail. Take five days of vacation straddled by two weekends for a total of nine days. Using hostels, one can have a vacation for a few hundred dollars. In addition, one could easily include one or two three day short-distant visits to places of interest without spending a dollar on gas or encountering road rage or boredom. Flotillas
