:confused: You were scared of cows?! :rofl: I'm sorry, dude; but that's just funny to me. My uncle used to have a couple of farms, one for beef cattle...herfords, and one for hay. There was one young bull that used to give me a hard time; but he got "snipped" into a steer. The cows though...well...that's just funny to me. No offense. :D

well, you could drive or go by train.

and i don;t just mean going on holiday. i also mean just doing fun stuff like going to a concert/gig or just doing soemthing you are really "into" (like sky diving, backpacking across the country, visiting some museum or historical site, etc.)

Oh, if anyone on here has a chance to go by train or has never thought about it...let me highly recommend it. My wife and I took our honeymoon on AmTrak on a crosscountry train ride from Chicago to Portland on the Empire builder. Let me tell you, there is nothing like it. Looking out the window as the landscape changes is phenominal. I only wish we'd had more time so we could have gotten off in some of the little towns and cities along the way. We did get to stop in Shelby, MO, which excited me as a boxing fan...'course she thought I was nuts. :D But, seeing the plains and buttes of the Dakota's, the Rockies in Colorado, the hills and geography of Washington and Oregon...absolutely breathtaking.

Go By Train...if you ever get a chance; but make sure you get a sleeping compartment. It feels like you're sailing on the land.

yea, i guess it depends on what you will be doing.
getting up at 4 AM to go milk the cows or to shovel horse poo would not be my idea of fun either. though i would love to do some sightseeing...see some irish castles or something.

LOL!!! How much you wanna bet you did have a door? On our first night on the train...the innitail "wedding night", we thought all we had was a curtain, too. Turns out the door was just slid all the way in and we didn't know any better.

I'm sure glad we changed trains in Chicago. :rolleyes:

Hell, even with the door, those rooms aren't soundproof. On the return trip from Portland, we got a couple of those "looks"..not bad, just looks of "uh, huh" ;)

I will say this, though...the motion of the train makes things...urm...Interesting. :D

All innuendos aside, it was romantic and we both want to do it again some day. If we could, we'd do it once a year.

I did the same thing on my honeymoon ! We took the Rocky Mountain Rail tour from Vancouver throught the Canadian Rockies passing through Jasper, Banff and ending up in Calgary Alberta. Breathtaking scenery and awsome on board commentary. I never thought riding a train would be that fun.
