Lies & Betrayals

Last Saturday I made a pretty firm commitment to surprise the city of Boston this weekend. I might have been drinking at the time, and have my 4th mustard-colored outfit of the day on, but I was adamant it was going to happen. And on the train too! 

Things that I knew, and was OK with: 
⒈ Amtrak does not come to Madison.
⒉ Amtrak takes 24 hrs. to get from Milwaukee to Boston.
⒊ Amtrak cost $40 more roundtrip than a direct flight.

What I assumed:
⇒ Amtrak has wireless interent.

What I learned Sunday morning:
 Amtrak offers wireless internet on 2 routes—the Downeaster from Portland, ME to North Station in Boston and, just recently, the Acela.
 Assumptions make an ass out of you and Amtrak.


Later Jesse.
