Fall Amtrak Vacation Trip 2012: More Great Photos From This Incredible Trip
  This year's trip saw me take a record number of photos at just over 1,500! There's always photos in a trip this big that don't really fit into any one category but nonetheless I still want to include in the travelogue, so you'll see those photos here! These cover a little bit of everything, enjoy!
Yours truly at Buffalo-Depew Station holding up the first ticket of an eventual 6 on what would be the start of my last trip using
paper tickets. Amtrak has since converted to electronic ticketing so this trip has some historical significance for me!
The inside of Amtrak Heritage Diner #8532 which was on the train the night I left Buffalo on this trip. This is known as the
Temoinsa interior with the green and pink decor throughout the car.
A 2012 Toyota Camry LE which was my rental car in Sandusky, OH this year.
I have no idea how a rental car with Texas plates ended up in Ohio!
The Fairfield Inn By Marriott which for the third year in a row, was my hotel while in Sandusky. This is one of the nicest hotels in the area!
The 2012 Nissan Quest minivan which was my ride while in La Plata, MO. This was not my first choice for a vehicle since I was travelling
alone but this was all Enterprise had available. To their credit though, I was still charged the rate for a Standard Size vehicle which was
cheaper and was given a full tank of gas at no charge. I have no idea how a rental car with South Dakota plates ended up in Missouri!
The Holiday Inn Express in San Luis Obispo which was my hotel for my overnight stay there. They have a really good breakfast!!!
A 2012 Ford Fusion SEL which was my rental car in California. This one had California plates on it unlike my first 2 cars that
had plates for states other than Missouri and Ohio!
The Gaviota Tunnel on US Highway 101 as taken from the Gaviota Rest Area.
The Courtyard By Marriott Hotel in Oxnard, my "home base" for 4 nights while in California. This is my favorite hotel chain!
  Well, after 14 days on this incredible trip, it's time for me go home. Due to time constraints, I had to fly back, and chose to fly on Southwest Airlines. For some closing thoughts about this journey that I'll never forget, click in the link below...
