I got my train tickets for my birthday weekend in NYC today. I cashed in 10,500 Amtrak miles to get a First Class Acela ticket going from DC to NY on the evening of April 7. It will be the first time I’ve ever taken Acela First Class before, and that should be interesting. I get to use Club Acela for free that day.
Coming home, I’m on the 11 AM train Monday morning, April 10, which means I have to take the day off from work.
