TOPICS NEGLECTED BY MY LACKSIDASICAL WRITING HABIT

This whole thing about saving receipts to write off traveling expenses in the guise of "research" and "writing assignments" (a topic that also includes recent trips to las Vegas, Montana, and Portland, not to mention Minnesota, Cuba, and Mexico City)

The pros and cons of Amtrak

Listing all the places I've been on this trip just for the sake of having cities names all over my blog:
Minneapolis
St Paul
East Hampton
New York City
Syracuse
Pulaski
Plattsburgh
Burlington
Albany (though not by chance)

Why am I writing?

The end of travel.

My last hurrah: how I'm tiring of travel and battling homesickness.

Green travel: counting the carbon flood the atmosphere from your super-cheap Jet Blue flight to Cancun, and trying to offset it by taking the train the whole way back (yes, the whole way).

A blow-by-blow account of this trip.

Car Rentals: Always the most expensive and slowest option?

A critique of the public transportation system of Albany: three buses from the airport to downtown is not a viable system.

Wild Birds of the Hudson Valley, Adirondack Mountains and Lake Ontario.

Taking a Nap, or How to Take a Nap, or "The Idiot's Guide to Taking a Nap".
