What I thought. You get to avoid that customs charge, and you get to use Canadian cash (it's even more Monopoly than the Clydesdale and BoS notes, THEY'VE GOT A FUCKING GOOSE ON IT!)

If you do the 10-15 October dates come to Baltimore on the 12th! That's my hometown. (:

I'm taking a bus from Baltimore to go to the NY show. It's about a 4 hour drive so you could take a train but it may be more expensive than a bus.
I'm still debating on whether or not to go to the Philly show, I have class at 8 AM the next morning so it depends on if I can skip it or not haha.

If I do go to all three I'll see you at Philly & NY! If not I'll at least see you at NY! (:

Hmm. It depends when I can get flights and stuff. Id probably take a train, I detest travel on buses lol. It surprises me how poor the train service is in the US, you can get anywhere in the UK by train.

This. America has such a diverse set of climates and conditions that a lot of Americans do (and could) have summer 'staycations'. It's disappointing knowing that they'd have to fly domestically or plod along in their massive gas Humvee. America needs to be at the forefront of climate change considering y'know, they cause a lot of the bloody problem. A proper, environmentally sound rail infrastructure neeeeeeds to implemented asap.

On a tangent, if any of you beautiful Americans decide to come over here for a couple of shows or just to visit check out the 'Eurostar' and find some promotions. It's a train that'll take you from the middle of London (or Kent, but Kent's for weirdos and inbreds...) to Paris, Lille, Brussels or Amsterdam for sometimes as little as £39. The train goes under the sea too which is always exciting because you'll end up singing that song from The Little Mermaid and not feel like a total gimp about it.

It's really hard to do such a thing when the US is such a massive fucking country. It's damn near impossible to implement one, because you'd have to basically make it within walking distance of everywhere.

It's very true, I mean you get cities like NYC or D.C. that have relatively good means of transportation in terms of buses, metros, subways, etc etc within that city. However since the US is so massive it's hard to maintain public transportation country wide when most likely a lot of the trains wouldn't be used. Sadly a lot of the trains that used to go cross country don't really operate anymore. For Americans at least time is a major factor as well - a train from NY to CA would take days where as a plane takes a couple hours. Not that I'm trying to justify the use of planes! But it's easy to say the US's public transportation sucks when you compare it to the UK which is significantly smaller in scale. In addition trains here aren't exactly affordable when it comes to the length of time that you have to be on them. For example my mom and her friend went to the US Open and were going to take a train but the grand total for a round trip would have been over 250 dollars per person where as if they took a 45 min flight it was only 100 dollars per person.

Basically I think public transportation in the US has to be completely redone to make it A. More accessible and B. More affordable. I think people would be more willing to use them if they were convenient but usually the trains here end up being more of a hassle and you have to end up using other alternative means whether it be buses, taxis or cars to get to your exact destination. Unfortunately most Americans are lazy.

Yes, Americans are lazy, but still, it wouldn't work! For it to work properly, you would need to have a stop basically within walking distance of everything. It just doesn't work in this massive fucking country of ours. Planes are cheaper and faster, so I don't know why anyone would choose trains over planes.

Okay, fine, but still, it's a major inconvenience, so the average person won't think about that when the trade-off is so drastic. I really think more research needs to be put into a cheap and efficient electric/hydrogen/whatever car.

It's not THAT much of an inconvenience, I mean ES did a US tour in an envirovan running off oil and said they had less breakdowns with that vehicle than a standard fuel car. The stuff is there but the government needs to subsidise that shit pronto.
