Today the Electronic Nomad is working form a perch above the Ashland Meat Company @ Cross Brothers Grocery. I have a brilliant view of the tracks along Railroad Avenue. My eyes and ears enjoy the sounds of each passing Amtrak and CSX train, and my stomach growls as I think about the sandwiches they are fixing downstairs, and the Baltimore & Ohio Roast Chicken they’re cooking across the street at the Iron Horse Restaurant.
The next time you’re tooling down I-95 between DC and Richmond, get off at Exit 92, head west to Railroad Avenue, turn left and park. Have a meal. Spend a few hours here. Spend a day. I guarantee you will be glad you did.
I’m jumping into the world of Always Connected Personal Computers – my Microsoft Surface Pro X is on the way. I’ll be blogging about it – my “Cloud Warrior” series starting this weekend.
A great month this month with SCRIBEDELIVERY. Zebra Midliners showed up just as my last highlighter was running low. And I have been waiting for an excuse to try the Uni Signo pens.
And Denik Notebooks? Just brilliant, a slightly more creative change from my long shelves of Moleskines.
Hectic and short trip.
Stay classy, San Diego. See you soon!
Things I love about Amtrak: the box of healthy train treats handed out in Business Class on the Pacific Surfliner.
I brought food of my own (a habit I learned in China,) but these goodies are a nice supplement during the 5 hour trip.
Actor/musician Jack Black and his family were aboard as well. Very cool folks and the kids were impeccably behaved.
Aboard at Oxnard. San Diego bound. Window seat. Business Class.
This is the way to travel!
I think you are cool if…
…you think “B.J.” stands for something you carry around inside a notebook.
