Last weekend my wife and I went to New Jersey. This was our first time being East of the Mississippi… actually, our first time East of New Mexico and North of Colorado. Along with this we experienced several other “firsts.” Before arriving in New Jersey, this Arizona suburban boy had never ridden a public bus (with the exception of school buses) or a train. After we arrived at Newark airport, we had to do both in order to get to our final destination. So, here’s a nice shot to remember our first train ride by.
