Location: 15 Minutes from Gainesville

Train ride was somewhat more comfortable than an airplane, although the much quieter ride meant that all the little sounds of everyone else, including the baby across the aisle crying until 1 am, and the kid in the seat behind me who picked up after him and alternately squealed and played a game with annoying popping noises, meant it wasn't all that easy to get a great sleep.

Sleep came more readily, though, once I figured out I could lift the bottom of the seat into a leg rest. Though, I can't get it to go back down now!

Still, I feel rested enough for getting started. Due to arrive in Gainesville in about 15 minutes, so then, breakfast and hiking to soon follow!
