Ultra Tiny Housing

Road Trip

Living in an Amtrak roomette makes us appreciate how palatial our T@B is. In our roomette we have two seats that convert into a lower bunk, an upper bunk that raises up to the ceiling when not in use, and a half bath all packed into about twenty-one square feet. It’s bright and airy despite its coziness and has ample headroom but like in the T@B we have to think through and communicate with each other about every move we make. It’s a great way to travel. We’ve had a good night’s sleep (though it would have been better if we’d known where the thermostat was) and a delicious breakfast. Now we’re poised for a quick transfer to our Boston bound train in Washington DC in about 15 minutes. This is not the original plan but this train is more than two hours behind schedule. At WAS the two trains are on adjacent tracks but if we go all the way into NYP, we won’t have enough time to make the transfer and the next train to BOS isn’t for an additional three hours. Wish us luck!

    No luck this time. We missed the train to Boston by less than a minute. Apparently at Alexandria a departing coach passenger made a scene and delayed us by five minutes!

    Ugh, hopefully you’re on the move now and arriving safely shortly!

All Because of an Eclipse

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
