Ok, thanks to the magic of the interwebz, I now have bus tickets to Cleveland and back, and train tickets to Erie, Albany, and back to Cleveland arranged.
I'm kind of scared actually. Been a while since I traveled alone. Even knowing I have friends at every stop along the way, the voyage will be me by myself. (When did this turn into a metaphor?)
Anyway, yeah, going to go visit friends in April. It will do me good to get away for a while.
That, and I assume the voyage will be scenic. And trains must be more comfortable than buses. Because the bus is the suck.
