I know I screwed up the ending but we all have automobiles and that's not what I'm curious about...


How close is the nearest train station? When was the last time you were there?

Nearest Airport? Last time you were there?

How close is the nearest ferry? Been on it?





I was just thinking, I've been picking Tom up each afternoon at one of the many train stations around here. And on the news the other day they are talking about closing one of the ferry that goes from CT to Long Island, NY and lots of people are outraged. And again there is talking about expanding Tweed airport, they want to get it to be as busy as Bradley.... so... what's it like 'round your parts?

I'm not sure how to answer this because there are different trains. We have trains here that literally go all over the country. I've never been on one of those but the station is in Cleveland. Probably 30 minutes.
Trains, like monorails.. we don't have (that I know of).



Nearest Airport? Last time you were there? We're about 30-45 minutes from the airport, depending on traffic. I was there a few weeks ago, don't care to be again for many years. LOL

How close is the nearest ferry? Been on it? I don't think we have a ferry anywhere near us. I know there is a ferry going to put-in-bay but that's no where near us.

I'm not sure about the train station. Never been there.

The closest airport to me is 20 minutes away. I was just there yesterday. I'm there once a year at least if not more..

Ferry? Hmmm.......I'm guessing maybe the ferry in Long Beach that takes you to Catalina Island. I think that's where it is lol! Haven't been yet..

The nearest train station is 5 minutes away if there is no traffic. Can be up to an hour if there is! Downtown get's pretty crazy round here...
--never been on the trains around here!

Airport: Non-commercial, 10 minutes, Commercial I think is 45 min away.
--Never been on a plane

Ferry is 25 minutes.
--again, never been on the ferry either LOL

How close is the nearest ferry? Been on it?
