The Chainlink

We took a 9 day tour in October: train down to Quincy (yay Amtrak roll-on!) then up the Mississippi to Davenport then across the state back to chi. It was a total hoot. I posted a report of the trip here:

Hope you enjoy. If anyone has questions about logistical details etc. I'm happy to answer them.

Nice CGOAB report! Looks like you had a blast.

The trails around the Quad Cities are great; my daughter and I did GITy Up this past summer, and despite the weather (we now know out tent is only about 90% waterproof), had a great time. Loved taking the ferry over to Davenport.

Thank you so much for this report! I've been wanting to do a similar tour for a few years.

Thanks to you both! We really did have a blast.

The Quad Cities really were fantastic. If Amtrak ran a line there, we'd make the second half of this trip all the time. It would make a great three or four night trip.
