Sunday morning I have the choice of jumping on either PATH or NJT depending on when I leave. Since the Sunday fest starts from GCT, I intend to ride crosstown and start from there, rather than meeting the group in STM. Amtrak isn't worthwhile to just travel between NWK and NYP, unless one is splitting the trip with another train.
Sunday afternoon I can do the split of 163 STM-NWK, 159 NWK-MET, giving me 2 Amtrak segments for the price of one, and one hour to collect my luggage from the hotel.
Saturday I won't be in NY Penn Station to meet before the Fest train (#160). I'll be aboard the Fest train in NJ, as some of you will be as well. I purchased a ticket MET-NHV, but I'll just show up in Newark. It would have cost me more to change it.
Hopefully we will find Piotr on some of those too, with his brand spanking new, even larger headphones, collecting cheap 100 AGR point.
You.... you... you mean they make them even bigger than we've seen?
