First, however, they're going to build the stretch of tracks that will allow you to get from SF to LA in under three hours, which is just enough time to have a few drinks, but not even enough time to watch Lord of the Rings. And because it's a train, it will be better for the environment and (hopefully) your bank account (ticket prices have yet to be set).
Only problem? This little project isn't going to be completed until 2029, which, in case you're sucky at math, is a full 14 years away. Still, it's nice to have things to look forward to, right? And sure, SF will probably be as warm as LA by then thanks to global warming, but we'll never have as many good-looking people. Which is always a great reason to get out of Dodge.
