You know, I was thinking that exact same thing as
the story went on.
The one (important) thing I got from Tom's story
was that kids might like the idea of the trip,
but the details might seem boring. Although,
I'm sure, Tom had a blast.
I was planning a similar trip from Astoria Queens, NYC
which is sea level, to Adirondack Mountains, upstate New York.
Never found enough friends to make it tho :(
