Car, always. Hate crowds, and wouldn't want to meet that frigging TSA.

I prefer driving, unless it takes more than twenty-four hours on the road, then I'll fly.

I don't drive. I realized a long time ago it makes absolutely no sense to take a flight for a short trip (less than 500 miles). In almost every case, it's faster to take the bus or train. After you fight your way to the airport, deal with all the check-in crap, wait forever for your plane, wait for it to take off, then do the same in reverse once you land, you aren't saving any time. If it's a long-distance journey, than it's plane all the way.

Exactly!!! And it is your very own space, no one else there to tell you what to do, what not, and how you are supposed to be! ^^

It all depends. Going overseas, I'd rather a plane than a boat. Going across the country, I'd take either a plane or a train. Driving extremely long distances (10+ hours straight) is too much of a pain without someone else to switch off.

I use to like to drive - but now it's all about flying - even though I loathe the security theater that is foisted on us by airport screeners.

I am afraid to fly and taking a bus is just a miserable experience. I have never been on a train, although I would love to. So I chose car. At least in a car, you have control over when and where you stop.
03/26/2012
ksparkles16 ksparkles16
It depends how far it was but I'd choose plane or car. I love driving! I actually really love long drives. I'm not a big fan of flying. Every time I'm on a plane I think I'm going to die lol all the little noises freak me out
03/26/2012
Trepier Trepier
Depends on how far I am going. If it is overseas then of course by plane. If the drive is usually under 12 hours we will take it by car. Either just leave early in the morning and make the trip in one day or stop half way through and stay some place.

Plane. The service & experience has really gone downhill. It's still the most time efficient way.

It would depend on how far the trip was, but most likely plane if I could convince the hubby to get on one.

Plane if I have to be there by a certain time, but I really enjoy road trips through the states with some good friends by my side.

I have only traveled outside the U.S. once, when we drove to Canada one night for a casino trip. I was on a work related trip to Michigan and the guys and gals wanted a night of fun. I remember driving past a cop doing just over 100 MPH and being thankful I either wasn't seen or not worth the trouble, cause that would've been bad.

I hate traveling by bus! But, be aware, AmTrak also employs buses to run parts of their routes and also is willing to stuff people on buses if they are running late.

I paid a large sum of money several years ago and rather than taking a leisurely train trip (where I could easily sleep and PEE whenever I wanted), I was crammed onto a bus for an 8 hour trip with no toilet (or food options)! On the return trip (with a 3 year old in tow), the ENTIRE trip was by bus (the first 12 hours were planned) and then I basically had to force myself onto the second charter bus that came through the train station (they didn't hire enough buses to carry all passengers) when there was only one seat available. The people left at the train station were left there for more than 24 hours waiting for another ride!

Lesson learned though, I'll never travel by train without doing it in a sleeper car (they got priority and FOOD on the buses).

buses are terrible!i like car trips but if its too long for the amount of time that im going to stay at a location i would rather take a plane.

I really like traveling by train, but there isn't a lot of opportunities to do that in the US. I been traveling mostly by plane for longer distance and car for shorter distance.

I would pick anything BUT the bus. I am so not a fan of most bus systems. I have had way to many scary experiences on Greyhound.

I go by train in hopes that it will be robbed by bandits! It never ever happens. But some guy did get his wallet stolen once! But nobody went looking for it so I had to put my smoking jacket and pipe away...F%U% TRAINS!!!!

It really depends on where I'm going. If it is really far plane. But sometime short is always nice and fun by taking the train.

Ciao. Ciao.
Train, if it makes sense. Car if it's a shorter distance. Plane, generally only if the distance is too long or I am on a tight schedule. I don't mind taking extra time to travel and traveling by train is pretty comfortable all things considered.

I drove from Florida from Ohio and back. We took 2 vehicles and there were 8 of us. Took me over a full day to get home because of all of the stops. Next time I go that far I'm taking a plane!

I don't have my car for part of the year, so I'm usually stuck taking public transportation. I'm okay with this, except some busses get kind of sketchy. So when I'm going across many states, I get my car back.

I traveled in Europe for two months by train, and loved it. Planes are fine, but I wish we had a better rail system in the States. That would be my preference.

I really wish trains were more affordable and common in the U.S.--it seems a shame that we don't have this option more readily available to us.

I think it depends on how far i'm travelling. I quite like train journeys as it's really comfortable and the sights can be really cool, although planes are really nice as i don't tend to go on them that often and they seem qquite luxurious

Seeing as I cannot get to North America from China by anything other than boat or plane, I take a plane.

If I am travelling a great distance, I travel by plane. If I've lots of time and it is not a holiday time, I'll take a train.

I love road trips, and boat trips.

If it is under five hours, I might consider a bus... but sometimes I will get friends together and road trip it.

If it is under three kilometres, I try to walk. And if it is a pleasant day, under five.

It depends on where we are going and for what. If it's a longer stay we may drive so there is no luggage fees. I'm not scared of flying, I just find it incredibly annoying sometimes.

Definitely by plane for speed and comfort, but by train for the adventure (when you don't have to be there anytime soon)

Plane or car depending on how much time you have to travel. I fly a lot and it still amazes me how you can get from one part of the world to another in such short amount of time.

I like the open scenery of a car. All you can see are clouds from the plane... although the plane takes you there quicker, it takes longer to go by car.

Since I have my own airplane, I usually use it for far away places, otherwise I drive my SUV for everything else.

I meet so many cool people on the greyhound, but oh the stories I could tell. Once, when I was sitting in the back seat, there was this couple back there with me and they thought I was sleeping, so they started making out and then she whipped his dick out and was jacking him off. O_O I didn't know what to do, so I pretended to be asleep. . . lol

I don't ever make any friends on planes. All most anyone flying cares about is getting from point A to point B quickly.

I bet riding a train would be really fun if you can find one going where you need to go.

I usually end up driving, though. . .

If it's more than 1000 miles away, plane but train otherwise. I would take a train to see my boyfriend but it would take DAYS to get there. Trains allow you to walk and stuff.

It depends on how far. If I'm going out of the country (and not to Mexico or Canada) I have to take a boat or plan, and I prefer plane. It also depends on time constraints. If you only have so long to spend on your vacation and driving would take multiple days and you can afford it plane would be the way to go. Stuff like that. It can also depend where you are. Trains in America? Not so great. Trains in Europe and Japan? Much better. Buses can be cheap. So they can be a pretty affordable way to get around.

I prefer the train. That and a bicycle are what I use inside the nyc metro area. For the rest of the country/world, we usually drive or fly. I HATE flying, but it's just not possible to take the train to Europe.
