I thought taking the train would be cheaper than driving, but it seems like it might not be. I have no idea how much it would cost to drive down there, or how to find a cheap train ticket. Does Greyhound go that far?

Tell me your travel horror stories. Like, lost your passport, got in trouble with the mob, car broke down, got lost, mugged, attacked, scammed, etc. Gipsies, anyone?
