If you leave Portland Oregon at 10pm and you're traveling by train how long would it take to arrive at Louisville?
Three hours longer than the actual train-ride time, if you count the time-zone changes as actual time expended to get there. This is technically called hillbilly jet-lag. Take a plane, its quicker......and I was assuming Louisville, Kentucky.
Because in the 1800s, legislators had to travel to the Capital by horse or stagecoach. It frequently took a week or more for everyone to arrive in Oregon City, the Territorial Capital. So when Oregon became a state, they chose Salem because it is still close to Portland and Eugene (the major population centers), yet made travel easier for the legislators from Eastern Oregon.
The quickest way to get to Portland, ME from New York City is to take a train to Boston and an Amtrak Thruway Bus to Portland. The bus is available right at Boston's South Station that receives the trains from NYC. Trains with connecting bus service leave NYC at 8:30 am and 12:03 pm and the buses arrive in Portland at 4:10 pm and 6:10 pm, respectively. Coming back, the buses leave Portland at 12:30…
It is generally not a problem to take food items on an airplane. The problem is when you arrive at your destination. If you are traveling to a different country and need to go through customs when you arrive there you may have problems bringing food, particularly meat, fruits and vegetables, into that country. You should check the laws and regulations in place in the country that you are traveling to.
