My buddy and I were looking into the Castaway Caboose where the Durbin Rocket strands you in the middle of the woods for a few days. Has anyone taken the trip? What is the caboose like inside? How much food will I need to take? Is it worth the money?

I have not personally stayed in the caboose, but I have been in them (there are 2). They drop you off at the end of the line about 4 miles from Durbin along the river. The cabooses have full kitchen, bath, shower & heat. There is no cell phone service in that area.

At least I find the the caboose cabing idea very interesting. How do I convince the rest of my family this is better than Orlando?
