Santa Ana's Chris Guenzler, 52, continues to roll along. He had logged 1,257,021.8 miles on railroads as of Thursday afternoon. Since 1980, he has ridden the rail in all 50 states.
More importantly, Friday is his 5,686 day of sobriety. And, yes, there is a tie - in - he credits his long hours on the rail for having helped him keep away from the addiction. You can follow him on his website: http://www.trainweb.org/chris.
