Perhaps a long rail trip could get him out of the limelight. My dad once met a labor union official who was on his way from Portland to Washington, DC. The guy was being hunted by the media and the feds; his presence at a congressional investigation was required. He was seated in the dining car with my dad and they had a nice conversation about the three-night trip. The union official was working on his testimony when he went back to his sleeping car room. [I was too young when we heard about this, but I suspect it was on the Olympian Hiawatha via Tacoma or Seattle, rather than the obvious closely watched trains from Portland to Chicago.]
